Is it just me or has anyone here noticed more potential races now that the roads are crappy.I cruised all last summer and not one race,now with my daily driver Mustangs,Camaro's and modded imports are pullin up beside me once a week or more at the lights.But of course both of you are sitting on ice and the car you would really like to have in those situations is hibernating in the garage.

I get at least one street ricing nimrod trying to race me just about every weekend. Maybe you just need an Integra :tongue:

that's true, When i drive the Van, All of the sudden I get everything from tuned civics, Pick-ups, to saturns full of kids, trying to race me. Light turnes green and their tires screem.
Never happens when i'm in a fast car

I seem to have different luck, I live up on signal hill, about once a week I have some 60-something guy having a mid-life crisis (a little late, but oh well) pull up beside me in a mercedes or a BMW (usually the SUV's) that wants to race. I drive an 86 944, what gives?? My car is completely stock, except the stereo, I don't go challenging people to race or anything like that.

no one ever bothers to "waste gas" on a lowly neon :rofl: :burnout: :rofl:

I've found lots of people in SUV's and Minivans have had lead feet once the cold weather hit.

Christ, I'de leave normally and guys in ther trucks would lurch forward just asking to race...and so I just accellerate to the posted speedlimit. no need to waste fuel on those people.

in my daytona i couldn't get a decent race if my life depended on it, only got to race a lude and an sn95 stang gt, smoked em both. still, in the jetta, EVERYONE tries to race me.

i'm trying something new now, go with a grandpa car, watch everyone try to race you, and hand them there ass.

god bless sleepers :D

i get revved on at least twice a day down here, everyone of these high schoolers want to race my accord, and the bad part is my accord is really slow. It still will walk over these civics and v6 mustangs around here, i just don't want another ticket when i walk off from them
