Default 92' SSE vs Talon Tsi AWD

Ok comming home from work monday, and i notice this Talon pulls up to the light and gets in the other lane opposite from me, I looked at him he never looked at me, but when light was green we both went off line faster than normal and I guess thats when we looked at each other and we both PUNCHED IT!!! hehe, We went at about 20 mph and I was sorta walkin him barely then he shifted and the slow *** bonny 2nd gear comes to play and he jumps 1 1/2 car lengths we are at about 70 when I shift to 3rd and All of a sudden my car gets a huge boost and I walk away the victor!!! hehehe Well anyway I went home that night and looked up the stats and gear ratios, and supposivly the AWD Turbo Talon I raced has NOTHING after 75mph, just a slow crawl! hehehe dam that was sooo sweet heheh!

The first I think full interior import to get into the 9'* was an AWD Talon/Eclipse/Laser. Guy that owned it had a last name that started with a B.

No, it was AWD I probably have the article around here some where. I am not going to go look through all my crap to find it though.
