Was on my way back from Bar Hill(10mins past Cambridge) and came up on a S60... I passed him then slowed down significantly to see if he wanted to have some fun on the *cough* track *cough*. He keep his speed around 65 for a good 3-4 miles. All a sudden he's to the right of me and punches it, so I switch lanes with the quickness and STAY WITH HIM... a good 8-10 feet from his bumper doing around 110-115. He totally thought he would smoke my S40, but man It felt good going up against another Volvo. I'm 99% sure he saw the SWEDESPEED decal along with the Moose badge. That *cough* track *cough* run was nice!<p> <IMG SRC="http://www.motorparks.co.uk/upload/big/uv_nl08ncz_(3).jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>vs<br> <IMG SRC="http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d70/aanr2002/2010%20Volvo%20S40%20T5%20R-Design/DSC03853.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>*yeah yeah... go ahead and black hole the topic.

You should have beat him like a red headed step child.<p>You have a gas T5 in a smaller lighter car and hes got a diesel, with something like 125hp.

Re: (chrisV50t)

you should be able to smoke a D5 as well. hmmm... 8-10 ft following distance at 110-115 mph? for safety reasons you should try to keep at least 11 feet away at those speeds <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">
