Default Took down a subaru bro...

So at our local spot a 05 STi pulls up, sounds/looks nice. I figure its gotta be faster than most of the na hondas around here so I ask him to run. He asks me what I have. I point to my GTO.

This is where it gets good. He says, "man, you gotta find me something faster than that, those aren't worth my time." So I ask him whats done to it and he says "20g turbo, tbe, 376whp on a mustang dyno, and yea, its fast."

He then says he doesn't wanna race casue he doesn't wanna get caught. So I say, well you only made 376, I made more than that so maybe I shouldn't waste my gas racing you. That does the trick.

Here is the dig, the roll isn't even worth watching lol.


Now this car has potential. It does have a billet wheel 20g TRX or something like that. But it still had the stock top mount intercooler. A FMIC and e85 would probably make some power.

good story and even better kill story. Glad you put the **** in his place. I had a kid with a bolt on pullied gt500 a few months ago saying nothing was worth running here. He wouldn't run my TA after he saw that I had a big as intercooler hanging out the front, but for about 5 minutes before hand he was saying I wasn't worth the gas then afterwards it was excuse after excuse and that I'd slaughter him. No kill on my part, but damn I wish I could have baited him in better like you did.

I used to be a Sti owner ! I loved it and I hated to get rid of it but I hate when people get real cocky(probably its the fastest car they own or been in). I mean really... You have to consider in your mind that if someone ask you to run that THEY MAY HAVE MODS AND KNOW HOW TO DRIVE! It makes people think all Sti owners are dipsticks. Altough a did take down a stock 06 Gto due to a not so good driver. All I had was a TBE.

Good Kill OP !

Thanks. I don't know why people can't just race for fun and just be happy win or not.

STI's are nice. I'm just more of an Evo guy, but haven't had a chance to own either yet

I read somewhere that 400 H.P is the max for their stock bottom end before stuff starts going horribly wrong... so if he gets that FMIC and E85 it might not last long after. Either way, good kill OP.

I will never get why people don't run for fun.

Someone knocks on my door.
I'm in.

Hell, I wish my neighbors would bug me more
