The only thing we know for 100% sure from OP's story is that he often breaks speed limit while LEOs are around. I still have no clue about his driving skills ... I only...

OK, two things ...

1. I hope you are not "stomping" while at 1,300 rpm. Even though you have all the torque available (in theory) at 1,300-1,500 rpm, it will certainly not snap your neck. I hope...
