Default Your favorite race from last year?

Well it's a new year, and as everyone knows the SS section gets pretty damn slow during these winter months(speaking of winter, we're saposed to get 6-16" dumped on us up here by this time tomorrow).

Anyways, curious what everyones favorite race/run was last year. what was it against and who took the W?

Mine would have to be the numerous races with MRTstang. All very close, got closer and closer as the season went on and he modded his car/figured out his new setup. Cant wait to see what we can do next season as I should be adding about 30-50whp and he's talking about making a few changes. Here's the vids of all our races, starting with meeting up in the spring and working down.

There was a pair of them there, don't think either was stock. Obviously it blew my doors off. The guy was holding up staging lanes waiting for a car he wanted to run and appeared to pick me ( also later picked by some ridiculous turbo civic with a bull horn lol)

2013 was a wash for me as far as racing goes, didnt do as much as usual was making changes to the car and was the first year I didnt beat any personal records. I expect 2014 to be a good one as I wrap up my car this spring.

My gopro died in the lanes so no video but I think pass #4 was the GTR, I cant think of anything else I ran that night that would have 60'ed that way.

I will definitely have to say that my favorite of the year was against the boy in the S2 Neon. He talked SO much ****, just to lose. Then he tries to run back to the spot and say he outran me, forgetting I had the gopro mounted, lol. Best part of the whole gig, he sold the car the VERY next day.

Nice races!................
97, you and that Neon looked pretty close in some of them races....

My favorite was with an 04 GTO. We paced each other for a couple miles before we finally got lined up at a stoplight. Looked over at one another and gave the nod (it's on!).......Green light Go and by the time I'm in third I have a car (maybe 2) on him and stayed in it long enough to make sure he wasn't going to pull me up top............
.........I've ran side by side with a couple LS1 F-bodies before but this Goat is the only "wuan" I can say I beat..........
......At the next light the driver did confirmed the Goat was completely stock.........But hey, it was still my win............

I guess, this was my favorite. My buddies camaro, I leave slow on the 3rd honk when racing friends as most arent too quick on that. Second run he says he felt he jumped me but eh. We can never find a definite winner its always a back and forth thing between our cars. At this time all I had was Catback, drag radials and a canned tune and cold air intake. He had cold air intake, full exhaust, long tubes and all ( this was prior to his switch to magnaflow thus the horrible sound) and I believe he still hadnt gotten his pcm by frost at this point.


Ps. first run was to 120 second run we agreed to let off at 100

Love the vid 97. those neons are pretty fast for what they are from a high roll, anything low or dig tho and they're out of their game. What did the guy say when you met back up at the spot and showed the vids?

explosive you're gonna have to let me know where those runs were at. Me and mrt need to get some cleaner low rolls/digs this summer and cant seem to find a good place to do it.

After the last run the guy just stayed hammered down, and I missed the damn exit. So I called my brother who was waiting at the spot to tell him how it all shook out. How he kept jumping on the 2nd honk, etc.

I finally get back to where everyone was, and the guy hadn't gotten out the car yet, and my brother was all fired up. WTF? Turns out, the guy thought he would be slick and claim victory on the 40mph rolls. He didn't know that I had already told my brother the deal, AND had the go pro mounted. He fumbled over his words, said he wasn't getting out because Brandon was mad at him, etc, lol. Basically, he had to double-tuck his tail, one for losing after talking so much trash, then again for trying to lie about it!

Our runs from 2nd gear were real close. 110mph was about dead nuts, 120 I was pulling, 140+ I'm close to a car out.

This leads me to my 2nd favorite run (hell, while I'm typing).

The srt guy links me up a race with his buddy in a "built fox", that's all I knew leading up to the run. I showed up in street trim, knowing we were digging, but oh well. I show up, and the guy has a h/big cam/i 347 with a big stall, gears, etc. He was on street rubber as well.

The dig run was horrible. Plain and simple, got walked HARD. I talk the guy into a roll. We go from a 10, and I pull a car on him......? WTF?? He says he wants another one, so we go from the same roll. Then he walks me.

He claims he was spinning the whole time the first roll run, and 'took his throttle stop off' for the 2nd run. BullSh!t. For one, you can tell when he stops spinning. 2, what kinda idiot does he take me for, "took the throttle stop off", lol. For a roll race?

So yes, I'm insinuating that he sprayed me. Which in turn I'm saying he was lying about his setup. A 347 with a 6xx lift cam, 1000cfm carb, 4600stall, etc, should be a MONSTER, and does not need juice to outrun a mid-high 12sec car.

Here's the vid. Maybe I'm crazy. I know I'm not butthurt for losing, especially to that car. But knowing I got setup to get puppykicked by the other butthurt fella makes it humorous either way!


Edit: Errr, gotta click the title of the vid for it to work, dunno why.....

Kerns II was my fave run. 50-135 against a 2011 6spd Vette with me taking him by 3/4 car.


We won't talk about Kerns I

The two favorite races in my cars this year would be. For the Mustang, beating a 2013 GT500 on motor. Clearly I beat the driver but still a cool win. And in the Camaro SS beating a cammed 06 GTO. Again his car was faster by a few 10ths but I cut a perfect light on him and followed it up with a 1.90 sixty on street tires to get that win. That slip messed with my wifes head. She kept asking why does it say winner on your side of the slip when he ran a 12.4 to your12.66???

I'd like another go at one once I have all my stuff taken care of and in order. I know I'd still lose but it'd be fun to see by how much.
