Driving Slow

Don't get me wrong, love a 0-60 4 second run but am I the only one who appreciates driving through my subdivision crawling in 2nd gear? Just awesome to let off the throttle and hear the growl, even when moving slow. ;)

I agree, espcially when you pull up on the throttle and get that whap-whap-whap-whap from the pipes!
 
Rolling up to 4,000 RPM's and letting off the throttle sounds incredible especially with TK. Windows down of course. ;D

I do the same thing, it's like music. I like the random burbles and pops, hoping trackey will enhance that a bit. Nothing make me smile more then the sound of this engine. Well thats not a 100% true but you know what I mean. :)

Just qualify your statement with "with my clothes on" and you're covered ! :D

TK does enhancement the music, you'll like it.
 
Rolling slow past Prii is one of my favorite things about the car. Lift off then apply just a couple mm of throttle so it prevents the j-brake and just cackles.
 
I went out for a quick drive last night but my throttle responses were limited by a County Sheriff that was following me. Once I got home and pulled in the drive, I realized I still had a blast even though I didn't see anything past 3,500 rpms! That second gear cackle was still awesome.

Glad I'm not the only one who enjoys driving a Boss slow!!!
 
Very Cool, reminds me of driving my Boss last year into a car show at a chevrolet dealership, local dealer has a show once a month during the summer, on his last show I drove into the den of corvettes and camaros, first gear real slow, the looks was priceless... :eek:. hey kyfig did you turn on TK?

Not yet, I'm still confused about whether the TK voids the Ford ESP Warranty. I want to buy a 7 year, 36,000 mile warranty but have read conflicting reports about it.

Everyone's entitled to my opinion. ;)
I can't wait until I get my 2nd quarter build in July. In the absence of this orgasmic experience you people are having, I was wondering if anybody has a mp3 file you could share with me so I can play this at max volume in my wife's Prius. Do you think I would be able to fool anyone at the traffic light that I had a 302 under the hood? I am thinking that I could even use this in my Boss so I can listen in stereo. What do you think?

love that growl when driving in low gear
I have not turned on the radio yet, why bother when exhaust pipes make such sweet music :)
