I usually don't even look at other people trying to race me. But once an old BMW Z1 wanted to race, I looked just to check out the rare car. It only makes like 160 at the crank so I thought it was hilarious. Also since I put my Mugen hardtop, it happens like five times a day, and I drive about 10 miles a day. Racing is for a track not the public streets.

I typically don't have much of an issue with it, or maybe I just don't pay attention, however last night a sport bike (unsure which one) rolled up on me looking for a race. I don't know why he'd bother, the S2000 would get left behind like it was standing still.

I avoid street racing. If i wanted a stop light warrior, I wouldn't be in an S2000.

A CR-Z was tailgating me this morning on a 2-lane road. I don't think a dime could have fit between his bumper and mine. I was trapped w/ a semi in front and a semi on my right.

I decided to wash my windshield, indirectly washing the CR-Z's as well. He backed off.

The ones that anoy me are the ricer wannabees. Usually young, in some clapped out pos with a fart can...so of course it must be fast, and they want to prove it on the streets. Even if it is a well built up car, it just is not worth it to me to run them on the streets.

The S2k ain't the fastest game in town, and thats fine. The S2k is the best game in town for a sporting run on the twisty roads, or a HPDE.

I've found if I just slow down some, they get bored and go looking for someone else to play with.

Rednecks and pickup truck drivers are the worst. They all seem to feel obligated to show me how fast there lifted trucks are. I just let them take off from the light looking like an idiot while i take my sweet time.

hmm just tonight i had a truck feel the need to floor it up to the speed limit next to me. i get a lot of civics and random cars ride my ass and try to get me to do something. best one to date is this crv that i see at least once a week. has an exhaust and intake and hommie drives it like a race car. i ignore them for the most part. unless they go into a turn in front of me.

Yeah I get it all the time from random people.

But people flip me off or call me a fag. These are people I don't even know. Maybe it's the color or huge spolier. It's kind of annoying.
