To be honest I have more important things to worry about.

I remember once I had a guy rev it on me and I simply showed him this



He busted out laughing, And gave me a thumbs up for the laugh

Generally speaking, when people rev on me, I just think, "Are they going to pay my ticket? No? Then why bother to risk it?"

I'm either oblivious or lucky. Live in LA work in OC and I don't believe I've ever had anyone try to race me at stop lights or rev at me. Infact, on the highway I'm usually the one going above the speed limit and passing everyone. Makes me wonder if other people think I'm doing a ricer fly-by and if, perhaps, you guys are just imagining these scenarios.

Just throwing it out there; if it's something you're looking for, you're eventually going to find it. Humans being pattern finding creatures and all... It's also possible my car looks too stock for people to care. No external mods

Ya bad luck i guess too much city driving, I don't really get revved on anymore but for some reason people get excited when they see the z and want to pass me. Of course I just let them but man it hasn't been pleasant at times.

There is.

No. Seriously, even tho' its significantly slower, takes more room to brake, and can't turn nearly as well as alleged, we are all envious villains in their lil fantasy world

However, it is a bit faster around a track than a 350Z (at least the earlier models). Maybe they can turn their potential for douchery towards them...

I got a big time fly-by from a Civic Si the other night. I wish the dude could see me yawning as he did it. (Literally, it was just a coincidence, but I was yawning.)

Am I the only one who has this problem with GTI owners more than anything else? Maybe it's a regional thing...

Sometimes they throw out a rev just to get your attention and hope that you rev in response so they can check it out. It's like dogs sniffing each other's balls, or trying to get a semi to airhorn ya.

I often get the 'oooh-look-at-that-car--roll-down-the-window-so-I-can-hear-it' reaction.

Found the old quote, from 2009, but it applies here:

Sometimes the kids in Scions, Civics, etc. are just being friendly and want to see/hear your car run.

I have the first BRZ fly by thread somehwere around here from a couple months back, so you know where i stand. lol

Pretty much any A-hole in any brand car trying to agg me and fly by me is going to be called out a douche. It's not my fault though if there are a small batch of cars that repeatedly chase me around and i call them out for their Douchebaggery. I don't have the drivers name. So i identify him by his car.

So be it.

On what track is this???? The FR-S is slower around the track than the Gencoupe 2.0T and beats the civic si hfe or whatever its called by a few milliseconds. Maybe an old, 350z with 360,000 miles on it thats been getting oil changes with regular oil every 15,000 miles and lost all pressure in the shocks. lol

A new FRS is probably faster around a track than a used DE 350Z with nankangs.
