Default My rental

I have a 1998 Plymouth Voyager until my bonne gets out of the shop. This thing is slow as balls... but it lays some serious rubber

I put the ebrake on, smashed it, and it right away went up to 4 grand so I just let off the e-brake and held on it until I got to the tracks. Then I let off so I didn't jostle anything in the drivetrain by going across the tracks. It probably would have gone for another 20 feet if I let it.

I only had the e-brake on for maybe a second... geezus lol. Atleast I made sure both wheels were spinning, so it'* not like I'm abusing it :P And... I tried it later on flat road... it doesn't even require a hill. The tires are siped Michelins I believe.

I'm willing to say 3.3. It feels just like my mom'* 05 3.3 town and country, except this has some more ballz to it. Sounds just like it too.

Pop the hood. 3.0 is a OHC engine and has a flat top intake. Other than that, the 3.3 and 3.8 look alike aside from "3.3" and "3.8" on the intake. I am betting on it being a 3.8 if it'* fully loaded.

How did you end up with a rental car that is almost 10 years old?

Nope. I was right. 3.3L. I think my moms 97 voyager had a 3.8... I KNOW what they feel like lol. Give the bonne a run for it'* money off the line for sure. I actually asked mom to do a burnout back when I was in middle school, and she did one, and it was very similar to this one.... right through a 4 way intersection in the middle of nowhere.

EDIT: beat the bonne before ported lim and tires anyway lol.
