    WHy is it that my car in any given race is slower than those who get ahead of me? Even when I'm ahead on a straight away I still get passed like I'm sitting still.
    I mean, first I get run over at the start then I can never catch up. Are their skills that good?
    I'm lvl 18 and I don't think think my skills are that bad.
    Is there something I'm missing? Some sort of trick I don't know about?
    Also...what do I do about those morons that think skillful driving means ramming players off the track?

    Is called drafting: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drafting_(aerodynamics)

    When a car is closely behind yours, it gets reduced air drag, because you are cutting the air in front for him. So then he can pull his car to the side and overtake you because he built up more longitudinal speed. Even if the two cars are exactly the same and their top speed is exactly the same, using the drafting technique can give higher top speed.
