FordGeek Posted June 1, 2007 Report Share Posted June 1, 2007 So, There I was at 5 am heading to work for a 6am telecon with some folks overseas; minding my own business of course. When what should pull up next to me along a deserted feeder road but a really nice looking gray SC Saleen. I never got to see the rear end, but I recognize the hood specific to the SC model. The web site says it has 465hp (at the crank of course). Now, for those who don't know me I have a Kenne Bell stage 3 on my car pushing 716hp at the wheels. Anyway, the older gentlemen in the car must have had an extra cup of Starbucks for breakfast because he begins to egg me on for a quickie. At this point we're going around 40 mph and we have nothing but road ahead of us and there are no sidestreets or underpasses where traffic can impede some spirited driving. Seeing that the coast was clear and safe, I proceeded to drop to 2nd gear and slow to around 30 mph. He gunned it first and it was on. Let me tell you something, if you can afford it, you've got to get a Kenne Bell. I was only giving the car 3/4 throttle to keep some traction, but even then it was like playing with a VW Beetle. In fact, for a while I stayed next to him (at about 90 mph) and then simply gave it full throttle. It seemed as though the guy was standing still...I let off at 120 as I was running out of road quick and I knew of some intersections that were coming up within a few a half mile or so. Needless to say when we got to the first light the guy wouldn't get next to me; I'm sure all of you know about that humbling feeling you get when you've been handed your butt. Regardless, for those of you considering anything other than a GT500 (ie. Saleen or Roush) just wait a while if you're not willing to pay ADM. Hopefully, your time will come, and when it does I gaurantee you will not have any buyer's remorse. BTW...I beat my friend's mildly modifed Z06 at the track last week. But I'll tell you what, them there things is quick! I wouldn't dare touch one of those with a stock Shelby (he was running 11.8 in stock form and he's not a great driver).
