So I'm driving home from work today and hit a long stretch of straight clear road. There is a grain truck ahead of me and some car (the Nissan) behind me. I pass the truck and the Nissan follows.. keeping close to my tail. I keep the gas pushed down in 5th... getting up to 110 pretty quickly.. and this guy keeps right up. I wasn't worried too much, but fairly impressed. So a mile or so down the road (after slowing down for an intersection) this guy is still behind me... just tailing me and keeping up. I figure I'll drop it to 4th (at about 65) and pull away easily. Granted I wouldn't say I'm the best at aggressively shifting... but this guy was on my tail up through 120... at 130 I started pulling away and by the time I hit 140 he was quite a ways behind me, but still I was impressed with how much he did keep up. I let off at close to 150 and coasted down to what seemed like a crawl at 70 and he caught up to me. We gave each other a thumbs up and went our separate ways. Do you guys think he'd done some work to that car or are they just that fast? Or do I just suck that bad at shifting? I really don't race at all and I rarely mess around like that unless the conditions are prefect.
