    WRX VS Every thing in the world

    I tell you what. After another close incedent tonight, I'm totally convinced that my video game skills are paying off. I've saved my own ass so many times with some almost instinctively swift move at just the right instant. Tonight I was going down the final straight before my neighborhood which is booney woods back country fun. I come around a turn and get up to about 80 when I see a little brown creature hopping up to the road. I think to myself "is that a deer?" and then "oh **** he's in the road!". By this time he's about 5 car lengths in front of me and I'm going 80mph. I ease my brakes to give him just long enough to do the always imminent "Headlight Freeze kamakazi attack" that deer are so famous for. As soon as he stops and looks at me, I'm able to cut over and squeeze between him and the edge of the road which drops off into a ditch on that side. By this point I was going about 70mph. I'm sure if I would have reacted like any other normal run of the mill driver I would have left it up to my brakes to save the day, and I also would have been feeling the wrath of a 70 mph deer collision. I've found myself in situations like this so many times involving deer, other cars and oddly placed objects on the road way. All of these situations required raw skill and a cool head to get out unscathed. And I've avoided them all so far by being able to react without even thinking about what to do first. This is what video games have done for me and my life long struggle of avoiding everything in the world as I drive my car down the road.

    See, I can agree with you partially, but I NEVER swerve for any animals. I'd rather go head on with a deer at 80mph than swerve, catch a wheel on the side of the road, and go into a ditch at 80mph.

    tcc -> has killed 2 deer and countless small animals

    polkaband -- glad to hear you made it out of there okay I can see where you're coming from with this whole video game thing. It's because of video games that I knew how to drive my MT WRX from the dealership

    Go to the main forum page and look at the column titled "moderater." Whichever one has your name is the one you moderate. That means that if some people are being ace hoes, you can edit them or delete their rude comments if necessary. You're basically a forum police officer

    EDIT: I looked for you...it's the aftermarket vendor forum
