yeah i was about to say there is no way in hell you can beat them off the line, maybe you zipped by 'em and didn't give them a chance to catch up, but seriously. it is about driving, but i'm afraid i can't believe you about that part.

My car with an Iceman, Diablo Sport, FR Plugwires and Autolite DBL Plats, and a 65mmTB made a whoping 101hp with a good A/F ration. I have some more going on the car now but it isn't about power. I like the car and it is fun to drive. As for beating an SVT, this is something that usually sets an SVT ownere on fire, your car's are not that quick. Hate to break it to you. I have beaten a few SVT off of the line and clear up to around 40-50MPH at this time the SVT takes off. Some of you SVT owners need to get off your high horse.

One thing he did say was that the SVT had to slow down or hit someone. In traffic it is about the driver and almost nothing about the car.

That's right LastRites...you know that was not aimed at you. Just keep watching and you will see me get beat up here soon by the SVT masses.

HEY Black ZX3. What do u have under your hood. Im dying to know. You know what? Why don't u post back when you have actually raced a couple of people in the highway with traffic. Here's something you should keep in mind. 1)When racing on the highway with traffic you're always between lanes avoiding traffic. It's not easy. 2) I didn't beat the car by a spank we were basicly between lanes all the time. 3) I barely won because I saw the opening and took it. Finally MY CAR HAS A COUPLE OF MODS I KEEP A LID ON. And for the record Ive driven a couple of SVTF's stock and modded SO I KNOW JUST HOW GOOD THEY ARE AND HOW FAST THEY CAN BE WITH SOME MODS. My car is not stock. Just because it's an ATX doesn't make slow.
