    Hey guy, your car just isn't fast, or is it?

    So I'm on my way to work last week on a 2 lane highway, and leaving a stop light I notice this guy pulling away from me about 100 feet ahead by the time I notice, so curious to see what he's driving. I catch up and he's in a Volvo s70. Nice looking car. We end up side by side at the next traffic light. I didn't realize what he was about till he chirped pulling out at green. Now, I know I'm at a huge disadvantage for a number of reasons. First, my clutch slips. It starts slipping at about 4000 in first and 5000 in 2nd if I'm floored, and as a result, I obviously can't launch much at all.

    Well, so I pull out like normal, and give it about 3/4 throttle in 1st and shift early, then take 2nd at about 3/4 all the way, and he's not pulling away at all. I hit 3rd and can finally hit it, and go right past him. I back off just as I hit triples and he pulls behind me.

    So I'm wondering if he gave it everything he had. I mean, I sure didn't; the pedal never hit the floor till I was in 3rd. *shrug* I dunno.

    Personally, I like toying with people that try to race me in.....less powerful cars. It's kind of fun getting on the gas, then getting off the gas right next to them while they have their car floored, then finally just flooring it and getting a nice chirp out of the tires at 80mph and leaving them behind.
