Default Tables turned?

A little over a month ago, I got into a drawn out debate about my VR6 taking on a WRX. It was a mess to say the least...

Anyway, I was browsing around today and I noticed this thread:

WRX vs 2k2 Maxima

I just thought it was pretty ironic that the factors that I was trying to shed light on were also used in this scenario by many WRX owners. Weight vs HP, running from a stop and basically bringing the Maxima into the WRX's world. Basically trying to "even the odds".

I got quite a bit of negative attention and quite a few people insulting me. I just think it's important for the people here [mostly who did insult me] to notice the hypocrisy that I have seen today. Keep an open mind next time someone comes in here trying to defend their car. There is ALWAYS more to a race than just HP numbers.

*DICLAIMER*
This is, in no way, a flame on the people of this board. I had my battle before and it proved nothing. Please do not take this thread the wrong way. It is not posted to insult anyone, it's just here to bring up something that I feel needs to be seen. Thanks.

I just read that thread and came away with the feeling that an mY02 maxima can take me at highway speeds. So??? I really don't understand the point you are trying to make. Sorry......


A car with MORE hp that will loose in a 1/4 mile race but on the freeway it will probably do a lot better then the wrx. A lighter car with less hp is not going to do the same thing (a stock vw).

Why do you even care? People buy different cars for different reasons. I need AWD, speed, reliablitiy so I bought a wrx. If your a VW guy then great. Good for you. But I dont understand how you are coming back here and still trying to compare two completely different cars. Let it go. Im not saying leave the club, but just lighten up. Everyboyd knows with enough $$$ you can make any car fast. Civics, Accords, GTIs would have no problem taking a WRX with a respectiable mod list. So lets leave it at that. VWs are great cars as are Nissians and Subarus.

Stupid troll that cares more about what people think of his car than his confidence, knowing what his car could do...

He just needs attention...

You have no right throwing out those stypid rolling eye faces at people. I belive in treating people with respect and getting my point across. Intersting how a moderator would disagree on keeping the boards in a equal and freindly enviroment.

Yeah I don't know and that original thread got out of hand. I don't know why.

Concering people's attitudes: I think a lot of you guys suck for acting so rude to him. I said it in the original thread and I'm saying it again :sigh: I don't mean that I think any of you're bad people. Honestly, why not just be cool and converse?? Is it that hard to do?

Oh, get over it already. If you are still worried about "trying to defend" your car, "even the odds", or what people may have said about your comments in an internet forum a month ago, you need bigger things in life to worry about.

BTW, if you posted that thread on a Honda forum, you likely would have gotten treated even worse. If you want people to concur with your statements, post your comments on a VW site. I read your original post; your comments were (IMHO) biased towards your VW. That doesn't bother me but it's sort of unrealistic to expect return comments that aren't biased towards the WRX on a Subaru website.
