Default I got a taste of the rainbow.

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 ******* 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.

One thing I forgot to mention is this encounter was on motor. Unfortunately the N2O was not turned on.

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.

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 **** you didnt let him pass. This works with GREAT SUCCESS here in Kazakhstan!!!

That's how my friend was in his z28, I'm sitting here playing cat and mouse with him on the freeway all night 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
