    WRX in Jersey

    hey guys I know this is either my first or one of my first posts here

    I see lots of WRXs around, but I was wondering if anyone is in the central jersey area that would want to meet up sometime, track or street(long as its safe) for a friendly race and maybe just hang out and talk about cars and ****

    I havent really raced a WRX before, only one but it wasnt really close, Im looking to see how I would fair against guys with the stage kits and stuff

    thanks alot guys

    and awesome little cars

    You don't happen to work in North Brunswick or belong to Ricochet Racket Club in S. Plainfield do you? I see Grand Nationals at those tow places all the time.

    Hey, I'm in North Brunswick. I'd love to meet up sometime. I have a friend who had a Buick Regal T-Type and I really got into the GN/GNX. Great cars. Drop me a PM if you wanna meet up sometime for a run and some chitchat.

    hey I noticed in another post you stated you lived very close to the awd dyno in bound brook
    I live in raritan

    by any chance is your car silver? or blue

    I have seen a blue one and beat him in a roll on race

    but the silver one I never raced
    he has what seems like lots of mods and HID lights (very bright)

    any of them you?

    thanks

    I have never dared to race a GN as I am not much faster than stock. From a stop I would give it a shot, but no way from a roll.

    we are better from a stop believe it or not

    its all the torque and low revs down low

    not sure if you guys knew this or not, my redline is 4800RPMS
    max torque is under 2K RPMs and max HP is around 4K

    Sean Penns car (a Buick Grand National) was recently in the news because it got stolen in San Fransisco while he was having lunch.
    Everyone is extra freaked because he had two guns in the trunk.

    I should have said "You're the guy that stole Sean Penn's car aren't you?"
    Kinda obscure I guess.
