V6 Camry walks away from me easily....

I caught the older body style Camry out of the tolls on the GS Parkway last week. We both nailed it for shits and giggles and he pummelled me. Five speed Camry's are soooo rare, figures this would be the one I choose to race. Not much to really say here except he pulled away easily, I didn't even bother with 3rd gear, I went right from redline to 2nd to 5th, and gave up. I did a bit of research and one of the wine and cheese magazines did get a 15.5 @ ~90 MPH out of a V6 5 speed Camry. That seems about right, as he pulled me convincingly in 1st and 2nd gear.

'06 Sonata....15.3 @ 92 MPH
'02 Elantra 5 speed....16.4 @ 84 MPH
'04 GTO....13.4 @ 103 MPH
'95 Mustang....569 rwhp, no ET/MPH yet

How do you know it was a 5 speed? Because I know how rare those are... and you will see more ferarris than v6/5speed camrys.

Definately a sleeper eh.
