    Good vids Luos. I'm gonna have to check some more out. The "LSX in action" is great also. I rolled on the floor when the T/A sneezed on that ricer. Gotta love nitrous out the nostrils.

    When I am pulling out from a sidestreet onto a busy street, I love punching it in first, turning sharp and just whipping the back end as far out as I can. The looks on people's faces is priceless. And it only gets better when it rains! Carry a spinout from stoplights through third!

    Fat V8 torque curve + MT (no sloppy TC) + NO "throttle-by-wire" + "all motor" (no boost) = INSTANT throttle response. Gotta love it. People freak when I take off easy in 1st (sparing the clutch) and rolling out even w/ their nose, then punch it w/ ASR off and roast the tires all the way through first gear fishtailing all the way. Not too hard to bang 2nd before the tires catch traction at the top of 1st and roast them all the way through 2nd fishtailing as well.

    Coming to a red light in my 240 can be intimidating when looking back and all you see is


    Came up on a Turbo Honda Civic, we were turning left onto a 4 lane hwy. He Revved at me so I inched closer to his bumper, Light turns green he punches it and burns the front tires, Im setting back giggling he gets out of it so he can turn and I punch it banging gears, Hit second and set the drivers side headlight right against his passenger door as im staring at him through my windshield just playing with the kid completely sideways, it is a 240 and thats how we roll!!!!, by this time im in 3rd so I bring the rear end back and scoot within 1ft of his door look over give him the peace sign and was gone!!!!! That moment in my book = Priceless........

    Im still building my T/A Hope it is as fun, Not sure how sideways you can get a T/A without it coming around on ya but in my 240 I have held a ton of 80+ Degree Drifts at over 45MPH. The Ditchlines are the limits HAHA!!!!

    Ha ha! They had never seen RWD before!!!!

    '99 Trans Am

    in the mornings on the way to work theres a hill i go up. its been pretty chilly here and with the tires cold ive been noticing the wheels spinning if i get on it going up this hill. on friday i was feeling like i needed to let her rip so i gunned it, in second, up this hill tires spinning most of the way up, still going straight (dont know how) and then i feel the back end start to move sideways and i noticed a school bus coming over the hill. figured that was a good time to ease up and shift.
    damn, i love my car
