First, don't talk down to me like I am some high school kid looking for kicks. I am every bit as educated as you are. You don't know me, so don't go assuming. You know what they say when you assume right?Originally posted by Scott n Houston
Sigh... the incredible lack of understanding...
Let me make this clear.
First of all, I don't really care about any of the results. You are the one who said the crappy SRT4 beat "my beloved Porsche" when in fact it lost to 2 of them. 4th and 5th place are Porsches clueless. Ruf is an aftermarket tuner of Porsches. 996 is the current model 911 btw....
I know exactly what the test is. My point is a single point of 'victory' means nothing. It's just one test and one "win". It's not a representative sample to take any data from... but you wouldn't understand that I don't think. Look up a statistics class if you get to college. (not to mention... who knows who's driving these different cars... so it finished ahead of some Porsches.... that doesn't mean jack. I've witnessed Miatas passing Porsches at the track because it's "the driver". And the regular 911 beat a turbo... that should tell you something about a single point of data. Should I now say, the regular 911 is better? lol)
You're the 4 banger equivalent of the V8 mullet head. You fail to evaluate all the pieces of the equation before making a conclusion. In your little world "SRT4 beat a Porsche... SRT4 is therefore a great car."
I'm sorry you have a problem with 'yuppies' like me. LOL
Is that an insult? Oh no! He called me a young urban professional! Oh the horror! I'm educated, have a career, and make a good living. What am I going to do with that insult? I'm so hurt.
The fact is, I have a lot more track experience than you. I'm guessing by your cluelessness I'm a bit older than you, and I am also guessing by your myopic view points that I have a lot more general car knowledge than you.
You let your bias blind you from the point that the SRT4 is not a great car. It's "ok" and that's it. It's a weak platform and it's limited by the FWD drivetrain. That was the whole basis of my original post before you began the diarrhea of the mouth about the SRT4 being so great because it had an ok showing in one ‘test’ then after you stated it beat "my beloved Porsche" which I never even mentioned in this thread of comparison between the WRX and the SRT4.
Lastly, I have a truly unbiased opinion here, so I was just sharing. I still stand by it. The WRX is a far superior car and platform and the SRT4 is limited to mediocrity because of its FWD platform. Sorry you happen to own the lesser of the 2 cars and take offense.
I never said the SRT-4 is the end all of compact cars, but it does deserve more credit than you care to offer it. So, according to you, is it safe to say that EVERY FWD car is crappy and not race worthy? I'm not sure why you keep dragging the WRX into this. Like I said, it's a great car.
I think what you're trying to tell me is that you're not skilled enough to race a FWD, therefore they are crap. Hell, you're not skilled enough to drive that Porsche you got. (I've seen your track vids)
Yea, you got me though. You have the ultimate knowledge of cars. What's your address so I can mail you a cookie?
Puuuuhlease, you probably don't even change your own oil because your to good for that.
