So I was out on a rare nice Indiana afternoon, and along pulls a Civic Vtec hatchback, lowered, requisite fart can exhaust, stupid ricer website sticker...I shift into manual mode (2nd at about 35) bc I wanted no automatic downshift...Three honks and go, well he jumped big. So I go, and FORGET TO UPSHIFT, pinging the rev limiter. DUH!! I shift into 3rd and am pulling on him but he lets up big, race over. Now dude probably thinks he has something special. I am kicking myself for being a moron and forgetting the shift! Now he'll go bragging to his ricer buddies about how he "killed" a G8 in his little go-kart. He was more than stock, but not as fast as me. And even with him jumping the start, moral of the story, don't forget to upshift in manual mode. Better yet, don't race in it either. I would have killed him in sport mode, but my ego wanted that instant power....
