On my way home from getting my windows tinted, I cruise past this guy in a Cadi Deville DST. I didn't think anything about it because I was more interested in the C5 Vette with aftermarket exhaust in front of me. I pulled up next to the C5 and he didn't bite. He just let me cruise on by. About the same time the DST comes flying up on me and gets right on my rear bumper? (WTF) We are going about 80mph at this point. So I speed up a little bit to about 90mph and he's still on my bumper. So I gently move over in the slow lane so he can pass me. When I move over he moves up next to me and gets about 1/2 car in front of me and sits there? I new exactly what he was doing. So I speeded up to about 95mph to see what he would do. He did the same keeping his 1/2 - 1 car length lead on me.
I just couldn't play his game any longer. I looked down the road and it was clear for miles in front of us so I dropped it down to 5th gear and floored it. I have to give him credit he tried his best to stay with me. I took my STi al the way to redline in 5th and then shifted into 6th gear. I was doing about 148mph and still hadn't hit any speed limiter when I let off. He fell way back. Its hard to count how many cars but it was a lot. I mean he was way back there. I slowed down. He then came up along side of me with a big smile on his face and gave me a nod. Pretty cool. I think he just wanted to find out how fast an STi is.
Pretty fun experience. The best part was how easily my STi hit 148mph and was still pulling hard. The car was also completely stable and smooth. I'm sure the car can easily hit 160mph.
