after ive change my wheels and put on a body kit ive noticed other motorist being aggressive and intimidating. especially with those small car racers. i feel like they always want to reace with me or prove that they are faster. have you guys ever have this experience? everytime i end up in front of the stop light 1 in 2 idiot will try to get in front of me. they dont understand that not all cars that looks fast goes fast and want to race everyone.

i've had similar experiances, not because the car looked fast and pretty, because it looked old and knackered, used to drive a volvo 760 estate, in metallic gold, looked like i'd stole it off me grandad!!!, used to get the corsa's, saxo's and fiesta's sitting on me tail then pulling out to overtake, unfortunatly the volvo was a 2.8 auto with over drive! used to let them get level with the drivers window, smile at them and then floor it, needless to say no of them ever got past!!!!

I get the same, but depends on how I'm feeling if I blow em away or not lol. If on a dual carriage way I let them get in front an think they are doing well then just fly past em lol sad and immature but puts a smile on my face

Yes I get it alot. Usually when I have the kids with me. I just let them get on with it, they know the score.
I never have the problem with cars that are more powerfull or faster, just people who think they have something to prove. Also, it is usually older people rather than the younger lads.

Dont really get this round my way as very1 no's my motor but when i go through to Hamilton i get it all the time, like said above they think its a 7 seater look at u and give it sum revs, little do they realise your packing a Turbo, I never gun my Zaffy as the fuel gauge drops as fast as the speedo rises, I just let them no its not worth it.
