    The race was on. 02 SS vs 04 GTO - Happy winner !!!

    Well, this race has been building up for months. My wife has been impossible to live with since she traded in her 09 Honda Accord for an Impulse Blue 2004 GTO with the SAP. I have had my 02 SS for a year and a half and she keeps telling me " I thought this car would be faster " I currently run 12.66 @ 108 at Island Dragway, this is a bolt on M6 vehicle. She tell me stories about going to work and passing vehicles at 110 and how she blows away Mustangs all day long. So we set up a race on a long stretch of backroad by a reservoir and marked out 1/4 mile on the flatest, straightest stretch of road and ran a two out of three race.
    Well she has an A4 and I have an M6, we both turned off the traction control and waited for Garry, our flagman to drop his hands ( Just like Pinks ). She pulled away from the start, I went up in smoke. She let her car do the shifting and I was pulling gears at 6200 rpm. she had me at the half way point but those bolt ons started to earn their cost. I could see she had her foot through the floor and so did I, we pulled even with the end in sight. I was in forth and so was she. It was just a matter of HP, keep you foot down and hold on. As I began to pass her at around 100 mph I looked over at her and saw that she was flipping me off. She gave me the finger at 100 mph. That's true love. I finally got her by about 3 cars in the end according to our spotter. When I pulled over she put down her window, I poked my head into her car to say " Let's do it again " I found out she had the A/C on along with the radio and a bottle of Coke in the console. I thought we were in a race and she thought she was going to work. We ran again and it results were about the same. I took the first two even with spinning the tires in first and second. BTW, she is bone stock except for a K&N filter. Frost is getting her PCM next month. Well, that's it. SS 2 GTO 0.

    Should have swapped cars-unless she can't drive a manual. I can hear it now, "If you can't find it, grind it!"

    Good kill

    From now on, when you go somewhere, and the question arises, Which car should we take? You can just say, let's take the faster one.

    LOL at the part where she flips you off. I'd expect my girlfriend to do the same. Good kill.

    Shame on you! Picking on a girl! BTW, I believe that the air conditioning shuts down when you go WOT.
