    STi vs maxima

    i was fine tuning my UTEC yesterday, so i pulled out of a parking lot where i was making some changes. this 02 or 03 maxima GLE drives in front of me and floors his car while looking directly at me. now he was going south and i wanted to go north, but i said what the heck- this guy probably thinks his max is hot ish (i had one back in the day and i thought the same thing), so im going to go put this guy in his place.

    so i follow him down this one road with stop signs and a school...and there are kids playing in the school lot and he is chriping his tires through every stop sign. i thought this was the stupidest thing ive ever seen, so i tried keeping up while remaining safe. so eventually, this street has a long straight. he peels out (as much as a max can) and hes off. im behind him at the stop sign, so i roll off the clutch and then by the time i go to 4th, im right behind him. we both make a left onto a busier street and i fly past him. he gets behind me (since im thinking im just going to go off and head home now) and waits. then he proceeds to drive across 2 lanes and make a turn in the completely opposite direction.

    lol. ridiculous.

    i wonder if he knew what he was racing....
    and it was a GLE, which means it wasnt even a 6speed.

    With a STI, you can have his a$$ handed to him.

    I raced a 03 maxima on my stage 2 wrx.. This dude was insane. He was cutting people off, weaving through traffic and almost killed me. Even on a stage 2, strangely enough I started to pull away, at WOT, on 5th gear. As you might have guessed it by 140 mph, I had 10 bus lengths on him. I slowed down to get a ricer flyby.

    ironically, I owned a maxima before I bought my 02 wrx and before my sti......the car was a nice sporty family sedan that offered decent acceleration for the type of car it was but come on.......it can in NO way hang with a stage 2 car (which my wrx used to be before I sold it) and in its best day could never imagine hanging with an sti....would not happen........you should have spanked him hard and ended it before he turned back just so he would know that he had no prayer.....a stock wrx wagon could take a maxima......maxima's are good at taking accords/camrys/impala's and such, its a different breed of car. Some of these guys never pay attention to reality.

    well, the 02/03 6speed and even auto are well out of the camary impala league... auto is a high 14sec to low 15 sec car and 6speed is a mid 14sec car. but still, not match for an STI or stageII rex.

    i like my maxima.... great all around car... 4 door luxery and refinement with decent sport and darn good power

    we used to have an older max. i thought it was the shiz at the time. it was pretty quick for what its worth, but definately not in the same league as my car....esp now.

    what bothered me the most was his "display of skillz" by speeding in school zones. i speed 90% of the time, but there are just some things that even i think are stupid. thats one of them. oh well.

    hey, didn't mean to insult it by categorizing it as a car that can only hang with camry's, I just know when I had mine those were the types of morons that would try to run me. I would take them pretty hard, the impala put up alittle bit of a fight now and then but most runs were with people like that. Vettes and cars like that were not out trying to run me is my point.
    I'm not knocking maxima's (as I owned one), i'm just saying that as a previous owner I can recognize that they are NOT the same league performance wise as my sti. Hell, I even ran nitto's on my maxima and I must say that my sti would destroy that car in any road race.

    yeah, i feel you... that was one of the main reasons I sold my maxima.. its a great all around car, (in 5/6 speed) but the sport was there. it was a powerful car and did better than any sport/luxery sedan in its price catagory, but for me, at 18 y/o i wanted something that handled better and was more fun to drive on a daily basis
