Thumbs down won 1 lost 1 last night...

I was coming home from kennedy station along eglington when some pontiac vibe starts to trail right beside me matching my speed, but really aggressively. After 3 honks, we floor it, me not thinking much of the other car, so I didn't even bother downshifting (I was going at 70km/h in 3rd gear at 3500rpms, right at the sweet spot for boost in my car right now). I heard the engine of the pontiac vibe screaming beside me, it was VERY obvious that this guy's engine was NOT stock, even though the car looked it. We get the cars up to about 150km/h I'd say before I look in my mirrors, and see he's about 3 or 4 car lengths behind me, but holding up steady. I let off the gas, and let him catch up. We eventually meet again at a stop light at markham and eglington, and he starts to revv like crazy; I do the same. We both launch on green, tires squeeling, and then *poof* my car shift into second but it doesn't catch! Stupid f*ckin' clutch! I guess that's what I get for trying to use a stock 10 year old clutch with 270hp . The other guy kept going like a bat out of hell, and we once again meet up at the next stop light 2 blocks away. I pull over to him and laugh a bit about my clutch messing up (you could smell it burning too lol!). He smiles and said he thought something like that happened but was disappointed because he wanted to see how he'd fair against my car. We talked a moment about my supercharger before the light turned green, and then we both went our seperate ways. I didn't get enough time to ask him what he had under the hood, but I suspect it was either a turbo, stroked engine, or completely swapped engine. (i've never heard a pointiac sound like this thing did! It sounded more like some of the turbo integra type-r's I've ran against).
either way, I lost 1, fair and square. (man this sucks! )

Holy smokes! Hope you you run into him again so you can smoke him. I don't like seeing Vibes beating any Bimmer.

This wasn't any ordinary vibe though. It'd definately smoke any stock 325/8 or m3
