That's why I love having a V8 people don't try to race me.

:-P

Speaking from experience, after over 7K in fines a court costs, and almost losing my license, street racing just isn't worth it.

Felony Street Racing is a pretty hefty charge, especially down here in Florida.

I don't think I'd want to drive your Ranger that fast, I've had mine in excess of 120 when I had nice gears and that was scary as ****.

Now, on my buddies Gixxer 1K, 160 didn't seem that fast at all.

I will give it to Clyhead, not for streetracing, but the ranger isn't bad 0-60, mine does quite well hehe
like he said, it takes down people in v6 mustangs.. but then again.. who cares about a v6 mustang
as for racing higher speeds, unless your on a track, death and LE fines just aren't worth it.

Just to think the money I dropped on all the fees court costs and lawer costs I could have ran legit at the track for years.

I could have finished my turbo Horizon too, and been running 11's no sweat.

Not to mention what I could do with the Ranger.

I'm not flaming him, as I love to show someone up every now and then, and I used to be all into going out on the back roads on Saturday nights with the "Car Club" and racing until 3 or 4 A.M.

But having been busted for street racing paying out the *** and luckily getting away with 19 over has really helped sway me from racing on public roads.

unless its just a "track" truck i wouldnt want to go more than 85 in a ranger chasiss. ever try to stop quickly when youre doing 90? it doesnt, you heat the brakes to the point of brake fade. the ranger chassis was never ment to go that fast. sure i tried it---once. the handling is awful, the braking- nonexistant. the possible consequenses-forever.

The time I had my truck over 100, it wouldn't stop those 33" for ****.

You are correct. Driving 75 down I-95 is bad enough.

So you race them for you to be "cool", that makes perfect sense. There is no need or want for morons like you on here.

Now, when this kid does grow out of his ricer stage, which around here kids never do, and starts doing tasteful things to his Ranger and is not racing his mom in her hoveround, we know where he won't come for advice.

haha
