How many of you drive your SS like this?

I was hanging out with some friends yesterday one of which also has an LS3 M6, we made a quick run to the gas station and when he was driving he was constantly dropping it down gears and hammering it!

I mean like rolling in 3rd at 3.5k dropping it down into 2nd to get it to about 4.5k and HAMMERING it and I think he even did it from 2nd at 3.5k to 1st

He says he drives it like that ALL the time, seems a little rough to me.

Any of you folks drive it like that? Thoughts?

I'm not that old (27) but I can't imagine what it would have been like if I had this car 5 years ago, I'd probably do the same thing always getting on it, burnouts, etc. Glad I waited until I was a little more mature.

im 23 and i dont drive it like that.

I may take off a whole lot quicker than i will as i get older.. but im not dropping down gears and over-revving the motor.

Well when he pays someone big$$$ to fix it or crawls under it and learns how to fix it himself he'll learn just how hard he can be on it. When I was 18 and had my 74 w/M21 I learned pretty quickly...

How do you think I got the name The_Blur?

Seriously, I've never been in a car driven like that. I would hate to be the second owner of that car when it sells.

This isnt his first muscle car, he drives them all like this. He had a decked out 5.0 that he put ALOT of work into, that thing was a beast

Anyway, just wanted to see if anyone else drove like this

It sounds like he had good reason to put the work into it.

Seems a little too extreme of driving if you're saying he makes it his driving style and not an occasional habit over revving the motor like that. I agree with what's been said that he'll be paying for it very soon HOWEVER too each his own and I've honestly seen people drive worse than that on a daily basis and they paid for their driving habits...

...on a lighter note he must not be that stupid, aside from his driving, because he did ditch the pony and get into the Camaro family
