    As you all know I'm always good for a pickup race. I actually posted a 100 mph run against a Camaro ZL1 on the opposite side of this same stretch in mid day last spring... but... quitting time traffic on a Friday? Plus no good options available to escape? So I had to let it go. Fabulous G8 though, perfect stance and tone. Another time and another place maybe. Pick your battles carefully fellas.

    I know it's hard to believe but I also take a pass on a pull sometimes. Risk vs reward. Smart move.

    Good video with nice annotations showing your well-analyzed decision.

    Good choice as well, and definitely hard to not take that opportunity to play around.
