    driving home from the casino last night

    I'm in 6th gear cruising @ about 70 mph. I am in a fairly good mood because i made 700 bucks on the black jack tables. I am in the "slow lane" approaching a few cars, so I turn my blinker on, (keep it in 6th gear). I proceed to pass them. When one of the cars darts out, and guns it. Practically cutting me off.

    It was a lowered, fart can exhaust, tinted, aftermarket wheels. silver Hatchback GTI. (not sure what year) fairly new.

    I don't think to much of it at first, but he slowed down, and I was catching up with him (still going about 70mph)-- He speeds off again.

    I realize that he wants to play. So I drop only to 5th (lol) all that I needed. and played catch up. But he obviously didn't want to line up. Because he stayed on it till over 100 mph. I know because he was still putting distance on me after I maintained 100 mph.

    Now I am irritated. Because I rarely have an opportunity to get a race.

    Traffic opened up, and he is a few hundred yards ahead. I drop to fourth and proceed to catch him like he was sitting still.

    traffic was approaching, so I lay off, because I like to think I do have a wild streak in me, but I am not going to put others at risk to have alittle fun.

    So i back off.

    He continues on, doing well over 100 mph-- I finally gave, up, because in order for me to catch him I was going to have to do probably 130 mph, which I was not willing to do.

    bottom line--- I was so aggravated that he wouldn't be "man" enough to slowed down, and let me safely get beside him and run them.

    I guess that is the majority of youth "racer" mentality, if you can't beat them, put everyone on the road way in danger and then brag to your buddies on how a WS6 couldn't hang.

    I could have easily flew by him at 140+ mph like he was sitting still, but I was a bit smarter than that.

    SO instead of a kill, I guess you could say, I prevented an accident. If he is willing to go that fast, and cut me off. I am sure He would have been dumb enough to go past his driving limits.

    Sorry for the story book. This is why I just assume line up at the track, Because people are A-holes on the street. I was surprised he didn't put his hazards on.

    PS with my 700 winnings, I am buying a Pro 5.0 w/ Lou's short stick. Giving the wife some to spend too.

    LOL-- I guess you are right, I just hate knowing that this dufus is probably typing on a VW board about how he "blew my doors off" LOL--

    I know.... you know.... everyone with half a brain knows, but the object is to let them know they are no competition.

    Oh well, I can't wait until the track opens up this year!

    Smart move man. I caught a guy tonight after he did a rice fly-by, then i caught him, lined them up @ around 80ish. He down-shited and i left it in 4th, left him like he was standing still.(no traffic just me and an idiot)
    Well after i slowed down, i was like what happened? He just flicked me off and quickly got off the next exit. WTF?
    I really am just gunna quit waisting my time and gas for these punks. (at least if i dont have a video cammera w/ me)lol

    Very smart move I had something similar happen when I was playing around with a Porsche the other day. We would line up eventually and then I we would both take off from around 60. I would just put the car in fourth and go up till around 90ish or whenever I had 4-5 cars on him then slow down. We did this about 4-5 times and each time he would just keep going for a long time. For me it was just to dangerous and a waste keep running up that long. Does not really matter what some stranger thinks, better to be safe and know the facts then fix their delusion and risk a big ticket.. or much worse.
