Saw a WRX 2.5RS coming up the 101 this morning. I flashed my hazards as I drove past, but didn't see any response.

Heh. Not intentionally. He was going pretty slow in the middle lane, I was going past in the left-most (not HOV) lane. Just average fwy speeds (which, right there, is 50 if I'm lucky)...

I don't often smoke fellow Subies. The jackass in the Infiniti G35 coupe who tried to pass me from the right hand merge lane (just after I got off the fwy)? Yeah, he got smoked. And every damned time I do something like that, I just get this stupid grin on my face and say "I love this car".

In this case, stock WRX with a short-throw shifter. And reflexes. And a little motivation.

He may not have been trying (he was passing on the right-side merge lane, probably assuming he'd just be a little quick and get ahead of a few people), and I was only sort of trying.

Is this really that surprising? The G35 really isn't that special.. i'd be more surprised to hear about a wrx delivering a good spanking to a viper or z06.

I wasn't really surprised, just wondering what mods if any.

I remember when I had my 02 WRX literally stock when I first bought it, against my cousin in his 07 DSG GTI from a roll, he pulled away from me and beat me up the on ramp. From a stop it would be a different story, the WRX will certainly give the GTI even with its launch control a fat spanking.

I was really surprised when my younger cousin pulled on me with the GTI. We went at it from about 40 or so, so second gear. His little turbo just spooled faster and pulled a car within a few seconds.

Of course after I went stage 2 with a tune, I had no problems after. I miss my bugeye.

A few days ago I saw a beautiful wrb 2.5rs coupe on bronze on baseline crossing lindsay.. looked pretty 22b status but I only saw it from a distance.

I saw the same wrb STI on bronze heading north on Gilbert around 250PM the last two days in a row.... car looked clean but he didn't notice mine. :[

Wrb WRX sedan with roofrack, license place subidoo or something like that heading south on Gilbert today around 300PM.

Black 08+ STI hatch headed south on Gilbert right at williams feild around 300PM as well.

Nice to see a few subies on the way home from work.

Because it's too freakin hot to stick my hand down the window and lose all my AC, I usually just turn off my fog lights and turn them back on.

Then the other suby driver will just flash theirs lol.

Ditto. I usually flash my brights or tap my hazards if they're behind me.

Yesterday around 5:30ish I spotted a blue 2.5RS on the 10E under the bridge. I was the guy in the white F150 that let you over. You signaled and I flashed, I feel like we connected......

Saw this car yesterday at the Albertsons on Gilbert & Riggs. Not sure if it belongs to anyone on here but it hurt my heart a little bit to see it this way.
