Okay, this is the first post I've written in wrx vs the world, albeit because I dont have a wrx and because up until now had never raced with one. Anyways I'll do my best. This just happened about 45 minutes ago and I figured while it's still fresh in my head Id post.
On mcknight rd outside of pittsburgh I was cruising along when some bmw 3 series w/ some punk kids came out and almost stopped in the middle of my lane so I swerved around and angrily revved my engine(I know like that's gonna do anything). Well much to my dismay a bug eyes wrb wrx is about to turn onto the road at the light ahead. I think to myself I really hope he doesnt think I was revving at him, because I know he'd hand it to me. A few lights up and I see bugeyes right on my bumper so I think what the heck its all in fun. We get through a few lights flooring it some, but traffic was all around us. Finally it opened up ahead and we both gunned it with I believe the wrx jumping a little ( mind you no awd launch) and I was in pursuit up a hill with absolutely no traffic. We took it up to a little over the century mark til right before the crest of the hill with neither of us seeming to gain much ground.(Mind you I'm a steady few car lengths back...so dont think that I'm up next to him). I then roll next to him at the bottom of the hill and we punch it again with him leading off a bit but then when we ran into traffic up ahead. He then exited and I waved and beeped and he beeped in return. Not a crazy good race, but it was a fun time against a car that I wish I had. I cant even imagine how horrible it would've been if he was able to launch at any point . Regardless, wrx's will always get my love and respect!
