He was putting the 4 speed hydromatic in the set-up. Traction control was impossible. Not very practical. Just bragging rights.

there is some chach in one of those around here. I pulled up next to him and he wouldnt go. Apparantly more for looks/image, not actually running it. What a puss.

You would've left him in the dust until you hit about 80mph. All that weight sitting on the front wheels and none in the back... burnout city!
