    got stupid for a minute

    well i wouldn't call this a kill because i ran side by side with the thing. well i was at blockbuster picking up a movie and while i was in the store a new model mustang gt pulled up that was pretty loud like my car is. don't think it had mufflers. it definitely had a cam. i was thinking to myself it sounded good and all and my brother in law who was with me thought it sounded really good(he's a mustang guy) and then we got in line at blockbuster near each other. i told him i though his car sounded good and he said thanks and all, well when i got in my car and started it up he kinda jumped. well i got at the red light and he pulled up behind me. well we got on 153 and he got beside me and started just going a bit and letting off. well my brother in law convinced me to race him somehow and i did. well the guy in the mustang started right when i gave it a rev and got 2 cars ahead of me right away. then i hit the gas and caught up to him after a second and pulled on him a bit then realized i was doing 95 and hit the brakes. he kept on the gas and had to have hit 140 mph before he let off. a minute or two later i saw him pulled over on hixson pike. me and my brother in law kinda laughed. but i was stupid there for a minute. i shouldn't have run him. it was just stupid but oh well. first time i raced on the street in 6 months. a lot better than i used to be.

    i don't even race on the street hardly at all anymore. i found out who the guy was. he has 380hp and runs 8.5 in the 1/8mile. evidently he doesn't want to do any suspension work because his car "doesn't need it". i bet if he had any suspension at all he would be much faster off the line and i bet with weight reduction he would be even quicker.

    good call on quitting before you hit triple digits- the other guy just learned an expensive lesson about racing on the street-

    We should go over to the mustang forum and watch him moan-

    cams. that's assumed to me with those things. i got a friend that has one that runs 8.2 on street tires at 90mph. he's pretty fast. got a lot of weight reduction and a nice suspension setup with a 460hp top end package. i make fun of him because i run almost the same time as him because i'm on dr's. and how did you run an 8.5 stock? must be pretty good with the 6speed.

    If I had 460Hp and I only ran 8's I would sell my car and buy a Bicycle. I Obviously am not a good race car driver for sure with those Kinds of times!!

    Jimmy you been to the track any lately?

    Good call on letting out early like that. There is no way to talk your way out of a 140-ish mph speeding ticket! You have come a long way, Mr. Bling. I remember your earlier threads.

    Speaking of which, how are things with your girl and kid? I kinda missed some of the details along the way. All I remember is how her mom was psycho, etc. Anyway, I hope all is well now.

    Yesterday on my way home from work I found myself next to a heavily modded Fox. Car had at least exhaust, cam and good tires. I'm sure there was a lot more going on than what I saw. This was a horrible place to run 'em but I gave him a thumbs up and told him it sounded mean. He returned the compliments on my car and as the light turned green I rolled through the intersection and gave it a little extra through 1st gear and let off and as I was slowing down he eased up close and then punched it a little and we waved.
