Well, my first post in the WRX Vs. world and it's a tie..too bad..While travelling to Columbus ,GA. to pick up my girlfriend, I got behind a guy and his girl in a new 3.5 Altima while on ALT. 27 between Newnan and Carollton. We were both behind an 18 wheeler and as the road turned to a 2 lane, he punched it. I was not really trying to race but decided to follow him around. I got into 3rd gear (we were going about 45) and got on it. I reeled him in about the point the 2 lane became 1 lane again so I'm not sure if he slowed or not. Anyway, I passed him about 2 miles later with no drama to speak of. He was cruising too slow for me simple as that. We come into Newnan and get behind slow traffic again in a one lane. Just as the road splits into 2 he rushed up my back end and tried to go around me on the right (into the new lane that was opening up). No way I thought so I got on it in 2nd gear (we were going about 20 mph this time) and went for it. The 2nd lane lasted about a half mile and the whole time, dude was on my ass. I mean ON MY ASS and I had my rex pegged for all it was worth. No cars around, right lane hitting about 120 and he was right with me. I think he could have passed if he really wanted. So who else has dealt with one of these cars? I can drive my car rather well so it wasn't driver error and I have no idea if his car was stock or not. Anyone?
