    04 STi vs 99 Cobra

    Well, I guess I'll start off saying that I'm kinda sad that I didn't see a kill story in here about my car. I am posting this just to see if this guy is on ClubWRX.

    A super clean blue STi rolled up to me on the interstate the other day, and I was trying to keep it cool due to the fact that I blew out my 4.56 gears and had to put in a set of 3.08s out of a Thunderbird to get me by. Once I seen his windows roll down, I knew that he turned off his AC and was ready to rock. Poor me was only able to put it in 3rd gear @70mph due to the damn gears, and he took off. I waited for my POS to build rpms as he bangs through 2 gears. By the time I hit 130mph I only had a car or so on him. Now the funny part of the story is that while he went through like 37 gears, I was in 3rd from 70mph to 130mph.(My car sucks!) He was most likey wondering if I had a Powerglide in my car...

    If you have a blue STi with exhaust from Nebraska, thanks for the run.

    Meh, this is a sad story. The STI probably started in third or something

    Why are you a cobra driver with an "LS1 Inside" avatar? Last I heard, LS1's only came in GM vehicles...

    There is no need to prove my point. Don't worry, I too can make fun of our cars here, except I have proof, unlike you:
    http://www.1320video.com/vids/5.06Lincoln.wmv (Very end of vid has 04 STi)
    http://www.icefireracing.com/videos/cobravscobra.wmv

    I come on here expecting to have a general discussion abou this car, because by the looks of his car etc etc, I am sure he is on this forum. Of course threads are always filled by "that guy" that ruins everything...

    I have something to add, i raced a 97is cobra, could have been a 99 for all i know, he had at least exhaust, i have a cobb stage II wrx. I raced him at the track and i beat his 14.5@103mph with my 14.3@100mph. And don't go ahead saying he got a terrible run, because i did also.
    2005 WRX (Short throw shifter, lightweight pulley,STI Splitters,Tein H-Tech springs,Up/Down Pipe, ERZ Catback, Cobb Stage 2, ASA JH8 with Yokohama ES 100s) 13.680@100.46mph

    I haven't seen anyone make fun of your car.. He simply asked why do you have an LS1 avatar if you drive a FORD COBRA. You list two cars in your sig and nether are a GM or have an LS1 swap. You dodged the question for whatever reason and he called you on it.

    Sorry, the " " smiley got me thinking that it was just gonna be another bash on a Cobra.

    Why? Because LS1s pop up like flys around this area. I don't think you can drive across town without seeing at least 3 black WS6's. I'm pretty sure I've had LS1 in my avatar, sig, profile, underwear...

    I can understand that.. Sadly WRX/STi are a dime a dozen in my area. I've been thinking of picking up an 03/04 Cobra since I have only seen one in the area. I like to be different. Plus after getting smoked by that S/C Vette it's making me really think about it..
