Default What an eventful day

Around 4 today i started fooling around with the factory sub in my WRX. I got it to sound a little better, but not that big of a difference. After i did that i went to the bank to withdraw some money, on my way there I noticed MY FIRST CEL! at 5000 miles. I immediatly went to my dealership, and they snuck me in real quick. The mechanic scanned, and got a type three error. which means the third cylinder isnt timed right or something like that. he reset the cpu. and the light went away, and told me if it comes on again, the cyllinder wont be timed right and just to come in. on my way home some kid in a gst eclipse with an exhaust, and intake, and who else knows what wanted to race me. after the second light i decided ive had enough, i slipped my clutch around 4k rpm, and seriously had about 3-4 car lengths on him by 40. Also on my way back home (long journey) the epitome of white trash pulls up to me in his red 89 trans am. He's decked out in his rainbow jeff gordon rainbow jacket, and a large dupont embroidery on the left sleeve. He also has his hair slicked back into a pony tail . we get to about 50 and both just decided to gun it, i pulled ahead a little, but then decided it was enough since i was doing almost fifteen over. All in all pretty fun day

I have to say that it is fun to waist some guy in what he thinks is the fastest thing on wheels, but always be safe. Tickets suck and so does messing up your car, be safe out there.

Would one rainbow cancel the other out, or would the two rainbows combine to make one single super rainbow?

Please excuse my ignorance. What does CEL mean and what is "slipping the clutch"?

CEL = check engine light
Slip Clutch = slowly letting off the clutch instead of dropping it

dont worry about the question, thats how you get to learn all these terms better

Check out the newbies forum, there is a thread on acronyms, it's a huge help, I'm constantly reffering to it.
