when we were crossing over I-70(from national trails) todd got on it at around 35-40 and that damn thing jumped to the right. now that was t-steer... also left a nice two-wheel patch

i love brian'* ultra. looks brand new. definitely the quietest car that was at INTENSE

damn, i missed the max. i would've liked a ride(or even a run :P ) in it. sweet car, my favorite max body style. good luck breaking 13'* (with YOU behind the wheel) whenever you do hit the track.

Heh, thats funny. I was thinking a similar thing about my car the other day. These little DOHC 4 bangers make their power way up top, and when it comes, it gives everything its got (which isn't much in my case).

Look who'* talking I have to point out that Matt has gotten his car recently and as alway, there'* a learning time with the car. For example it took me about a month to learn the bonne, I never knew that it had auto headlights, that you could shut them off and the headlight that stays on after you shut the car off, oh and slowing down using the set cruise button. So he'* probably still learning what'* the best way to launch the car and shifting. And I WILL say this, IowaMax is able of whooping most Bonnevilles except for some heavily modded B'villes. Even I was impressed which I mentioned in my original post.

So be nice Bill.

then again, it chirps the tires, so it must be fast... oh wait, i could bark the 1-2 and 2-3 in a 98hp ranger so that means that thing was fast too, right?
