Whoa Nelly! You don't own a car now, and you're curious about street racing (FATF a few times?), and now wanna go.Originally posted by jester
Anyways, I dont own the WRX yet. I have 2 weeks to decied if i want one. Im leaning towards yes, but now all the sudden im getting some NO's in my mind...I've never really street raced my self because i dont have a car. So i really dont know how fast the other cars our there are besdies times and watching other races....
Well lets say i get a WRX, and I break it in. Lets say i wanna go to a street racing scene.
Based on your posts it sounds like you need more experience in something that might not kill you as quickly. AWD can be VERY dangerous with a newbie driver or one that has not got the miles under his/her belt. AWD will stick like you wouldnt believe to the road, but what happens when you reach the edge at 100MPH and get snap oversteer from a large bump (don't say drifting...)? How to correct for that? How about understeering into a long sweeper at 130MPH? and when you correct you tap the brakes and get lift throttle oversteer? Just things to think about. The WRX is pretty damn fast (I come from M cars, Audi S4, and others). It will never keep up on those long flat roads in FL with a heavily modded Supra or RX7, nor any other top end car like a Porsche TT.
I do hope you've got half a bean in your head to take it easy. The WRX is plenty capable of giving you major pucker factor without worrying about guys that dump 10s of thousands of dollars (Supras, etc) into their rides.
Get the WRX and take it easy, it IS a safe car. If you learn the stock vehicle it's much faster than you think on the street. THEN mod it.
Anyways, if you happen to be the next Mario A. then help a brother out and learn me something.
