Default 2000 SSEI vs. 2000 Golf GTI VR6

The rapist: 2000 SSEi bone stock

The victim: 2000 Golf GTI VR6, 5-speed, Neuspeed Intake, Supersprint racing exhaust, lowered with Michelin Pilot'* on 4 corners

The occasion: Light turns green. Tires squeal. VR6 gains a foot on me until 20 km/h. Then, we even out at around 40 km/h. He pulls 2nd. He loses half a car length. My first gear climaxes. He is now a full car length behind. The SSEi changes into 2nd. The VR6 continues to fall behind. He never catches up. I shut her down at 120 km/h (twice the speed limit) happy as a clam.

I find it funny how people will rate speed in KM, but then when it comes to distance they say a" foot"

Never the less. Great Kill!

The metric system is a communist plot against America. I know it for a fact! The guys in the black helicopters told me!!

Bah, the US needs to switch to metric. There'* only two other countries in the entire world that use Standard measurements.

Agreed, working in multiples of 10 is better then fractions...
