    05 Acura RL awd - thinks he's faster than me

    There's a guy in my neighborhood that got a new RL (very nice car). He basically chased after me leaving the neighborhood. Then he got right on my rear bumper and when he got a tiny opening in traffic he raced around me (got right in front of me actually). Every chance he got he tried to prove to me he was faster than me. Unfortunately there was way too much traffic and I will not race in traffic. So I had to basically ignore him. I got very frustrated. I would have given anything for a clear stretch of road. I just thought I would share my frustration. Eventually I will get my chance. But for now I will just grin and bare it.

    he'll take you. no offense. sti's are slow.
















    jk. those wont run anything better than a 14.9, if lucky. I have been seeing 15's consitently, i guess its the extra weight from the awd system.

    Sure, they have 300 horse and awd. But that thing must weight at least 400lbs more....

    Invite him to the track for a night and pwn the bejeesus out of him there. The guy is a jackass trying to race in heavy traffic like that.

    Slash his tires


    If that plan dosent happen, when you and him are on a clear road, let him get a carlength on you and blow right by him

    if he is so confident, race him for money. Even if you miss a gear, you will still have enough time to run past him, lol.

    Seriously, put money on it.

    Ha ha ha, I love those people who determine their cars speed by the sticker price. You gotta give em credit for boosting our self-esteem (no pun intended).

    if its by the sticker price, mine was ~31000, that makes it more than the evolution, so i should beat the evo's ass.

    Thats right, since your car cost more its much faster. You should see how fast those escalades are. ..........

    You will destroy him. People in TL's are funny too. I have fun handing them there A$$.
    Acura should have put an 8 cylinder in the RL.

    There are a lot of guys like this im my neighborhood as well. There is one in particular with a new TL who thought he was badass...tried to take me from a stop in the wet. I would have loved to seen his expression, but by the time I merged onto the highway he was just too far back and he never tried to catch up

    I thought the TL ran 0-60 in 6.3 and the quarter around 14.8.
