Thank you Mr. Speed Racer Off The Line

Thanks guy, whoever you are. It may even be some of you here. Please...I beg of you, explain to me your logic and what goes through your mind when you do it? Maybe you just enjoy a scenic view? Why do you gun it off the line at a light to get ahead of myself or others at the most blazing of all speeds in your Geo or Neon (usually, and no offense meant to drivers), only to get ahead of the pack and pull some sort of Rossi victory celebration by slowing down to sometimes half of the motherf**king speed limit?

You may ask...why would I let you get in front of me? Well there are 2 reasons for this. One is that I never expect such a launch from the car...and the other is that when I hear that engine screaming as if it wants to break out of that car and scream "I am engine...hear me blow something up internally"...that sound is so strange to hear that I can't help but stare in hopes that somethings gonna start smoking.

So please..tell me...no, tell all of us who are actually trying to get to work as to why you scream ahead of the pack at pace and then proceed to ride 30 in a 45? Is it to get your plastic spinners up to speed? Perhaps you just went through a carwash and you're using my sometimes used method of drying the car? Or even more so, maybe you really do think that the "DODGE POWER" sticker with a picture of Tweety Bird looking all badass below it, really does add more ponies to your ride? I salute you Mr. Speed Racer off the line...here's to you having an early transmission failure somewhere in the middle of nowhere on a 95 degree day.

I usually assume that this is some sort of safety Nazi who deems that traffic has been moving much too quickly, this person deems it his responsibility to impose his will upon us and make us go slow. this line of thinking usually gets me to the boiling point pretty quick and I usually end up hanging out the window shouting carefully crafted obscenities towards this individual. But I am soo sure that he is content in his making everyone be safer move that he does not mind the intense tongue lashing and chalks it up to being a martyr for his cause.







As you can see I spend waaaay too much time in traffic to come up with ideas like that




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

LOL i actually had this happen to me last night on Peterson. I was drving the limit, came up on another Audi owner and i wanted to ask him what percentege his tint was since it looked liked something i would want. I approach teh stoplight, and as soon as it turns green (i didn't even get to a full stop yet) this fool guns it making the V8 scream like i was going balls deep in the ass on one of the hookers on Fullerton. After showing me the madd skills of his vehicle he slowed down to 25 mph to try and wait for me and to possibly repeat this skill of his. I obviously did not pull up to him since i couldn't stop laughing in my car, so, instead i kept my pace. Friggin' toolbar...

Ahhh. People that pull that crap. One more reason to buy a mid 70's to early 80's 3/4 ton 4x4 big block and put a big ass Simon and Simon stlye bumper/pushbar on teh truck. While they are trying to stop, you just keep pushing them up to speed.

hehe that reminds me of a story my trucker buddy told me..

"dude there was this minivan that got in front of me to exit the expressway at night, but they immediately slammed on their brakes because 2 deer had just run out on to the road...as I slammed on my brakes I thought I was about to eat a new 'minivan pancake' from Ihop." The way he told that story was a riot.

I had an S4 trying to screw with me on the highway a while ago. Just rolled up and starts playing with the throttle like I should care or something. After a minute or so of that, my friend and I were getting annoyed and waved him to just hit it and go. I nailed it and put 10 bus lengths on that junk. We slow down, the S4 rolls up and the guy is holding his ear and shaking his head.

Normally I only get shitbox cars that want to race me at every stop light, it's annoying as hell.

Shiet, my buddy has a gold one and that thing sounds insane!! (i think it's a non ws6 too) Supposedly he's putting down between 500-600hp.(i think he's spraying too) I wonder how that thing would do against my other buddies single turbo Supra. Supposedly that thing puts down high 5's, untuned.

Does the Supra have a Type R sticker on it? That alone bumps the car to 500+ HP.....
