Oh yes...who says diesels are slow off the mark!?
Last night when joining a motorway I was beside a CTR (model before last). Feck it I thought...I'll give him a go and see if he bites.
Lights go green and I get a smooth start with no spinning or wheel hop, I'm gunning it and so is he.
Just before the motorway opens up properly I'm a car ahead and what can he do??? Beeps his horn in frustration cause he couldn't get past!! I laughed so much.
Right up to just before 100 (kms or mph you make up your mind!) he was only a car behind but he was not getting past, full stop.
So all in all, evenly matched up to 100 it would seem anyway.
I was proud of my little oil burner.
