: Ferrari in my rear view mirror closing fast but when he pulled along side, I could see it was a Lotus
: Espirit. At the Ft Meade interesection, the light turns red up ahead and we both slow to a stop with
: the Lotus on my left. The driver is alone and guns his engine, so I do same accepting his challenge as I
: disable my ASC. I've a passenger and tell him I wish he was not with me because I don't need any
: handicap against Lotus. (I don't know the weight of a Lotus but it looks light, I'd guess 2800 lbs or
: so). The light turns green, we start even but I pull 1/2 car length ahead, we both shift to second
: about the same time and I jump to a full car length and hold that lead after shifting to third until I let
: off the accelerator at about 90 mph because of traffic ahead. The Lotus uses the opportunity to fly
: by then quickly exits the freeway with it's tail between it's legs. I am frankly very surprised I beat him so easily.
: 99 M3/2 with Dinan CAI, TB, AFM, Stage 3 chip, Dinan exhaust.
