I wasn't drag racing, really!, it was just a open country 4 lane road! The guy was pushing, but I was always ahead on with the next shift, me with a big grin on my face, it is just a 38/38 with a 3.90 lsd

It was a mid 90's, I let go when I hit xx mph, and his rear bumper said GT.

I don't usually do this, except there is a section of this divided highway where there is no cross traffic and before we got to the light I saw the entire Hollister PD at the donut shop.

There are times where you hit your shift points just right and I think this was just one of them...insane I know, I need an Infineon bad!

wonder if his engine was in correct shape... i have tried to play with muscle cars and they usually do a dust job on me in the straights. You must have made him go right to his mechanic with orders to get the thing running to beat a 30 year old plus little German car that put a beatin' on him! way to Go Michael! Sears Point is going to be a ball!!!!

A big engine with a little brain is no match for a balanced combination.

Off the line is quicker than my tii, lots of low end torque, so if you shift right, not trying to burn rubber you go. Having the 3.90 helps. The tii with 3.64 "dies" on second gear, and off the line gets beaten by 5.0's, sure it is faster accelerating between 70 and 90 than 38/38.

I've read somewhere that you only go 10 or 20 feet the first second, so in a short race, take off is extremely important.

Infineon here we come!
