I got to ride my buddy's Peugeot with a 'launch lever'.
You think going up hills on a kitted Moby is cool and easy-breezy...man, it's nothing compared to actually being able to down shift to crazy rpms and accelerate as if you never even hit the hill at all. It was really impressive.
The 80 Metra does hills pretty well too as long as it's above 25 mph or so. It'll chew them up pretty good.
