Now the long line of cars that were behind him are whizzing by you and and by the time they clear you might as well settle in and enjoy the slow ride up. The great HP / Touque equalizer of lost momentum has won the battle.
Yes - we're underpowered, but have spent plenty of time behind folks who aren't that were caught by the reality of traffic conditions. We just roll with the circumstances and enjoy the ride.
True that! The Journey is the Destination.
I know a few motor heads that would pay the ginormous $ to get the ISX, and immediately seek out ways to chip it, etc......and still want more.
See all y'all's at the next light.
