I love the non-race: When you're just speeding up to take a lane or something, and you realize the engine beside you is screaming at max power output as the (insert really slow car here) is convinced it's getting the win

Post up your proof.

Better yet, let's just get back on topic?
Sounds good but what proof are you talking about?

Getting back on topic...for the most part I have guys in trucks always wanting to run it against me. Guys in trucks really think their cars are fast it's hilarious.
I had some redneck-looking guy in a full-sized pickup with the big, thick exhaust pipes rising up vertically between the cab and pickup bed - and loud as hell. He was going slow in the left lane - got to a stop light and the right lane was open - so I pulled up next to him.

As soon as I did - he's revving and rearing to go - his truck is probably faster than many econoboxes - hence his false sense of confidence.

Light turned green - a few seconds later he wasn't so confident anymore...

Mercedes CLS500 (04 - 08 gen) tried to race me last night. It was 2 AM and I had a long day, so I didn't even bother but he was aggressively pushing for it. The classic accelerating, braking then putting the hazards on.

lot of people deluding themselves here imho, especially if they have a 6MT. sure if rolling, most cars on the road will not keep up, but from a stop, it's not that hard to get the edge in an odyssey for chrissake.

Like in the rain? lol What are you talking about.

If Odyssey's (0-60 in 6.6s) are getting the edge on you in your F8x 6MT, it's time to switch to DCT...or maybe a different car.

If you know your F8x...and you understand how to launch / take off /modulate the clutch and throttle...how in the world are you getting edged on in your M-anual by minivans

Because we are not racing on well-paved roads. If we did stoplight races on highways; I would make fun of people too. One slight imperfection at 50% throttle will cause the traction control to cut power (light or not) Once traction is lost, you'll get dusted initially. Obvs once into 2nd gear you can say goodbye.

Why don't you turn TC off?

Because I don't others or myself to die. The people who end up wrapped around trees are typically fools who think the car is driveable on street roads with TC off. I know some of yall track your cars and shit so yall get the pass. But for someone (most of us) who have limited ability; its best to just lose.

It literally has to be 60 degrees, clean well paved and graded road, and yes Ill get 4.1 0-60. but for all these conditions to exist on the roads; especially the northeast is comical.

Plus who cares. lez be honest. most people that race me don't have a remote chance at beating me. i find it quite tiring to drive the car all amped up and redlined unless I'm in the mood.

Also the rev's drop super slow further its winter and find it a chore to drive the m3. find myself reaching for the honda pilot keys more often.

Edit: a better traction control software and wider tires will drastically reduce this swag wagon movement

Some numpty in a Seat Leon... I was purposely sticking to the limit due to very cold temps and damp roads, despite the fact I'd only just picked the car up...

They shot past me and immediately stopped at the same red lights as me

I love how the M4 just irritates people

My wife

We both drove off to work at the same time and ended up side by side at the stop light. On snow tires, even on dry pavement, I did not stand a chance. I did my best to maintain traction, but she just rocketed away in her RS3 and took at least 5 car lenghts on me. Quattro

I think a stage 1 or 2 RS3 would walk the F8X in almost any situation.

That's ok because at the end of the day our cars don't smell like a box of crayons. Just like all vw products.
