Audi TT

Well on my way to friends house the Audi TT was in the left turn lane, as was I right on his bumper. Light turns green he goes as do i. He gets to 55mph (speed limit) i usually do 60 so i can pretty close to him, he notices and decides he is going to "speed up" and get me off his butt. Well i kept the 1 car length between us till 90mph, and we both broke down to the limit..I think he was angered.

yeah naturally aspirated 16v should have no problem keeping up with 180 - 225 hp 20v turbo...

your rear drums should keep you at a safe distance should the TTs 10.25 rear calipers bite.

it wasn't tailgateing...It is called drafting here...And i was not that close to him and it was about 5 mile stretch with a slight curve that i could see around. There was no hard breaking, or thinking about it.

What do you have done to your car? Those things are quite a bit quicker than a zetec.
