How often do people try to run you & GT or V6??

I swear I'm in the middle of ricer central and I've had my GT for 4 glorious months, but NOBODY wants a piece of this thing... not even once! Hell, I even go out looking for trouble sometimes ;) I used to get bugged in my contour all the time, I even get bugged driving my gf's cavalier. Not that I advocate street racing of course, but like 11pm empty road with no intersections/driveways for over a mile, I'd give it a go.

The reason I ask about GT/V6 is that a guy at the office gets revv'd at all the time and he has a 6. The 6 is a pretty tough car and would take a lot of stuff, but are people afraid of the GT or something??

Never. I used to go out looking to see how I would fare. I never get challenged so I quit cruising trying to find a race. Gotta save gas now anyway:(.

Believe it or not I got challenged today at a red light by, get this, a Scion Xb! Totally riced out including the stupidest looking coffee can tail pipe I have ever seen. When the light turned green he punched it (if that's even possible in a Scion). I wasn't going to play his game and just accelerated at normal velocity. Bet he told all his ricer buds he beat an 05 GT. :wavey

I get it alot. Some people just want to see what it can do, and they know they don't have a chance. But when someone does has a fixed up car, then I try not to race them just to make them mad. I had one guy give me the finger as he took the off ramp. LOL

Once I get my Saleen S/C :tongue , then I'll show them what I have :sterb: . I'm not into street racing either, just a short thing just to let them know what I have.
When I do get my S/C, they can meet me at the race track here in San Diego at "Race Legal". :happyhapp

Occasionally people antagonize me with my car. Usually just revving the engine calms them down (got the FRPP exhaust :) )

They you get the ones who tailgate you on the highway.... downshift, and POOF! where dey go?

Oh, I've got to respond to this one, since I had an incident tonight. There's the last stoplight on a 2-lane highway that has a through left lane, and the right lane eventually has to merge. I was the second car in the right lane, saw an opening to get in the left and did it, signaled and everything. The Honda 4-door Accord in front of me saw what I was doing and tried to beat me. Please, give me a break. I got where I needed, then he flipped on the headlights at me, as if to tell me what, my V8 beat his 4? About the only challenges I get are those unworthy - a Celica, an Acura something or other, and that's about it. Maybe because I'm a girl, I dunno. I've raced one fellow GT-owner and it was all friendly. We waved and smiled. It was all good.

Today as a matter of fact, first time in looong time.

I was in a big windey loop from one arterial to another and I see this Honda pushing hard in my rearview, even in stock suspension I kept him at bay, when I turned onto arterial basically a hairpin, I goosed it in 2nd and power slid onto arterial. Nobody was around at mid day.
He comes on hard and slams it and I can hear a turbo I assume. I gave it redline 2nd, 3rd, and stayed in front for a long time although, he wasn't getting blown away, he was not going to pass me either.
I think he would have got me if I didn't have my mods.

I finally had to brake in 4th cuz a car was in my lane, was fun.

My area I rarely ever get any challenge.

I'd like to start by saying that I get challenged quite abit but I don't waste my time and gas with the little guys. I save my energy for the big dogs. You all know who I am refering to. As a matter of fact, I had one of those new Nissan Maximas tear off the line with me today. I had my son in the car so I let him enjoy the moment. Anyway, Msgt, I am here in the SD area working out of North Island. I am not familiar with Race Legal. Can you give me some specifics like price, dates, times, location, etc? Thanks.

They sell the 3M Vinyl stripes for Mustangs, and other cars. Got mine just have not had the time to install them. Something with my wife and a baby due next week. Dunno, think that her priorities are a bit messed up. :winks

That is the 1/8th mile they set up at Qualcomm.

I had a black mustang … not sure what model it was. All dressed up w/ body kit and shiny wheels and popped in his clutch and reved it up. It was s/c'd or whatever. Freakin' thing hurt my eardrums. This dude was on the other side of the road in traffic. Usual Bazilian ricer sh%t-boxes w/ cans on them reving up. I've given thumbs up to 20 V6'S and half that many V'8's…not one back! Maybe all had NY plates on'em.

I think it depends on how you drive... if you're hotshotting, high revs, having fun, someone will ctach on and make it a race... if you're coasting in the right most lanes, nothing...

I HATE waiving at fellow 05's and not even an reaction... they are Ford owners, not Stangers in my book!

Sorry, I have to disagree with you there. At least for me, I could be driving along do 70 or 80mph and if I just pass someone they take it as a race. Just like tonight (1 Sept 05) some guy in a Honda (I think) would just stay a little ahead of me. I knew he wanted to race, but I didn't give him the satisfaction of it. I could have gun it and kept him from getting in front of me when traffic in has lane was going slow. But at the same time I have my 17yr with me and I don't want him to pick up my bad driving habits.

Kj_cici your still the man. :worship :worship :worship :worship :worship :worship :worship :worship

Thanks alot. I had a feeling it was Qualcomm but I wasn't sure.
Looks like the next race legal is the Sept 9th. Are you planning to go? I just might go my self, maybe we can meet up with each other. My friend Dow will more likely be there, last time he won two trophys. If you plan to go I'll PM my cell # to you.

:) Ed

Ya gotta love those tards that drive xBs... with the exception of the Honda Element those shoebox xBs are the UGLIEST G**D*** car on the road today. Those POS's look exactly like an oversized toaster.

They are even fuglier when some ricer punk loads it up with a "yo-yo fo shizzle body kit, dawg" and a fart pipe and thinks he even has a snowball's chance in hell! Time to laugh at the loser and ask him to go fart away and try to race someone else.

an early 70's HUGE Station wagon challenged me

It was hilarious. I never got the exact model...some GM thing.

I was cruising home after work doing 35 in a 35 zone, as I edge up to him, I notice serious drag radials on the rear and guages mounted on top of the dash. :rolleyes:

I somehow got the feeling he wanted to go...I was right. OMG...he GUNS it, it roars and smokes both rear tires - I'm stunned - HUH?!?! :eyebulge: What was THAT!? Thank God nobody was in front of me 'cuz I'd have hit whatever got in my way. :dunce: That was the funniest thing I've seen on the road in years...LMFAO

As I pull up to him later, I give him a hook-up sign and he laughes and gives me the good nod...:wavey ...good sense of humor...gotta have it driving that monster.....young bald guy...probably works in a Pep Boys....funny stuff. That beast must'a had 600+ HP and probably runs 9s....with big 'nuf rubber...:worship
