i raced this guy on the expressway a couple of times, but not really real races. He would hit it about a car in front of me, and i would have to play catch. Wierd thing is that everytime i would start to pull on him, mind me im behind him trying to play catch, and he is a few cars infront of me because he hit it before me. We did this a couple of times, and i would catch up pretty nicely. I never passed him because everytime i caught up to with a car length, i would let off. We ran up to about 130 around this huge turn on the expressway, i started catching up to him, when i noticed how dangerous it was and let off, and so did he. He got up next to me on the expressway and i asked him what he has, and hes like he just got it automatic. I told him i had a chip and intake. He also had an extra passenger, that maybe why i started to catch up. I actually thought i would start to catch up because he was letting off, but when i came up to him at the light, hes like 'man is that the r32.' i told him yeah, and hes like damn, i could see you catching up quickly every time i hit it. I told him to hit it from a roll, so we ran to about 5-50mph... i let him shift down in his tiptronic, and he got the hit @ 5mph.... instant car, and i hit it it, instantly pulled up next to him, 40mph comes, i shift into second... ESP limits my damn power!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i guess i had spinnage from first to second gear, and he gets a half carlength lead when i gave up. I got up next to him and told him my esp got me, and he said he noticed because my car lurched back. all in all, it was a fun little cat and mouse race. I'm positive if i ran him side by side, i would have easily gained carlengths on him. He NEVER once started to pull on me, exept when he would hit it and i wasn't ready, but then i would easily start to catch up again.
all in all, those things are quite ferocious, never seen a car pass me from a car lenght behind that fast. Now i know how others see my car when im behind them, drop it and floor it past them... looks like a rocket passing you.
i'm just happy he didn't try making any excuses... and he told me the truth that i was catching up pretty fast on his ass. Oh btw, the 5-50mph race, i also hit rev-limiter!
anyhow, from a stop, i know the g35 is toast. gotta love awd... too bad i can't really launch, i still have summer tires, that are almost all bold THEY SUCK IN THE DAMN COLD!!!!!!!!!
