Ok, here goes. One: Why the hell are you guys getting so worked up over a guy in a Suburu?? WRXdriva: This is for you...I'd like to apologize for my fellow RL drivas. I guess they tend to get fired-up a little easy sometimes. However, in their defense, you did spit some awfully sarcastic dialouge about our cars. You need to tread lightly when you drive a WRX and start dissing RLs and the forum's name is Redline Forums...just a thought SpOOner, this bud's for you: You need to lighten the hell up! Just because some guy comes up here like king swaggercock and starts trashin RLs does not mean you have to go all Jihad on his ass!!! You start ramblin'...kinda makes us look bad. You drive a RL, so you're my kin, so take this with a grain of salt. I love ya man My take on all of this is that the stock WRX at a stated 227hp may very well put out wheel hp very close to our RLs. Given the WRX will launch better due to AWD, I think it's quite possible to hold your own when matched with a WRX. My biggest gripe is why is this guy is dissin a RL, when his car cost at least 4 maybe 5 grand more than a RL, and we likely have almost identical output hitting the road? Now, given...imports have a far better perception of quality...especially since GM is still responsible for the simply miserable shitvette, oh, I'm sorry did I say that outloud, I meant chevette...really Bottom line: The domestics have now proven that they won't rollover and play dead when it comes to these budget rice rockets from abroad! Personaly, WRXdriva...shell out the extra 5 Gs and step up to the STi, I worship that car! Only the 04' and later though...ya little 03' WRX wit da bug eyed, lookin' like a neon headlights never did the car justice! So, in the future, let's not go to a forum and start bashin' the car the damn thing was named after...that's just bad taste, man! Also, my fellow RL brethren, give the guy a little respect if he fairly dusted a RL, worry not, he'll get his! So folks, keep it real...and for god's sake let's try and keep it civil...especially you two. Love ya Peas and chicken grease, I'm outty 5000!
