Oh I know, this is *such* an exciting race...I'm sure you've all been just dying to see one turn up here.
Anyway, I'm driving down 2nd and watch this ******* cabbie go straight from a turning lane almost causing a three car accident. At the next light there are two lanes, and he's on the left. Hell, why not just piss this idiot off.
I jump into the right lane and line up with him, and he looks at me and gets ready to jump off the light. I've never launched the WRX before, so as the light turned green I just rev'd up and slipped the clutch out quickly, no idea what rpm I was at.
Wow was that fun. Never felt such sudden movement from a car at a standstill, unless it was being rearended. Truly impressive. Don't think I'll be doing that too often, probably almost never. I love the car for its surgical precision and wonderful driving, not launching off red lights like slung shot and having to fork over cash for new transmission parts.
Oh yeah, I was racing a cab right? Well, you know what happened.
