I once raced a viper gts with my 90 ford escort lx. Needless to say I got wasted. We were turning onto the freeway and I wanted to pass himm so I could check it out but he didnt let me. lol. I had several victories in that car and many losses. Beleive it or not I had a friend in my car and we had our bikes on the bike rack on the roof. Well somehow I pissed off 2 guys in a 90's mustang gt convertable and they proceded to chase us around Phoenix. I dont know if it was my driving or what but we got away. They could catch up to us but it took them a while to do so. One they got on my ass again I would ditch them again. True story

Nice one. If that had been my buddy Jeff's Escort Pony it would've been a little closer competition... he has surprised more than a few Corvettes. :lol:

but over 90 mph, my car feels like a woman's personal pleasure toy.


think maybe new bigger wheels may help... like 17x8 wheels. i read something someplace about wheel sizes and final drive ratios

.... no offense man, but it took you 3.73's to be able to drift around corners?? I can do that now with the right throttle modulation and 3.36 open rear.... hmm, maybe thats why I keep chewing tires off in 10k.... lookey dat..learn sumtin every day :P hehehehe. On a serious note though, thanks for the info on the diff..I'd like to keep my highway mileage nice and solid, I get around 25mpg@80mph as is right now w t5 and auto diff. So I need to find something around the auto 3.36 or so ratio w/ lsd.

DONT EAT THE DISCOLORED PAPER!! :lol: 8)
where'd I put that damned hammer?? :-D
