    Idiots lately

    I've had fairly good luck avoiding street racers since I bought the WRX. In black, with no wing, it's pretty stealthy.
    Lately I've had way too many idiots in silly cars attempting to race me.
    Yesterday morning on the BQE some kid in a dark tinted, fart canned, early 90s honda accord wagon with misty purple fog lights demonstrated his racing prowess by tailgaiting and attempting to follow me whever I went. Every time he had an open space, he floored the gas and made lots of noise.
    He was quite thrilled with himself until the road opened and I put who the hell knows how many car lengths on him. What can that car run? 19s? Thereafter we played cat and mouse. He would pass me, weaving through lanes and tailgaiting everyone in his way. Nearly rear ended three cars. Then I would pass him at my constant speed of 65 with a big smile for him.
    I'm getting tired of them, though. I can't speed anywhere without some moron viewing it as an invitation to race.

    Jeep Cherokees have more power than a Honda Accord Wagon

    I know, what the hell? I always have kids in WRX's trying to race me

    People take pride in their cars, and usually want to see how they'll do against other "performance" cars. Either ignore the idiots like that guy, or just keep smoking them like I do.

    The Jeep 5.9L was pretty fast for a SUV went like 6.8 0-60 had tons of low down torque. If you didnt launch it right it could beat you to 60 but its 1/4 mile time is probably in the high-mid 15's. My friend had one and me and another friend were riding in it, after we told him his SUV was a piece of junk and couldnt pull axis spins on the dirt he was determined to prove it to us but instead he made the jeep do cart-wheels in the air and land on its roof. He was a real IDIOT.

    I hear ya. I have had my car 7 days (no wing) and have had attempts from a chrysler newyorker and s10 blazer? At first you want to show these morons but then you realize its not worth the gas $$$$$$$.


    I probably could have took them in 'break in mode'!

    I used to live in Janesville, WI. There's a Chevy plant in town and every kid with a Cavalier is looking to race 24/7. Here's a walk down memory lane; my very first idiot kill.
