I was on the freeway going about 80mph and he was about 2-3 car lengths behind me. He was waiting for me to floor it so I did, keeping it in 5th. I was slowly pulling away from him and stopped at about 100 while he continued and zoomed pass me. Traffic was ahead so I had to slow down. I got ahead of him again going about 70-75 while he was behind me. As soon as traffic cleared, he got on it again and switched lanes. I floored it a sec later still keeping it in 5th and he walked pass me. I just didnt feel like switching gears so who knows if I couldve had him that 2nd time around if I downshifted.

Haha. I would say half and half. I thought that my car pulled good enough in 5th to show him something. :smokes:
