Books? Hmm.. Wow dude you really probably should brush up on your reading. Honestly. It took me maybe 3 minutes to type that. Sorry you can't read but 5 words a minute buddy. Perhaps if I dumb it down for you? I sure wish you lived in the area, I'd love to meet you face to face man. You don't wanna read this go the fuck on some where else? How simple is that buddy?

Honestly if I were as mad as you claim to be over this whole situation then I'd never enter the forum to view the posts...

I didn't bother to read the long arguments because it's pointless. We're all human, we're allowed to be mistaken, if the op can learn without having done harm, why not encourage him instead of turning this thread into a bitching match.

Anyways..

@Chris: I wouldn't race anyone on a highway (the only place i'd even considered speeding at night) with a ranger, it just doesn't have the stability of a car. If anything, and especially for bragging rights, i'd do it on a track where everyone could see. A major upside, there are no curves on a 1/4 mile track, takes away your greatest weakness.

Anyways, that's only my opinion on things, no offense to anyone in here.

If only we could hold all law enforcement employees to the same standards.

Hm.. something is not adding up here. I've seen a 4.0 with gearing and intake/exhaust/tuner, etc race a 2005+ V6 and canNOT keep up.

I have a street racing story from today:

So I was driving my 2010 GT today and was leaving work, getting on the freeway. In front of me was a SN95 Cobra. I have to admit, I was getting onto the freeway kind of quick (I just wanted to go home...). So once I get onto the fast lane, I stayed 70 mph. I guess the SN95 thought I was racing him, so he lets me get in front of him.. then tailgates me the whole time. Now... I HATE tailgaters, but I figure what the hell, the kid is probably just excited to see another mustang. So after about 2, 3 miles... the kid pulls up next to me and rolls down his window and throws up his arms like "Whaaat uppp!!" and starts revving his engine. I looked over, laughed, gave him a thumbs up then shook my head.. pretty much tell him "no, i'm not racing". He starts doing the 1,2,3 honk honk honk.. I just laughed and kept going 70. At that point, dude floors it and goes off. At around this time, another mustang (a SN95 GT) comes onto the freeway. Kid Cobra starts to egg this new guy on.. The freeway becomes two lanes and then both slow down to 45 ... on the f-ing 65 mph freeway. I'm too tired to give a f*** right now, but just shake my head and hope these kids just go. Long story short (... was it short? sorry!), street racing is so godd*** stupid. hahah. It's cheap thrills while endangering AND annoying others. To the two kids that were racing on the freeway... ..|.. =D

I got beat by a kompressor the other day...before I ripped the interior out of my truck...I was expecting it to be slow so I was only shifting at 4k-4500....I got off of it at 70mph and he had at least one length on me if not 2....First time ive been beat by a 4cyl....even if it was supercharged and modded (figure he didnt blow the money on the wheels, carbon fiber hood and slotted rotors without spending some on a lil go fast too)



And yeah, we were on the street....Nothing but farmland out here though
