    WRX vs. Laser

    This is one of the funniest races I have ever been in....
    I was on my way home Saturday afternoon and I saw a white Laser drive up behind me pretty fast. But I had a friend and my wife in my stock WRX so decided to turn left and go home but when I was in the left turn lane he reved when he drove by me. So my wife, of all people said "shouldn't you go get him?" WTF!? SHe is usually yelling at me not to race. SO I pulled from the left turn lane and pulled up behind him. There were 2 cars infront of him and its a 2 lane road and no passing lane yet. Lucky for me the 2 cars infront of him pulled off as we got to the passing lane and he gunned it and so did I. So I went ahead and used my left turn signal to switch lanes and pull up on him really fast and all I can here is his engine. Before I new it we were infront of him but I had not switched into his lane yet. This is where it went bad. We were going so fast and there was a truck up about 1/4 of a mile infront of us going really slow. I knew that if i merged infront of him I would have to slam on the brakes and that would make me an ass. So I just put the brakes on hard and let him go ahead to prevent one of us from hitting the truck. We also lost our passing lane. So now I am behind him and the truck and I am looking for another passing lane so I can go ahead and beat him again. But what does he do....he goes ahead and passes the truck on the double yellow on a curve. Im like forget that...I am not gonna kill people just to beat this guy again. So I just turn around and head back. The funny thing is that when I pulled infront of him during the race he was so mad and wouldn't look over. SORE LOSER! Hope I see him again.

    im not sure if these cars have turbos but it sounded like he did. When I was passing him I was sure he had one. Does anybody know anything about that car?

    Your wife rocks. Nice kill/embarassment on the POS Laser.

    what sucks is that when we were passing him my buddy tryed to give him the friendly thumbs up but he wouldn't even look over at us. He was pretty serious....and he started it by reving.

    Oh well......KIDS

    My wife is funny like that...the night we bought the WRX she raced an older integra.

    I think he meant 13k including the price of the car. If I'm not mistaken, the Laser = Eclipse = Talon

    So I'm sure they share the same engine and the same aftermarket parts..but I could be wrong.

    This weekend, I saw an eclipse, an eagle, and a laser. They all look identical. There might be variants of the laser, though - one was parked in our complex the other day and I didn't see any turbo badging...

    i meant including the cost of the car.

    build the motor and with 7k you will break the 12 second mark.

    first gens can be found for 6k.

    You don't need 7K to break 12's in th AWD models... not the FWD lasers either. MUCH less... but it's still ugly to me.

    i got my a$$ spanked by a laser when i was running stock turbo. in my defense my friend was driving an he had a horrible 1-2 shift, but other than that we hung. it was actually i guy i knew from high school, an when we pulled into a parking lot to talk, two cop cars pulled in after us. it was christmas eve, an after an hour they let us go under no penalty what so ever to my friend or myself because they didnt have us on radar an they said it was a xmas present. the were asking what we had done to our cars...seriously! and the funny thing was the laser didnt have any cats, an i doubt my car does any better with emissions. regardless i give much respect to all dsm's now, especially the 1st gen. sleepers.
