well, I was at this stop light and saw a volvo 850. I don't konw what it was but I floored my gas and I was up for a sec when he kind of passed me. About half a car lenghth. I guess .5 sec is big enough to see the "opponent" in the side view mirrorThen we had to stop for the next stop light. I had to take a right to work. But uh.. I turned on ECT, and TRAC off. Put it on Automatic and just floored it. For the start, I just lifted my foot off the brake and went straight to gas.. are these the best possible way to start? I have a stock is300 and don't know what 850 he had.
