Forgot how quick the MM is from a roll

As I was leaving the local cruise night I rounded a corner leading out of the parking lot. Light at the exit was green and the first car was just leaving my view as he/she made the left. How long will that light stay green? If I miss it it's a long light. Moving along at 10mph or so, nailed it, Zoooooom down to the light, hard on the brake and into the intersection, note the light is yellow now as I passed below it, drive away at my usual putt-putt speed. Thought to myself 'from a roll this car is pretty quick'.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

That sounds kind of reckless Eric. Everyone else on here including myself never see anything past quarter throttle..

I was hopped up on Coke Zero so it's OK.

I told Ms. D what you said , she looked puzzled, said the gas pedal has two positions all the way up and on the floor.

That light has the shortest green and longest red in the history of traffic lights. I've done the same maneuver myself countless times.
Missed the show this week. Worked late again.

It's okay, not a mustang.
Crowds of bystanders need not be worried.
