Today I was enlightened:

On the way home I stopped at an intersection and went to change the song, then the light turned green. As I started to go, still choosing the song and shifting when I needed, I notice that the driver in the car next to me seems to be in a real adrenaline rush or something as he passes me.

Then he cuts me off and sticks his hand out the window, begins to give me a thumbs up then gives me the all-American classic thumbs down, followed by the middle finger, and speeds off.

Apparently I was racing him...

Anyone with similar experiences?

maybe you cut him off and didn't know it? or swerved in his lane while changing the song..hahaha.
Yeah usually I that's what I would have assumed but that wasn't the case, you could tell with his 15" chrome wheel covers and loud exhaust.

My buddy drove a 98 accord sedan and my 02 cavalier (not Z24) was a damn even match so i would think that getting "smoked" by a accord is pretty unlikely.

vtak makes me happy in my pants


that is flipping win. :)

Anyways, similar thing, driving home in a g35.. and 4 kids in a 2000ish civic pulled up beside me and matched my speed, the car was a mess and the bass they had was killing the trunk lol. Anyways all their hats were backwards and they all had white sunglasses (it was raining lightly) and he ripped off with his fart cannon full blast. When we pulled up to a light they were all laughing looking at me cuz I didn't race them... if only i had a razor scooter to make it fair :)

Crocs are built with the same technology as vtec. He probably would've had a chance. I guess we'll never know.

I still don't see how its possible to lose to a heavy 4 door accord.
Possible just unlikely. But never ever ever underestimate the power of VTECH!
