Is that just in my head or is it something with coasting allowing it?
Its all in your

kinda like someone putting on a cape and pretending to fly like Superman...

You're having some type of plocebo effect and nothing else unless your engine is running rich to begin with all you revving the poop out of it is just clearing out some extra fuel for a moment and allowing you to feel a bit more gitty-up.
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
