    Ess Tee Eye.

    Coming home from work today on an empty stretch of two lane road a new STi comes up behind me, I stick on the sport button and check the mirror, he's all over me like a rash so I give him the thumbs up then floor it. Now before anyone starts I think the STi is an awful lot of performance for the money and I like them, and I know a modded one would stamp all over me, but this must have been stock, and he just fell away. It wasn't a thrashing, but he just couldn't stay with me. In my M3 I could never get away from these, this felt really good.

    I thought you might use it as a parachute-Pop open the sunroof and let it fly for those extra quick stops. Just make sure your seatbelts on or there could be trouble.

    hey, was it the new one, the 2006 with the weird looking front end?

    Re: Ess Tee Eye.

    I don't support street racing in any way. However, from time to time, it can be a lot of fun. The STi is an extremely fun car for a great price, but the Porsche is a Porsche.
    Great story. Thanks for sharing!

    and the back

    Re: Ess Tee Eye.

    The way I figure it there's two things going here:

    1. I'm on a public roadway not a drag strip

    2. I'm the one driving the Porsche.

    Therefore I have nothing to prove to anybody. Let 'em burn right by.

    Re: Ess Tee Eye.

    I agree actually MMD. I rarely get tempted into that sort of thing. To clarify, this was a dual lane road with no on or offs, kerbed all the way. There was just him and me. I think I probably hit about 90 (started at about 30) when I called it off and braked. If there had been even one other car in sight I wouldn't have done it. But yes, it was a public road and it isn't big or clever.

    Oh yeah. I get it. "Been there done that," as they used to say and be cool saying it. Still do it. Just pi**ed at myself later for taking huge risk (compared to benefit of having nothing to prove).
