well tonight at around 12a.m. i'll be coasting the caddy down the hill to my school. It's about 2 to 3 miles away. It's downhill the hole way until i hit flat at the bottom of the hill. WISH ME LUCK EVERYONE!

uhhhh... if it is not running, then your crazy..... when I was testing some things out in my car, got up to about 65 and shut the engine off....... the first few pumps of the brakes were fine, as there was still pressure from the p/b system, then it became rock hard and almost a worthless way to try and stop the car..... then a light turn came up and I had to really grab the wheel to turn it.... although it was too bad...... on your car which is like 3 feet longer, and more then 1500lbs more.... I can just imagine what it would be like....

...have fun though :)

Need to put my new tranny in that's at my auto shop, remember, it only goes in reverse. Yes, the engine does run, you think i'm that big of an idiot? I wouldn't be able to steer use the brakes. I've tried it before in my parking lot and it's almost impossible. But we made it down safe, only running two red lights. I had my friend drive way in front of me to let me know if any cars were coming.
