Raced a nice looking Golf one night. Had 17'* and an exhaust. now I know about these cars, and they have a shitload of nut. Well this guy got a good look at me and my car and he was like what the hell is that. And I had seen this car around town before that night. Well the light turned green and we both took off and on his way to shifting into second I was gone. If I wasn't gone by the time he hit third he might of took me, so I was lucky even though he has a high 1 liter low 2 liter engine. Good race, nice kill.

I don't think it was a VR6 GTI, and I hear those are way fast. It was a nicely done up golf though. Just evidently the guy didn't know how to race or maybe he was just babying it, that'* why he lost.

Nice kill! I killed a Golf too. Had a big fart can and 17 or 18" rims. That thing was SLOW. At least compared to me and how fast I smoked him. I think he didn't know how to drive it because a Ford Focus kept up with me better than this guy! But of course I still creamed the Focus.

Golf GTI'* with the VR6 engine (2.8L) do 0-60 mph in 7.1 seconds. GTI'* with the 1.8T engine do 0-60 mph in 7.44 seconds. VW Golf'* with the base 4-cylinder (2.0L) do 0-60 in about 8.5 seconds. Golf TDI'* (1.9L) do 0-60 mph in... don't waste your (premium, in my case) gas racing him. Let him think he ran you. It will make his day.

Just remember, if the Focus has "SVT" on it'* bumper, and you are N/A, you will lose.

a white ssei is my dream car. I plan on getting one once my se kicks the bucket. I want to really deck it out, but keep it relatively clean, you know.
