    Raced an Mercedes S500

    The other day I was crusing when I came along side a Mercedes S500 at a stop light. It looked new, it was all black, and had massive brakes with cross drilled rotors, and it looked pretty mean. I see the driver is with his wife or something, but I thought what the hell. The light turned green and I took of kind of slow and then punched it to see what he would do, He punched it and was about 3-4 car lengths back, I only took it up to about 70. We came to another light, and this time he knew what was up. Again the light turned green I did not attempt to launch what so ever, but this time he was about 1.5 carlengths behind me and by the top of third gear I was about 4 carlengths ahead, then I let off for him to catch up. He rolled along side of me with a big grin on his face, his wife was laughing and he gave me a big thumbs up. Seemed like a cool dude, I wish there was more people like that out here. I guess those cars have a 300 hp V-8, but I guess they are a little heavier then our cars! I'm sure if it was an AMG he would of smoked me.
