Oh I know, my daily is a new Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring SUV, could have driving a new Mustang GT. Doubt both my 6 foot boys can fit in a new Mustang.

Love the Explorer's, great SUV.

My friend bought a 1970 Chevelle L6 and his brand new Hyundai Genesis 5.0 4-door luxury car with 429 HP will kill it from 0-60 and 1/4 miles times.

He had a 2001 black Ford Lightning when they first came out. I put a Johnny Lightning Cold Air Kit on it, that was a job but we got almost 2psi out of it with a louder blower whine. His OCD was so bad he wouldn't drive it so he sold it with 1000 miles on it a few years later. I put 500 of those miles on it.

Before I left the PD I attended the first Georgia Public Safety driving course (1st of its kind in the southeast supposedly) for high center of gravity vehicles. I drove the 2015 Tahoe that I was assigned and i posted the fastest times for any of the Tahoes. However, the AWD Explorers flat killed it. The fastest laps were 12-13 seconds faster than what I could do with the Tahoe. I left with a new level of respect for them.

At least you double checked your work. Most of us wouldn't have or least I probably wouldn't have being in a hurry.
