    20g '04 FXT vs C6 Corvette - 60 mph roll on

    Well, on Friday I just got my latest Subaru (I've had 7 turbo Subaru's now lol).

    This one is my new winter vehicle (replacing my '98 Outback), an '04 Forester XT w/20g, putting down 340 whp on pump (20g turbo, supporting mods). Anyway, Sunday night around 10 PM I was driving home from work, and encountered a C6 Corvette with zero traffic around us. I came up on him, and moved into the fast lane. As I was coming up on him from ~60 mph, I noticed he started accelerating, holding me off. I figured what the heck , and I downshifted and went for it. He also went WOT and I proceeded to ever so slowly walk by him. I was pretty happy to pull him, considering the C6 is no slouch in stock form. The best part was, after I passed him (I will not discuss our speed at that point, lol), a light up ahead changed, and while we sat at the light for a minute, he got a good look at the SUBARU rear end of my car, lol. I always love teaching someone respect for Subarus

    Anyway, it's my first "kill" so to speak in the latest Scooby, so just wanted to post.

    Man that's awesome, talking about knocking someone off his high horse. Not that all Corvette drivers are on high horses...but I'll bet he didn't see that coming!

    I took a bunch of pics when I picked it up last week from the shipping truck, but have yet to upload them to my PC. Here's a few shots from previous owner. Yes, it now has HID conversion. I'm sure that only further confused the Vette owner, lol...

    Is this the Forester that was discussed alot on nasioc? There was a black one with black rims and a polished lip that had a 20g and was putting down crazy numbers. Wonder if you bought that one? Anyways nice run. suprised to hear that a guy driving a vette even raced you. Hell most vette owners around here are all cotton tops driving a z06 at 50 mph in the fast lane.

    Nice to see a fellow FXT owner lay the smack on a new C6. How's that tranny holding up (or are they PPGs)?
