    Majikman, now lets switch the situation over. Say your GF heather was in her WRX and driving down the road and some dude drives up to the side of her revving and trying to get her to race.

    Would YOU want her to be racing this kid and risking her life so that the guy racing her doesn't think she is a wuss?
    Hopefully the answer is no.

    I just do not see the point in racing on the streets. I feel that the negatives and consequences very much outweigh the positives.

    Now I do like to take a few fast turns and by no means drive like a grandma, but I certainly do not think that risking my life or innocent driver's life is worth a few cheap thrills.

    I ride Kawasakis and love to street race, especially in the twisties against sports cars. I also like to do street drags. I outrun the law whenever feasible. Smoke crack and worship Satan.

    Aren't you supposed to drive a couple hundred miles on new tires to burn off the residue left by the manufacturing process before you drive hard on them?

    as has been said, you cant know why he didnt want to race, just because you love driving and have a performance car doesnt mean you're always in the mood to race. plus, loving to drive doesnt always have to do with speed, he mighta just wanted to enjoy a relaxed cruise through some nice turns. you cant know someone well enough to call them a wuss just from passing them on a street.
    I have to agree that people shouldn't be so quick to judge. It always seems like people try to get me to drive in a "spirited manner", when my wife is in the car. That's not gonna happen. Maybe that makes me a wuss but I certainly could care less if anyone thinks so.

    This thread has been wayyyy toooooo hillllarious. It's just funny to see everyone get their panties in a knot. It was a harmless thread about how traditionally, I've always seen STI drivers drive there cars hard, and it was the first time I saw one that didn't. Typically when someone buys a STI they are enthusiasts who enjoy driving a little harder than your average 92year old grandma.

    It's funny how people took what I said out of context, I never said I wanted this guy to go 100mph around hair pin turns around mt. virginia, I was just hoping to see the guy atleast accelerate through a turn instead of accelerate into the turn and brake out of it..... I don't drive reckless at all, but I still have fun.

    And to the person who was making comments about not being able to push my car to it's potential on the street. I don't think it's a good idea to ever push a car to it's full potential, especially performance cars like ours, because once you are at it's potential you are already being dangerous. But there is still a huge gap between normal driving and it's potential, that is still safe but more fun.........

    Also, the person who was asking how I'd like for my girlfriend to drive, I'd hope she can maintain control of her vehicle, she knows how to handle herself in her WRX. I would be pissed if she pushed her car to the limits, but I would also expect her to accelerate through the turn instead of brake.

    The person who said something about my tires not being good for handling, one of the reasons I chose the nittos over bfg's or mt streets, they are not nearly as good for straight line draggin, however they are superior to any street tire for that, and they still have stiff sidewalls, and they are pretty low profile at that.... and also, for any stiffness I lost in stability, it made up for it's ability to accelerate harder exiting a turn.

    And as for the people who said I'm being an ass, I've done nothing but being disappointed in someone driving a great performing vehicle that the STI is like it's a freaking honda civic VTEC (very torqueless economy car). I think I'm just for being disappointed....
