    Got smoked by a Mazdaspeed3

    This actually happened Mothers Day weekend but what the hey...

    Driving down to see my mum on a beautiful Sunday and passed a nice looking Mazdaspeed3. He came back up next to me and I could see he had some nice mods (lots of graphics on the quarter panel).

    As luck would have it, we caught a light, but he tried to turn off beforehand. I threw up my hand, as is to say "come on...". He relented, and we lined up for an agreed upon mini-run up to 45mph. Light changed and he lost traction. I had him until, I actually tried to drive. Long story short, I bogged 1st gear.

    By the time I got my act together he was off. 2nd was sweet for me, but it was over and I admitted defeat.

    Moral: I suck and theres always someone faster ... 320whp/340wtq WRX not enough.

    Damn, always someone faster but with 320whp they're few and far between. Thank you for agreeing to shut down at 45mph, that shows more responsibility than 99% of street kill posts.

    Warner Hitachi K04, can run up to 20lbs of boost.

    I'm waiting for the 'yeah but fwd ftl' or 'you would have raped him on sand/gravel/dirt' post.

    noble death though. 320whp wrx isn't anything to underestimate-- im sure you suprise a lot of people.

    you're running a vf43 right?

    The torque steer really wasn't that bad when I drove one though. My maxima was FAR FAR worse.
