    Hyundai Scares WRX

    So I'm leaving my job at the Quickimart in my new ride, a Hyundai Accent. I'm a player, so I went with the GT Hatchback model. It's Dope.

    Anyway, it's heavily modded. I got 3 "Type R" stickers (on both rear windows and the tail), plus a "Mopar or No Car" tint strip on the front window. These mods alone probably net me 10hp and decrease my drag. The car comes with 14" wheels stock, but I went with the optional 13" wheels with plastic covers to reduce the unsprung weight.

    So here's the dilio. I see this black WRX at the light ahead and pull up beside him. I'm not sure if he wants to race but then one of the three girls in his car gives me a wink and I know it is "game on". (Actually, maybe she was squinting because the sun was in her eyes, but by now I'm in race mode so it's too late).

    The light turns green and I'm off the line like a pro. I look back and the WRX has barely moved. The driver is looking down, perhaps in disbelief...... or maybe he was changing his radio station, I'm not sure.

    Anyway, I wind it way out to redline and jam the stick into second at around 15mph. 4 or 5 seconds later I'm already up to 40 mph and can't even see the WRX behind me.

    I look up and he's a few car lengths in front of me.

    Now taking advantage of me when I was clearly looking in the rearview is a pretty cheap move if you ask me, but then I slip it into my power gear (3rd).

    I can see he's pretty scared now because he keep running away from me further and further. After only a 1/2 mile or so I see him put on his brakes signifying that he knows the match is over.

    I'm not letting him off that easy, so at 55 mph I slam the stick into 4th and blow by him doing 60 mph. Just to let him know that I'm the King, I don't even look over, but do give him the finger after I pass him. He must be too scared to acknowledge the loss as he quickly pulls into Pizza Hut.

    So, another day, another kill. Once I get the big wing on the back I'll be out looking for some STI's to smack down.

    This sounds like my old '83 subie gl-10. That thing couldn't even get out of it's own way.
