I had an audi A4 pull up next to me today at a light, modded out, figured they'd try me, since it's almost custom in Vegas for tuners to try every other tuner they see. They roll down their window and it happens to be two beautiful, early 20's ladies just complimenting me on my FR-S. Big ol' grin on my face

Funny, I haven't had anyone rev at me or try to race me, at least to my knowledge. Probably because I usually just cruise and rarely look at who's sitting next to me at a stoplight.

Although I did have a guy at a party last night ask me if I could take his Mustang in a race, I just said "Nope, you'd definitely beat me". And that was that.

Had a Mitsubishi Lancer... wasn't an evo, just a lancer and some other silly looking badge on it. He kept messing with me on the hwy... Traffic was moving about 65 and I ran it up to about 85. I left him a couple times, but that could be because I hit the gas and he was constantly playing catch up... then he weaved in some traffic and I knew then he was dangerous... I slowed down and let him have it... I stayed in my lane and cruised right past him as he was pinned behind a school bus and some other slow ass driving car.

Another, some DUMB F*cking A**hole in a Subaru outback... he and his old lady were gauking at my car... then he sped up and slowed down and sped up and slowed down... I punched it... pulled off he was trying to catch up but I was steady gaining ground, so I let off and he cut in front of me and went to the right of me and the two started bouncing in their car dancing and slowing down... I have no clue... I just moved over to the far outside and cruised by them... stupid shit!

Good talk. I've been saying since I joined that the one thing this place was missing was a nice helping of condescension.

Never said those 2 encounters were the only ones. I've only listed the 2 Camaros because they were by far the lamest ones I've experienced. I've only had the car for a month

What people do here is drop to about 10kph under the speed limit when they notice you behind and then floor it when you overtake. It doesn't seem to matter what they're driving. I always slip it into 4th now, to get past quickly because when they do that it can change the safe pass into dangerous.
I had a bad one the other day. 90kph limit with the 2 lanes becoming one further ahead.
Guy in front doing 84kph, passed in 6th[big mistake] at 95kph and ended up having to drive outside the single lane because he had sped up to 110kph which was what I was reading when I slipped in front finally.

I don't know why people complain about the power, it's got more squirt than something like a Harley and sounds much better in the process.

If someone fucks with me, I will fuck them back.

Fucking with me is:
Unnecessarly cutting me off
Tailing the fuck out of me
Honking
Verbal taunting
Windshield spray while driving in front of me
Flashing lights

Luckily these things don't occur much in my city.

What kinda Camaros are we talking here, IROC-Z's?


Not surprised a Jersey Shore reference would come up. I live in North Jersey so no no Guidos here. I also grew up on the Jersey Shore, and no no Guidos there either.

That's not a good rule because there are nut cases out there for whom your reaction would be their wet dream and you would be the entertainment they were looking for.

With the car above I braked down to 80kph in front of them and they dropped way back. In the 80kph limit I did 70kph and they were pissed. Luckily at the roundabout I went left and they went straight on but it could easily have ended badly with both of us being pissed off and keeping it going.
