Haha I've already had one pull a U-turn as soon as I passed him at about 4k and 45mph in 2nd. He didn't pull me over, but he definitely made sure I knew he was watching. That dang off road x-pipe with Roush mufflers....

I usually shift around 3k. I usually try to shift lower when I leave for work early in the mornings though, I'm nice like that.

After setting off my neighbor's car alarm with a cold start, of course.

Ha. Nice. No alarms going off around my house. I'm sure it's a nice alarm clock for my neighbor across the street though.

E85 and big injectors = not the best gas mileage. I love it though.
