Something weird.

When I'm driving my car and give it some gas I feel like its going to take off which it still does but not as fast. Kinda feels like a boat. The front end pulls up like usual but it just feels like it should be way faster or it used to be. Something wrong or am I just used to it.

Re: Something weird.

I've been having the same feeling with my stang. When i first got it it felt really quick. Then when I did my first round of mods it felt like a whole new beast. Now it just feels normal to me. You are probably just getting use to it. Once you start adding power its never enough. Thats what keeps us modding. I'm already chomping at the bit to get my next set of mods done.lol

Haha. I feel the same way. Although I put myself to rest about me just being used to it when I left black marks in second gear today. Lol

That's also true. Hot,humid air does make the car feel a bit sluggish.

Im gunna park my car and I bought a rebuild kit and a new crank for 900$. Plus I got that 6 speed trans with 20k miles on it for 300$. So I'm replacing almost everything. I'm gunna check for signs of loss of power while I'm ripping stuff apart
