was heading to my car and I saw a white Subaru WRX STi go by in the parking lot. I got in my car and oddly enough it was going the same way I was going. It even turned left on Wilbur which is the street I take. I decide to see if they guy wants to just whoop my ass and make me smile so I go by him. We both get to a red light and I'm just sitting there. I'm thinking he's not biting and he's just your average snob guy here who has a high performance car but won't let loose even if no one is around and we have a long stretch of empty road ahead of us.

Vrooom... Vrooom....

Ah crap, he starts reving his engine a little as the light pauses a few seconds before it turns green. When it hits green, my car launches off the line as fast as it can, but the sound of the turbo spoiling up and pushing the car into full throttle send the STi flying past me like I never moved from my spot. I laughed and smiled, I knew my 190hp V6 Mustang was no where near competition to this 300hp turbo'd 4cyl. I came up next to him and we both slowed down a bit to like.. 15-10mph. I told him I loved how his car sounds, asked if he has done any upgrades to the car. He said just the exhaust was changed out. Meanwhile his girl friend in the passenger seat leaned up to get a look at me. I told him I love the STi's, gorgeous cars. He said he was going to get it Dyno'd this week at a local shop. We then took off, we were by each other for a couple more lights, he let me have a good 2-3 second head start then he'd fly by me lol It was all in good fun, we were smiling and enjoying ourselves.

It was really cool. That's what it is all about, no grudge racing or anything. Nothing like, "Hey dude if I had a super charger I could totally have whooped you and your shitty car." No trash talk, just people and their cars after work. We never got higher than 50mph, race never lasted that long :p

That's cool, wish anyone over here would race me just for the hell of it. Guess the Mustang scares them too much over here.

There are tons of STi's around this area. A few EVO VIII's, but you don't see them much during the day. I normally see a bunch at night, and most of the Evo drivers dont' do anything.

I raced a wrx sti on the interestate and I didn't even know! (seriously lol)

I am on the phone and I pass the guy in the left lane doing 80.. pull over in front of him... well i am looking in my rear view mirror at him because I knew it was a sti and I know how most of those guys around here are.... as soon as I pulled over in front of him he slung over in the left lane and rode beside me for 30 seconds waiting on me to do something... this is at 9:30 at night mind you with me on the phone. i don't want to race this guy for starters but apparently he wants to so i just floor it for about 5 seconds and let off as he goes by me at least 110 ... I was pushing 95 when he flew past me.

Well I was hoping there was a cop up ahead because it goes from 65 > 45 real fast and they just love to sit there and write tickets all day... but no luck :cry:

nah most the people i know are edumacated on the sounds of engines, so much that we can tell a 5.0 from a 4.6 a half block away, tell if its a 1.8l or 1.6 honda, and tell if it has vtec before they even come by. he knew you were a 6er. but knowing the subbie guys hes gonna go back and say he spanked a gt.

i wish more people could be like that. my freind raced a newer saleen on the freeway a week ago and got him by a few cars. i tried to get the saleen guy to race me(me and my freind have the same mods) and he wouldnt even look our way. so we were just driving and he puts on his blinker and has it on for a really long time, then merges off, so i follow. i get next to him and he just gives me this stare(big mexican guy, thought he was tough ****) i rolled down the window and said "dude that thing sounds sick, follow me to chilis" cause that was on the road and i wanted to know if he had anything done. so he nods and were driving, then all of a sudden he drops it into 2nd and looks at me. im like fine you want to act tough, i can act tough too and i drop it into 2nd flick the switch and we go at it, end of 2nd im already a car ahead, hit 3rd pull a car more. so i slow down and he gets behind me, i go to pull into chillis and he flies out from behind me, revs it, drops the clutch, does a nice spin and gets a little sideways and takes off. guess he didnt like small talk.

oh and my freind taped their race on the freeway. i wish the guy wasnt such an ass cause i wanted to check out his car and make sure it was a real saleen, cause it was definately a 4.6 and had a saleen kit and badges.

Why bother buying an expensive car if you aren't going to let loose sometimes?

link isn't working for me either Eclipse
