I thought acuras were supposed to be fast?

So coming home the other night around 1 am, I'm in a good mood. Got the radio blastin, singing along all by myself. Now Sunrise blvd. is a 7 mile stretch all straight, 3 lanes on either side and very few stoplights. So I'm running about 65 mph, after I go through an intersection I hear someone doing a small peelout. I look behind me and see a blue Acura RSX speeding around the corner. The guy gets even with me and I look over while I'm singing "Knock Three Times" By Tony Orlando and Dawn. The guy speeds up a little so I stay with him. He gets on it, and I hang with him, but don't pass. So we both look at each other and I've got a huge grin on my face while I'm still singing. So we come to a stop light and I'm trying to hurry and get stopped so I can boost the truck a bit. So I boost it to around 1500 before the light changes. His tires make some noise, my tires make some noise and we're moving. We were even for 2 or so seconds and I just start walking away from the guy. I run til about 95 or so and shut it down and tap he brakes a few times to let him catch up. He just passes right by me, without so much as a look...sore loser :roflmao:

I'm fairly certain, this will be my last "race" for quite some time. Chevron has a big sign out front that says $4.15!
