Default 2.5 RS owned at So. Cal 944 Fun Run

Today I run a "Porsche Fun Run" in my stock MY00 2.5 RS (only non-Porsche there) and met up with people at the top of Stunt Rd. Everyone in their Porsches laughed at my car and one guy even had the nerve to called it an "econ-box." Once my brother and I got there all the cars left for more canyon driving. It was the GT2 first then me then the "econ-box" guy in his V8 Porsche then about 20 other Porsches behind us. The GT2 lost us in about 2 secs but as I started going all the Porsches started falling behind me in my "econ-box". When we regrouped the V8 Porsche guy took back everything he said about my car.

The point of this WAY TO LONG thread:
I BEAT 20 DIFFERENT PORSCHES AND NO PORSCHE COULD KEEP UP WITH MY SUBARU

Eggsellent. Nice to show them how its done. 9/10, I would bet on the driver in the econobox that knows how to drive versus someone with a $100k car. And what is this v8 porsche????



Oh yeah, you on stock tires (re92's?) If so, you get two more

OMG. You are a noob. Stop double posting in different forums.

Hey dude, its called a fun run. Get it have fun? Not race? If you felt like racing and everyone else is putting around their 60G+ cars. Ooh, you're the winner.

BTW a 928 S4 is RWD and owns the 1987 landspeed record for production cars at 172mph DUDE. I seriously doubt that he was worried about a 2.5RS.

Were they really trying to keep up with you or were they just cruising?

Sorry, but WRX's/RS's aren't econobox's. The gas mileage is HORRIBLE and the price isn't nec economy (civic, etc). Compact car, yes.
