    3000gt

    now that i've crossed the 1000 mile mark, it's fun time.

    this morning, i was behind a 3000GT (sl model, no less), on an entrance ramp to the highway. i wasn't pushing him - truth be known, i ignored what i consider a slow, heavy car. anyway, he takes off like a bat out of hell, squealing throughout the entire ramp; i thought he'd lose it, so i stayed with him (not hard) but back a bit. came to the h'way, and he took off, so i followed, and basically made it look like he put it into reverse. few min later he comes back to me at a light and gives me the finger, saying "your car was probably just fast today - it won't always be that way." HUH?

    actually, in retrospect, he's right; it'll be faster.

    "sl" stands for "slow." You can apply that to both the car AND the driver.

    i know it wasn't much compeition - as jennifer so eloquently put it, the SL stands for SLow. point was, he ran, so i ran him down and yes, he was trying to tell me that i was number one, and then started the yelling about how my car was only fast that day. odd. it's not even like it was cool out, mid-80's and humid.

    VR-4's can be quick, but off the line, they're no match for a WRX. I raced one with DR650's and from a roll it was goodnight for me. From a stop, however, I would continually take the guy up to about 80. They really can't launch as hard as a WRX even with AWD. The added weight is a huge disadvantage for the VR-4.

    SL's are just useless lumps of crap haha.

    and, keep in mind, it wasn't just a WRX that was chasing him.

    I had no problems hanging with a VR4 this morning. My first cat & mouse with the AccessECU stage 2 installed.

    No place to really open up for a proper run, but he tried to get away a couple of times (to around 80) and I just stuck behind him. Pretty loud exhausts on those things. Easy to tell he was trying.

    Sti vs. 3000gt SL = why even waste your gas money?

    I guess when one has to wait 1000miles to "properly" drive their car, anything looks tempting

    But seriously, SL? Jeez, go pick on some Corolla's while you're at it J/K of course...

    as i said, i was ignoring him until he decided to get away from me. couldn't let him think he'd get away from me, could i? then on the 3000GT SL forum, he'd post "smoked an STi today!"
