I don't usually race in the streets...but the other day while waiting at a red light, a Camry with a young female driver with a passenger (also female) pulled up next to me.

BTW...I have nothing against female drivers.

As soon as the lights turned green, for some reason, she floored the pedal and I did the same. I ended up dusting the Camry because it couldn't keep up after a couple of lights. I think the Camry is a four banger.

Why do other drivers (in this case a female) disrespected an Altima?

I gave no previous indication that I wanted to race from light to light with the Camry.

My Altima has no stickers and does not have the typical "rice" Honda look.

Anybody have the same type of experience?

I don't advocate racing in the streets or highways because it can cause accidents.

I think it is the driver that wins races not the car. Though this type of thinking doesn't always win races.

You may not have a chance with a stock Altima vs a V6 Camry.

My Altima only has a WAI and an OBX muffler and I don't think I catch some of the inline 4s or V6s out there.

Maybe from light to light...

I lost to a V6 Camry a couple of weeks ago. I've got an auto with OBX/Hiper Industries WAI. It'll be easy to take out four banger Accords and Camrys (Camries??). I'll leave the V6's to the Maxima and Altima 3.5SE's...

Your right Ry...I'll leave that job of beating the V6s to our big Maxima and 3.5 Altima brothers!

I usually get challenged by chicks in slusbox civics and tegs with stickers and altezzas. I'd spank them all if they weren't girls.

what's wrong w/a camry racing you? Don't u pick on cars not in your class? I tend to go for the big yuppies...v6 Passats, v6 Accords, Maximas, GTP's, etc...I don't always win, but I don't always lose.

V8 and my dad goes between Demos...he has a 2000 or 1999 Dodge Dakota 4dr.. i like imports better : ) (sorry for the family story :D )

I've never seen a modified Camry with performance parts.

Camrys are just plan reliable family four door cars. Even the name of the car sounds boring!

So what people say the same about our altimas. A camry can be just as potent as a maxima. I've driven a red 5-speed V-6 camry 2-door and it felt like a real sports car (except for the sloppy stock struts). I still wish someone else didn't beat me to it.

You guy have never seen a decked out Camry?

Either your looking in the wrong place, or I'm looking in all the right ones.

Whenever I travel I-80 in NJ, I see them. I've seen some with like 18 in white painted rims :barf:. I've seen some w/loud mufflers and with ghetto tinted windows. Whenever I go by Newark, I see them all the time...maybe they have a club there or something

Btw, most of them (I think all that I have seen actually) are the older models (the 93+ models).
