never heard of this thing before....

was on a two lane and someone turned left in front of me....so down to a crawl...guy behind me pulls out to try and pass....I think im in 4th So I punch it without downshifting and he was unable to gain on me ...but seemed to keep up pretty well...he fell in behind at 100.

Then we stop and turn left onto a divided highway...I dont excel too hard and kind of wait for him in 2nd..he comes flying around the corner and swings to the outside....again...I punch it from 2nd.....Never saw him till i ran up behind someone....fairly quickly about midway thru 3rd gear :(

so...anyone ever heard of those things before?? are they sporty?
