"You brake and then turn the wheel, step on the clutch, and pull the e-brake. Release the e-brake, go into countersteer mode, then wait. Wait until you know the car is facing the corner exit direction. then you smile and slam on the gas as you exit the corner." - Keiichi Tsuchiya
love the noose(sp?) lol picture. Pictures are worth more than words ya know. No Northern Oregon meets going on lately? I would be down according to avail. but haven't seen much up lately? Am I misssing out on anything?
Ah crap. I actually have the day off today but We have a Croquet party to go to. It's a must go once a year drunk fest that we enjoy...and no i will not be driving home...
Well... I am back, 900 miles, 1 ticket, and a tank full of regular later!
Pull up to a Shell in ... Drain, OR and this pothead comes over (works for the gas station) and says he used to have one but says his had a turbo on it and that he wrecked it. I respond with "all wrx's have turbos...". He then asks if my 02 is an STi and I explain that the STi wasn't made that year. I tell him to fill it up with premium (92 oct at this particular Shell) and he repeats it back to me and goes off to full the tank. I look behind me as he is finishing up and I see he just finished filling it with regular. I ask my wife what I asked for and she says "premium, like always...". So I get out of my car and almost freak out (I was handed the speeding ticket just 10 minutes prior...) but the wife calms me down and I go inside to tell the manager what happened. The kid walks in and says I asked for regular but the manager looked at my car and knew better. There was a shop right next door and they drained (get it?) the fuel and filled the WRX for free with premium! Too bad it took 45 minutes to get back on the road. I love free gas, wonderful thing. I hate having to go through all of that to get it though, and I feel bad for the manager cuz the kid effed up and cost them almost $100.
Long story short, don't go to Drain, OR.

Been through drain before a few times....and yet your story is sad, I can't say I am suprised. I am always so worried about it that I have to lean over and make sure the guy presses the right button. Super ocd...lol.
And the ticket?
