Cars that try to step up by doing dumb crap and that wouldn't stand a chance.

Does anyone ever encounter opposing cars that don't stand a chance that try and instigate you into racing? I want to make this clear that this is not focusing on street racing, but rather the dumb crap other cars (esp those that wouldn't stand a chance) on the road try to do to instigate you into a race. I was driving last night and some Ford Escape was tailing me and tried to double line me. When I ed him off enough he tried to follow me through the backstreets of my town. Last week some mustang was tailing me for a while in rush hour traffic and acting like his car could take mine by going in the next lane and speeding up to the car in front of him and braking several times. Anyone else encounter stupid people like this?

not usually but it has happened.

However, if i am driving and i see another wrx going the opposite way i always wave, and usually i get a wave back. Now if i see another wrx going the same way as me i almost always speed up to catch him or slow down to let him catch up, do a few WOT pulls or just play chase for a lil bit. Im the one to start it most times....but i wouldnt call it street racing by any means

every day, you just have to be the bigger man and not give in to it. Its always seems to be the mustang guys for me too.

Very true. Oh I know it happens all the time, I'm more curious as to some stories some of you may have. Btw I think Nissan Altima/Maxima drivers are by far the worst at doing this.

For real, some people just seem to never grow up. They watch way too many fast and furious re-runs. I always get big loud diesel trucks that try to race me. I just laugh. Im too old for that youngin' stuff. haha.

rollin on 17's now and they're dirty

Have it all the time. Not as much with the stock sti spoiler, had more with the wrx wing. Haven't had hardly any since I went wingless.

Had a old civic pull up next to me while I was driving home with cruise control set at 70mph. He would punch it then left off and did that 6 times in a row. Finally I gave in and held down the speed up position on the cruise lever. Heard his car get loud, alot of black smoke and I was pulling away on cruise control.

Even on my ride home just now, some S4 decides to pull on the highway, catch up to me and blow by me cause I was just cruising, and then turn off the exit 200ft later. I almost feel flattered that they need to prove themselves against a wrx but like, really?

yea that is pretty dumb if you ask me. Always check the rear view. Anybody encounter cars behind them highbeaming them to move over? Usually if this happens to me I pull up next to a car in the other lane and just trap the car behind us. I hate people highbeaming me as if they own the road.

Don't hate anybody. Road rage is lethal. Just think that the guy flashing his high beams at you is late for his daughter's wedding and he's packing a loaded 12 gauge in the passenger seat. Isn't it easier to just get out of the way instead of pissing him off? Who knows, could be true. It's not your job to punish other drivers.
