Oh please don't. I want to see how it goes over tomorrow morning when more people get online.

(although FF doesn't condone street racing of any kind of course so this thread should be locked and allowed to wither and die in infamy)

My dad has a chevelle pushing ever bit of 550 horse but I'm sure you could take it bro. the moral of the story is if they wanted to beat you they would of. Most likely didn't want to be driving a mad man. Take it to a drag strip and get back to me.
If your working under the hood of a car and drop something, it will always roll to the middle of the car and just out of reach.

i know my SVT can't beat ~450hp.... but I still love it, that's the moral of this story for me :)

edit: I will give it that SVT for example can accelerate nicely, and when someone is trying to cut you off it helps, and I do sometimes get people who want to race or are just being rude idiots, and I don't race but I do keep my spot on the road :P so in one of those moments when adrenaline is rushing, those few seconds of escape in traffic may feel like long race and make you think you beat that guy, but it's down to featherweight of focus and delayed human response time of the other driver.

Our Lady of blessed acceleration
