People wanting to race my Mazda 3........

Seriously. What gives? I go out and everytime get atleast 2-3 challenges a day. Sometimes even more. I just ignore the idiots. But there ALWAYS trying to get my attention. If its blowing by me, revs at a light, pulling up next to me with revs and jerking there car forward. For an example today this happened. I drove pass an RX8 and lo and behold. I said watch. Hes gonna gun it out of his lane from a dead stop and follow me. Sure enough. It was lowered had some wheels on it and painted just married. Ok. Whatever. He wants to impress his lady. This guy is riding my ass from the back and gets next to me. Just driving right beside off and on. Just waiting for me to take off. I continue to ignore him. We get to a stop light and im behind 2 cars. Hes in the next lane by himself. Right before take off. He revs the piss out of it and takes off. Am I suppose to be impressed? I wasnt. I think what really kills these guys is there wanting to know if its fast or not. And by me not taking the bate. They will never know if it is or not. Someone in a TC the other day pulled up next to me. Blasting there music. He goes. "hey" is that thing fast? I just ignored him. He was turning and I was going straight. He turned really fast from a stop. Wow your so cool. I mean damn. I dont think my car is anything special. Just has a few mods. But this sure does get annoying. A pic of my car for reference. Any of you guys have problems like this in your 3?

Re: People wanting to race my Mazda 3........

you don't exactly have a "sleeper" look with the calipers and what looks like 18"s- which is why you're getting the attention.

People are trying to complement you because your car looks good. I wouldn't find that annoying; it's amusing.

Re: People wanting to race my Mazda 3........

It's definitely the gas cap.

It may be annoying that they challenge you constantly, but realize that you're a better person for not taking the bait. I've got to hand it to ya, most people would. You've got a nice-looking 3, and folks are saying to themselves "damn that looks nice, but if I can beat it, my car that doesn't look as nice is better."

Silly guys and their penis envy.

Re: People wanting to race my Mazda 3........

If your car is lowered, has an exhaust and rims, it'll happen. No way around it.

The exhaust and lowered stance is probably what attracts them the most.

Re: People wanting to race my Mazda 3........

They never beat anything since I never even tried. I already know mine is slow as hell. But yeah inside. I guess thats what makes them feel secure. I can only imagine what the MazdaSpeed 3 owners go through on a daily basis. I need to pay on my car for 1 more year and im really wanting a speed3. But not sure if the harassment would be worth it or not.
