Default A kill story and a small problem behind it

The other day i raced a early 90's iroc. we were messing around on the freeway a bit, then we got off on the same exit. we drove for a little bit untill we caught a light. the light turns green i let him get onit first then i stomp on it. i spun thru 1st and half of 2nd, when i got grip i pulled on him 4 car lenths with in less than a 1/8th mile lol.we get next to each other againand he says your car is quick. i said thanks. he had full exhaust gears and intake. anyways after that i hear this metal grinding noise coming from the front of the car. i think it might be the S pump or the alti. not sure. the s pump has bearings in them so im guessing its that[:@]. one more problem to add to the list.
