So on my home tonight I was cruising down the hwy. MMOB and a SRT4 comes up beside me. I am unsure of the mods but was def. aftermarket exhaust and a BOV. He gets beside me and revs so I rev back and put it in the correct gear. As soon as I got in gear and the rpms raise up he hits the brakes to get behind me so I'm thinking he must've got scared (V8 muscle scares everyone) so I put it back in 6th. A short time later he is probably 1-2 cars behind me and I see him coming quickly from behind me to do a fly by so I drop to 4th at ~60 and nail it when his rear bumper is at my side view mirror. I immediately stop his pull and slowly inch back to his driver door then he lets up around 125 mph. I try to get him to run me fairly but everytime I pull even with him he hits his brakes and pulls behind me then does a fly by again (I don't bite on these). This occurs for a few miles and we are getting close to the edge of town and there is a red light. I end up right beside him I ask "are you ever gonna give me a fair run" he replies "NOPE". I was shocked but I tell him "you know you would lose in a fair race" he just rolls up his window and doesn't look at me anymore. So I am PISSED its my first run-in with anything since my cam install and I can't even get a fair chance. I KNOW that from the same 60 roll even start with me 3rd not 4th I'da walked him but this asshole wouldn't run fairly. If anyone in North AL is reading this and knows this guy PLEASE refer him to this thread and have him give me a reason why he was such a douche.

His car is a red SRT4 with for sure an aftermarket exhaust and a BOV. It also has a Big A in the back glass for the Alabama football team. Thats all the info on the car I have. The guy was definitely a teenager or possibly early twentys and had an emo looking "Justin Bieber" haircut. Thanks for reading my story and for reading my rant.

Thats exactly what it looked like but in a street race thats a dick move. I know we are in the south but it aint freaking NASCAR

I hate that kid. But good kill on the NEON. I had one of those going by me the other day popping his BOV. I just sat there (I don't street race) and laughed. :gay:

Sounds like you got alot of chances to race. So he didnt wana do it door to door. You could still have been ready and when he pulled his shit you didnt let him pass. This works with GREAT SUCCESS here in Kazakhstan!!!

Maybe he wanted a slower roll race?

That's how my friend was in his z28, I'm sitting here playing cat and mouse with him on the freeway all night :lol: Thing was, I'd smoke him and let off at about 120mph and he would just keep going, hitting turns at 130mph+ and claim he WON??? but we dig raced a couple of times and I blew his doors off every. single. time. (on street tires)

Imo op, I would've either flew pass this idiot to where he can't even catch up to you anymore OR just cruise in 6th and waive :D

Yeah that really isn't the correct way to race. But I DID chase him the one time and I inched back up on him when he had a "slingshot" move on me. I did not chase him anymore because I wanted a "fair" race so bad. I don't think he wanted a slower roll because he would hit his brakes and switch lanes to get directly behind me. He did this on several occasions and then proceed to do a slinshot ricer flyby on me. I try real hard not to do chase races so I wasn't gonna keep entertaining him with them and then he thinks he keeps getting wins. I am looking for this guy I have several of my car friends trying to find him and get him to run me straight up and if I'm lucky he will run for $.

They do kinda suck...My buddy's with 450hp cant hook for shit with slicks at the track and when he dose he just breaks shit. My second car was a Honda with a decent amount of power (never got it on a dyno) and that officially made me realize how gay front wheel drive is, I should have got another 240sx at least after my first one was hit and totaled out. But for awhile now I have been a LS fan and will never switch to anything else until I get older and get a Gallardo TT.

I was saying neon owners suck, but FWD does suck too. It was an attempt at self deprecation; a wimpy attempt at humor. The car itself, as a daily driver, doesn't suck. If it was my only car, that would suck, but I don't have to suffer because I have a turbo F-body to be my fast car. What's sad is my slow car can beat most people's fast car...

if you had dropped to 2nd at 60 I bet he wouldn't of even gotten along side of you!

apparently he didn't want to take the beating like a man and tried to gain the advantage by making you try and match his speed. i hate when people does that crap. he should've atleast slowed down and got an fair run in.

What this guy said. I agree 100%. I do respect the srt4's for what they are I know some stuff about them. I mean I took my fair share of beatings from the 05 Srt4 that my brother used to have. It was a Mopar stage 3 kit car also. 2nd gear at 50 hell yeah 2nd at 60 is a no go its instant tire smoke and an instant shift.

When he pulls that kind of shit he WONT run ya for money. He knows he cant win, thats why he played his lil Ricky Bobby games with ya :jest::jest::rice
