I know I'm way behind the curve on technology but that brake handle was neat. Didn't realize that was how they set up stuff nowadays.

One of the boy's friends asked if I could help him with a broken exhaust on his Ford Escort. I couldn't even get my floor jack under the car and asked him what he did to lower his suspension. "I cut my coil springs off with a hacksaw." Wow, what energy some youngsters have now a days.

Running the motor up to the rev limiter instead of backing off the throttle is probably the biggest change to that type of driving. I'd really love to get used to doing that in a car that's set up for it. When it's time to hit the power you just ease off the throttle and your instantly at peak RPM. Gotta be a rush.
