Smoked a CTR this morning, good feeling! :)

On my normal journey into work this morning and a Civic Type R pulled up next to me at the lights. I saw him edging forwards so I thought ''perfect opportunity!''

I wasn't sure how fast my car was as I have never really compared it with anything but safe to say the Civic couldn't keep up, and that's with lot's of wheelspin in 1st and 2nd (it was pretty wet).

Good little bit of fun though!

Any other people had many challenges on the road .. (cough* I mean, private circuit...

Mods:

15% KAVS Pulley
Custom Cat-back
Airtec Intercooler
GTT CAI

Mods coming soon:

550cc Injectors
Janspeed manifold
Remap.

Cheers All!

Maybe they stalled or selected 2nd by mistake?
