Default Short race with an 08 GT

My car is in sig but was driving around in mexico last night with a buddy and we talked his friend with an 08 GT that runs 8.2s-8.3s@84 in the 8th unto a race we decided to go from a first and 2nd gear roll, the first i mashed the gas in first and was spinning so i let off and got back in and it still spun so i shifted to 2nd and continued my spin, all the while still right next to the gt, so around 65 or so it hooked and i had to hit 3rd at around 75, but oh wait my synchros will not allow hard shifts so of course it didnt go in(this problem just started yesterday) so Ill take the L on that one even though i was beside him spinning lol. So the second race from 45 is decent for both of us in 2nd we hit it and i pull about 1.5 cars from 45-70 and let off before shifting to 3rd because it was an obvious outcome. Super nice guy and good looking Stang.

The 3V's respond pretty well to mods and sound sexy but sounds like you were matched up good

Good kill!

That makes much more sense. I was about to ask "what 08 GT is this around here!?"
