    WRX vs. Firebird

    So I pull up to a red light and there is a new looking black Firebird there. I hear, "Hey, hey!!" I look over to find someone crammed behind the drivers seat sticking his head out the window. Then he continues to yell obnoxiously, "You want some of this?? You want a piece of this??" I laugh at him and say, "sure."

    We launch when the light turns green and that was all I needed. Nailed him off the line and kept slowly pulling on him the entire time up to about 110 mph when we shut down. He was a few car lengths back by that time. He was revving pretty hard too and had a nice launch... almost no spin. I thought he might take me, I really dont know much about Firebirds. But I guess I was wrong. I wanted to see what his buddy in the back seat had to say after that, but of course, they turned off and went a different way. Just thought I'd share.

    Nice!! Looks like we're both beating up on Firebirds. My only real mod is a TXS Turboback exhaust, not nearly as much as you. But it looks like our cars had no problem!

    Good Kill. I'm assuming that you raced a V6 Firebird then if you kept him behind you up to 110? What year was the car?

    Nice kill! It had to have been a V6 bird, no doubt. If it was a Formula or T/A, you would have gotten walked like a dog.
    I'm glad you put this guy in his place though - if he was only packing a V6, he should have known better than to mess with a Rex.
