i dont know why but a mk iv gti, thats the generation before the current one i believe, 1.8t dont know mods if he had any... he looked like he had stock exhaust. but anyways he baited me into a race... well we caught a light together so he didnt have to do much baiting cause that almost never happens out of the blue like that.
so the light goes green he reacted quick and i guess i fell asleep at the light, when i finally reacted i got into it too deep and burnt up my balding tires and got sideways i had to get totally out of the gas, giving him a huge jump, he was probably 4-5 cars out on me from the light, but i gave chase anyways catching him by 70ish, where we both had to kill it because of traffic. since i didnt pass him and he hit the brakes first as we caught the traffic i guess i have to give him a win i hate to say it but its true.
so now i'm pissed i couldnt believe i got such a ****ty start but as luck would have it we caught the next light about a mile and a half later. it was actually the light for the police station lol but there were no cop cars in sight so we go. this time when the light turns green i'm alert and we leave at the same time, this time i ease into the throttle dont spin and restored the order to the world by giving him a good spanking by about 1-1 1/2 bus lengths to 80ish when i let out cause the outcome was decided. i have to say that 1.8t is quicker than i thought maybe he was chipped and or intake it looked and sounded like a stock exhaust
my car is a 93 z28 a4 hooker catback, qtp cutout, k&n cai, vortec elbow, high flow cat, tb bypass, tb airfoil, rk sport ss hood

Nice Kill! Yeah those Gti's are pretty quick but not much competition over all. I got into a quick little go fast race with one that happened to be rolling in a lane over from me and he stuck with me for a sec but i had him in no time.

Had 2 guys (one in a brand new GTI and one in the next year series down) rev at me on my way home form work in the summer, minding my own business. The older one looked pretty modded and the new one stock. They got F*%K#N OWNED!!! Dead serious, it was a total ass raping! I got off at my exit and I was heading to the local advance auto parts, and they followed me. Thought they might try to start shit, but they just drove by. Woulda been a bad idea considering I had my tools, especially my framing hammer in the car haha.

Those cars aint shit unless modded bigtime... the vr6 gti's will put up more of a fight but unless any of them are running serious mods (big ass turbo's) they are not much to fear.
BUT: when modded they can be pretty darn quick! My buddy has a VR6 GTI with a big turbo and all the goods, on 3 pounds of boost he would kick my ass, and it is built to run at like 20-25 psi all day long. Serious shit!

Is the Golf the Same thing as the GTI? I raced one with the VR6 with a 07 Eclipse GT and beat the crap out of it. He stayed close until I hit 2nd gear and it was no more farfegnugen for him.

those 1.8T can be made pretty fast... but it takes alot to get them into the 300whp range... I got a friend who is in the market to buy one that has probably 200whp... he thinks he can keep up with me...
we'll see me posting soon how I got 6 buslenths on him... or something...
Nice Kill btw!
