He started it afterall! I was going to my office, 55 mph zone and we lined up at a stop light. Looked like early 90s car, nicely mainteined. I slipped the clutch at 2500 rpm, pretty nomal start, he was 1/4th car behind, then I shifted to 2nd at red line and floored it, and shifted to 3rd at redline again and then looked at my rearview mirror .... he was probably 4 car distance behind me!! I started slowing down at 85..
