people around me stare at the car, tell me its beautiful, or jump when they hear the exhaust, never does anyone want to race. Occasionally I get someone in a 98 altima, civic, or other ricer. They don't really want to race, they take off because they want to see me blow by them and hear the exhaust. I don't feed into them though lol

how old are you. I get challenged all the damn time. I'm already scheduled to race somebody on Friday. The fat tub of lard knows nothing about cars and thinks his 08 GT/CS is the fastest thingon the planet.

I go out looking for races and cant find any takers either. Since I have added headers and SLP's I cant really conceal that my car is indeed modded. I go to the local drag on the weekends and when there is heavy traffic I just leave it in second :D

Me too. My wife and I were going out to get some seafood the other night and some Integra pulled up beside me at a redlight. He was decked out in the full neon package and everything. My wife jokingly pointed out that he was gonna blow my doors off when the light turned green and I told her "Yeah, right, I don't think he's that stupid" (keep in mind that my car literally rocks at idle from the cams). Anyway, when the light turned green, we both just pulled off normally, and right when I heard his turbo spool just a little, he kicked the **** outta that car. Well, needless to say, he got ass-raped. However, the funny part was at the next redlight. Some older guy and his old-lady (I'm guessing) pulled up beside us in a minivan. He rolled down the window and said, "I knew that kid was gonna try you. Looks like he just didn't have it under the hood". Fun times.........

you all that never get rivals should try going to a military town. there are a ton of young kids that have no real bills and nothing to spend their money on except for their cars. so there almost always ends up being some pretty fast street cars. there are also twice as many ricers here because of the same fact. mustangs, gto's, f-body's, sti's, evo's.....they are all a dime a dozen here and they are all modded

You better watch them trucks with the LS? motors, they had 5 at the track last night and the slowest was 13.7 and the fastest was 12.3. I never get anyone to race me for some reason after a car show everybody is like "Man that thing is supecharged, I can't do anything with that." They do have a guy that lives about 45 minutes away with a Whipple on an 06 GT that was calling out all my friends. He lost to a Lightning and an 03 Cobra and then started talking **** to me because everyone was saying I had a Kenne Bell and my car was fast. But after the 3rd. person telling him don't make a fool of himself he finally left and went home. Funny thing is he traveled from Cut Off which is 45 minutes to come race me because his friend told him I had the fastest car in town.(Which I don't and never said I did) So he called me out when I get the car back because and I quote "Them Kenne Bell's ain't got **** on a Whipple." yet he was beat by 2 Eatons.

Hey BJ was it a black Mustang? They have one in Larose that thinks his car is the fastest over here.
I had to show him one night that it wasn't.

I've been challenged several times, I've posted about my kill of a Charger and had the pleasure of killing a old Chevy pickup last week. He called me out! I also got smoked by a vette about a 3 weeks ago, got a little over zealous and it was painful.

I tend to drive a little aggressive and have stuck my grill in many a rear view to see who bites. It seems like I get more challenges from Chargers and older Stangs. I think they see a 40 year old guy and think it's a great time to impress some young female passenger. Normally doesn't end well for them. The upside of being 39 and in the middle of a mid life crisis is that I can afford the ticket and only think about the kill and not about the consequences.

I live in a rural area outside OKC and I thinking racing is still a way of life for many of the locals.

I seen a 08 Shelby GT last night run 13.3 @ 106. What all is on those cars from the factory? It was as he drove it off the lot and no further mods. I was quite surprised when he beat my Lightning and I went 13.4 @ 108. He had me by a car the whole way past the 60'
