My first drag in the spider!
having not owned my spider for long i had to share my first drag experience!
Well up until yesterday i had driven my spider like a grandma as in i never revved it over 3 and a half and took off nice and slow just enjoying my new car. The only thing i had done was test out its handling through various twists and turns around my area.
I had just finished exams and was coming home from uni. I was on a three lane road which merged into two lanes at the traffic lights and a truck was in the second left lane leaving me the slip lane. What i didn't see was the p plater in his i think about a 97/98 Magna sedan in front of the truck. Well i thought now is the time to see what all this talk about Alfa begin good performance cars.
The lights changed to green my foot hit the accelerator and i dropped the clutch at about 3 grand the ASR kicked in with the wheels chipping at the pavement until the power really kicked in the car propelled to about 5 and a half grand i wimped out and changed slamming the gas pedal to the floor once into second. I well and truly have thrashed the Magna and anything else in the other lanes and by this stage i hit 5 grand again and change into 3rd i decide to keep going i am doing about 145km/h in a 80 zone and then the bloody lights change i am forced to slow to a halt.
Love my spider lol so smooth! Cant wait to really hit the rev limiter next time!
