Default Trip to the Track

I took my car to the 1/8 mile track for the first time since I got it yesterday. I started off kinda bad I kept spinning tires from the launch but things got better once I got used to the launching. I raced a Dodge Intrepid and beat it by more than a second. I raced it again and won again, and then somebody wanted to challenge me: a 2nd generation turbo eclipse! I started talking to him and he was telling me he just put the turbo in along with the inter cooler and that he hasn't had it to the track since he put the turbo in. So we lined up and I thought I could get him if I got a better reaction time so I was really focused and I got him off the launch and he started catching up once the turbo kicked in but it was too late I won! I beat him by .248! I was so excited because I had barely spent any money on this car and he had dropped 1k in his car and I beat him! I also raced a ricer honda civic and totally killed it of course. So it was a great trip

My best time was 10.51. And that's on 87 octane fuel with no weight taken out of the car!
