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.

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.
