Anyone here? a white WRX with HKS Carbon Ti exhuast, STI headlights, and aftermarket wheels, looks like anthracite 18's or some sort tried to race my viper last night on 280S @ Alpine road around 10:30 pm.......


Anyone here want to fess up?

good try, but unfortunately taking a viper from a freeway roll will take alot more..........

That white WRX (not me) had to be just playing around!

I "pulled on" an M5 the other day on highway 5 just to see what that thing could do. Bye bye M5!

(Nice car btw!!!)

lol, well i dunno about that, i was just cruising along on my way home from work, when he came up in the fast lane.

they he passed me, then hit the brakes to slow to my speed.

when he got along side me I could clearly hear him downshift two gears, into 3rd i assume, i was only going around 65pmh at this time. He was doing little forward lurches until i decided to take the bait.

I down shifted from 6th to 4th, i could have gone to 3rd or second, but didn't feel like pushing my car that hard, so in 4th gear, around 3000 rpm, i gunned it....so did the white WRX as i could hear the blow off valve.......making the white wrx a faint spec in my mirror. I braked hard, i was going ~120 or so, and slowed back to cruising, 65mph, and the white WRX blew by me going 85-90.
