If you can't win, change the rules. Challenge him to a fuel mileage contest. Put the same amount of gas in each car and see who can drive furthest. You'll kick his butt.
Just some guy on the Internet. Heed with care.

Well I think he blew his clutch lol. We didn't even race. I was just cruisin' with him and he dropped the clutch at this stop sign and it just redlined. It smelt like burnt popcorn :-X. I ended up racing a Jeep Cherokee on the way home though, no contest :-P.

Did you happen to pass a drag strip on your way home?

Don't race on the streets. It is illegal and highly dangerous.

I try to beat people off the line while being as subtle as possible (read: no tire squeal or racing the engine). I've killed a couple Corvettes this way! I stay under the limit, though.

That's the thing. I did it subtly, so they had no idea. It's always fun being the first one off the line.

I may have phrased that wrong. I beat him to the speed limit (50 mph) after the light turned green :-P.

Where's the fun in beating a Jeep in a drag race?

I get a kick out of when some ricer flies off the line after the light turns green, and I'm a lane over, and then he is waiting at the stoplight for a long time, and when I get there, I see the light turn green and just keep going, and then he gets passed and gets blocked in, and then I beat him to the next light. hehe stupid ricers
