Damn, those things are way slower than I thought. I was driving on the 405 around 12:30AM last night and I was followed as I weaved through traffic by an A4. Finally, just after the 101 interchange, traffic opened up and I allowed the A4 to pull alongside me for a little fun. We started around 75mph, with me in 4th, and he gave the signal and gunned it. I downshifted to 3rd, which launched my car after him, and once I shifted into 4th again at 85mph, I was even with him and pulling hard, my turbo gauge spiked to 19PSI for roughly 4 seconds, long enough for me to pull ahead of him and at around 110mph, I shifted to 5th. By then I was a good 3 carlenghts on him. I kept going until 120mph, where I lifted off and let him catch up, then paced him to give him a thumbs up, just before reaching my exit from the freeway. A good time was had by all, and I must say that the mule really loves high speeds.
