I actually lived in baytown outside Houston, station at Killeen Texas (Ft. Hood) and have traveled to Dallas and stayed their for 21 days. I know how the city is and the street racing scene. Not my cup of tea as there is really no good way to gauge a car true performance doing runs from one stop light to another or a quick sprint down the highway. Each car has a different power bands and will perform better when they reach those power bands.
Example: back in the days guys thought the 5.0 mustang were faster than the IROC Z28 and off the line with 3:73 gears they were, when the Z28 had 2:73. However, once you get those cars into higher spend 60 and plus the Z28 was always pull away. Just one example that way I say meet me at the track then we can talk.Edited by Alpha11 - 12/23/15 at 1:58pm
