    HAHA! I had some guy last night swear to me they made flat sixes in WRX's. To the best of my knowledge they don't make those.

    What do you think of your helix downpipe? Is it catted?

    Can't remember who said this before, but people REALLY under-estimate the power that the Dub (my slang for WRX) has! I let people get a head then the car gets out of the turbo lag and it's GAME OVER!

    Do keep in mind the same is also true for the GTP this thread was about. It is fun to have a sleeper though, isn't it?

    I had a GTP do a ricer flyby on me a couple weeks ago. Caught him at a redlight a couple miles up the road and toasted him. His girlfriend was in the car, too, which made it a even better kill.

    Can I assume that those of you "blowing away" people in your stock cars have the first fast-ish car you've ever owned? They're decently quick for a stock car but you've got to realize they're just on the edge of being fast. After all, even a Hyundai Azera traps 100 mph and tops out at over 145.

    You've got a good platform to begin modifications. Do a few and you'll see how much faster "fast" can be. There was a time, over 15 years ago, that I thought my GSX with a MBC just had to be the fastest thing on the streets - LOL

We stopped at the red light and went at it again for the same results.

    Love this car...

    Defintely not my first "fast" car... But I do enjoy "blowing away" 15 second cars think they're "fast."

    3) Why does your sig say you are/own an evo killer. Did you beat an Evo that was still parked or something?
    HEY HEY!!! NOT SO MEAN........OK I probably should mention that there are alot of kids around me that like to spend mommy and daddy's money but cant back it up because they dont know how to drive. The srt-4 was the best kill because the guy met me at the next light and said that he should have bought a subie instead!!! I'm aware this car should have beaten me. But it sure is great to represent 2- The Camero was packin but I did keep up in the beginning 3- My buddie owns an EVO and we kid eachother alot about our cars. Its a joke...........(note the smiley face after)

    I pulled on one EVO with stage 1 WRX TR, and got my ass handed to me by about 3 lengths by another evo.
