    But I'd rather have a bottle in front of me... after I've pulled on another S4. Yes, they're much more refined than a WRX and pretty strong too. Yet it's fun to beat one with a less expensive machine.

    My take on this thread is pretty simple. I'm glad I got my STI because maybe i'll get some good races again. In my supra, people see the body kit accentuating the giant FMIC, and hear the external wastegate dumped to the atmosphere, which might be a little loud, and I can't get damn crotch rockets to race me.

    There is a lot of truth in this thread. I had a ford Ranger before my rex and people would get next to me at a light to race me to the merge ahead only to go 5 under the speed limit. Now I pray for that crap and nothing.

    What I don't understand is why people lay off. Who cares if you loose. Maybe it is because they have all kinds of lights and body kits and no muscle and it is embarrassing.

    When the light turns green, I always wait to see what the other car is going to do, in the rex, they hardly move. They inch away from the light like they don't want to provoke me.

    Well, the car is still a blast to drive!

    we have all the wrx's looking for V8's and cars that's boosted and all the svt cobras and other v8's looking for wrx's down here.

    it's funny, this one wrx owner would not race anything else then domastic v8's. It's a good race tho.

    Two more avoided races tonight. One was a grand-am with about as much sh*t as you could put on it. I even noticed that the dashboard had a neon string around it. Next to me at a light. Didn't even sit next to me so I could see in his car. Light turns, I don't move until after he goes, he very slooowly makes it to speed.
    The other was an eclipse with some kind of glow thingy on his rims so when he was driving it looked like a circle of neon. I wanted to smoke him just for that. Next to him, I get on it up until the speed limit of 40, he barly made it across the intersection.
