Seriously, you gotta be freaking kidding me. Especially the little Honda guys.

I always thought it was just me. I usually wind up passing them eventually but I want to yell at them to come race on my turf.

Flat out race? No....
Try to beat me to merge or something....yeah...it does happen from time to time. Most of the time I don't care. But once in a blue moon, I do allow the 3.6/WA580/3.73 say "not so fast my friend....I got this spot..."

Friend of mine kept bragging about his 505 horsepower integra. Revved it out next to me the other day down a long stretch and his tranny took a crap on him. Sorry for his loss but glad it happened.

I had a vw bug pull up next to me while driving my old Willys wagon and revved his engine like he wanted to race . It was lowered and the rear hood was lifted like maybe he had some great engine.He had no idea that my wagon has a 383 stroker rated @ 550 h/p . It also has cherry bombs dumping right below the doors , also has cut outs . I pushed in the clutch and romped on the gas and I think he thought his car blew up or something . He slammed on his brakes and disappeared behind me, never to be seen again ! It was great , I didn't even have to race him !

Never paid attention to people like that. But every time there's a little 4 banger flying next to me, revving their engine, I let my Pentastar with the Dynomax Off road exhaust shut them up. Damn thing sounds like a Hemi!

Hahahaha! I had a late 90's Yukon GT pull beside me tonight. It had been raining...so the roads were wet and he had the baldest tires I had ever seen. Red light turns green...I pull away from him and he just spun his tires and swerved to the left. My husband and I laughed!!

How'd he come to that number, adding up all the HP claims of bolt-on Pep Boys crap then multiplying it by 2? :rofl:

I never raced anything in my Jeep, but I humiliated some kid in a Civic and his girlfriend with my 3/4 ton work van with ladders on it. I just don't get the appeal of taking a 100 horsepower car and adding 400 pounds of crap to it, thinking its going to go faster.

I see that it's mostly little hondas or cars like that. I always win in first gear lol. They try to race us because we are all they can beat (barely).

I have a heavy greenlight foot and I am impressed with the acceleration of my mostly stock 2013 JK Sport 2DR. :punk:
I also have a VERY heavy green light foot. You should see me in my moms Tahoe with the 5.3l v8, then i like to race people :)

Race Equipment company decals add at least 5 hp per decal.
