Default 12mph turbo spool reference

I've been here for a while, but recently have been venturing into OT. What is the hilarity behind the 12mph spool reference. Did someone use that as an excuse for totaling there WRX?

Wrong. It hits full boost once the key is turned in the ignition to notch II.

After his "turbo spooled @ 12mph" a house jumped out in front of him and he plowed into it.

While we are at it, how about the "carbon fiber hard to damage" shtick.

Normally I would agree with "search", but since 500 threads have 12mph turbo spool in them now, they all come up, and no1 wants to read all of them to find out what the joke is. Its funny but not that funny... okay.. its pretty damn funny.

Can I do both? Or wait! Maybe there was already a thread about what I should do and I should search.
