Pwned a TC

I was driving home from class tonight (around 8:30pm), and a girl in a Scion TC pulled up next to me while we were going about 45-50. She downshifted and hit it, then I did the same. After hitting about 7k RPM's in 2nd I then shifted into 3rd, and looked in my side mirror to see her at least 3 car lengths behind.

stock tc drivers are dumb if they think they can pull at all on an ss/sc. they prob could take my 2.2l, but not all cobalts are the same. what a dummy.

well, what's the redline in 2nd, 57-ish? 2 shifts weren't even worth the time it took to make them

mostly teasing the TC though
