On my way home last week on a winding country two lane, there was a Dodge in front of me. We were being slowed by a couple of cars in front of us. The Dodge happened to turn off the same way I was going to go, onto one of my favorite roads. Well, I heard him open it up and then noticed his wide rubber. So I gave pursuit. Not really a problem, the Eco carves OK and spins up fast. This went on for about 4 miles and I sensed he was getting annoyed by my Pit Bullish hanging on. When he turned off I got a look at his front fender and was surprised to see a Demon emblem. Wonder if he had a chance to see the nothing on my front fender. To add additional insult, I'm 65 with bad eyes and slow reflexes.

I wouldn't flatter yourself too much, it's so much easier to follow a fast pace than to set one yourself. I wouldn't say the Demon is amazing at handling, but a skilled driver going 10/10 (which shouldn't happen on public roads anyway) would be far on the horizon.

I did the same to a Taycan...in a Mini Countryman :cwl:

He kept speeding up (two lane road, so I wasn't even on him) and I kept winding up the hamster wheel to match.

The Demon is SEVERELY traction limited. My wife pissed a guy off once by keeping up with him on a wet road. Wanted to just walk away, and couldn't. 800+ horsepower doesn't mean a damn thing if all you can put down is 300 before spinning.

I blew past a corvette the other day in my 6000lbs Avalanche. he just set there and spun his tires in the snow. He tried but could never catch up. Couldn't believe how slow he was.

I slept at a holiday inn express last night. I feel smarter than this thread.

Ha, one day a guy in a Cayenne turbo saw me pull out with some "spiritedness" and he gave chase. He couldn't help himself. In fact, lots of guys have followed (or tried to) when they see me hooning it. Pickup drivers are the biggest egomaniacs by far and many times try to give chase. They only catch up when I let them 😂. I don't mind as long as they aren't so close I can't see their headlights. All I have to do is speed up in a curve and... bye.

I saw a pickup truck last night try to race a C8 when the C8 was obviously just cruising, then he hit his hazard lights like he won. Pretty funny. C8 driver was probably like "who's this idiot?"

All joking aside I do have a truck and I egg guys on sometimes to see what they got under the hood. Not trying to race them just trying to force them to open it up. Guys in trucks do it to me also but usually it's to hear my exhaust. Except Dodge guys in big trucks. They usually think they're fast because someone told them that a Hemi is the ultimate engine and nothing could ever beat them, other than another Hemi.

I had a lifted diesel pickup rolling some coal give me a good run. We kept even up to 45. The funny part is I was driving my 17 year old 4 cyl Honda Accord.
