1st run with a Camaro SS
On an private isolate road somewhere on the planet....
I was running about 75 and came up on this SS in all black. It looked nice without all the teenager stripes on it. We were in a long bend and every time I tried to pass he sped up. Finally at about 85 I punched it. I slowly pulled away.
I wondered if the guy was just scared of opening it up in a curve. A lot of guys can't judge high speed turns and lift when they still have plenty of grip. Many guys can't handle doing over 100 in a curve.
Later we got to a straight and he was itching to come get some. We were doing about 85 and we punched it and opened it up. By 120 I had about 2 car lengths on him and was opening up. I think his car must have been an automatic because I was expecting a loss or a dead even race. I believe the autos have slightly less top end and lower HP.
Fun time, no one else around, and a win.
