I've had my car for less than a week and everyone's already trying to race me. Two times in the past two days I had to lay the smackdown.
Comng out of the Sube dealership yesterday (had to get my window in track) I passed a lowered-out that had this heavy-ass spoiler, shiny new chrome rims, a thick, carbon coated exaust, mad decals. as approaching, dodging in and out of cars so he could meet me at the light. His car was clearly all show. He reved his engine to signal his wish to race. We both got our rpms up. I brake torqued my car (automatic ya know) at about 3000 rpm, light turned green and put about 6 cars between us by the time I was at 80 mph. He did his fly-by thing, he obviously had no turbo.
Today a styled up Eclipse wanted the same. We met at a light. This time I did not launch and just put my foot to the floor when the light tuned green. This guy had modified exaust and a turbo (heard his loud blow-out valve). Put a cars length between him.
What gives? Everytime someone sees a WRX they try to step up.
