I have read in both forums; Charger Forums and LXFourms, that Charger owners are being challenged to street races. Some post have stated that these other vehicles would just get onto of their bumpers and ride them to provoke a race. Is this the case with some of you?

Now my concern is that I am not big into street racing, though that’s a side point. For me, this car will be a nice big powerful family car that daddy drives. It’s 4 doors, and will have two safety seats in the back. This is where my concern begins, having my little ones with me and some @$$ on my bumper trying to provoke a race.

So with this in mind, have you married guys with the back seat passengers (little ones) experienced this problem? If so how did you deal with the issue? I think the solution to my problem is to just carry a pen and paper to write tags and or possibly my radio to call in an air strike. That way, I can deal with the problem in my own little way.

On a side note, if this occurs on either I575 or I75 during non peak times and no little ones, then I am clear on the solution to the problem.

On the way to work this morning an EVO wanted to play, we didn't have any room which is good because he would have smoked me.

I really don't believe you'd put your kids life in danger by racing the ricer...

I'm with BoB... I'd just wave the ricer pass and let him think he got the best... its not worth the ticket, loss of license and possible losing your vehicle to the police officer.

Just don't want to see alot of undercover police chargers on the streets :p

when some a$$ is on your tail.... slow down :p .. that really gets their blood pumping.... if you're on the highway.... use your wipers and clean the windshield.... they'll catch alot of spray that way...

You can always do the 007 mod of dumping nails, explosive devices or oil slicks.... (i'm drawing up the plans atm... :p)

I get challenged by a lot of chevy trucks as well. I dont think its a competition race, so much - its not even close. I think they are moer curious than anything as to what hood's contents can do.

I've also noticed that as I've tried to provoke a few mustangs, NONE of them have taken me up on it yet.. wusses.

In my openion, most of the rice grinders are like a poodles wearing a spiked collar, they make a lot of noise but kick it once and they will run away!

There was a mod that used a liquid (don't remember if it was water or what it was) and it gets shot out the exhaust tips. As the cool liquid hits the hot exhuast tips, a cloud would form. That'd be one way to deal with them....

I will try to find that kit again...

I am personalyl a fan of the fire kit that shoots fire out of the exhaust.. I saw a erally cool job where the exhaust was fed out of the 2 tail lights, and when the fire was trgigered, the fire shot out of both th tail lights like afterburners.. HOT! :)

Back in high school, a guy ran an extra line from his windshield washer (fluid) line all the way to the back of his car, and ran it our by the liscense plate. That way, whenever he hit the windshield washer/wipers, he would shoot a stream of water out the rear.

You know, it's not really so surprising that Charger owners are being provoked. I'm sure you've all seen the ads of the Charger R/T racing a rail at the drag strip..... :whistle:

Well DutchMaster, you posted the idea first, you got your kit on order ?

If you've ever seen those tail pipe flamers in action they are really cool....

I thought about a kit for my Grand Prix but it's so loud and the radical cam scares of just about anything on the street anyway.... Even if they are foolish enough to play, once I jump them about 3 or 4 cars of the line and are still pulling away the know they are done..... 450hp in a 3200lb car with 3.73 rear does the trick pretty well....
