Killed a Neon

So last thursday, I was heading back to the office with my lunch, and there's a 2 mile stretch of highway before my exit, I was driving steadily building speed up to 70, when this blue neon with twin fart cans on the back came along side for a couple secs, so I figured I'd give them a taste of my twin turbos. I just matted the pedal and at this point he was almost 1 length in front. When the power came I looked at my speedo and the needle was well past 100 my EGTs were 1200+ and I was 2 lengths ahead of him. I gotta say I have no idea how fast I was going but must have been at least 110 or 115, way too fast for a 1 ton imo, but still cool to beat the guy, and glad that ford puts good brakes in these trucks too.

Beating him up to speed wouldnt have been a prob but the fact you beat him OVER 100 miles an hour, LOL.
