Miss-Shifft-Almost die Yesterday at the Ilegal S.Races&V
 
Guys, I swear in the past that this unfortunatly things wouldn't ever happen to me, but yesterday happened, while I was in the ilegal street races, I race a higly tuned Hyundai Scoupe Turbo and when I wanted to past from 3th to 4th I enagged by mistake 2th , almost went to hell just when i was taking a fast corner ( I was arround 130 Km/h).
In the lastest weeks I noticed my shift knob wear, that should be the problem, for luck I didn't overreved the engine due the fast reaction of me ;) lol

anyway ---> here the story http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum...24#post2163224

and also took two little vids, that Scoupe ran very fast, vs this Toyota Starlet coupe with a swapped 1.6L DOHC 4AGE engine reving up to 10K RPM!!

Hate to break it to you bro, but I don't think this thread will be appreciated by the mods... just a heads up. ;)

Why?

I have a feeling somebody's gonna get flamed....


But Gary, since he doesn't live in the states I dunno if the nature of his street racing post will be of any consequence.

Maybe it was your lucky day. I've seen more than one very costly 4th gear/2nd gear mistakes.

vid links don't work

Glad you didn't toast the motor, that would have sucked in a big way.

we don't have track here, at least one, and sucks and it's pretty away from here, well not much, that's why we race at high hours in the night on the street!! :P

btw...those links works pretty good
