    Nobody ever wants to race...

    Unless they're in a full size truck. Still can't figure that out. Needless to say, I win.

    Every now and again people try to race me but I find that there are entirely too many idiots on the road to even get a good race going. I've kind of stopped racing just because it seems that luck isn't on my side. I always get the idiots that pull out in front of me at the last minute and then, I have to do some quick emergency maneuvering. A Prelude pulled a flyby on me and a AUDI TT and I were going pretty good until an idiot almost caused me to have a very bad accident. I haven't had anyone try to race me recently though.

    For some reasons I haven't lost yet (I will for sure, but I don't mind) and I am stock wagon. So far I have beaten a few Mustangs (incl. older 5 and newer 4.6), z28 (older gen), m3 (older gen), and even a Porshe and it was not a Boxster! It was 9xx from 80th, I thought the guy would destroy me, but I thought - what the heck, I'll try to make a good AWD lounge and, probably, would stick with him up to 60. So, I had him VERY bad (2-3 cars) by the end of the 1st, and I kept the distance in the second. Listening to that thunder roar behind me I knew he was trying... So, my understanding the guy decided to give up very soon, otherwise he would destroy me.

    I raced a new Camaro SS a week ago, when I was running everything stock. I beat him........ for like, 5 feet. Then he swallowed me whole and spit me out in little tiny pieces. So, I'm keeping away from those until I finish my mods.

    I'm able to take my friend with a 5.0 Mustang from about 0-65mph. All he has is headers, exhaust, and air filter.

    or you can wait until it starts to rain and snow. Well, I guess majority of the ws6 will hibernate in the winter...

    My WRX is stock and I have only raced one time..which was a 5.0 Mustang with an exhaust and thats all I think. I was just cruising going home at night and he gets next to me and punches it.. I was in fourth and by the time I downshifted he was gone so I said fuk it. Well the light ahead turned green and he waited for me going around 25 mph. I pulled up side by side and his passenger asked if I wanted to go, so I said sure. His friend counted down 3,2,1 with his hands and then we hit it from 30 mph to 75 mph. I went WOT in second and since this was my first time racing, my adrenaline was all pumping and being the newbie I am, I was red lining it for a couple seconds before I noticed it. I switched to third and cya! I was about 3-4 cars ahead. After that we nodded and went on our way.
