At the light in the left lane and I need to get make a right at the next light. So I'm at the light and I wasn't up to the line all the way so I edged forward that 1/2 car length just mindin my own business lol. Then the SUV next to me inches up also.. Light goes green. I first went into the gas just like 50% startin in 1st then I could hear the Wide open throttle of the SUV next to me so I repopped my clutch with full throttle this time to finish off my first gear with a bit of tire chirp. Not easy with wrangler duratrac 235's by the way. He pulled me a half a car length and then the end of 3rd gear and screaming that engine I caught back up. That or he let off which is what I'm thinkin bein a V6 Sorento. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> Fun run random guy in the Silver Sorento.. fun run! If I didn't have my big tires, I think I couldda had ya. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shiner.gif" alt="" />

Body Damage is Cool
I drove a few Sorento's and even if your Sportage was on the stock sized tires and the Sorento was tring it would clean your clock. I had a ZR2 Blazer and it would run circles around my Sporty and the Sorento would run circles around my Blazer so that guy was probably just toying with you.
