i don't know man. most foci are quickest coming off of the line. do you have an auto or mtx? if you have a mtx, you should've whooped him off the line and not even had to worry about the catch-up part.

i have an auto. but i love it on the freeway. i got it up to 108 mph. i'll try take pics of it next time i do that. for proof. once you get past 90 out of no where it gets more balls. oh it also helps(for racing)if you push the overdrive button once past 50 it helps to go faster, if you didnt already know. i have a 2003 se sedan spi... it is a mitsu lancer and sentra gxe killer. so far my victims
