"Come Race Me Bro" Encounters

Seems like I've been getting alot of "challenges" on the road since I've bought my BRZ, specifically with Camaro drivers. On 2 separate occasions while I was driving on the highway, I've had a guy in a Camaro zoom past me, slow down to be side by side with my car, rev his engine, and then speed off again. Not sure what it is about these kids in Camaros.

Post some of your encounters you've had!

mustangs, camaros, chargers, big lifted diesel trucks..they just rev and launch at the lights...then again im in west texas so its to be expected.

Its fun to rev back then when the light turns green jump off the line then just slip it into second and watch them tear off while i accelerate normally...not even worth my time.

Another case of the American muscle cars vs imports. This will never change.

This car is still new normally American cars know they have me beat and don't waste the gas other imports normally are the ones that go all rev crazy. I love to race my car but only on the track if they want to prove they are better than me they can prove it on the track.

I've had one Veloster turbo try it, one mustang, and probably 6-7 Nissan 350 or 370z.

When I'm in the 911s I get way more. That car just brings out the testosterone. I almost never respond, but when I see someone like a Scion TC or a Kia crossover revving their engine or screwing around with me on the highway, I just have to show them how stupid it is.

Even here we have just as many people doing it, albeit more imports doing the flyby's.

Haven't had anyone try to race me yet, just a couple of people speeding up from behind to take a look. Can't blame them for trying to race you, these cars look fast even sitting still.
