Post your racing stories, what has your Taco owned?

I was under the impression that the previous generation Golf GTI was fast until some kid at a light revved at me and my brother. When the light went green I shot off way faster (I have good reaction time) and traveled 3/4s of a mile before he caught up, and I had slowed down to turn into my neighborhood by then. Funny thing was that off the line I could hear his little turbo doing its best to spool up, he was obviously pushing the poor thing as far as he could. Poor bastard, must not know about turbo lag. Owned . .

Feel free to post some videos
