    Talking me v. civic...1st kill

    So as you may or may not know I got my 2003 PSM WRX sedan today. Me and my cousin (tacsatarmy on these boards) decided to go cruising around. We went down to the street where most of the ricers ride around and found a few. Pulled up next to one and asked if he wanted to run and he said yeah. He had a loud ass exhaust and was spinning tires everywhere, spinning while switching to 2nd and 3rd gear as well. He thought he was hot stuff. Well he follows me untill we finally get side by side again and he asks "is that AWD?" yes "is it turbo" yes. Then he asks "whats it run" and my cousin says "its got a 30 day tag" (implying that is BRAND new and the times are unknown). The ricer's girlfriend then makes some smart ass remark that we just ignore. Finally we get side by side to a light. I am nervous (first street race and brand new car) and the light turns green. I accidently completely drop the clutch and bog us down to under 2000RPM's in first gear, but the civic is still behind us screeching tires. Finally I hit boost and take off, then 2nd the same, then just slow off at about 60mph and he drives by I give him the nod and he did nothing.

    Long story short.....

    I know I shouldnt be out looking to street race, but I just had to do it, and had to show off.

    It's no biggie really. I raced an older Integra (no launch or anything) while I was breaking in the car. I wasn't vast quantities of cars ahead of him, but I was winning while shifting at 4000 RPMs.

    Correct, a 2003 with 35,000 miles on it. Alot for a 2003, but they we are assuming they were all highway cause you cant put that many miles on it that fast.

    Anywho, thanks. The story may not make much sense because I wrote it last night when I was really tired.

    This car feels and looks brand new inside and out. The sideskirts arent even painted. I dont think the previous owner knew what he/she had.
