Hmm...O this is more of a question than anything..but Im sitten at the light in town and this punk that ownes a Lightening..you know..the kind that never has a woman with him and rides around with his windows down and music blarren...Well I look at him and think..."I aint even gonna dignify him with a race"...the light turns green and he slams her down...and of course I have to represent so I floor it...Hmm...well I not only passed him I smoked him...when he took of he jumped about half a length ahead but when I kicked my car in I just blew by him..so here is my question..are FORD Lightenings over rated..?...I have had so many people tell me how fast they were I figured a lil more compition..but all these remarks also come from slow driven FORD lovers..you know..the kind that own mustangs..and thus own the baddest cars on the planet...LOL...

Well, Lightning is rated at 5.5 seconds to 60 from the factory.

Maybe he went from 1st to 3rd on you ?!!? or maybe he just didn't know how to drive.

Ford Lightnings burn. I've seen stock ones smoke Supras.

And I'm sorry, but your 238is (I hope you mean 328is) < Supra

they are only in auto, and yes that guy would burn you if he floored it all the way, maybe he was just messing with you.

I've seen them in the 12's all day. Stock they are quicker than a GT mustang, I'm thining in the 13's if they've got the tire for it.

My professional opinion is he gassed it, and backed out when he got you out of the hole.

As a side, triggrhaapi- you in LA? How fast is that 3?

im either thinking BS, or he wasn't trying at all. my buddy has a lightening and it would definitely smoke a 328 (no offense tho)....and since they are auto they take very little skill to drive
