Haha. There's lots of guys like this guy. I typically try to go slow so I catch a light, in hopes ssomeone stops next to me. Or... Get next to someone and hope they are smart enough to slow down so we either catch a light or get an open, no traffic road, then go at it.

All street racing is inconsiderate, you can't try to justify one over the either. Both are bad.

My latest kill was a brand new Toyota 4runner with paper plates. I was on the on ramp merging into the right lane following the 4runner. I hit the gas, signal, and proceed to move into the second from the right lane. He cuts me off after I was already fully in the lane. Of course, I'm furious, so I merge into the lane 3rd from the right, give him a honk, gun it and pass him. This asshole comes tearing after me cuts me off and proceeds to block me from changing lanes and passing him. I move left, he goes left, I go right, he goes right and this is happening at triple digits. I'm fucking pissed by now, we come up on a car in the lane I can see ahead. I decide to fake a lane change, go left first then right and gun it. I pass him and I'm in front until my exit. Flicked him the bird out the window and moved on with my day. Feels good

Thanks man. Yeah I guess it started out as road rage, then turned into a race on the highway.

I don't have videos but I figured I'd share with anyone to spark their curiosity about how your car might stack up. There was a variety of friendly races as well as passive aggressive drivers who couldn't handle losing. I'm not built with that cutthroat competitive nature, I was just having a blast I also added a section to give you an idea of the nature of these drivers of these manufacturers post race. Most races started at 40mph and ended about 100mph. All of these were roll races on 3 honks.

When I was Stock:

Wins:

Mk6 GTI - Stage I - (1-2 Car lengths) / Exchanged Instagram
9th Gen Honda SI Stock - (3-4 Car lengths) / Pulled away
Volvo S60 2.0T Stock - (3-4 Car lengths) / Pulled away
MK7 GTI - Muffler Delete Only / Manual (1 Car length) / Chatted with him a bit - I'm DSG btw


Losses:

Genesis Coupe 2.0T - Tuned (1/2 car length) / Gave me the middle finger
F30 335i - Stock (3-4 car lengths) / Thumbs up


When I was APR Stage I (No bolt ons) :

Wins:

Same Genesis 2.0T I lost to stock - (4-5 car lengths) / Pulled away
Audi A3 Stock - (9-10 car lengths)/ Got out of his car aggressively after losing
9th Gen Honda SI Mods unknown - (4-5 car lengths) / Pulled away
9th Gen Honda SI Mods unknown - (6-7 car lengths) / Nothing happened
10th Gen Honda SI Sounded stock - (4-5 car lengths) / Fly by and flashed hazards after losing
Infiniti G37 Exhaust - (3-4 car lengths) / Aggressively cut me off after losing
Focus ST Muffler Delete only - (5-6 car lengths) / Chatted with him a bit
2015 Subaru STI Widebody + Exhaust - (3-4 car lengths) / Nothing happened
2015 Subaru WRX Loud Exhaust - (Car let off immediately as I pulled on him) but it could have been embarrassing / Exited on traffic light prematurely
MK7 GTI Stock - (4-5 car lengths) / Massive tool
MK7 GTI JB1 plus bolt ons - (3-4 car lengths) / Chatted with him a bit
MK7 GOLF R Exhaust Mods unknown - (1 car length) / Chatted with him a bit
Mustang Ecoboost Sounded stock - (3-4 car lengths) / Aggressively cut me off
Mustang V6 Exhaust - (5-6 car lengths) / Rode my bumper as I hit the cruise control.
350Z DE Exhaust Mods unknown (4-5 car lengths) / Ricer fly after losing
Audi A4 APR Stage I - (2-3 car lengths) / Massive tool. Words can't describe.
BMW F30 328i stock (5-6 car lengths) / Nothing happened
BMW 428i stock (5-6 car lengths)/ Rode my bumper after losing
Same Volvo S60 I beat stock, now it was tuned (3-4 car lengths)/ Pulled away


Losses:

MK7 GTI Mods unknown - (2-3 car lengths) Thumbs up
Subaru WRX STI Mods unknown (9-10 car lengths) Stupid fast. Felt like I was standing still. Flashed hazards at me. / I did a fly by thumbs up IDC
Genesis Coupe 3.8 Loud Exhaust Mods unknown - (1/2 car length) was pulling on him towards the end / Pulled away


I'm currently APR Stage II with absolutely no interest in racing anymore or looking to gain more power. It was an absolute blast to collect all these kills. Keep in mind, I didn't lose as much because I wasn't trying to race cars in superior categories. All these cars are generally in the similar price/power range. I'm aware that I would lose a lot more had I raced different cars. Just wanted to share and I had fun making this post reliving those races

Thanks for reading.
There are lots of people with attitude when they lose. I have only had 2 or 3 people give thumbs up or talk after I beat them. Mostly attitude, flybys, and turn offs after. Had a few that got real aggressive driving after. I am just having fun and don't usually initiate a race. Mostly pursued by the other guy to race and when they lose they get upset. lol Strange. My nephew has a Focus ST and he gets hounded for races all the time and he said most are friendly and want to talk win or lose. I guess its just not cool to get walked by a VW Wagon. lol

Took down a G37 with an exhaust the other day. Had my windows down and sunroof open, so I complimented him on his exhaust at the stoplight. We rolled off and I didn't think anything was going to happen, so I shifted into 2nd early and fell back to his bumper. Then he punched it so I said wth and punched it too. By the time I'm done spinning I'm a car back, but in a few seconds I'm caught up and pulling on by him. Shut it down by 80 a car and a half in front. We both give the thumbs up and go our separate ways. Cool starry bra.
