Well believe it or not there's a guy at my job with a 4th gen WITH LT1 and I've beat him from a dig and 2nd gear roll several times... in his defence it's an auto and probably has 125k miles on it... LOL

But from a dig I still beat him 5 x's...Lossed once due to a bad launch...

I've been telling him to come to sunshine with me since beating this black firebird so that we can go again because though it's a much more closer race I know I can get him and he keeps telling me a differen't excuse every time afterwards... I WILL GET THAT RACE ON TAPE FOR OTHERS TO BELIEVE... since obviously it would be more impressive and I've already done it so why not?

Wouldn't have went? you should have it would have been nice to see another focus out on the track...You would have really put some cars to shame!
I went a couple of weeks ago... There was another event last week on thursday but got rained out...

Ya my buddy that I work with.... his 4th gen LT1 auto is 100% stock...

He actually talked alot of crap too before we ran... "C'mon man when do you wanna get smoked in the focus?" LOL
