    Lost to a VW bug turbo

    Of course, I didn't push it and shifted at 3500 rpms cuz I'm still in bizarro break in time. Actually, he raced me but I just drove like normal. But I have a feeling my friend is gonna raz me about it.

    Shall I talk **** and tell him to wait until I hit 1000 miles or act all demure and embarrassed and THEN blast him away at 1000 miles?

    How do I play this for maximum smack-downage?

    im sure flooring it for 10 seconds wont hurt your engine, i just wouldnt do it a lot...tell your friend your in break in, and tell him/her itll go faster after 1000, then kick the bugs ass

    Yes, I am a woman and I love fast cars. Thing is, I wouldn't look twice at the Rex 3 months ago, but after doing some research and coming here and discovering the WRX cult, I decided to give it a test drive. Sold!

    I wasn't even trying to beat him. A guy who drives a green bug with a plastic rose in the bud vase who DOESN'T EVEN KNOW HIS CAR IS TURBO deserves a false sense of security.

    I'm babying my engine right now. I'm sorta aggressive when driving, believe me. I don't think I ever shifted below 5K rpm in my Integra. I just want my Rex to last so I can mod it post warranty.

    I think I'll go the "aww shucks" route.

    My suggestion: Wait until you hit 1K then tell your friend that you are going to do X cool thing at X cool place. Make sure that X cool place is kind of far away with some nice twisties included in the drive there. Most importantly, make sure that your friend has no idea where X place is.

    Invite your friend to come along and have him or her (I can't remember the gender) follow you there. When you hit the twisties be sure to lay on the gas and lose your friend. Next time you see him or her ask what happened to you? I just looked in my rearview and you were gone...

    Just kidding of course, but it would be funny.

    By the way, girls who love speed kick a$$. I married one and couldn't be happier.

    Happy Payback.
