Trying to race you at a stop light...

I'm ready to buy a Camaro Coupe LS, but I've asked a few friends and they've all said about the same thing: I'll have some kid trying to race me at every single stoplight.

I plan to use the car as a daily driver, not any racing.

Is it common? Has it happened to you?

It takes two to race. Be the better person and obey the law.

I've had many (not just kids) people inch forward and rev up next to me at stop lights. I always laugh to myself and think, they'll be the one to get the ticket if they punch it, even if they don't get a ticket, they don't get the joy. Racing is for the tracks, when and if it happens, don't think any less of yourself when they go rippin off at the green light.

Not to sound like a dick, but I would probably be the guy that pulls up next to you and goes ripping off

I race anything that looks nice with wheels Street racing is a blast, it's a bit unsafe, but is cheaper than going to the tracks and I don't have to wait until the weekend. That and you get so much more of a thrill out of it.

I'd go ahead and buy the car though. Just try to ignore the adrenaline junkies like me

I say the same.......don't worry about these kind ... I don't and I own a 2SS. I have had several including other camaro owners rev up to try and get my nerves. I did not buy the car to burn off the tires....I have owned alot of camaro's and enjoy driving this one alot....and yes I have tested it out on a highway where most people are not but I still don't race it. Be safe, and be aware of dopes

needs no explanation

where i live theres a lot of wannabe gangsters who drive fugly hondas (thats probably why i dont go to my local car events). I've heard from a lot of friends that this "gangsters" (which they probably will) would gang up on the guy if he beats them.

Not to get you scared or anything, you probably dont live where i do but just be aware of who you race if you ever race.

BTW, Welcome!
