If sombody is tailgating me on a two laner I start driving like im drunk and they back way off. Freeway if traffic is permitting I just hammer on it and make an opening.
i'm sure you did, you sound like such a tough guy... i know i wouldn't want to **** with you... although i do have to admit, i also am a little bit tougher when i am talking on the internet too...

I dont have a problem with tailgaters, I have a REAL problem with people driving 23 in a 35. That **** pisses me off till no end. ugh.

So yeah, I am probably that asshat behind you with the highbeams on and the four offroad lights melting the tint off your rear window, but as soon as you manage to remember what the right pedal does, you stop getting a suntan on the back of you head.


idiots...

LOL

Insert BRAKE CHECK here..........

Kiss that front end goodbye. And my answer for the accident to the officer, "An animal jumped out in front of me, and some douche ran into me." And the ticket is awarded to tailgating douchebag who failed to keep their vehicle at a safe distance and failed to avoid the vehicle in front of them.

When you come up on a slow moving vehicle, pass it. Don't do what you said, the little old man or lady in the slow moving Lincon just might take out their 2nd amendment piece and fire a few through your windshield.

Just keep some reese's peanut butter cups in a cup in your truck. They will get nice and soft from being in the truck. Throw them out the window and when it hits their windsheild it will splat. Then their wipers will smear it all over :-D

see posts about oil in washer fluid pumps...

i would say people should spray brake fluid, it's a thin enough liquid that the wipers should wipe it off, but you get that guy in the 80 000$ bmw he just picked up, thinking he is god's gift to the road, just a quick little squirt, he won't know how much of a mistake he made, by tailgating you, for about a day or so...

just so you all know, i would never actually do this one... however, the washerfluid, or water, i absolutely would...

I squirted 2 people the other day within 15 mins... Then yesterday morning i had a guy in a demo car from a dealer tailing me so i figured screw the water i want your bumper so the break check came in handy and he look liked he shat himself... Then i had a van behind me last night who the squirting didnt phase him so i turned over drive off and slowed to about 45 and he just rode me closer so the break went to the floor and his front end dove down deep and he flashed the highbeams then i floored it. Resumed my 70mph speed and i could see him disappearing in the mirror from driving really slow.

Its not going to break my heart if you dont belive me I dont care. Theres no way I can prove I did and theres no way you can prove that I didnt. The point of the story is dont **** with other people like that cause you may very well catch the wrong person at the wrong time.

I really wish you could drop like a spike strip or somthing at times lol. I have also tampered with the idea of puting a bypass switch on my brake lights so they dont come on when I step on the pedal but it would have to be like a quick disconnect or somthing so I could trough it in the woods before the cops got there for the accident.

well for one, people at the gas station wouldn't just stand by while you beat the crap out of 2 guys in the middle of the day, plus, i honestly don't think you could take 2 guys...

if you have exhaust pipes going straight out the back,
drill and tap a hole into your exhaust (after any o2 sensors) ....run a line from a reservoir w/ pump to the hole, fill reservoir with oil or diesel fuel and at the push of a button you can make a nice little smoke screen

oil into the exhaust, at hiway speeds, far enough back that no o2 will see it, i don't think would be hot enough to smoke oil... deisel it might, but i don't know...

I've found that most people drive on autopilot, going about 40ish most everywhere, even in 25mph subdivisions or when the county road's (mostly unposted) limit is 55. I love to blow passed them when it's 55 and I look forward to holding them down to 25 in subdivisions. I need a 200db mega PA horn that I can use to announce the speed limit. I've practiced many times, "Hey dumb azz...it's 55 now....are you lost?" and then, "Ohhh, such a fast race car you have...you can go 40 in a 25....ohhh sooo powerful!" But then, I digress easily...

x2. i must say after lifting my truck, i got more "respect" i guess you could call it.

people dont cut you off. dont follow too closely. usually you get the right of way. (unless its a bigger truck) lol

but then i would notice when i drove my car, no way. huge difference. at least thats how it felt for me.

So you get a guy to crash into you because you squirted him. Then you have to explain to the officer why your brake lights aren't working or why there is oil/brake fluid on their windshield. If I was an officer I would search for things like oil on the washer fluid bottle with a hose running to the back or working lights if they survive the accident. Uh oh. What is this? Lawsuit and/or jail time.

I just let off the gas and slow down then when they try to pass me I stomp on the gas. No need for brake checks.
