Well today i decided to see which one would beat the other. I figured the firebird would stomp the escort into the ground but i was wrong. I was in my firebird and my friend was in my escort. On the take off he had me and was pulling away.......then slowly the firebird started to catch up but when i say slowly i mean it. The firebird ended up beating the escort but not by much. I was suprised to see that from my escort. I also have a huge 2 ton jack in the back seat and two jack stands with 2 tool kits plus my 3 10's and the amp. The firebird has nothing in it and it has dual flowmaster exhaust plus an air intake mod.
