That doesn’t make sense, if you start in 2nd and I’m in 1st I’m going to pull so far ahead of you that there is no way you are going to catch up to me unless I’m in a Accord, especially when a car is faster than you, how are you going to catch him.

You are out of your power band and accelerate your going to get left behind.
The other car in the power band accelerates, and puts 4 or more car lengths on you, how are you going to make that up,
just because the car has longer gears or a higher redline, makes a difference??
I don't get it.
