Talking everyday

pretty much everyday on my way home from work i get on the freeway and i always run in to this guy in a gt-s eclipse and boom its race time we zip though traffic and have a blast i usually beat him though traffic but we have fun.

The other day a colbat wanted to get in on the race and we let him get ahead then we just took off and smoked him it was great fun, for a stock 08 my focus is quite fast i played with a v6 cougar lastnight on the highway he couldn't get past me he'd catch up and id floor it and pull way from him big time Im very please with my focus ah i love it
I'm buying it lowing springs (1.2" drop) and them 15 spoke svt euro rims

I'm glad you are happy with the power from your focus, but racing in traffic is unacceptable and just plain stupid.
Take it to the track, and stop endangering others on the streets.

that is saying i stole an item in front fo a cop and he didnt do anything so its okay just because they dont pull you over does not make it any safer.

well im not some dipshit who speeds where people and kids are around and "racing" tho traffic is not that bad if you no the limits and don't be a dipshit

you gotta no when its right to give it some gas and be safe at the same time i don't go 140 where kids are playing or theres heavy traffic that just dumb just on a 3 lane freeway with few cars on it also speeding and driving pretty much the same way its ok as long as your not stupid and push it to far and no when to back off. here in canada i think we think differently
we like to have fun
