    So a quarter ton less and got his a** waxed with all the technology of a mechanical secondary 4 barrel. I'll take it.... ;) :) :p

    That stuff goes a long way, and I've seen subies that'd f my world up, but as I said, he messed with the wrong one and got the horns. It ain't the end all do all, but in this instance, this one got bit. :eek:

    Maybe next time. Unless maybe the spray is on..... :eek:

    I can not wait till spring when Dusty get to be legal in the street
    He is a retired 1/4 mile runner, and he wants to stretch his wheels and I do not let him. I have been challenged, but I refused. I'm scared of what he would do. But guys I love to imagine all this new cars in the rear view mirror as ya'll leave them behind.

    Last night on the way home from an out of town show a kid in a loud ricer pulls up next to me at a light revving his obnoxious little fart can muffler in my window. He gives it hell taking off on the green. I lay into the Riv just enough to stay by his door, Shes not even breathing hard. He finally winds it into 4th gear. Then I drop into second and hammer the beast. It was like he was standing still. Pulled 4-5 car lengths on him back into D and foot off the loud peddle. Then comes the ricer fly by......... Sorta felt bad for the little guy.

    Are you sure it was an STi?

    Lots of people mistakenly take a standard WRX for an STi...especially when they add an STi rear spoiler...

    Here in Switzerland it's all soon as I hit the street with the GS BMW's are sticking to my's probably the spoiler wich activates some kind of urge in them to race...

    I often find myself going even slower then...wich really pisses them off...

    The STI is not made for straight line performance...but the guys driving those things don't get it's nice that this guy had it's lesson learned :) :TU:

    I stopped short of checking the vin, but he had the badging as well for whatever that's worth.

    Boy got his Subie back today. Mom and I drove him down to pick it up and I rode back with him home.

    All I can say is WOW!!! This thing is stupid fast. The engine builder took him aside and had a "man to man" with him. Total respect for the builder, total. Of course, mom is scared to death it will get away from him and it could very, very easily. He's a smart kid. He will be fine. Has a very level head on his shoulders. But saying all of that...Dad still had a talk with him too. He understands the consequences and just how fast it can get away from him. He will be 26 in February, so at least he has some experience in life.

    I have NEVER been in anything this quick/fast. NEVER. He's not taken it beyond 5000 rpm as it's all fresh and everything. Just breathing on it and short shifting, we saw 100 in a blink. The weak link (fuse??) is the transmission. Can not hammer and bang gears. I'm just as happy he rebuilt the stock 5 speed and didn't upgrade the transmission. Like I said, it's the fuse in the combination.

    Good kill Shawn!!!!!!!!!!!

    Had an STI think he could hold off my blown Mustang as I passed him on a two lane country road. Just trying to ease by at 55 mph no biggie when he downshifts. By the time he spooled I was already in third as his head snapped over when he heard the blower whine. See ya dude liked he pulled a parachute.
