I would make a couple simple suggestions:
1) Change nothing with your setup
2) When you first take off I'm sure you will probably pull ahead
3) As the speeds increase and the import begins to pull next to you, simply look over and grin and then cut your steering wheel in the direction of the import.
4) This will only do minor damage to your heavy metal ride while at the same time doing away with your import friend into the weeds
5) And I bet you can do this before you hit 90
