I was on a two lane road trying to go around this guy in an AMG kompressor. I wanted to get in front of him so I could make the turn at the next light. He punched the gas and shut the door on me. So I ended up next to him at a light.
The light turned green and he nails it. He gets about 1/2- 3/4 car jump on me before I launch.
Well I left the line fast and made a clean shift into 2nd gear.. At the top of 2nd gear shifting into 3rd ( 58mph or so), I was side by side with him and pulling slightly. Just about a second later he lets off. I was definately in front of him when he let off. The speed limit was 50mph so I think he just wanted to race up to 60mph or so, or he just gave up as soon as he saw I had caught him. Not sure , but was happy to end it there.
First off those cars are fast. I made a 100% perfectly clean run from 0-60mph and I was only slightly in front of this guy. He did get the jump on me, but still.
I knew those AMG's were fast and this one didn't disappoint me.
