This race was me in my 97 mirage 4dr vs. a cavalier. I wont have a wrx until probably November but I thought you would all like this story and probably laugh. Oh and it might be long but it shows how funny some "racers" are when they think they have a fast car.
It was like 12midnight to like 1am and me and my friend went to jack in the box to get a bite to eat. We are sitting in my car eating in the parking lot and after we are done eating we are just sitting there for a while when all of a sudden this cavalier (probably no more than 2 years old) with an exhaust pulls right in front of me, looks right at me, then revs and pulls away. I looked at my friend and asked "was he reving at me?" and my friend said "I think so". I start up my car and he is all the way at the other end of the parking lot. When I start to pull out he guns it to where I am at almost hitting me then peels out to the main road and takes off so I floor it and went from 8 car lengths behind him to walking away.
So when I got to like 85 I just let off cause I got so far ahead. After I let off I slowed down to the speed limit which was 40 and I see him coming up pretty quick then he slows down right by me and revs yet again and takes off. So he slows down and I thought he was going to turn right at the light but he didn't and he was just driving really slowly. I slowed down to about 25 and he was still falling behind so I came to a dead stop cause there were no cars out and besides he reved on me again so I wanted to go at it one more time. I was at a dead stop and he creeps up slowly then when he gets near my back bumper he guns it and I am still on the brake pedal so I ease out the clutch and floor it.
Bye the time I started to go he had at least like 2 cars on me but by the time I shifted into 2nd I was side by side with him and stared at him while I went by and by the time I got to 80 I had about 3 cars or so on him plus I came back from about 2 cars behind him. After the 2nd go at it he slowed down way back and turned right.
Just to let you all know my car is comepletly stock only 115hp and 118tq from the factory according to the specs. I don't know why but civics and all these so called racers over here liek to race me for some reason and I even stayed dead even with a prelude from a 30mph roll till 90 then I shut down cause I big 90degree turn was coming up. After racing all these cars and seeing that I can beat them or pull even with my stock mirage I am just going crazy thinking about what my stock rex will do when I get it and what it will do after some mods.
Well hope you all enjoyed the story and hopefully got a laugh out of it. Oh and sorry about the length but I tend to right things in detail. Oh and the air smelled as if someone was having a nice bar b que with honey bar b que sauce hahahaha j/k.
