As immature and stupid that the FR-S owner was in street racing his car, the OP is displaying the same immaturity and jerk-ishness in his post.

Perhaps you aren't familiar with Open Letters and satirical writing, this is actually fairly well done. If it hurt your feelings then you are the intended recipient of the letter. Now, that is not to say specifically that you are the person in that Red Frs but if he is the person in the story you most relate to you will get "butt hurt" to use a technical term

I'm a dumbass myself. But I don't put stupid shit on my car to attract more attention like shocker stickers. I also don't race things that will shit on me. Everyone wants to mod their cars their way. But people that do it cheap and rice it out ruin our cars.

This is what I see

1. OP states our car is slower than his family sedan

2. Glance at post count, 8 posts

3. Vague reference to OP owning an 86

4. Conclusion; OP obvious troll

5. ???

6. Profit

Well, they ARE cheap cars. The average price for a new car in 2013 was almost $32,000 dollars, so ours are on the lower end of the spectrum.
So in a few years I'll find one that's been ragged out by one of those guys, buy it cheap and make a track car out of it. Maybe just rebuild the motor & suspension, spray flat black primer over the stickers and go to town. LOL

If the red FR-S had had a "Fresh As Fuck" license plate frame, OP would have lost.

Seems like a good plan, although it will be a bummer to see the number of ratted-out FR-S' running around covered in bondo, primer and with a broken fart can.

Sorry, I didn't mean your particular car. I meant the number of junk-box ricers you will have to choose from. Just like the large number of AFU Civic's you see running around.

When did you move from North Carolina? Do you own a red FRS by chance?

Am I one of the few people out there who doesn't feel a need to mod this car? Also, I would never want to race this car against anyone. I am 32. I have nothing to prove to anyone. Plus, this is my first sports car and it cost me quite a bit. Why would I put myself at unnecessary risk?

I do plan to race and all someday, but I will actually go to a professional racing school for that.

At first I did not realize you were trying to race other cars. That's not really where my mind was at the moment. When we wound up side by side at a subsequent light and you revved your engine and dropped into gear I took the bait. I know better. It was bad judgement on my part and I'm not very proud of myself. I'm also sorry and a bit astounded how hard the little volvo hatch accelerated. You had me by a car length at the start - good launch! regrettably from there it was all over... I probably should have let you win but again showed a lapse of judgement. By the hand gesture you offered out your window when you made a right at the next intersection I can tell your ego was bruised.

You are obviously very proud of your ride and have put a lot of yourself into it. In hindsight I realize the giant asian characters filling your tinted rear window were probably "hachi roku". I would lose the "shocker" hand sign sticker though. I'm hoping you realize your stance has your rear tires rub the tops of your wheel-wells (others can hear it oustide your car when you go over bumps)... or it could be the drone from your exhaust drowns it out some.

You do need to realize the FR-S/BRZ are not muscle cars or dragsters and that many family sedans can post 0-60 times that match or beat ours...

Thankfully no one got hurt and traffic was light but it does not excuse our behavior.
Sounds to me like you had you're very first street race against a ricer. Congratulations

However, I stopped street racing about 8 years ago, so
