    In all of my cars. Maybe I need to go to driving school.

    Nobody beats me in the F-150. Try it and I'll just run into you. I don't even carry collision insurance on the car. I put a tree through the top corner of the cab/windshield once and never even bothered to get it fixed. Yes, a tree through the cab. I laughed my @$$ off about it.

    Thats great. I know i would be more scared of the F-150 than the Porsche. Actually maybe not. I vividly remember almost driving off the road because i was too busy staring at the Porsche

    Until they go big turbo I don't worry about them. The fastest one in my parts I know of traps 107 and runs high 13's. It's a quick car, but he's severely handicapped by FWD and no slicks. If he had slicks he would shilack a lot of cars.

    It's a good thing I'm on the inside or I'd do the same. It's one thing that my STi never did for me. My old 911, even after 3.5 years of owning it, I'd still turn around and look at it when I'd go into a store. My current one, same thing. They're just beautiful cars. Absolutely beautiful. My G-wagen is what I like to call beautifully ugly. My Ford is just ugly. Big, ugly, giant beast. Anybody wanna race me for pinks? I'll drive the Ford. Maybe I'll wait for my motor swap though.....

    I'd believe it, and even the 8 in the twisties sounds credible... Have you seen the cobalt SS/TC's time at the ring?

    Naw we were on a deserted county road. I ran a 14.7 @ 93mph my last trip to the track. That was when i first got the car and had the bullwinkle tune flashed.
    I didn't know how to drive it or launch it yet so the times are kinda slow. I was shifting at 7100rpm and my 60' was only 2.0. From what i've read around here i'm supposed to be shifting more around 6k lol so i bet i could have pulled a 14.3 or so out of it with better driving and a tad better launch. not to mention that bullwinkle tune was crap and my factory ebcs was limiting me to 10psi max.

    Same story with ol boy's cobalt, shifting at 7100rpm, crap tune, 10psi. I have a custom tune from a local tuner, running 13psi for now. Getting it re-tuned for 17psi soon though. Then sometime this next coming spring or summer i want to go Ethanol with a VF52.
