Everybody keeps wanting to race?!?!?

Hey guys, so I drive a bone stock prelude and I love it to death. Although every other day some moron pulls up to me and tries to race. I've had Camaros, civics, and even ghetto corollas(not the ae86) try to race. Even today, a mustang pulled up next to and started reving his engine. Like is this a common thing with the prelude because I really have no intention or will to race these guys on normal streets.

Re: Everybody keeps wanting to race?!?!?

Haha a mustang engaged a street race? Say it isn't so! The Prelude is a somewhat sporty car, so don't be surprised when random knuckleheads try to bait you into a race. I will never engage a street race or rev on someone, but if they engage me (and I'm driving the right car) I won't hesitate to run them.

Ask that same Mustang driver to meet you on a winding road, and then see who has the upper hand hah!

Re: Everybody keeps wanting to race?!?!?

Im usually the one harassing people on the highway! I like to challenge faster cars to see who is the better driver. I once out handled a Mustang in the canyon (I was so stoked). And my Lude is bone stock! My favorite is downshifting from 5th to 4th and letting that vtec kick in yo!

Re: Everybody keeps wanting to race?!?!?

lolololol I've had my luxe maybe a month and a bit now, ad nearly everytime I'm coming home from work I've got pickup trucks and sedans challenging me! While I would never indulge in illegal street racing, the Lude can hold it's own! but I would never partake in that sort of driving... and everyone seems to be a good sport sofar:)

Re: Everybody keeps wanting to race?!?!?

Everybody tells me to dye my gray hair. I ignore them.

Moral of the story; just because somebody says do it does not mean it's a good idea.

They used to challenge me in my 3g car. Pffft! I knew and he knew they'd win. I'd ignore it and if need be turn up the radio to drown out their stupidity.
Now my SH... so far no challenges. Maybe it's the band aids over the dents that show I'll run over his f@#kin' grandma to be there ahead of him... or maybe it's just... 5g cars are faster than a cheetah with his tail on fire...

Ignore 'em!

Haha indeed! I was sitting in the Z06, lined up next to a new Tundra (with 5 teenagers in it) at the track. And the guy rolls his window down and yells over my catless, long tubed 3" exhaust, "Hey man, I think you're gonna beat me". I was speechless haha. He ran a 17.4 at like 70 something mph. Basically, I had time to slow down, make the turn and start my way back and he was just hitting the traps!

I was driving my bro's vette with similar mods last weekend, just cruising at 55mph, when some dude in an Odyssey with his entire fam in the car started revving at me.
I literally "'d", dropped it into 3rd and took off, they later caught up, and we both exchanged 's and 's

Re: Everybody keeps wanting to race?!?!?

Haha same thing happened to me recently, but it was a guy in a big Volvo SUV. He kept trying to keep up with me through the twisties. I wasn't really pushing but would leave him in the turns. He would gun it and catch up on the straights. It was actually a lot of fun haha

Re: Everybody keeps wanting to race?!?!?

I've had a similar experience within the first few weeks of owning my 1997 Prelude SH. It is typically some ****box Civic or Neon, one time a BRZ. I'm on the same exact page OP, not really looking for that kind of attention. Just like the look of the Prelude, and just use it as a daily.

Re: Everybody keeps wanting to race?!?!?

owned my prelude for a solid few months now, still no sign of new challengers. But then again, the po didn't keep up with the rust proofing so it doesn't exactly scream "RACE ME!!".
