This afternoon one of my friends IMs me asking if he could check out my new WRX. I say sure and pick him up and we just start cruising around. As we're heading down Rt. 22 we both spot this older Ferrari pulling out of a shopping center and start heading in the same direction as us.
I work through the little bit of traffic between me and the Ferrari. We come to a stop light with the Ferrari in front of me with a slower car in the right lane.
Light goes green, and the Ferrari takes off, I could not launch or I would have ended up in his rear....
I hit the right lane as soon as I can and begin pulling on the Ferrari. Hit second gear and continue pulling on him, Im at his rear bumper by this time. I go to shift into third, and its not there! Tranny had shifted under the load and I went between third and fifth, when I finally got it into third, I continued to pull on the Ferrari until traffic forced us to shut it down at around 80 mph.
Guy driving the Ferrari gives me a huge thumbs up as I fall in behind him to move through traffic. Ferrari moves over to the right to get off at his turn and gives another big thumbs up. My friend returns the thumbs up and we continue on our way.
That run certainly made my day
This WR Blue WRX certainly gets more attention than Ive been used to....
