Default You know your car is slow when.....

You race a 1993 Dodge Caravan with 251,000 km, and he holds with you the entire way, and then you let off and he blows by.

That happened tonight. I dropped it from 20 km/h, got ******* crazy wheelspin, front end slid sideways. Hooked up after 2 seconds, left it to the floor, he rode my *** the entire time. It was my friend from work. I had 3 people including me in the car, he had just him.......

Thoughts anyone? Good news transmission wasnt slipping like I previously posted, its just wheelspin ( its -30 degrees celcius here during the day )

It happens. Sounds like you let him get to his "sweet spot" before you finally got traction...
