In my car, going down a hill with a steady grade, I can shift into neutral and it feels like i tapped the gas. On one car, as soon as I shift into neutral it goes from 50 to 55, and I start gaining on the cars ahead of me.

I was actually about 5-10 car lengths behind a ranger the other day when I shifted into neutral and I had to use the brakes just before the bottom of the hill because I was gaining on him so fast... he never used the brakes once.
