    I am not a "street racer type". But on my commute, there is flooding, and 3 lanes go down to 1 lane about 1.5 miles from the light. It goes 3 to 2 about 1/2 mile from the light. All lanes merge to the right.

    i was in the far right lane, doing my normal speed limit commute when I was the 1st at the light. Dude in his brand new Infinity Qx70 pulls out from behind me to the left and into the center lane. He obviously wants to jump in front of me. He reached up and messed with his radar detector.

    I flip to sport mode. And we go from the light. I put 3 cars on him 0-60 and shut it down. He tucked in behind me and flipped me off when he realized my big ass truck was too much for his car.

    I just grinned and waved back at him.

    My parents drive one of those Infiniti SUVs (either the 60 or 70), and that thing can't compete with a Rap.

    Glad he gave you the finger salute though; Must have made it 10x more satisfying.

    Tow/haul mode is a good option too.

    I had a guy in a SRT10 4 door run me from 30 to 90 and he didn’t pull me 1’inch then let off rolled down his window and give me thumbs down. My first thought was what a dick then 2nd thought was he has 4 more cylinders and wasn’t a off-road truck on 35’s. He must have been pissed. Lol

    I normally don't drive like a dick or race anyone, but one time merging onto the Verrazzano Bridge in my Gen 1, an Infiniti Q60 cut me off so hard that he was barely within inches of my front bumper. It made me more pissed at the fact that he had so much time to move over, but didn't until the absolute last second. Once we got around the bend on the lower level, I was neck and neck with him and I heard his engine rev up so I said here we go and punched it. Never thought I'd pull on him, but I did about a half, 3/4 car length. He was in the far left lane with a car in his lane about a quarter/half mile up, I was in the middle lane with no one in front. He kept going until he had to slow down... eventually I got right in front of him and took the bend onto the Belt Pkwy nice and slow. Felt GREAT lol.

    "I am not a street racer type," but today you drove like a teenaged boy with a brain full of hormones.
    And you think it's okay because, um, well...
    HEY, how is risking yourself, your family's future, and everyone else on the road okay as you f**k with a stranger on a public road?
    If a law enforcement officer saw that you and your fellow "asshat" wouldn't have just gotten cited, you'd have both been arrested.

    Well. 0-60 runs with haste are not "illegal". So....I get what you are saying, but in this instance.....i was just having a little fun.

    Don't judge. you don't know the road. I would not have done a 0-60 pull if there was any danger.
