    WRX vs Big Wheel...street race...IT WAS ON!!

    Okay, so I was driving home last night and up ahead I saw this kid riding a "Power Rangers" big wheel on the sidewalk. As I closed in, the light turned red and we both stopped. He re-tied his shoelace, which was starting to come undone, and I took that as a sign that he wanted a piece of the WRX. I gave him "the look" and revved my engine. He looked back at me with a confused look - I bet he was confused because he didn't know the WRX and the power it has - he had no idea what he was up against. I revved again and the kid just stared blankly at me. Waiting for the light to turn green, I pressed the gas to hold it at 5000 rpm and feathered the clutch until it was just on the edge of the friction zone. Palms sweating and heart racing, I was ready. The light turned green and I hammered a perfect launch, chirping the tires in 1st gear. I immediately gained at least 10 car lengths on him. Then I shifted into 2nd. By the time I got into 3rd gear, I coud barely see him in my rear view mirror. I pulled over and waited for him to catch up, then I rolled down the passenger window and yelled to him "Yeeeah! I SMOKED your azz! Do you have any mods on that thing? Hope not, cause it would have been a big waste of money. I know your mom isn't that slow - at least last night she wasn't. Hahaha see ya round, suka!" Then I peeled off, spraying the kid with the sand and gravel along the side of the street.

    Laugh now, but once you strap a lightened flywheel and a new organic clutch on those things, your AWD launch will have NOTHING on him. 0% drivetrain loss, inverted intake manifold, and a bowl of wheaties will leave you wondering wtf happened to YOUR precious car.

    It seems obvious he wasnt racing you. Otherwise you wouldnt be posting this kill story. Those Big Wheels turn out 12 second down the driveway runs. You were lucky.

    Your car can't touch his power to weight ratio. Big Wheels are 100% polymer composite!11!1

    And the handling is...well...almost like there's a direct link between your hands and the steering.
