Well, this quick little run really got me pissed off. I'm on my way to work this morning and I pass up a 350z and so he decides to get behind me and start following. Well, it's almost pointless because we're in morning traffic but we both end up going towards the toll-road, which is usually pretty empty.
Finally an opening appears right befor a mild sweeping turn onto the toll-road. I punch it from about 60mph and jump out to a good little lead, maybe put another car or two between us going into the turn... I think he was probably not quite ready. I let up in the turn a little going about 80mph and he caught some ground. Stupid me, I miss 4th gear (i know, i know) and he shoots by me and starts zig-zagin through traffic. By the time I get it gear he's pretty much gone... I was honestly surprised how fast he shot by me. What ticked me off even more is that he put his hazards on! What an ass!
First off, I need to learn how to drive but I am curious, how close would a highway race be if I could've driven well? I figure the 350z would probably end up walking away but could a cobb stage2 wrx hang with it for a while? It did seem that I was holding him off decently until I mis-shifted. Oh well, I'm sure I'll find another Z to play with... I only see about 50 of them a day.
