They call the term, "a ricer fly by..."
Cars building up tons on speed prior to even coming close to neck and neck with another faster car and they "think" they won a race... Pretty common.

Just like track rats on many forums "think" that they're some Le Mans racer who is actually sponsored as a racer...

Just spend a ton of money with mods, "that'll show em!!!" LOL

This happens all the time with me. Maybe itís a NY thing. But itís not just 3 and 4 series. Lots of Acuraís and Infinitis too. The worst is when Iím stopped at a light and one of them pulls up next to me. I know theyíll press on it when the light turns green and I really never reciprocate. I have nothing to prove - they can think they ďwonĒ and Iím content with that. Believe it or not I actually enjoy driving the speed limit lol

In my opinion a race takes place on a track and involves actual turns, hitting apexes and using strategy...where braking is more important for lap times than ridiculous and unusable amounts of power. The stuff that takes place on the highways is nothing more than dick measuring and utilizes a level of skill that a chimpanzee probably possesses. So for the handful of times someone did a flyby on me, I smiled knowing that my car caused them to act irrationally.

A car pulls up next to me with windows down, loud music. I pay no mind. Starts to rev the engine, still don't turn my head.

My man literally honked and laid on his horn to get me to turn around to give me a "what's good" nod.

You're literally in a Veloster N..a fkn Hyundai.

Ready for the big surprise? It was the n20. E30 map stage 2 with zf8 trans tune and grippy tires.

So, before the mighty fall, the pride comes first. Always know your race and run it. I wouldn't dare race a tuned s55 in that car but above all, it's about fun. I don't care about "stepping" like my genitalia are an extension of my vehicle and vice versa.
Sounds hard to believe the most an N20 can push on stock turbos is 300-320HP :

Happened to me within the first few days of buying the car. I bought the car in a different city. I'm still on the temporary in transit plates, and not familiar with the roads so I'm going speed limit. A Dodge challenger comes along side for a moment and then rips by. Wasn't sure which one but definitely sounded like one of the V8s. An explorer follows right behind him and sure enough it's a ghost car and pulls the guy over. Counting my lucky stars that I didn't try and engage him. Really wish I had my dash cam installed already and could've caught it on video.

Don't worry, these guys are just dreaming and think anyone that overtakes or drives a little faster in the lane next to them is trying to race them 😂

Happens to me everyday; 'like dude, I'm merely trying to make good time and be on my way, no one is trying to race you or have something to prove' 🤷🏻

I just ignore and let them have their win..

Understood. I ran several cars from a dig and always fared well until they hit third and then they flew by me, as did the m4. Having owned both I donít think itís hard to believe when the M4 was stock. Power under the curve, gearing and weight have everything to do with it aside from driver input.

That said, it wasnít to post something so someone who has no experience with one could argue my experiences, rather to share enthusiasts enthuse and others armchair and judge. I see which one you are.

No ones judging you I'm simply saying an N20 cant pull on an M4 it was either a bad driver or he must've had all his settings in comfort and drive logic in D1. I've owned an N20 N55 and an S55 and the N20 is by far the least impressive car by all means. Even FBO its underwhelming to say the least. Don't be so emotional LOL

Not even remotely emotional. His squealing tires (hard launch), loud engine and screaming exhaust when he passed me were the indicators he was racing. Bad driver? Sure. Maybe but who knows. If you recall, it was until app 80 which isn’t a quarter mile. I didn’t say I “won” rather described precisely what happened. I ran them, was ahead, then passed.

I also played with two hellcats, a scat pack, a couple gt mustangs, and the last run which was dead even through 3 gear back to back runs was a stock 2020 SS camaro. All with similar outcomes. Launch I would leave the hellcats and M4, gt mustangs, then most except the mustangs took a couple gears to pass me. These lose steam in third comparatively but my experience was consistent.

Very rarely I have someone pull up next to me wanting to race. If anywhere, it happens on the interstate. Usually some damn camaro or mustang. Corvette here and there. Iím usually moving at a good clip on the interstate when I travel so I pass these guys and then here they come. Downshifting, reving up next to me. Depending on my mood (and traffic) I may or may not run them. Get a few cars in the city wanting to run at the stop light. They rev up, I rev up, light turns green. They take off balls to the wall and I easily let out of the clutch and drive like grandma off the line! Got a couple people pulled over doing that! Lol
Only bmws I ever get pulling up next to me is other M cars. We usually never race. Just help each other get through traffic quicker! And of course a nice thumbs up exchanged!

Where in California? Here in Norcal, I have quite a few people trying to race me in my 3 years of ownership. I would say 15-20 encounters.

Most notably, E90 M3, other F80 that looks stock, M2c, Chargers/Challengers, C63, and once a 335 with I believe an upgraded turbo.

I had a guy in a Nissan truck pull up and do a one wheel peel with his drivers rear tire for a solid 30 seconds at a stop light on Friday morning waiting for our light to turn green, smoke all over. I quickly got the f_ck out of there when our light turned green.

People in shit cars are constantly driving aggressive around me as if to prove something. Most the time I'm hoping they wreck so I can point laugh as I drive by.

They just wanna have fun!! Not everyone can afford an M I pulled up to an m2 in my stage 2 m235 and we went at it from the red light. I pulled on him until about 60 then he walked me.
