Question Yellow ITR

The yellow Integra Type R with the Tirerack banner that I keep seeing around Boulder and Lafayette is El Kabong right?

I have seen that car. I have also seen a yellow ITR with an older lady driving. Kinda suprising.

Every time I have seen the yellow ITR with the tirerack sticker there was a younger lady driving it. When I had my ITR she would always wave. There is another yellow ITR that has an older lady driving it. I don't want to seem like I am insulting anyone's wife or anything .

My sister's boyfriend has a black ITR. And the white one may have been me. That car was stripped right in front of my house in the friggin driveway. That poor car had more crap happen to it than should have. That car just attracts vandals and stupid wannabe racer boys that think that if they steal a red valve cover it will make their civic faster! The ITR is a great car though, too bad mine had bad karma and had to be destroyed or stolen by everyone that saw it on the street. Ahhh, I miss my ITR. The WRX makes me very happy though

Here is the list of nasty things that happened to my ITR (in case I haven't whined about it enough):

-first ITR stolen from in front of my house after 2months (brand new alarm system...didn't do !#$%)

-new ITR gets giant 20lb rock thrown apparently out of a moving vehicle through my spoiler, through the back window, through the drivers seat (bending it over), into the front windshield and landing on the dash (breaking it also).

-ITR gets fixed and I decide to sell it to get a WRX. Someone was going to fly in from new mexico to buy the car and a week before... The car gets stripped. Right in front of the house in my driveway. They take the seats, the ECU, the valve cover, the strut tower bar (which only fits the ITR). The car is totalled and I end up loosing big $$ because some freakin kids decided they wanted a "type r" civic. I hope that ECU blew their engine!!!

But now I have the WRX and I am very happy with it.

The end.

The WRX definitley has more torque and horsepower than the ITR. But the ITR is much lighter and has much better suspension not to mention much better stock tires for dry. The ITR was faster and more stable in a turn, that thing turns like a knife. Not as stable in the wet. Once there was a sprinkler leak at an intersection and I spun it into a curb, bent my wheel . The thing is so light that it just rides up on that stuff, I wasn't going more than 40 and it just lifted me up and guided me to the curb. WRX feels very stable in wet and dry. New wheels and tires will fix that, I'm sure.
