I punked a V-8 Firebird
A little background here. I got my car last year in January. My friend has a blue V-8 Firebird. Since I've had this car, he's always been talking shit about his car and how he wants to see what my car has compared to his. The first week I had it he challenged me to a drag race, I was like WTF, you have over 2x the engine, HP, and torque I do, but I will if you go to an auto-x with me I'll drag race you (he's a wimp behind the wheel)... His response was priceless "I am not saying I am a better driver than yous, but I am saying that my car is better than yours". Well that car did not help him tonight.
We were driving to the same location about 20 mins away, both with 2 other ppl in the car (lots of weight for a 318i, not really for him). My favorite road in Jackson was on route, and he was on my ass as we got to it. So I put the hammer down and got into the twisties, not as fast as I can do it (the riders in my car had never ridden with me, didn't want to scare them... too bad), I look back and he's waaaaay back (just 4 corners each one slower/tighter than then previous, followed by a turn that merges with a 4 lane each direction road). The 4 lane road was nice and straight, lights every 1/2 mile or 3/4 of a mile. Figured he was going to stomp me from every light (its an auto, but still the power difference). He was scared at every light. He though that I killed him through the short twisties that I had a chance of beating him from a stand still going straight. Needless to say, it is hilarious. He clearly knows nothing at all about cars.
Just to clarify it is not a knock against the car, but against him. I don't want people coming saying "you coulnd't beat a V-8 firebird". I know that is the case with any other driver.
