@PhatCat: it's always fun to 'push' people, then watch them get out of shape, especially when it's a nice car!
This whole trip I kept commenting to my wife about how other drivers were gauging how fast they thought they could corner based on my speed through the turn, and were in for a shock when they got out of shape.
My favorite was a pickup truck that tried to out-accelerate me as I was passing on a long straight-away leading into a long, sweeping curve. Rather than trying to outrun him I merely maintained my speed knowing that he would have to brake for the turn. His pride got the best of him, and I easily pulled away through the turn as he fought to maintain control. It looked pretty cool in my mirrors!
