stupid straight line racers. Let them go on corners and see who will win that race. 99% of the time; win = BRZ/FR-S. People forget that a legit race also involves cornering, sheesh.

I just tap the gas then let them fly by. Easy way to get rid of the idiots.

During my vacation, I had a guy on a crotch rocket pull up alongside me on the highway (after following me for two miles) and point first to my car, then to his bike. I gave him a thumbs-up because at the time I didn't realize he was signaling for a race.
In heavy traffic. Against a motorcycle.

Another time I went to pass a newish Camaro on a clear straight in the backwoods of Maine. As soon as I came even with his rear bumper, he started matching me rev for rev, until I ran out of road. He was a jerk, but I started cracking up because I'd obviously thrown down the gauntlet or something! Fool then did 10 under the speed limit.

I found another road around him, beat him to the end of it, and honked as I drove past him in the opposite direction

I think you need to replace the Prius tires before you can claim that. 0.91 g in corners is nothing to bragg about. But with some sticky rubber and good coilovers you will be tough to follow on a twisty road.

So far this has only happened once. I was minding my own business on a straight stretch of Indiana State highway when I noticed a Chevy Trailblazer SS pulling up to my left and he began jumping on and off the gas.

Even dropped it down a gear! I just ignored him and after a while he punched it and roared off.

At a stoplight I'll give a little rev, then when the light turns green I just let them race off...on the road I just ignore them...
