You have to flex your muscles sometimes.

The other day, I had a newer Mustang 5.0 with wheels, exhaust, and other odds and ends run up behind me pretty quick. When I turned a corner, he was still on my tail, so I thought I'd show him a little bit of what mine has.

As I got to second, I let it get to about 3,000 RPM, and then I stomped it. Once it hit full boost, I was fishtailing and then short shifted to 3rd. Once the boost came on again, I had a quick little whip of the rear and straight as an arrow it went.

The Mustang quickly withdrew and never tried to catch up with me.

I hate those cars....I can't help myself when they are next to me (or behind). They are like cockroaches.....everyone has them and everyone has a head when they do have one........
