Damn, I feel bad about this now...

Coming home tonight, I get this guy in an old Civic pull up alongside me at a stop light. When the light went green, he was off like a rocket, to the next red stop light. As I get there, my radar detector starts to beep like crazy... must be a cop on speed patrol ahead. Mr. Old Honda is still revving his POS, so I take the bait. I hold the Scoupe at 3000 rpm, and as the light goes green, let out the clutch quickly. I get a couple of cars length jump on the Honda, but then shut off the gas and gently cruise to the speed limit. Mr Honda goes screaming off into the distance, only to get pulled two blocks ahead by a very pissed off looking cop.

At the time I was like "hell, yeah, woo!<img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>", but now I feel kind of bad for setting up a Honda driver like that...<img src=icon_smile_dissapprove.gif border=0 align=middle>

Waddya think, did I do a bad thing?? <img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle>

[On a side note, years of driving have taught me better than to race on surface streets]

Yes,
Put yourself in his place.<img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle>
You set him up to get caught by reving on him. Just because he was a Honda Driver???

Well I agree with importracer... you entered an agreement that you guys would race when you reved your engine and took off... nobody wants tickets, no matter how deserving they are. Anyway, everyone gets what they deserve in the end... if you believe in that kind of thing.

Well the point is that the guy would have speed through anyways. He did it at the first light, and he would have done it at the second light again. (Hence recieving a ticket anyways...) No hurt in having a little fun...

IR2K, Decrum;
Been there, done that, got the ticket, paid the fine, endured the driving ban*... Perhaps it's true that it's what has happened in life that shapes what will happen. <img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle>

[*Racing an Escort Turbo back in England - 95mph in a 40 side by side, when the other guy anchors up. I go sailing past the photo-radar machine at over twice the limit. A week later a brown envelope drops through the mail with a court summons for a dangerous driving charge. The fine wasn't too bad, but you don't realise just how much you rely on your car until you have to live without it for a month. <img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle> ]

There's more...

You know what I find odd - what I'm driving seems to make a difference to who wants to race. When I'm in the Hyundai, everyone and their grandfather wants to race between stoplights, from the dude in the beaten up econobox to the wannabe racer in the Viper and the distinguished gent in the Caddy. For the last couple of weeks I've had the use of a '94 Mustang GT 5.0 with straight pipes, headers and intake rolling on 17"s. When I'm in the 'Stang, no one except for Camaro and Mustang drivers wants to race. Makes you wonder if for a quiet, hassle free life you should by the f-off fastest car you can find...
