Took on a Corvette last night on the Blue Route...not sure what year of the vette...I think it was a recent purchase of a used...chrome pipes if that helps...no plate, temporary tags.
Not that I drive like an a-hole...I am super cautious about appropriate speed, in the right places...he was driving like a douche, especially in traffic areas...passed cars on the right side of an on ramp trying to get on the highway just so he could get past me!
Noticeable difference in the cars - agility. I did notice that in lane changing and turns there was no chance he could stay with me if we were on a track...but on the long, open straight between exit 9 and Villanova just after the normal speed trap section, I could tell that he could have pulled away...we were neck and neck at 100mph when I pulled off the throttle...it was getting stupid and I didn't trust his judgement.
Last thing...I can't tell you how proud I was to be driving a Lotus...I kept thinking about what Wallaby said on production #'s...about 500 a year...I saw 4 Corvettes on my ride, 0 Lotus, and 4 cops - man were they out last night!
What a fricken blast...50 mile cruise under a full moon.
