I'm cruising along on the freeway doing 70 at around midnight. I see an Infiniti G35 coupe racing up from behind me. The guy pulls along side and looks over and revs his engine. I looked over at him and shook my head, turned off the traction control, and then floored it. I was up to 115 before I knew it, and had opened up several car-lengths distance. I slowed down to about 95 and let him pull even, then hit it again just to make my point. I opened up about a 15-20 car length lead, got up to about 125, and then slowed back to 70, not wanting to further risk a SERIOUS speeding ticket.

The G35 driver must have been an amateur, because he should have been able to stay closer than that.

Believable.

Unbelievable. He must not have been racing this time, and maybe hit his brakes as well. Do you know how far 15-20 lengths is? he'd be like 200ft back :eek2: Okay, he probably didn't hit his brakes, but just kept going normal. He might've just wanted to linger back and hear that characteristic GTO growl a second time ;)

Could just be that the thought of a ticket occurred to him a bit sooner. G35 is not quite as intoxicating, allowing rational thought to return in a timely manner. :drink:

Maybe this can answer the age old question, "should I get a GTO or a G35?" :gr_jest:

It's about the ONLY time you can hit 70 anywhere close to Los Angeles! :hail:
