tonight, I raced that guys M3 again. It's an SMG hardtop, stock.
We agreed to race from a 1st gear roll this time, i told him 25mph he says fine. When push came to shove on the highway, he would not race in 1st gear, from that mph saying it's too low i guess he was scared i would shoot out in front. So, i said go from whatever rpm you want just not 1st gear then. Of course he picks 50mph, which is right in between 2nd and 3rd IMO. I opted to race from 3rd gear, while he was in second.
He would jump out ahead at first, because I had alittle turbolag, and was not at perfect rpms like he was. while he shifted into 3rd I would make up some ground, and I slowly reeled him in. By 115mph in 4th gear when I let off, I was about a car lenght ahead!
Go figure The first race wasn't a fluke afterall.
