    Cool Ford Lightning goes down..FROM A ROLL!

    Was at a redlight, saw it come up from behind and pull up next to me, he didnt rev on me or anything, but when I pulled out (not hard) he hit it and I hit it, by the time I hit it my front bumper was at his door, by the end of 1rst I pulled even, by the end of second, his front bumper was at my rear bumper we both let off at the same time, (about 60, was a 45mph road)
    He didnt try again at the next light...

    Be careful, some L's out there in the wild can be beasts. If it was dry and he had some Nitto 555DR's in the rear, traction bars, and some decent mods it could have been a raw horsepower contest. 99-00 was 360 HP 425 TQ, and 2001 < is 380 HP, 450 TQ in the current body style.

    yeah mu buddy has one with exh, pulley and some other light mods. runs 13.2
    My car is capable of about a 12.5, but thats with the AWD Launch.
    from a roll a modded one should be pretty tough

    In my Stage 4 WRX, I had no trouble beating Lightnings from a roll. I've also walked one pretty good in my STi from 40mph-90mph.
    But as mentioned just look out the the modded ones. I know a couple guys with Lightnings that are running in the 7s in the 1/8 mile.
