Well, at my uncle's place in western Mass I had done some tweaking on my
4ktq and was doing a WOT run in first to see what I was hitting for
boost (I was playing around with boost controllers and such).  Mind you
topping out in first gear isn't that fast.. 30 maybe?  Getting there
doesn't take long tho!

Well aparrantly my car sounds a few MPH faster than it is actually going
(3" pipe with a single rear muffler will do that to ya!) and a guy that
lives down the street actually started chasing after my car with a
rake!  I can understand being upset about people "racing" around a
residential neighborhood but c'mon, I was going UNDER the 35 MPH speed

None the less, from then on I did all my 1st gear WOT runs in the
opposite direction ;-)
