    Talking Slow-@ss trying to beat a WRX ?!

    Yesterday as I was driving home in my WRX (see avatar), I passed this beater pickup truck giving off some weird smoke. Stank real bad because I could smell it before I passed him, even with windows up and vents off. Could see it too, grey-blue colored.

    So I eventually pull up to a red light. It's three lanes now, but only 100 ft ahead it merges to two. So he pulls up next to me, in the lane that's going to end. I had an odd feeling he might try to beat me. But I didn't know for sure, he didn't rev or anything like that. In any case, I wasn't going to let him pass me because of all his stinkin' smoke.

    As soon as the light turned green, he must have floored it. Caught me by surprise. So he was actually slightly ahead of me for the first two seconds. I took it up to 6K RPM (which I don't often do), and by the time I hit 2nd gear and in boost range, he was history. So he had to merge in behind me, and I could see in my mirror his truck's weird smoke behind him.

    What was he thinking? Would someone be stupid enough to take the passing lane and try to beat a Rex in a freakin crappy junk?

    My motto: If ya can't beat him, don't try. $.02

    He obviously didn't observe Homer Simpson's rule:

    But I still have plenty of love for Subaru.

    Some guy tried to do the same to me (no smoke though) with his nissan frontier. I thought he was joking, but I saw the supercharged badge on the side and knew he was serious. Well, he tried, failed badly, and stayed behind. I guess he's proud of driving one of the weakest supercharged 3.3L truck.

    Well, in his defense (somewhat ) how many of you have tried to race a viper, ferrari, porsche, or any other exotic you encounter on the road just for kicks?

    Maybe he thinks you have a supa dupa sports cah!

    Or, he wanted you to get high on some fumes

    When driving my STi, people do that all the time. Some old Cavalier or Stratus or truck will yank into the other lane to try and go around me when the light turns green. Light changes, I shift at 3500-4500 RPM with maybe half throttle and watch them disappear behind me.

    Re: haha

    I would never drive an SUV or pickup, even if my life depended on it, which it does... I drove my sisters pathfinder while my old car was in the shop and i almost flipped it. I HATE big cars.
