Whats up?

So I was headed home going down 82nd Ave after enrolling myself into some college courses. And here in Oregon, our road designs and traffic lights suck. I had been sitting at this red light for literally a minute and this baby blue porsche boxster rolls up to me on my right. The color caught my eye and I looked over at him, and he was looking at me and smiling. I looked back at the light and it had just turned green, I heard his engine and a chirp from his tires and he takes off. I instantly got on the throttle and right before shifting to second gear, I had caught him and could no longer see him in the corner of my eye. I slam second gear and a second later heard a beep. Knowing I was at 60mph (O/D set) I let off and hit the breaks and he flies by me. I know those boxsters only have around 300hp. But its nice always blowing the doors off something that costs 2x amount of your ride. Anyways. Just thought I would tell my story.

He never had a chance. The base Boxster is 245hp, the S is 295hp. Curb weight around 2,900 lbs. Maybe he could have taken you on some zig-zag type deal, but nothing in a straight line, drivers being equal.
nice kill:cheers (Farfignuken or something like that)

awesome kill

I cant wait to get my first. I found out recently that an older guy that lives in a terrace across a road from the terrace I live in just purchased a white mustang with blue racing stripes. My mail man who also has a GTO who is one of three owners of a GTO in my "county" that I live in, including myself told me that it was a GT and it had a supercharged badge under the GT which is located on the door panel. What do you think he is puttin out. My only mods thus far are Superchips programmer, poweraid throttle body spacer, AEM Brute Force Intake, and within the next week or two will be adding corsa or magnaflow exhaust, or even maybe a custom flowmaster exhaust done.You think my goat has anything for him? And you know what is really bad?, im a dam cop!

If it's a newer GT, you're done for. If it's an +05 up GT, he's gonna be puttin down a good 400~whp, and he has a lot less weight to move. If you're gonna go hunting for a kill, look for something a little lower on the food-chain until you get the hang of launching, shift-points, etc.

What GT are you talking about? GT500 or Ford GT. By the way, I wouldn't be afraid to run him. :D

Ford Mustang GT

Its a 2007 Ford Mustang GT with a supercharged badge under gt emblem on side of doors. Its all white with blue racing stripes. It may be a pirnelli Jones? model. Not sure. I'll check because I heard what dealer he purchased it from and they are suppose to have one left. He bought it for around $40,000. Yea, I am not looking to run him just yet. I have been lookin' for the right slaughter. HeEE HEE

I'm talking about a an '05 up Mustang GT. Supercharged, they're usually in the 400-420rwhp ballpark.

The Parnelli Jones cars are strictly Saleen built, and are not supercharged. They are also all Grabber Orange. If he bought his Mustang new fom the deaper w/ the supercharger already installed, it's prolly the Ford Racing unit they can dealer-install. It should still be at or near the 400 mark at the wheels. You can run him, but if you get your ass anded to you, I told ya so, lol. Good luck.

"ok first off i just raced and 06 gt and kicked its ass,"

That is nice, I never said anything about any GT. Ive only made the post.

"second off how do you get off complainin about a 1 min light"

I can complain about anything I feel like complaining about. Freedom of speech. And the light was retarded, i was sitting on a main street and there was no cars before I even got to it, and the light was at a little side street. And it was just part of the story, so I added it. Sorry your lights suck even more...

Its all good. Here in Oregon if you run a yellow light you get a ticket as if you ran a red light. Ya its stupid here. Oregon is one of the only states that a yellow and red mean the same damn thing. Stop.

Pennsylvania has an odd law on yellows too. If you speed up to go through a yellow they ticket you for running the light.

Florida has gone to something that i really like. If you look at the crosswalk you can see a timer counting down to the yellow. So if you see 20 seconds you know you have plenty of time to make it though. If you see 3 seconds and your not up to the light, it's going to change and you better be ready to stop. Florida also just raised the fine for red light running. I think it went to $1000 and a boat load of points.

Well I guess that's one Bull Sh!t law that CA has not adopted "yet" Give it time. Remember the good old days when yellow meant speed-up? :rolleyes:

This Mustang was purchased maybe three months ago, it is white with two blue racing stripes hood back to rear bumper. Rims look like the ole cragar style I believe, the rear trunk has emblem GT. It does have louvered hood and has supercharged emblem under the GT emblem on door. No Saleen on windshield. Im still lookin into. He does not even keep her in the garage. He drives a white chevy pickup and leaves his stang home alot. I dont know. Ill put up to his house in my GTO and take a picture of it and pull off. HEE HEE:lol:

^ That's a good start, but to be on the safe side you're prolly gonna need headers and exhaust too. DR's will also help alot. The new S197's w/ a blower are nothing to mess around w/. Good luck.....
