about the only place I get any level of "come race me bro" is in front of Z1 Motorsports on my afternoon commute. But, if I'm honest, that's just the guys there leaving work and honing around with each other. I'm just in the traffic with them....

Pretty sure that this accounts for about 95% of the "dude wanted to race me" stories on here. Many of them that is just how they drive all the time and they probably don't even notice the car they are supposedly challenging.

I get someone beside me, usually a charger,mustang, or camaro, do something totally stupid trying to prove their car is fast, about 80% of the time I drive the Lotus. I ignore tgem, then they usually take of, dangerously weaving in traffic to again show me their car is fast. It's one reason a lot of lotus owners sell their cars. You get a lot of bad attention

There is definitely a sense of "race me bro" with these cars.

If I take the wife's Impreza people are always sleeping at traffic lights, or not paying attention.

In the 86 cars are always trying to out accelerate me from a stop or they pace me and speed up when I'm cruising around.
She brought it up more recently after I told her how people do that stuff around me constantly.

Looking pretty fresh if you ask me. I didnít think neons were even in junkyards anymore, those things are more rare than huracans near me.

I want to add that I had my first autocross day at Limerock Park this past weekend and I was able to feel out the limits of my car and grip. I now drive a little more "spirited" on the road but I don't go nearly close to the limits I had at the track. Super fun experience and definitely recommend for everyone to try at least once.

Street Racing is a different story and is definitely more dangerous. I personally don't like challenging high-ego drivers.

this past weekend, had the most most blatant run-in with a fiesta ST. driving home calmly, and through no effort/fault of my own, traffic shuffled and i ended up behind the guy. no big deal, had another 15 miles to go, no reason to change lanes. i just followed at a reasonable distance, same as every other car i followed up to that point. then he starts slowing down. traffic starts going around. finally he's going about 20mph under typical traffic, and close to 2 dozen cars had gone around him at this point, so i calmly shift lanes, never even downshift. he was apparently waiting for this opportunity to show me his pop tune. in full traffic with no more than 3 car lengths in front of him, he starts lunging past me, dropping back, and lunging forward again. normally, this would be perceived as a street racing invitation, but it was a 2 lane highway with nearly full weekend traffic. those 3 car lengths were as far as he could get...
