Check this video out-Thought you might like this....I filmed this last week before work - as I was a few minutes early one day, just happened to go by Gilroy CalTrain, and noticed the NB was about to leave....I hurried up to Leavsely Rd and Monterey Hwy...and started the pace..has a good stretch of highway with few traffic signals that would be red this early.......though the Train may have been chasing me at first...!!!

you need catch that MP36 leading back sometime, that would be sweet, gets kind of boring pacing those F40s down monterey hwy

Ok,,,,I'll hafta set up at a grade-crossing for that one,,,there would be way too much traffic to try that in reverse on S/B on Monterey Hwy in the late PM...........but I'll work on it, maybe a shorter segment..

Ok,,I'll give it a try....watch 'em the next few days....I may try both, get 'em idling into Gilroy, or park up by Masten twds Rucker.....see what I can come up with...( my luck it'll be an F40 every-time..)

Monterey road is a great place to street race. Well it was until the import fad of the late 90s.

I like the way you can hear your Super Duty rev up as you accelerate. :)
