who loves dropping the hammer in 3rd gear???

ok i just had to get a vote of all the people who love to drive there focus. especially when your in 3rd gear around 3500 rpms and just floor it. I drive a lot on the highway and i have to say i love getting on the on-ramps. its the most fun part of my day, i hit the turn in 3rd doing like 40 and just let it loose till i get in the HOV lane. I just feel that my car pulls so nice during this rpm range and enjoy doing this everyday.

am i the only one like this or do the rest of you love doing this too?

I do...but that's probably because my clutch slips.

I like 2nd gear better getting on the interstate, a nice pull in 2nd satisfies me.
