This guy in a bone stock honda pilot mini SUV, 0-60 of approximately nine seconds, (Edmunds test) is next to me at a light and starts revving his engine, I look over and he motions that he wants to race me. I laugh and shake my head. My car is 4.1 0-60, not even remotely close.
Then the light turns, and we are both sitting there waiting for the other to go, he gives in and goes first. I stay a car-length behind him, we slowly go up to the speed limit, then he starts backing off trying to get me in front of him so he can gun it and goad me on. He finally gives up and goes away.
So post your stories of snubbing idiots trying to race, I bet there are some good ones! No stories of actual races on roads, just declined challenges.
