Race happened on route 9 from 45 - 100mph. As I pulled up to a light, a Volvo S60R pulled up to two lanes left of me. When light turned green, I never thought of anything and gradually sped up. However, Volvo S60R went WOT pulling 5-7 cars lengths instantly. Guess he thought I wanted to race him or something.
After about 1/4 miles ahead, I pulled next to him and gave him a sign if he wanted to race. We were at about 45mph in 2nd gear. As I gave him a signal, he went WOT instantly and gained about 1/8 car length on me. By end of 2nd gear, he was about 1/8 car length ahead - neither one of us pulling on one another. As I shifted into 3rd gear, we were once again dead even. 4th gear came and surprisingly, I slowly gained about 1/4 car length. I had to slow down because of car ahead of us at around 100mph.
I gave him a thumbs up and he gave me a peace sign. He had this puzzling look on his face as how his 300hp car can be beaten by a Subaru
