I was coming home tonight and I was hoping to be the first car at as many red lights as possible; I like running through 1st and 2nd gear. Well I'm sitting at a light in the left lane and no one is next to me. However just as the light changed to green I looked over and a IS300 flies past me. I red line first as planned earlier and I'm right behind the IS300 in the left lane; the right lane in which the IS300 is in would cut off in <5secs. Thus I slow down because I wasn't planning to race anyone. However the IS300 driver "thinks" I am so he goes from 40mph to probably 60+mph. I figured if he wanted to play that I'd take him up on his offer so I did my normal 40mph in a 35mph and actually caught up to him at the next light.
Light turns green and the IS300 starts to speed up into the next intersection. He goes out wide and tries to turn right onto the next road. I already saw this coming so as soon as he gets into the left lane I'm already going WOT in 2nd gear into the right lane. I past him as I shifted into 3rd and fly pass him like there's tomorrow and I wave. I go through 3rd and hit 4th and slow down. We finally hit another light together but he wouldn't even come up next to me as there was no one else at the intersection. I was going to talk to him but it didn't go as planned. I guess he was mad.
I like using 1st and 2nd. I usually reserve 3rd to prove at point. Sometimes it backfires though, all in all it's always fun.
