I was turning onto Colonial Blvd and at the same time on the opposite side of the street I see this bright yellow C5 Vette pull out.
So he is now in the far right hand lane and I'm in the left hand lane. (road is 3 lanes wide, middle lane is clear)
I look over at him (I've just shifted into 2nd gear) and he looks over at me. I didn't want to get caught off guard (off boost) so I nailed it in 2nd gear (waiting for boost to build). I then see him slam it in 2nd gear and nail it. I had timed it pefectly. I was now right at 4000 rpms (sweet spot in 2nd gear). We both pulled hard but I had a slight lead (about 1/2 car length at the top of 2nd gear). I slammed it into 3rd gear and he seemed to lose a little more ground. I was now about 1-2 cars in front of him at 75 mph or so and he gives up.
It wasn't that long of a race 35mph - 75mph or so but it was long enough to show him who was faster. He stayed behind me until I turned off.
