I drove a early 90's model Formula 350 before and it was pretty quick but I absolutely smoked this guy I raced the other night. He only hung with me in first gear and when I hit second he was toast. I know he was tryimng because his car was really loud. I think something was wrong with it or he didn't take care of it because like I said, I drove one of these before, automatic, and it was pretty quick. I didn't even launch hard off the line, if I did he probably wouldn't of enven hung in first gear. My girlfriend was laughing the whole time. She thought it was funny that this little blue station wagon beat a big loud V8 car. I've seen newer model formulas and they are much faster.
