    Cool 02 WRX vs 04 WRX on the back roads :)

    Ok so I was driving around the back roads just enjoying the last weekend of my summer tires when I run into this 04 black WRX with the stock rims on. He was heading towards me and turned really hard onto a side street so I figured what the hell either we will have some fun going through some back roads or he'll be going home. Well next thing I know Iím going from full acceleration to full on braking and reaching speeds of over 100mph and turn that couldn't be taken much faster then 45 and a few hair turns that I don't even know what speed I was going but it couldn't of been much more than 25 The events of us going balls of the wall went on for about 7 minuets and we got must of it recorded on my buddy's pda phone but the quality really sucks and doesnít give you the feel that we had in that car. Anyways the guy in front finally stopped and pulled into a driveway and gets out to talk to us. We couldn't believe that he actually lived there because we were staying with him and actually faster in a lot of the corners because I would catch right up to his bumper. The guy said he was beyond impressed that I kept up and said he wished he had his summer tires on. His car was stock except for a cobb stage 1 computer tune and my car was stock besides my tires (and my clutch is going ...) but I still kept up and even the guy agreed that hands down he couldn't shake me and he couldn't believe it because he drives that road home every day!
