It's worth noting most people do 50-55 on this street but still
>Retard keeps going until he hits about 90 in a 35
The speed limit goes up to 55 after that road but this nigga's doing 90 in a fucking 35.
Now the reason this is so fucking stupid on his part is both lanes merge and then that merges onto a highway so at his speed he'd have no way of yielding to traffic to get onto it whereas at 60 I could have easily done so. Bet he's texting all of his buddies while still driving about how he beat me in a race
I'm not going to mention what I drive to avoid arguments and benchracing but it's not a Mustang and has a sub-5 second 0-60.
The point is what possesses people to go to incredibly dangerous lengths to race people that they have 0 chance of beating? I mean I'm down for a little competition but I'm not going to go 3x the speed limit, especially if other cars are on the road.

>are u secretly wearing panties again?
All this rationalization about how he beat you because you ran out of balls before you ran out of horsepower
Real racing on the street from my experience is about 80% balls 30% horsepower
Long story short you lost to a civic and he probably made your boipussy wet
> worried about merging
> not not using the lane reserved for ballets (the shoulder)
There was no shoulder; it's hard to explain but it's an EXTREMELY accident prone spot due to poor planning. If I wanted to win I'd have just dropped it in 2nd from the start, if I wanted to keep going in 5th I couldn't anyway because there was a car coming up in my lane and the Civic was still lined up with me.
And no, street racing is typically a contest of actual speed between two cars in the same or a similar class. It's entirely possible to do that without posing a considerable risk to yourself or others but I'm not going to kill people to indulge some kid
If I was in 5th gear it's pretty clear I wasn't taking it seriously

Well that's if you're making sure it's clear instead of just being subhumans playing Chicken on public roads
at night one time i signalled left at a round about by mistake, but then i went straight ahead
the guys behind me overtook me then one of them popped out the window and started making rude hand gestures
just had to get that off my chest
>0%chance of beating
For me I drive a sleeper so it's not exactly like that. But when I roll up in my girlfriends Altima next to a hellcat I'm going to see what he can do.
Sure I might not do it exactly how you described, but from personal experience I only fun it when I'm sure the are around and in front of me is clear.
It's the next best thing since I can't drive it, you know?
I get that, but what I was getting at was he wanted to do the same to you, he just wasn't as intelligent about it.
Sure he could've killed and or maimed someone, but tbh, until he gets close to/does it, he's likely not going to learn.
I dd'd a truck without airbags for my first vehicle so i learned defensive driving pretty easily. it also made transitioning to cars with mods easier.
my experience with civic drivers is they live off saying they "beat" better cars because the better car was driving smarter.
