Traffic Light Duel

At my local set of traffic lights I pulled up next to a Mitsubishi FTO. I was not interested at this stage until he rolled back ot be in line with me. I thought that this would be interesting because I knew the FTO's were reasonably fast. So I flicked into power mode and turned off the aircon. The lights went green and we were off. I was in front of him until about 80ks when the auto box hesitated the change into second. I was the only person in my ED XR6, whereas he had two passengers with him, but his was a manual, I thought that it was pretty even and the result shows the same. I am pretty happy. A set of extractors to go with my high flow cat and 2.5" exhaust would have me in front of him me thinks. Just had to share that now go into the market if you are looking for a 71 Capri.

No, you didn't, you got to 80, the speed limit, and then you stayed there. It must have been a typo.
