Default First run in the GT.

So take the GT out for a little spin in front of the house. I know, I know no front cap.......but I'm nuts.

I pull up beside a dark red fox hatchback. I look over and rev.....he does the same. He hits it and I let him pull about 2 or 3 cars. I rev it up about about 3K and dump the clutch. The stang kicks sidways and fights for traction. I back off, get traction, and punch it. I short shift into second at 4500rpm(damn TFI) and charge up beside him. I back off, look over at him and smile, then I roll back into it. Smoked his *** by like 15 car lenghts before I let out of it.

So just for reference YES my GT will smoke my 2.3

Man you had me going...I was thinking... "who does this kid think he is? He FINALLY gets a 5.0 and now he's telling stories about beating a car by 15 lengths?!?" Then you gave the punch line... Glad to see the GT can beat the 2.3. hehe

yes, i too was wondering whether the car had some major mods, or if you had been smoking something today.
