since I'm selling the porsche I decided to see what it really has

OMG.

I did a 4000 rpm drop in first....hit second just as the car started to move....blue smoke everywhere from the tires burning....hit third and sawed like hell on the wheel trying to keep her straight ...blue smoke still flying...finally got her straight in 4th at about 80.

I'm gonna miss the porsche
