Ever since I got the tC on July 2, I've always wanted to race cars that I previously was thinking about before my tC. First, I made a "Hit List" of the cars I really want to race because the tC and a car I wanted are so closely comparable. First I had a few "Guinea Pig" races b4 I really made some mistakes with shifting. So I raced a 1997 Mustang v6, 2004 Honda Civic EX, and a 1999 Cavalier. There all stock but I wanted to work on shifting. And as we all know it... I killed them all. But anyway, after that my bro said I should race a tiburon. So we cruise for a while and find a tiburon to race. We raced the best 2 out of 3. The first race I beat him by like 10 car lengths because he missed 2nd. I believe him because the second race was just a little bit closer. The second race was good for him because he didn't complain and he thought I was running something. Well, it went like this... Off the line I beat him by half a car length then shifted to 2nd and I was gone.... 3rd came and i was still drifting away... then 4th .... I think I won by 4 car lengths. I'm glad I won b/c i've been waiting for a race like that for a long time. B4 we raced he said he had beat a tC b4... and i thought to myself... "tC's are rare.... where did u find one to race?" but i didn't ask and so b4 i raced him i was nervous.. but in the end, releived. I also raced a 2004 Mitsu Lancer ralliart with exhaust. Our record is me 5 wins and him 1 win. I don't know what happened with my loss but I think I held it in 1st for to long. My next cars on my hit list are a 2004 Civic Si and a 2001 Honda Prelude.
