    When ever an SVT beats me I just think of him in snow and how much he spends on gas, then I smile.

    I knew a guy that drove his 590 rwhp Cobra year round in Massachusets through snow storms and everything. I thought he was stupid for it but he never had a problem. I guess he used some sick snow tires but the car was fine. Another sad thing to mention is my 466 rwhp Cobra got better gas mileage than my stock Evo. I think something is wrong with the Evo.

    Man, that GN story makes me wish I had my 80 Sunbird up here. I've already got the 3.8 in, I just need to set up the turbo stuff. I kind of miss having an over powered rear driver.

    So then i come home, its a beautifull day. Decided to take my 87 GN for a spin, T76/T4 1.15AR P trim turbine, 96lb injectors, cam, built TH350 trans, 5k rpm stall with line lock and 2 step, stock block motor never opened, 10.5" DOT drag slicks etc etc etc. Best pass on 16psi boost was 10.81@126.79mph...... Not looking for any races as im just taking a cruise, these 2 punk kids in a C5 keep tailing me, i doubt they were over 18 years old. Finally we come to a light and they keep reving on me, so i get annoyed and hit the 2 step POP POP POP POOOOOOOP, scare the crap out of them while building boost, light turns green im stalled 5k rpm with 10psi of boost, i let them get the launch with them thinking they won but then i let all hell break loose on them and put atleast 15 cars on them by 100. Point is i hate cocky kids in their daddys vettes, dont play with a GN

    Sorry i dont street race, havent done it in years or ever plan on it. But today the sh*t hit the fan.
