I drove back to Columbus, OH the day Brenspeed installed my Saleen blower. I was almost home and was taking an on ramp at an interchange. I had the stock Pirelli 17s on the car at the time and did exactly as I described in an earlier post. I was doing about 55, dropped the tranny into 3rd manually, mashed the gas and bumped it into Drive.....smoke rolled from the rear tires and I was darn lucky I didn't put it in the ditch.

I would like to say that I'm such a great driver that I kept it out of the ditch....but that would be a lie. I was darn lucky.

When you own cars like ours you either learn a healthy respect the easy way or the hard way. The easy way and hard way usually start out the same way, but the hard way is a lot more expensive when it's over. :hihi:
