    He acted immaturely, but that was after you cut him off at 100mph. Stop acting like he should sustain 100% of the blame here. You were the idiot that put both your lives in more risk than they already were.



    Please, I don't need a lecture on how to launch a wrx.
    You are saying not to make assumptions of you not knowing much about the wrx, and then you go ahead and make the assumption I do not know how to launch.
    I put a 2002 WRX on the stock turbo into a 13.3 @ 100mph e.t. with a 1.8 60' so please do not try to tell me I dont know how to launch or a drive a wrx

    Ask anybody here that is even remotely knowledgeable about the wrx. Most wrx's driven at the track by your "everyday" drivers see much slower times than the car is capable of because of the launch. The wrx is only a mid-high 14sec car without that awd launch. Many people so those times because they don't know how to launch. and get 60' times over 2.0.
    YOU may think a wrx is easy to launch, but the fact of the matter is that most people have trouble with it at first.. more-so than your average performance car.
    Well you implied it's rather difficult to launch the car. Compared to the majority of the 2WD cars out there, it simply isn't. With a fwd drive car, you have to worry about wheel hop. You have to be precise about everything for it to grab properly. Or the car will just hop. If you burn the clutch, then you have to let off the gas in order to get traction so the tires can keep up. With RWD, you see a lot burning out and no traction. With AWD, THERE IS NO POSSIBILITY OF WHEEL HOP OR BURNING OUT. It just grabs, and you hold on. It also grabs considerably more quicker. Sorry I'm not tryin to explain to you what you already know, but still, you took a shot at me. Sidenote: My wrx stock I don't see as being a high 14 second car without AWD launch. sorry.

    yup. WRX= not easy to drive, and even harder to launch.

I should have said it has the bottom end of an sti and not claimed it was an sti engine. I knew that, it was just a rush post. Secondly, no I am not racist. I am actually half filipino and hang out with mostly azns not that that matters, just to prove a point. Thirdly, I am calling him a punk spoiled 'ricer' just to emphasize and illustrate the fact that he was this 18 year old bald azn guy that was acting like a ricer. He didn't deserve an m3, he should have had an integra. That's why I said sad day for bmw owners, because he was acting like a jackass. You guys are messed up though for not once mentioniong the fact that he wanted to pull over and 'box' me and claiming that he won when it was clear that I beat him. Lastly, it was stupid I cut him off, I don't know why I did that, especially at that speed and that close. It was kind of a quick reflex reaction because I beat an m3! In my life I have probably only cut someone off in a race like two other times, and that was when I was multiple car lengths ahead. Furthermore I didn't think I was 'cutting' him off because I looked backed twice to make sure I was clearly ahead of his front bumper holding him off steadily. I then made what seemed a safe maneuver to me. It was not. And no I wasn't drunk when I was racing.
    That's the gayest excuse i've seen from anyone yet.

    this may be a stupid question at this point of all the ranting but did the 06 come in midnight black pearl. I thought only the bugeyes came in that color and then the black changed to metallic colors.

    its a felony??? that is such overkill for something all these adults did when they were younger. its like they forget about "the muscle car era" and decide that now because its more common it should be more illegal. a felony for racing? i hope no cop presses charges on that unless someone dies, im sure you can plea bargain down otherwise every guy from age 16 to 24 is going to jail. maybe ill stay in CO....

    oh and blownblondboxerbabalicious, the sti engine is more than just a different head design. bigger turbo, intercooler for starters. and no you ask like you just want us to agree with u on one point "you guys didnt even mention the part where he wanted to box me". id have called u out too if u cut me close at 100+. there are ways to race carefully, use them.



    Focker, out.

    The wrx's feels faster than it really is simply because you get a boost surge because in this car boost hits rather hard for stock. You cannot argue data unless you have something to back it up with other than your butt-dyno opinion.

    A stock wrx will typically run 14.2-14.5 @ 94-96mph. A lot of that e.t. time can be accounted for by the launch. Look at that trap speed. Some people want to attribute that to poor gearing, or an asthmatic stock turbo, etc.. but in reality, it is not the trap speed that is off, it is the actual time... This is because it is lower than expected, due to the wrx being able to be launched in boost, like a bat out of hell.

    The wrx has traps that equate to a mid-high 14sec car, the wrx has whp that equates to a high 14sec car, and most people that have tracked their cars on a stip without a heavy awd launch get times in the mid-high 14's.
    The only thing that makes this a relative moot point is that if you theoretically take away the wrx's launch and replaced it with say..... FWD it would then make more whp and trap higher.. but the e.t. would still remain the prior figure of mid-high 14's.

    To give you an even further example:

    I took my car to the track when it was stock and didn't want to launch it on its first run of the day. With a poor launch and a 2.3 60' (similar to what a FWD car with similar power would have gotten) my car ran a 14.7
    A couple passes later with a solid 1.9 60' launch a 14.1 with the only difference in the car being the launch.

    Same thing when I had mods on my car. Poor launch but otherwise driven fine and I run a 14.2
    Nail an amazing launch with perfect hook up and a 1.8 60' and all the sudden my car is running low-mid 13's

    For you to say that the wrx is not a higher 14sec car without its launch and that it does not rely that heavily on it is simply ridiculous.
