and the cops were staring at me.. so i calmly drove off.. but deep inside i was very excited =) eheheh

Exactly, DEVO!! Otherwise the Action Man sticker would become just another Type-R or V-TEC on the side of a car... and I can't let that happen

Fred, I think it was the TransAm doing all the speeding... I was just drafting

Um, Ashton, I think it's easier to peel of those stickers by hand -- not by speeding!

Not that I was speeding -- right Orbiter?!?

LaterZ!

Have a Nice Day?

You guys really should be careful out there. What with all the bad media and public vibes going around, and the high profile cars we drive...I can only imagine the publicity we'll get if something happens. Let's not give the media/public/government any more fuel to add to their fire. I'm not condoning anything here, I'm confident you guys all know what you're doing out there. I'm just saying if y'all could keep it a bit hm....lower profile?

What do you mean 'BRP' ? I wanna know what you are talking about. Are you sayin there is a 2.5RS cop car ? RCMP ? what color ?

Also, guys come on dont be stoopid learning how to drive when it is raining etc. If anyone, out of all of us, I love to go out and have a blast and ****, but trust me, I've almost killed some of my best friends in mega crashes that didn't occur because you screwed up behind the wheel, but like because a tire blew out, a wheel broke, another guy cut into your lane, etc. If you are gonna do it, do it when there is NO ONE ELSE AROUND and DONT DO IT WHEN IT IS WET stoopid. I know I sound like a grand ma, but if any of you know me, I'm not. Just dont be out there getting killed or I will be mad.

(BRP) Blue Ridge Pearl, and yes
Next thing you know there will be a type-r on the prowl...

And you are entirely correct, Pat. Learning how to drive in poor conditions and locations is completely wrong and wreckless. Stephen at Specialty will be organizing more driver training for those interested (I think we should just sign up the vancouver i-club members list ) Perhaps we can get together as a group and discuss what sort of things we would really like to learn how to do and practise them safely. The impreza vs. lancer videos were awesome, but remember the look on that young drivers face while doing donuts? That's us right now

Leo, I was not going 170kph at any time on the highway. I know what stock RE-92's can do, especially after MANY auto-x's... I know a lot more about the car now and where my limits are as a driver and that of my car. At no time would I have gone beyond a safe limit... my fault is that you are not as experienced a driver in the impreza and I did not realize you were uncomfortable with the driving conditions. My appologies. It will not happen again.

yeah thanks - no I'm not slaggin no one nor dissin anyone just reminding you all to be careful. Like i said, I barely have a license right now so I am the worst hippocrite of all, so dont worry I aint slaggin ya !

On the cop car, is it totally stealth ? Where are the cop lights located ? What dealer sold it to them ? So like, is the deal 'dont ever race a guy in a BRP impreza' ? Is 'BRP' the rally blue, or the dark blue like Petrie's car ?
