    Best similar experiences were in a POS late 80's Dodge Daytona my wife had during our freshman year. That pile of crap had some mysterious idling problems where it would often rev up to about 4k at stop lights so naturally everyone thought she was trying to race. Sometimes it would rev so bad it was hard not to lay scratch on the pavement with those hubcapped all season radials. Quite entertaining that people wanted to race her because she couldn't afford to get her car fixed.

    I had 2 kids in a 1989 or so 240sx try to race me one afternoon. It was rusted and spray painted flat black and when it accelerated it sacked out the rear struts I find some people amusing so I just had to laugh.

    Lol sweet, we used to do the same in my buddies 1989 DR Van but we never beat anyone because it was auto, had around 250k miles and had a 4 cylinder but I must say the custom racing stripes added some aerodynamics!

    I dont race people on open roads, the only time i was tempted and actually went ahead with it was when i pulled next to a blue viper gts with "hennessey" on the license plate so I could see and obvious hear it had some power and we had a good little run to 90mph, then i chickened out because I am NOT getting a wreckless driving speeding ticket. he musta kept going to 150 easyily.....Dumbass. I felt pretty good because all I had on my car was a turbo back, intake and a tune

    I lost against another Audi today in my A4, it wasn't a true race but we definately tried to out accelerate each other. Looked like a newer A4 or A6. I love the road at 4 am, there's noone around.

    The only people that try to race me are 16 year old kids in STI's that see my wingless debadged stock exhaust bugeye as a easy target, and soon find out that isn't the case. I always give them the friendly subaru wave and then they rev me.

    I live by a high school, so I get a bunch of hondas with fart-cans and V6 Mustangs. It's sad. Most the time when they are reving i just pay no attention - waist of fuel.

    this is a buddies story I just have to share.

    My buddy was driving home from work on a highway in his stock 06 wrx hatch. He was just cruisin mindin his own business when a nice 200? vette pulled up next to him and was tryin to get him to race. The vette did 2 little pulls to show of their power then would slow down to even up with him. He knew he didn't have a chance and didnt even try to race. He basically just keep cruisin for a while until the vette just took off like a bat outa hell and he lost sight of the vette. A couple miles down the road he sees the vette pulled over on the side of the road. We still laugh about it today!

    my Impala had an unsmogged smallblock 350, so a lot of times I actually beat the nice foreign car to the next stoplight..
    This is kind of what I was thinking. Though alot of them believe as long as they have that honda power, they can beat the world.
    One day I'll have a truly awesome sig
