Hey guys, been a while since I've been on here (ooh, redesigned forum, pretty )
What is it with people who want to race you, but don't have the common courtesy of giving an even start, but instead feel the need to jump you?
Case in point, I'm getting onto the highway yesterday, and there's a pretty good sounding red WRX getting on in front of me (no idea what mods). I figured it's been a while since I've gotten to race one, so I want to see if he's game. On the highway, we kind of rev at each other, but can't do much as there's traffic.
Finally, we get a stretch of open road ahead of us. I'm in the far right lane, with him behind me. I get over so he can get next to me so we can get a good start. But no, he decides to go full throttle from behind me as I'm waiting for him to get even for a nice fair start. By the time I realize it, he's flying past me with a 20mph hour head start. No way can I catch up to that.
Now, he seemed pretty quick to begin with, so maybe he still would have beaten me in a fair race, but the other guy cannot consider that a win, since he had basically a head start on me. It's like he didn't have the decency to get up even for a nice, fair race. I run mid 13's in the 1/4 mile currently, so even if he was Stage 2, it may have been close.
Now, I am in no way saying that this is specific to WRX drivers, cause it's not. It's just that I noticed this guy doing this, which irks me. Am I overreacting here, or does this annoy anyone else as well?
