I'm not trying to be an a$$hole, and the vid is cool, but isn't this a bit of a ricer-flyby? I mean the vette was just cruising, right?

Hauling major ass? The vette and the camera car are going about 10 mph faster than the other traffic, on the beltway that puts the vette at about 80~85 mph. And it should be pretty obvious the vette never accelerates. Some people, like me, think street racing is immature dangerous behaviour, so maybe he just didn't feel like acting stupid.

holy shit man, never saw u post before...you old timer!

ok, sorry, he was going fast in the fast lane, looks around 90 MPH or so.....

I personally agree, and I dont street race....I drag race at a track under professional supervision and safety standards..... 8)

why are everyone posting saying that the Vette wasn't racing? It's obvious that the Vette was NOT racing, and the fact that the vid. footage of the IS going by the Vette was like a "Changing Lane" footage as mentioned earlier. That the actual footage of them lining up was missed.

What did I miss? I didn't see where anyone claimed the vette was racing. Also, it's obvious the vette and the camera car are not going the same speed. The vette is obviously pulling away from the camera. All it looks like and all I think it's claimed to be is a little demo of performance and acceleration at a relatively high speed.

They did race but I didn't catch it on camera...there was just too much traffic. This was the only good shot I got of doublins passing the vette.
