Default Craaaap, I just got blown out by a Taurus SHO

Ya, i got whooped, i got 92' SSE with Supercharger. We raced 3 times and got beat by car length each time... Thought I had no problem with SHO'*? Do Bonnys get beat by SHO'* all the time?? mind u this is a 2nd Generation 93' SHO.

I've never raced any SHO yet Not too many of them up here. BUT if you want "WHOOPED" try racing a BMW M5!

Time for some mods man, nothing is as much of an incentive as losing a close race. It'* like if I just had a few more ponies I would have won
DeathRat...the boss at my work has an M5...I'm not a huge fan of BMW'* but it is one amazing car! Honestly if he wanted to trade me strait up I would say yes after a short deliberation Needless to say I'm still waiting for the offer LOL.

Was it a stick or an automatic? Either way, don't feel bad, SHOs have some serious top-end power. They will give even a GTP a run for money off a roll.

Get an intake and a smaller supercharger pulley and I'm sure the results will be a little different

My friend has a white 95 SHO too.. never really asked her to race before ( she usually has her 2 year old child with her .. sorry.. have to respect the yellow sign that says "Baby on Board" Any racers who doesn't should be shot on the spot )... but as far as I know.. they are matched pretty good against Bonnies... for power thru V8 3.5L.. the numbers are also close.. but its a ford.

FORD = Found On Road Dead
FORD = Fix Or Repair Daily
FORD = [email protected]$king Old Repaired Dodge


Have a 89 Ford Areostar XLT... pain in the ***.. but one thing I notice about a lot of Fords... they all sound really distinct and powerful.. all then often not.. kinda reminds me of a small dog trying to make itself appear as a big dog.

Don't hold your breath while waiting though...I don't think he'll do it! BUT, yes that M5 IS an amazing little car! I don't usually like imports BUT, that would my next car to a Jaguar that is!
