I was on my way home from work last night on the Mass. Pike (3 am.) when a late-model Celica pulled up behind me at the tolls. He had HIDs and a full body kit. I floored it, and he did the same. I had to go easy on my car, because I have a leaking gasket between my warped Borla header and PDE uppipe. It blew the last time I raced someone and had to be replaced (like the Borla will soon be). I still pulled on him pretty easily up to about 120, when I braked to bring things back to normal. He flew by me and put his hazards on for a couple seconds. I just don't understand why he would do that. Do the hazards signify victory, or just that a jackass is behind the wheel?

He was probably just trying to let you know he had a good time since you can't see a wave that late at night and and he can't flash the high beams at that point.

Just a guess.

But I have had much crappier cars do that to me when I was in cruise control at 75 mph. So who knows maybe he was a turd.

Anytime anyone has flashed their flashers at me it was to tell me they liked my car/the fun we just had.
In Miami, we all know flashing your Hazards means victory.

So this guy assumed he probably beat because you missed 5th :rolleyes:

:D

Since he saw my brakes and I was obviously winning, it might be that he just wanted to show that he had a good time. If not, then he must believe that turning his hazards on is a secret weapon for victory.

I liked the celica that was on the street when I was getting dinner the other night. I was just chilling. I shifted and he heard the turbo and bov. he whiped his head clear around. I gave him a quick rev. think it was a gt and not the gts. I guess he did not know what to make of my wagon.:D

Celica > WRX!

The Celi will nevAr lose! :rolleyes: :D

I don't know why he even bothered... unless the WRX is stock and both cars are moving from a roll, the Celica doesn't stand a snowball's chance in hell.

I think you are the first celica owner i have seen that doesn't think their car is the fatest car on the road.

Do you have any mods yet?

:wiggles:
The only place I've seen where my car is faster than most is on an AutoX track with more corners than straightaways. I've raced a WRX once from a roll, before my engine rebuild and I got my ass handed to me. 2 cars from 60-80. Not much of a race, but the WRX driver was a jackass, and I didn't feel like going again.

Only current mods are a new engine :D, TRD clutch, AEM CAI, and 2 TRD badges.
