Does anyone else have this problem too

I just bought a 1998 gt the other day and its the first mustang i have ever owned. Always wanted one and finally found a a pretty good deal in this one. But anyways is it just me or does every ricer with a "fartcan" think they have something? I have already had 6 of these things rev at me or try to race me within the week that ive had the car. I can almost bet that my gfs wiener dogs farts have more horsepower and torque than these things have. Is it just where im from or are there idiots with so called "big scary v-tecs" everywhere? If so i may be to scared to drive the stang anywhere anymore. NOT:nogrinner

Na your not the only one. It happens to me all the time. I never try to provoke anything they always start it. They are always doing their gay ass fly byes that just sound horrible with their massive fart cannon. And trust me it will happen more and more if you mod your exhaust and make your stang sound louder or if you already have it loud then thats why your getting these ricers trying to race you or fly real fast by you.

You're not the only one. Once you're in a 'Stang, you're a target for every ricer trying to prove something.

I gotta say, though, some of the ricers around here actually put up a fight, and I'm in an '04 GT. :/

The car has true duals with no cats and some kind of off brand mufflers so its not to quite.Other than that its stock as far as know, for now anyways. I just think its funny those guys slap on one of those annoying mufflers and think it make it a race car. there are a couple of those vics running around here to and its sad that the s10 i had a couple years ago spanked one and it had a stock 4.3L. im sure there are a select few ricers out there that have their stuff together and are pretty quick but the "fast" ones around here only run in the mid 11s at the 1/8 mile dragstrip down the road.

You'll get every clown in a ricer or a gay yellow Cobalt revving at you and driving like a jackass. Then there are (unfortunately) some retard Mustang owners who think they have to prove something.
Also (laughable) there are the midlife crisis balding wierdos that mess with you in their Miatas, and the teenagers driving their mom's mini-van or PT Cruisers that try to race too. It's retarded.

YES it happens to all of us. Just last light on my way home from work a ricer in a scion tc with exhaust rims lowered a blue headlight and a red headlight did a fly by on me. I was getting on the high way and there he was again. He stepped on it as he turned onto the highway with his FWD, I wasn't going to go at it but he was challenging haha so I smashed it after I got straight and gave him a two car head start. Sadly it took me till 100 to catch him than I let off. Must have been the 176hp later year version. Damn rice!

That makes them madder than beating them at a race.

ive seen a bone stock 95 honda civic hatchback 5 speed go down the 1/4 in a 14.9, its a 128hp 1.6l vtec engine. from what i know the 98 gt does a high 14 to a low 15 1/4 mile stock, correct me if im wrong. just trying to say, dont under estimate ricers, just cause it sounds like a weed eater doesnt mean it runs like one.

I don't have that problem with imports much anymore, just the occasional EVO or STi. I guess when you're always on big drag radials and skinnies, the lower level ricers get the hint.

In the past yes but zero anything in my Cobra. Not even from other Mustangs or Camaro's or such. While driving the Lightning, I had a Mustang GT, S197, get on it a little beside me and a Dodge ram but i didn't try. Needed a tune anyways. Back when i was stationed at Tyndall, talk about everything on the street wanting to try my 95 Mustang GT.
