got bored at work and decided to jump on your site, i read all of your race stories and they are pretty weak. i was wondering if you guys have ever raced a car that wasnt slow as ####.

Well, most people here on the tC forum are more likely to put forth the time to tell their stories if they're proud enough to share them--ie, when they win. Sure, some people post stories whether they win, looose, or tie. But MOST people are likely to only share the good times


And if their stories are so weak, where are yours, and what do you drive?

Yeah, I have. I raced a Viper around an on-ramp and beat it. The driver was a *****. What's your point?

I don't think there's any kind of racing on Wednesday unless you are going to Sac Raceway. Street racing is for people who want to get their cars impounded.

Well lets see...The WRX guy came in a little cocky and WRONG how he posted his forums...I own a stock 06 tC...but the WRX guy is ok...My friend owns an 02 wrx stock and Ive raced him from all angles...We have raced from a launch and he took me by 10 cars and we have raced from 2nd gear rolling at 40 and I went first and he still won by 10 cars and also we have raced on the highway going 60 in 3rd and he still won by 500 cars so the ones that own a tC even witd i/h/e ummm please dont waste gas by racing a wrx because I have wasted too much already and cant keep up for shizznits

see, and i thought this was going to be asking if anyone here had actually raced a car thats fast in that the car i was driving was fast. bummer. cause i could have answered yes to that one, too. if you search through you will find my race against a TT supra. lance can tell you how that turned out (not that i was racing him in his tt supra, but he would know). it turned out poorly for me. duh. i also took a run at an STI (that was amusing), and one at the new Z. but really, what defines "fast car"? i dont consider the tC to be fast by any means, but i dont really consider a wrx to be fast, either. faster, sure, but fast? NIMHO.
