Was on my way to work on I-95 moving through the traffic when I came up on 2 GLI Jettas (turbo charged stock)... normally I don't race with others on the road but we got to an opening and all 3 of us hit it at around 60 (perfect start for me with my gearing) I jumped out ahead and kept them behind me the whole way to 120 where I slowed down for my exit that was approaching. 1 was brand new with paper plates and all and the other looked to be lightly modded (exhaust, maybe a chip)... wasn't to exciting of a race but definitly a nice refresher since I haven't got a good one in a while. :)

Just goes to show you that chicks belong in jettas, not guys who think they're fast because it's got a turbo the size of a mini-disc :lol:

Reminds me of an exciting race I had the other day in my Super Sport Z71.

I got the jump on a mini van the other day..... We were neck and neck until 15 mph and then I took it all the way up to 45 mph and started pulling on her! I was gone... That will teach her for having so many kids in the van!

Oh, the life of a street racer. My work is never done. :kiki:

How much work is done to your truck? I've run a few Xtremes here in Phoenix in MY Jetta and had nothing but truck in my mirror.

:roll: Of course it had to be xtremes!

:kiki2:


Be they Extremes or Xtremes the point still stands.


In no way am I implying that a jetta, or my jetta is for that matter "fast" It just happens to be fast-ER then a stock colorado EXtreme or was on more then one occasion. Honestly I don't get the whole sport truck thing...but hey that's not the discussion now is it :D

That sir is the funniest thing I read all night, I got my ass handed to me on the freeway on ramp the other day by a brand new super duty turbo diesel crew cab dually pulling a trailer with horses in it which was twice the length of my truck. But strangely I didnt feel too bad, I figured he probably had around $50k more invested in his truck than I do in mine.

I'm sure he looked over at you trying to keep up and thought to himself "Cute truck." :kiki2:

Its always sad to see some big yuppie redneck 2500 blow your doors off in a street race...So then i just hit some curvy roads and think about the 2500 that would be in a ditch trying to do this...or a base jetta for that matter(handle like ass)
