Day 1 with the NEW BOSS
I received the car last night. It was not until this afternoon that I was off of work that I was able to really get into it. I drive a very curvy canyon road home each day.
I have not driven a stick in 10 years, so I am still getting used to it again. It is like riding a bike, but I am not super confident yet.
Anyway, I am blown away simply from the acceleration of this vehicle. At high RPMs, it feels like you are being shot out of a cannon. And, it handles so incredibly well. So tight in the turns. I feel like I am on a very smooth rollercoaster.
From a complete stop, I was spinning the tires in first, second and third gears! So much more impressive than my 2012 5.0 convertible.
Honestly, someday I am sure I will add a supercharger (after my warranty is up), but I cannot even imagine what I would do with another 200 or 300 hp to the ground.
Honestly, for cars like this, they should force drivers to take a special class on how to drive it. For someone not used to the power or proficient driving a stick, I can see where people could get hurt. It really is like giving a gun to a baby.
I haven't even used the track key that came with the car yet. I am trying to get a feel for it stock so that I can really feel and understand the difference.
Oh, the Recaro seats are AMAZING.
This car is truly a beast and just so fast and nimble. So much faster than my buddy's 2012 5.0 NA car with mods.
I cannot wait to drive it some more. :laughlitt
