Default 93 se vs. Eclipse

last night i was driving around and i saw this older green eclipes a couple of cars ahead of me with those euro lights and a fin. So of course, i did a couple of lane changes and pulled up next to him at a light. He looks over at me and then to his friend and laughs. just before the light turned green, he went. i gave him that head start and then punched it. just then a car turns out infront of me and guns it to catch up to the eclipse. i'm right on this guys tail and i'm catching up to the eclipse and the mother f*cker slams on his brakes and blocks me in. i was just about to pass the eclipse too. so i do a lane change and the eclipse slows down to block me inbetween the two of them. it pissed me off soo much cause he knew that i had him. he kept trying not to get stuck at the lights with me cause he knew what woulda happen. i'm soo pissed. o well, i'm racing my friends intrepid today and he'* got a chip in it. i'll take my anger out on him. Later

Ya, they are cheaters. They totally knew you had them, just weren't man enough to take a defeat. Nice job showing them the power of the Bonnie though!

For me its a waste of time because they end up finding you complaining they didn't shift right (even thought they probably have an auto) or they just make up some scenario on how they lost. Then they develop attitude and get jerky with ya and WON'T LEAVE YOU ALONE! I've had this damn Dodge Neon with ground effects and a wing follow me around CONSTANTLY because he doesn't like my friend. God damn its getting annoying, this guy won't talk to me, race me, or just say "hey". I dont even know the kid and I think hes got beef with me. Ricers annoy me for the most part, but there are a few that can be fun to hang out and race with because they are grown up some.

Sorry, but I get bitter over this subject sometimes.

It'* alright. Personal experiences like yours changes minds. You have had more contact with ricers than I have, so you would have a better frame of reference.
