Smile spanked a 350z

heading into this turn off the highway that i can take about 70 with no prob i see the Z coming up fast and i turn off the a/c and get ready. i rarely get challenged in that turn, one of my favourites..so i was waiting for this one for a long time. we both head into it nearing 90 and then he murders the brakes and i go by him on the inside..i had to brake a little too which i dont like doing but admittedly i was going in much faster than i normally would...i just pulled away from him at that point cause once i initially braked i then got on the gas again....i had a few hundred feet between us as i took my next exit and i gave him the flashers, a trick i got from ff!...so all in a days work....and oh yeah i was in 5th the whole time. once again its the driver not the car...im sure that car could have gone through as fast as i could if not faster...

wow, you beat a 350z on a turn? it was probably a lady talking on her cell phone, while smoking a cigarette, putting on her mascara and changing through the radio stations.

Maybe you were the only one "racing". When those moments append, it's hard to tell if the other guy try to chalenge you or is just braking because it's a curve (like most people do when entering a curve).

So I believe your story, but I think you only took the curve faster than a braking 350Z.
