Your second sentence is where it's at!! Shoot there's people that are too scared to even run and they're missing out on such a rush regardless of what they may run!

4.10s and exhaust. First and second= no traction. Workin on fixing that, not all the cars fault. Need practice launching and some suspension work. 4.10s help alot tho. Friend went with his 02 gt with more bolt ons then me and even after butchering the launch I could catch him just because of them babies, best purchase other than the car ever made!

And i cant decide to use traction control or not.

Sleep is overrated anyways. Cant make money sleeping, unless your a firefighter, o wait i am, i win! And no i love my 4.10s. Crapy highway miles and all, if i had any doubt in my mind all i have to do is downshift when some as*hat is trying to pass me. Poor mans supercharger. Ive surprised some cars with them, since my car looks completely stock.
