First race was with a rottweiler sporting a pink bandana. I lost that race by choice to give the owner time to collect her mutt. As soon as I cut the motor, I swear that dog smiled. Second race was a snot nosed teen on a BMX. He thought he was badass with his rolling downhill start. He was winded worse than an Xgames pro after a 100 ft wipeout. Just wait till it breaks in and I add a mod or two.
