raced an svt focus

some svt driver tried to race me yesterday to the only open lane down a multilane freeway (it was pretty far down). i saw a blue focus coming up fast in the rear view and just for fun i sped up to block him, it was funny, i didnt even need to floor it or downshift. i kept his hood next to my window, which was open and i can hear him revving really high. i flew through the crack and noticed that i was going past 100 and slowed down. he did his flyby thing and when we get to the toll gate, i flew past him. he had to stop to pay tool and i have fastrak.

i hope it wasnt one of you guys. it was on the way to the san mateo bridge in norcal.

btw, i wasnt in my svt, i was in my eclipse gst.

I had the same thing . . . cept I was in the SVT and the guy creeping was in a 24v V6 contour (not the SVT)

I didn't even have to come out of sixth - once I put my foot down he stayed just behind my bumper one lane to the left, and once I hit 115 his governor hit and he fell way back

Whats the output on one of those GS-Ts?

N/M Did a search at Carpoint.com 210hp / 214 tq. Right where a JRSC SVT would be.
