I had a chance just tonight to race a Corvette. not sure what model but it looked fairly new and was manual. I ended up getting beat but not before my wagon demanded respect off the line and around a tight corner. I was at a light and waiting to make a slightly tight left turn. This Corvette comes flying up to the light next to me. He looks over and nods, so I say screw it. The light goes green and I take the turn in first gear like a champ. The Corvette totaly fishtails his car around the corner. I hit second and by the time I hit third he was right next to me. I knew when he hit third gear he would smoke me and sure enough he pulled several cars immedietly. I let off and cought up to him at the next light. I was behind him and we both gunned it in first and I was nearly at his bumper, he had a car or two on me in second also. We get to another light and I was still not able to get on his oppsosite side so we did the same thing at the light. The same result, he was only about 1 1/2 cars ahead of me to 60. Then he must have been pissed because he pulled a very dangerous move and served in between two cars and could have caused an accident. Even though I lost it was still fun. I wondering what he was thinking when he couldn't lose me in first and second. Those cars have a wicked third gear, sick!
