From a recent Tampa Racing thread:

"i cruised down hillsborough ave. 2 kill some time and all of a sudden i see a black 5.7 GTO next to me and he was pushin me a bit by droppin back and skertin passed me so i said wtf n dropped 3rd and i pulled like a half a car and then we got caught a red light once it was green we took off and i pulled about a car and thats where we stayed till 125mph and then he let off. i was happy i had atleast a full car lenghth on him it was suprising and i ended up talking to the guy he was an older guy idk if he is on here but if he is please PM me im interested in another run."

Anyone?

I'm not so sure about this story... 125 down hillsborough ave. is damn near impossible if not absolutely insane. It is so crowded and small that there's almost always an accident when someone races at that speed.

Also, if you're surprised that your hopped up 240 can pull a car-length on a GTO, then something is up. The knowledge required to get a 240 fast enough to beat a GTO is high enough that A) you would know how fast your car is, and B) you would know how fast an LS2 is.

I say cut the top speed in half and make it so that the GTO didn't even know it was racing, and you're probably closer to the truth.

Sometimes on US19 i will jump it up to 60, but only for a sec. 125 is insane!

The GTO gets up past speed very fast.

Ah, we have been cross-linked to TR....the 240 guy is trying to find who he raced.

On the Hills ave thing...I believe this guy is talking about the area btwn Memorial and Racetrack road. This is the only place on "Hillsborough" that would work for high speed unless you were outta your tree.
