Interesting event tonight..
So i'm headed to the gym after work tonight..I'm driving along and need to change lanes cause the one i'm in ends..Their is a car in the lane next to me speeding up to not let me over, so i say fk it and slow down to let him pass..As he passes I see its a fox body 5.0 and then I hear the blowoff valvue as he goes by...now i'm intrigued..
I change lanes n speed up a lil to check out his ride, as I get about to his back panel he hits it wide open, not even looking forward to see 2 blocks away the light is yellow..needless to say he has to slam on brakes.
I pull up beside him and hes got this shit eating grin like he just smoked me or something, his wife always has an expression that she is the queen of england sitting on her throne..So I point at him then point at the light(Saying when the light turns green its me n u buddy).
Light turns green, surprising we both roll off to a slow start then seemingly perfect timing we both hit it, first gear I pull him all the way to barely seeing his headlights out my side window, I mess up second and the frigin car is like stalling or something(Think this is the wheel hop thing), finally it catchs a second later and I run second out, switch to third.. and hes bout 2 cars behind me in the rear view mirrow..
Stopped at another light right after he looks like he wants a rematch and I wanna see just how bad I can smoke this guy when second catchs right, so light turns same thing slow start and BAM, first puts him in same position, this time when I go into third hes bout 4-5 cars behind me..He pulls up at next light and gives me the "Rock On" hand gesture..
Bottom line, I love these cars man. I always read and heard ford underrated our cars (03 Cobra), anyone ever took a factory one to the dyno n see what they actually put out? I can't imagine how it feels once u do a few upgrades n start pushing that 500rwhp number.
