Here the avg speed of traffic is around 75.
when I am cruising the 405 in my M roadster it never fails.
Some kid in his honda powered unit ( I am guessing its Honda powered by the stickers all over it) will come along side and start trying to get me to play tag. They usually rev up their Maxwell House exhaust can system to impress me.
Then, while at 75-80, I just push the pedal to the floor.. In the M, I just walk away from them. Don't even have to downshift!!! Usually they stop pestering me after that. :)
