so, i am driving down a relatively traffic free road, when a new 300hp 4.2litre audi A6 pulls up next to me. he gives me a thumbs up and slams the pedal to the floor. though i usually don't entertain such challenges, the roads were empty, and the stretch was too tempting. he had about a 3-4 car jump on me, but i thought i would be able to catch him. i downshifted to 2nd. tached it out to 7.5 shifted to 3rd. (rpms dropped pretty dramatically following the upshift) his high end torque was kicking in at that point and i never caught him. i dropped off of the accelerator well before approaching the populated part of the road and he disappeared in the horizon. i suspect we hit 115-120ish in that stretch. the question is, should i have easily passed him? is my car not running to its potential? i bought the car used, and i never drove any other nsx's hard enough to compare the acceleration, but it just doesn't seem fast enough. there is definitely no 'head jerking' sense of power. are there any tests that i can do to tell if it is running correctly? thanks.
