anyways, light turned green, i dumped the clutch at about 3.5k, soon as i did that he watched the front of my soob leave his vw with his mouth open.. so after leaving him behind at the light, he pulls up next to me goin about 60mph, looks at me and yells, wanna race to 100? (what kind of moron is he?)
anyways, i nodded, dumped it into 3rd, and by the time i hit 100 he was about 4 car legnths behind me :rollin: .
so i slowed down, let him catch up, he pulled up next to me, flipped me off, and sped off down the road. (or maybe he crawled off down the road)
i'll bet he was happy none of his buddy's were there to watch him get spanked by a wagon, haha.:rollin:
that was my fun for the weekend. hehe

I revved my engine, mom revved hers, and when the light turned green I roared out at top speed,
and mom blasted past me without even trying.
The moral of this story, if you want a fast Subaru, go with a new(er) one.

It's great to know that my car has the power to kill all those imports w/ the loud mufflers and big wheels. You'd swear that the people/kids who drive them think that just b/c their car has exhaust work and big wheels, its fast.
My Rue gives them a nice reality check:eek:

when i still had the ole XT6 2 guys in a little gti rabit thoguht it was fast. same light too lol.. (too many VW's here) was me, wife, and 2 friends in the XT6. they looked at me and laughed sittin there at the light.. when that light turned green, he took me by half a rabbit length until i got some rpm's (automatic) then i blew by him like he wasn't even there.. waved, and laughed as i went by with a fuilly loaded XT6 :rollin: the guy in the passenger seat flipped me off as i went by.. was too funny :rollin:
its always a riot, blowing some kid, with a honda, vw, etc off the road in a Soob. whether its a wagon, xt6, etc.. espesialy when they think they have a fast car and try to show off :rollin:

My new 1.8T Jetta wagon on the other hand holds it's own against most sport compacts and some older V-8 fire chickens and rustangs and it's only going to get faster...hehe

when i was in the navy stationed in JAX florida (waxing natalgia here):
I was in the 77 coup DeVille that baba (gramma) sold to me cheaply. some other kid near my age as i was a whopping 19/20 at the time pulls up next to us in the slow lane in a nearly new Mustang GT at the time it was either the 89 or 90 model i think (???) anyways i had a broken front antiswaybar so the front would tilt to the side when it would get gas.... anyways the next light he rev's it at us the buddies laugh at it becaause he's pickin' on a Caddie for cryin out loud, don't he have anything better ti pick on tonight? I grin and look over at that kid driving the 'Stang and tell the buddies to lean back and relax...
I drop it in low and slowly and smoothly stage the car i figured the RPM's were about 3000 when the light turned green and i got the hole shot. (gigggles to self)
granted he ended up flying past me and ran the next light to "prove a speed point i guess".. but we were all shocked that i even got outta the hole before him....
ah welll... like the volvo its not a subie story but ehhhh... it'll do.

Oh and this is all out of a 5 cylinder. I'm not sure on the displacement, I think its either 2.4 or 2.5L
