i was going to go eat at a restaurant when i saw an evo all of a sudden going down the same street i was, instead of turning off, i stayed on the highway and got next to him in a dual left turn lane. Anyhow, i had the outside while he had the inside lane. He was alone in his car while i had my friend and my brother. Light turns green and i see him get off slowly, at this point so do i, and he just goes at it while he made a closed left turn and i made a bit of a wide turn. I too floored it when i saw him go, but i had stupid esp go off and my power was reduced for a second, he gets about 2 cars ahead of me in the straight away and he is still flooring it. We were dead even with him having about a 2 car lead to about 80mph, when all of a sudden i started to gain on him. To about 110mph i had closed my gap to about 1 car length. He at this point started to slow down and got into another turn lane to get off.
I was really amazed that my car started to pull the evo. The v6 must really help up high, i guess. The evo driver looks like one of those mid 30's enthusiasts. I was quite amazed at the run.
p.s. it was the day before labor day, and the 'highway' where i was at was pretty much empty. There was seriously not even a car in front of me, or by me, other than the evo. I know its dangerous.
