Some guy was with his wife and a kid in Volvo wagon riding on my butt, weaving side to side like he wants to pass. Keep in mind I was doing 60-65 on a 40 in the middle lane. The car in the left lane was doing the same speed so the Volvo could not pass. An opening came in the right lane for him when a car turned and we pulled up to a stoplight side by side. I thought no way is he going to race. Light turns green and I take off slow just waiting to see what he would do. The Volvo goes WOT so then I hit it WOT as well. So I basically had the worst start you could have in a WRX (going about 5 mph before I hit it) . Therefore, I had to play catch up. By the end of 1st gear I was maybe about 1 car length ahead. Shifted into 2nd and pulled like another 3 more car lengths on him by 70mph and was pulling hard. He stayed way back after that. I wouldn't have bothered racing him but he was driving like such an *******.
I know a Volvo kill isn't much to brag about but it was more the putting him in his place that was the satisfaction.
I looked on the Volvo website and they have 4 model ranging in hp from 168, 197 and 247. I'm guesing it was either the 168 or 197 hp model I raced.
