I was driving through some windy road and came upon this silver Mercedes who started tailgating me. He was going to turn right at the "T" while I turned left. I guess he must've heard my Borla exhaust and he followed me instead. This old man finally caught up with me on a light.
Old Man: Rolls down window and says, "You wanna go?"
Me: "Sure, as long as it's not over 100 or anything crazy like that."
Old Man: "Don't worry, you won't get over 100."
Well we both got over 100 MPH a couple of times at a 45 zone.
So we ran through traffic. I had him at a third gear roll and he couldn't catch up. I know because he wouldn't let me get beside him and then we go. So as soon as I went, he went also. We get to another light and traffic was clear this time. I got him in 1st gear, and as soon as I shifted, he caught up and got a car length in front of me. Then when I shifted in third, he really pulled lengths on me. I guess I need to learn to shift faster .
I found out this car was AMG? automatics, 0-60 MPH in 4.7 seconds, low 13s in the 1/4 mile, and $70k. With power shifting, I might've kept up with him, but I want my gears to last longer than that.
