    These cars are to dangerous

    if you dont pay attention to your speedometer, you will be flying fast. For example i was going to fast and brake hard then I had to drift into my turn near a ditch. and i mean i was scared bc this is a 2 day year old car since i just bought it..

    anyone have any near accident calls?

    forget about that drift thing, the most annoying thing about these car is tat the are fast! and i have to keep constantly checking my speedo in the city, its 25mph but in second its already 30-35mph you know..

    One of these days.. a piggy is going to pull me over just cuz im in third gear!

    if a cop pulls you over you can tell him that your turbo spooled at 12mph and everything in the world turned into a blur, and the only thing you could see ahead of you was an SRT4.
    I dont redline every gear, im just saying im not use to all this AWD torque.. its not like a honda (no torque)

    2000 Honda Civic SI

    Red light, he pointed to the lights, I nodded and laugh out loud to myself! Perfect launch at 4500rpm smooth shift to second (learn not to drop the clutch). Pull him about 4-6 cars lenght within 2 blocks!

    I hate the WRX, to slow .. need more power

    so I raced a Supercharged V8 Regal. twice the size of my motor. I pulled him 1 car lenght for 1st and 2nd gear, then on 3rd he pull in front of me by at least 5ft. I lost and I learned that.. wrx is to slow....NEED MORE POWER...!

    its good that I lost though, my ego was destroyed but now I have an excuse to spend my hard earn money.

    I'm not familiar with any V8 supercharged Buicks. Are you talking about the Buick Regal GS V6 supercharged?

    They can be quite fast when modded, I used to own the Grand Prix equivalent.
    06 GTO - yeah, it's pretty quick
    Grand Prix GTP-gone

    I didn't think much about the regal until we were racing and I heard his supercharger sucking in air.. I heard my turbo spooling but his turbo was spooling hard...I was like.. ****.. im ****ed.. but by only 5-6ft. only.. not bad.

    Very true. That's when you throw some turns into the race.. where it usually comes to driver skill

    Tell me about it man. The WRX isnt the end all be all of cars, but to call it slow? Thats crazy, just drive a stock 00-05 Eclipse, or a stock pre 06 Civic, that is slow. Of course you are going to lose to a V6-V8 supercharged car 95% of the time when you are totally stock. Just be glad you kept up with him. For a car with half the size of normal sports car motors I think it does alright. Just take the Buick through a few turns, thats when the Symmetrical AWD shines
