Hey solrac, me too! its just about everybody being player haters. since i bought my car i have nothing but little honda's, volkswagons even 4x4 trying to catch up to me. I can actually see them in my rear view mirror. And if i'm at a light forget it.....even 4x4's want to run with me. let me tell you that when i'm feeling it... i just let it rip and asta la vista baby!!!
see ya when i se ya.
but be careful out there. proceed with caution

It's you.
I don't get any challenges. Some trash talk from coworkers but that's about it. I raced another Z the other night and had a blast, but we did it mostly to see how the mods on the cars would perform and test each other's driving skills.

People don't race around here. They're all too snooty and don't care about speed. They only care about the status symbol of the car. All Bimmers, and Mercedez, and Audis, and Porsches, and Lexuses (Lexi? LOL)

The only thing that tried to race me was a Crossfire. He actually kept up, but I was taking my time shifting and I accidentally hit the rev limiter. I think it may have been one of those new Crossfires (SVT?)

My last 'tried' opponent was a Supra that I zoomed around as I was merging onto I-25 from County Line rd. It has one of those on ramps that does a 180deg turn where the speed limit is like 20mph, well I was doing double over that easily with no issues and the supra was chugging along and by the looks of how he came up on my rear view mirror after the turn and onto the straight, he didnt like it to much lol. So we got on I-25 and I sped thru traffic getting a jump cause he was getting stuck behind a van and I exited on araphoe where I saw him catching up behind me. He paced me past a few lights revving behind me and stuff, but I didn't bite. I just wanted to piss him off to give that really annoying... you dont know if you would of beat me or not because we never raced kinda guilt trip lol. But I very rarely get revv'ed over here in Colorado, and when I do get rev'ed they have all been much faster cars lol. The last people to rev on me were modded Evo's and STi's. All which beach me as well as a 660whp supra my bud has lol.

Idiots try to get me to race them all the time, last time it was an 80'ish bronco that was like all rusted out and jacked up. I was like uhhhhhhhh mkay mr. mackey what are you doing? I don't think he could have raced the above mentioned fiesta and won. WTF are these ppl thinking? I had some dude in some lame old geo revving his engine (on 3 1/2 cylinders) at me at a stop light, with a cop 2 cars behind him. I mean, c'mon dude, I am drivin here, not trying to play w/ little boys frontin like they are driving the next supercar....bass pumpin, gold chains hanging from the rearview. Yeah i think I will lower myself to your level and race your rustbucket.....NOT!

When I get someone who starts in on me about their car being hot, fast and furious, I wait until they're done and remind them that my Z looks faster parked than their car doing 100mph.
They never have a good comeback.

I haven't had ANYONE try to race me yet. My friend and I did a couple of runs with his G35 Coupe when I first got my Z, but that was planned out. I know how the other guys feel though. I once didn't have a fast car and it always made me happy to see a "real" car in action, whether I got my ass whooped or not. Ricers love seeing how it should be done.

I had this idiot today weaving through traffic trying to catch up with me. It just so happen that when he fianlly caught up we were at a traffic light. The passenger stuck his head out the window and said, my buddy wants to see what those things can do. I just smiled and nodded. When the light turned green he went screaming off the line :headshake: I was just thinking to myself, why bother? :rolleyes:

Yeah, I've done that before ^


I rev a few times, set my launch RPM, and stare at the light, then when it goes green, I just sit there and watch the other guy tear ass off the line. Noob. lol
