I just got my Mazda 3, but no one wants to have some fun on the road

I recently moved from Europe to California. In Europe there are a lot more people competitive on the road I guess.

I have my Mazda for a month now. Last Sunday I went on the 55N, after driving behind two Impreza's for 15 minutes. I knew they were friends, and were ready to hit the gas for a little bit. One of the guys came next to me, and kinda asked me if I wanted to play around a little bit(I stayed behind them the first 15 min, so they kinda knew I was ready for some action). For about 20 minutes, we did some sprints from 50mp/h to 120mp/h. Of course they were faster than my Mazda 3 2.3. But it was a lot of fun, they were very nice guys, and thanked me while I was leaving the 55N.

Sometimes at a traffic light I'm standing next to a car with nice rims, an exhaust that makes a lot of noise etc etc but they never wanna compete....

Of course, the fines here are crazy, and maybe I will talk different after getting my first one....

What are your guys experiences...?

This is just my perspective, but my car is my dd as well as the one I race, so if I want to race, I leave that to the track where if something goes wrong while I'm straining my car, it can be handled accordingly.

no offense, but they probably don't want to race because you're driving a mazda 3...

it is more than just a fine for street racing. You can get put in jail for it and get your car impounded or crushed.

Exactly. Hell, I've given up on trying because no one ever wants to play with a Mazda3. Maybe their scared of 15 seconds of quarter mile fury?
