Every single time I've ever raced an IS300 I've always smoked him. I guess this was the reason i wasn't expecting yet another totally stock looking IS300 to smoke me. I couldn't even hear any exhaust or anything. We were on the free way and he just kind of trailed behind me , waiting for a clearing. As soon as one came he shot up next to me and I was thinking "Get ready bucko". Then all of the sudden a huge scream shot from the car and he was off. I quickly downshifted and followed. I gained enough back while below 90 to get up even with him again. It was looking like it was going to be even, we were both giving it everything we had. I was watching the spedometer climb closer to 120, I expected a bad outcome when 5th gear came around. Sure enough, when the shift to 5th was due, not only did I miss the shift at first, losing about a car length, but then he started pulling pretty hard. It's the fastest IS300 I've raced so far. Lately I've been comming accross some pretty fast cars on the road. People in the traditionally import scarce Jackson Mississippi are starting to get their sh*t together. I'd better get that SR40 turbo quick before I start getting pulled on like that all the time.
