Any one challenge you?

While driving your M3 do you get people who want to race at a stop light or while on the freeway?

these threads fail every time, no one wants to get flamed for talking about racing on public roads. . .circa BMWPRINCE4LIFE no one really likes talking about it much.

A few weeks ago some douche in a 997 GT3 tried to race me in Irvine near the In-N-Out on Campus. Had a CLS550 and a EVO X try and race me as well driving in from Vegas on the I-15, somewhere after Rancho Cucamonga. I didn't take the bait, not really a street racer, but I do tend to drive quickly anyway so they might have got the wrong idea.

Some guy in an IS350 seemed to think he could crush me, he floored it after a couple of lights. I pretended like I was going to race grannied it to the speed limit then stopped. Haha, my guess is he thinks he slaughtered me.

I get challenged all the time... Evo's, Lambo's, Ferrari's, Ford GT's, M5's, Audi R8's, Bentley Continentals, Maserati's, Aston Martins, 997 Turbo's, even G37's... all those cars are a dime a dozen out here in Pacific Palisades/Malibu. I don't even flinch.. no street-racing for me... period!

Reasons: nothing to prove : respect for life : not safe : not worth the punishment... end of story.

Back when I was young and had a Supra I raced Tom Cruise (he was in his NSX at the time), he creamed my ass.

I always see John Mayer in his Baby Blue Ford GT around town.. as well as Dean Cain in his Yellow Lambo, the cars around here are RIDONKULOUS!

997 Carrera drivers try and race all the time. Must be generally insecure.

I used to see him every morning at the same traffic light so one day I decided to floor it, I must have been around 18-19 yrs old.

Had a Cobra pull up next to me at a light yesterday...the road goes out in the country, with no sideroads for about 1/2 mile, so I figured wtf.

He guns it at the green and I hear his tires chirping for grip...I floor it (in S6 -- no LC). I get about 2 lengths on him right off the bat. The M has great grip in first! I race through the top of 3rd gear and he backs out of it. He did not gain on me at all, and I would pull on him a bit at the top end of my gears.

Pretty fun....LC should be online today too!

I dunno but an M3 challenged me on the 405 the other day a Jerez black metallic E90 sedan looked lowered I didn't pay too much attention. He just crept up behind me and stomped on it without warning and at first I was playing catch up then some cars got in my way so I said fuck it. He just gave me a thumbs up for catching up quickly I guess. One day I'll get a good run in.

So far two M5's, an E63, Sl55, and yesterday a Gallardo. The Gallardo was barely faster and if I had not skrewed up off the line it would have been fairly even. The early gallardo's are not as quick as I thought.
