    Wrx (0) vs. F-150 (1)

    Was behind a Ford F-150 truck, with altezza-type taillights and aftermarket muffler. There was a VW Beetle in front of the truck driving 15 mph, I guess looking for parking. At first I didn't see the beetle so I wondered why the truck was going so slow. As I steered the car left and right to see if anyone was in front of him, the beetle makes a left turn, and the truck guns it. I was in 1st gear with clutch depressed. By the time I had 1st engaged (which was about 1-1.5 sec after the truck gunned it) the truck already had a 3 car length on me. I shifted from 1st-2nd at 7k rpms and neither of us gained any ground. He didn't pull on me, I didn't pull on him. This race went for only 2 blocks before I had to make a turn. I was shocked that I didn't pull on him, but either way he got the jump on me and won. No excuses. Mad props to the truck yo!

    Btw, my car is bone stock but I have my fat arse and subwoofer which adds about 220 lbs combined

    There are many tricked out mini trucks out there. Be on the lookout for them.

    Its hard to catch some cars when they take the launch away, especially in a stock wrx.

    Agree...in that little moment of time when you're thinking about dropping the hammer they're probably already on the cam which makes it an even deeper hole to dig out of.
