Default 94 SE vs Taurus SHO (Early 90'*)

Last friday I came to a stop light, and I saw an SHO, white, duel exhaust. He had been driving around the strip rather quickly the whole night that I saw him. I get to a red light, and ask him if he wants to run em. He says sure with a grin, and says he will win.

Light turns green, we both step it down. Tires are smoking on both of our cars. Speed limit is 30. I take him on the start, and continue to pull away up till about 60. I slow down and he pulls up to me. His friend laughin, we spun through third gear! I asked him if he wanted to try again at the next red. We go through a green, and come to another red. Again, we put it down as it turns green. I have him in the start, and continue to take him. I believe we were doing approx. 70 miles per hour. It was now in a 40 MPH speed limit. I had him taken by about a half car lengh and was pulling away when a truck pulls out in front of me. I have to slam on the breaks. The oher guy left town, and I didn't see him the rest of the night.

Now is it my fault that it was sort of wet out, and he sat there and spun? HAHA nope

Ya my brother has a SHO. Stock 0-60 is 6.7. Those SHO'* with a 5-speed are fast as hell. His car will spank ours, if he can take off right. SHO'* have no low end torque, so he would have to take off right to get a good launch. 220 HP, and 200 Lb. feet of torque is what SHO'* have.
