    fast is a blast

    Well anytime I feel the need to kick butt, I put the WRX away and crank up the 95 VR4, when the WRX is out of steam the VR4 is just starting. The problem is the VR4 looks fast the WRX has a granny look, get tickets in the VR and just looks in the WRX.
    I hope they bring in the sti, will give that baby a run, from what I read should be a blast. I have little doubt it will put away my VR4
    My only complaint is the car starting cold, sounds like a tank with a blown engine.

    heard that about the 95 VR4!!!haha I have a 93 Stealth TT and was readin the WRX lack of top end speed. Your right, thats when the VR4/Stealth comes alive. Great little cars those WRX's tho, great site you got here. I wish I could put my Stealth on Jenny Craig and make her lose a few pounds to match the weight of a Rex

    Yo

    By reading your signature line it seems you've done more cosmetic mods than performance mods. I agree w/ the posting above to go w/ the Uppipe & downpipe then MBC & guages. Sotck for stock I raced my brother S2000 on the hwy from 40-100 and he'd pull on my like I was standing still ... not too fast by fast enough to see him walk away. Well after the MBC and Uppipe was as keeping up w/ him no problem and even pulling on him my 1/4-1/2 car length by 100mph. Well now than I have the downpipe and Cat back ( louder must be faster ) I'm sure I'll walk away from him on the hwy ... and I sure I will. I told him I wanna race again when he has a chance. The 2 group of mods I mentioned were the best combo and if you can do both group at once $1500 or $1000 w/out the Cat Back then you'll be pulling on people NOT just at the stoplight.

    Yup

    I live in Marietta, Ga ... you can distinguish me as the Asian guy who drives a red WRX w/ a roof rack. Yes I mountain bike so you may see my yellow bike on my roof somedays. I just held a local get together at my place and the final people of the group just left. It was a blast.

    The 1998 and 1999 Maxima had 190 horse. Still a really nice car and plenty of power.

    Yeah, I'm sorry for that, it was kind of harsh. But seriously... a Maxima?

    Maximas are good cars...lots more top end with an extra 2 cylinders and more displacement. I lost in the top-end, whoopy-doo...I shouldn't have been driving 115 in the first place. I don't feel bad, why should anyone else? That's all I'm going to say...after all, do onto others...
