Finally put the paddle shifters to good use today........

I've slowly been getting used to my new baby , the paddle shifters were a completely new experience for me. Been practicing with them here and there. Nothing crazy. Today there was this kid in a nice new electric blue 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor. Beautiful truck actually. But the kids driving like an butt cutting people off weaving in and out of traffic just to get 1 car ahead. There was a red light and the road up ahead was a merge into one lane. I knew he was going to floor it to try to get in front of me. Usually I dont care , I really dont. But today I decided to have some fun in my new Merc (I've really been handling it with kid gloves) . So......out of S into M. At the light I hit it.........Truck was gone.....Boom boom Boom shifters were pretty smooth I hit a turn and never saw the punk again. I could hear his 6.2L V8 roar loudly because I had the Top down, but it faded quick.

I didn't buy this car to race. No I had my share of that. I'm over it . This is a cruiser for my wife and I to enjoy but its nice to know its got some serious get up and go when needed !

It's a good feeling to know that it's so easy to be able to lose the hotrodders so quickly in order to have a safe ride. I love these cars.
