Driving hope one night about midnight, after dropping the father in law off, I was alone at a light, not really paying attention to anything. Reving the engine to creep up to the line, then putting the clutch in to drift back. A corsica pulls up and stops. I didn't even see him, but when the light turned green, I let the clutch out kinda slow, but he stepped on it and squeeled the tires. So he takes off like a bat out of hell, or atleast compared to me. I put the clutch in and hit the gas to get the revs up and send my car after him. By the time we hit the next light (red) I was just about even. At the red, I look over at him and nod. As the light changes, both of us squeel the tires a bit, but I left him behind. He turned at the next lights, maybe too embarassed to be beaten again.

I know the corsica is a heavy car, but I though the 2.7(?)(It wasn't the 3.1) would have been faster.

My first race, but it was fun.

Not really the 2.6 was slow as dirt and the 3.1 isn't to bad.. my freind has one in a Grand Am GT that is much lighter (3200pdsVs2600pds)than a Corsica (and the one dropped into the Grand Ams were 160hp vs. the older 3.1 used in the Corsica's and everthing that had older with a 3.1 was 140hp but with same torque) he was right out in frount of me at the track with a 16.6 against my 17.0 and his has intake and exhast done (4spd Auto)...
