Lucky new hat
Well, my new Ford Racing hat seems to have magical powers. Usually around here I am lucky to get 1 or 2 decent races per week other than with my other Mustang friends.
Wearing this new hat for the first time, I raced 4 V8 cars with my '00 in one day.
First was an early 90s Thunderbird with a loud exhaust and big back tires - raced him a couple times from a stoplight and smoked him pretty hard; maybe 3 cars or more by 60.
Next up was a 99-00 GT vert. With the extra weight of the vert and my 315's broken in and hooking like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, I got a good 1 car jump on him off the line and slowly pulled further and further on him.
3rd race was some kind of 71-73 Stang with a load dual exhaust. Not really worth racing - I could hear it pinging when he jumped, but another victory nonetheless.
Last race was with an early 90s older body style TransAm (not sure if it was a 305 or 350). We came to a red light and it went green on us about 20 ft from the stop. I got a little overzealous with the throttle and got some serious rumpshake before it grabbed (barely stayed in my lane :-}, but once it grabbed I pulled on him about like the Thunderbird.
Sorry for the long post, but days like this are rare for me...
