Default My fault, not my car

I wanted to race for the 1st time and I ****ed up. I forgot to take it outta 1st (I only manually shift for racing).

I was in the far right lane, idiot in van was in middle, and a ricer (honda civic w/ a fart muffler)in left lane. OK we're off... I can not see over thevan, I wavegood bye to the van (in 1st), I am past the ricer, and he pulls ahead, I'm thinking why the fu*k am I not taking this thing, and why the fu*k am I not moving. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! I finally look down and totally forgot to take it outta 1st. DUH[sm=headbang.gif] Anyway the guy turned at thenext light. And I wanted to shoot the vans tires out [sm=shootshoot.gif]

Oh well lesson learned!! At leastI beat the van in 1st gear...lol. Also I am glad that, because of some thing they put in my car (someone tell me what that is?), I didn't tach it out over the red line, it actually stayed @ the same speed, and wouldn't go faster. It was totally my fault and not my cars fault. But I'm still pissed off.

Thank for reading my vent.

Rev limiter -comes with it from the factory. It's so that people like you dont blow up the motor when racing minivans..

I wasn't racing the minivan..he decided (like an *******) to join in, I was racing the civic. I knew I should've stayed out. But I hate those f***ing ricers.

I didn't want to race the civic in the next lane, because if he wipes out it's notgoing to be on my car...lol. And thanks for clarifying the revlimiter for me. LOL @ cahtr6 reply...yes it would've been.
