I have to start by saying that I actually love SoCal, and the weather. But the heat, especially in the summer, kills the performance of a Subaru.
I've got a 02 WRX Sedona Red Sedan, HKS up-pipe, Godspeed Downpipe, Injen SES Exhaust, Blitz SUS intake, and the ECUteK.
I'm frustrated because I just got pulled on by an Integra. True, he was by himself, whereas I had my Girl (120lbs) and Roommate (200lbs), and soundsystem (50lbs) in the car. It was 7:30 p.m., with about 80* f. ambient temp.
He pulls up, revs on me, we both gun it, but he gets the jump and I can't pull on him, at which point he rolls down his window, taunts me and yells out "All-Motor... What happened MF!".
I go crazy, and my blood level goes through the roof, and ignore my girlfriends screaming and begging for me to slow down, because I've got my heart set on showing him what Subaru's are all about.
Anyway, I get maybe half a car on him, which is not nearly enough for him to stop taunting, or lower my condition blood level. But I give up, as I'm unable to utilize my ace, AWD, at a red light.
I can't find one and have broken too many traffic laws in the past 2 minutes than in my entire life.
I'm really upset. Had it been a little cooler, and a red light, I could've without a doubt spanked him from here till kingdom come, but I lost. Though I still finished ahead, this is still a loss.
Any input. Help. advice??? Let me know, as I'm about to trade this one in for a V8.
