    Hello and welcome to the Club!

    Orangewrx and you have a black WRX?

    It is best to keep the racing off the street.

    Street racing will not go far here.... just as a friendly warning. I make it a habit to not help those who have problems because they street race. Keep it on the track.

    Welcome to ClubWRX and congrats on the purchase.

    what's with all the do-gooders giving me advice about street racing?

    you know nothing about where I raced, how old I am , my driving ability etc lol

    that's like saying "Don't dive into shallow water" if I said I was diving somewhere...

    pointless.

    anyhow... lol I love the car that is why i posted!

    Discussing streetracing is generally frowned upon, as it is illegal and dangerous to the remainder of the drivers on the road. If you were at the track, congrats on the race! If this incident occurred on the street, please don't make this sort of event a daily occurrence. But the occasional stoplight drag race - hey everyone is human

    Everyone overestimates his/her own driving ability, hence the reason why cars are wrapped around trees daily. As to your age, it doesn't matter if you are 16 or 116, if you drive recklessly, you are endangering others.


    Regardless, congratulations on the purchase and welcome to ClubDub! Should you choose to head down the mod path, make sure you research before you buy

    Get used to more of us do-gooders giving you all kinds of crap if you continue to post about street racing.

    It's pretty obvious it was on a street so you'll get crap over it. The rest of the stuff is irrelevant anyway.

    Enjoy your new ride.

    I'd take a boxster in a heartbeat. Hell, throw in a Miata too.
