A stock 3rd gen RX7 seems to run out of wind from third gear on. So from a 50-60 MPH punch, I am not surprised by the results. Just be glad he probably wasn't running an ECU upgrade. My 3rd gen with PFS mods stayed with a Viper once from 0-110 on a second attempt (missed a shift on first attempt)...But from 110 on, it looked like the Viper had another gear the way he walked away from me.

: We were on 495 (VA/MD Beltway) going into Rt.66 when he and I gunned it. I quickly noticed the smoke coming out of his exhaust so I downshifted to 3rd and was on his ass. I was next to him at no time then passed him being in 4th gear over 6K rpm. After I passed him, he gave me a thumbs up. Just my 2 cents.
