On long Island if your into racing you travel at most and hour to the race tracks and strips in riverhead. The place has racers ranging from funny cars to ricers and people from highschool to 60 y.o. the price $20 for all day

If your not good enough as a driver to race at the tracks you go to a place known as deer park avenue a 25 mile+ near strait away that leads to a highway in one direction and another road good for racing in the other direction. There is traffic on the street till about 11:30PM. So when you race you get anywhere between 1/8 to 1/4 mile of strait followed by weaving in and out of traffic. So to win in a race you need a good take off followed by very good handling.

When I mean bad racing I mean really bad racing. So bad I beat 2 mustangs numerous ricers and a BMW 325 in my 93 318is.


Now for my current story

I was on the way to my fianee's house traveling deer park I hit traffic and a 01 M3 convertable pulls up which apears to be just purchased from a dealer that day. I look and the guy revs his engine when sudenly a mustangs cuts me off and is too far foward at a red light so the mustang goes to show off and smoke appears and pulls over so at the next light no more than 200 feet away we are at the front. Reving engines the light turns green and we take off I drive really agressivly and I have fast reaction speed so I got the head start. We are neck and neck im in 4th he goes to shift and I hear the gear grind he slows down then picks up speed I shift into 5th and I hit 70 hes catching up and then we hit traffic so we have to weave in and out. I manage to get out of the traffic before him gun it at 100mph and hit the last light before the highway. He follows up and goes into the turning lane. He then yells over to me that he wishes he could drive like me. He gives a nod and turns.

You were neck and neck with a e46 m3? up until 4th? BULLSHIT!!! Have you ever ridden in and or actually driven an M? A 318 moves like a damn slug compared to the M's. Besides you should be hitting the twisties not the straight aways!

Let me repeat really really bad racing happens over there were talking first manual car.


I forgot to point this out, over by where I live people are rich I mean really rich. Its not uncommon for 17,18 year olds to have new BMW's, porsches, jaguars, ferraris, or ricers with 10k+ worth of work. If they loose there car from racing they buy a new one. The guy I raced in the M3 was about 18. He clearly just learned how to shift because he was looking down as he shifted and did shift too early. We also had to get through traffic.

I'm not saying my car can beat an M3 with a decent driver behind the wheel; but under the circumstances I did win.

I've seen e46 lose ridiculously, usually because of shifting. I still don't believe you, but I will admit I have seen some stupid phuks out there that did done horrible jobs trying to race their car. Just drive an SMG if you NEED TO LOOK DOWN TO SHIFT.
Granted, I want an smg, but only the 7-gear one because it's unnecessary. Or the SMG-ii, pulled off of F1's...
Anyway...
The reason I don't believe you (although it might be possible) is that a stock e46 m3 is nearly twice as fast to 60 as an e36 stock 318. I mean it. Literally. It takes the 318 twice as long.
Which mean, if the guy didn't bother shifting and stayed in first, he would have beaten you. Then blew up.


Crap, I think I may be a yuppie...

Seeing as how the e46 looked as if it had been purchased that day, I'm going to say he

A) wasnt actually racing you, rather enjoying a pleasent drive alongside
B) was obviously still in the break-in mileage time period, therefore probably staying at about 3,000 rpms.
C) and then you wake up and realize you dont remmerb falling asleep on yellow sheets
