Well the first night I had my recently VF43'd FSXT out to a local cruise night... I stood back and watched as people walked around, checked it out and repeated said "STi? psh... poser!"
I later saw that they were driving a riced Cavalier and the other guy had a V6 Camaro... fail! :lol:

I guess I don't get it... what would that bigger turbo do to change the minds of some ignorant idiot ricers? You're already faster than they will ever be, even with the stock turbo. The problem is that you went to a "tuner" meet, i.e. rice central. Do those comments really bother you enough for you to feel like you have to prove yourself to these guys? I'd just give them the thumbs up and chuckle quietly at their rides. :crazy:

Your fundamental error is in the title of your post.
There is no question about...People SUCK!
Now that you have that straight, it will be easier to identify the exceptions to the rule.
Then you can ask: Why don't less people suck?....

Go to the track, get a time slip, and then tape it to your windshield during the next event. Or bring along an autocross trophy. And then include a couple photos of your Forester tearing it up in the slop. At that point it becomes 'put up or shut up'.

Sucks you don't live closer, i'd say shoot me a PM next time and i'll go with you with my dyno sheet taped to the windsheild, and i'll also make sure i show up with a tailgate full of gear and a thick coating of mud.

Then we can tell them our foresters go faster, haul better, off road better, tow better, and attract less tickets then their gawdy rice rocket. And to really rub it in i'll be sure to mention that it's funny the 2L bottle of mountain dew i'll be drinking contains more displacement then their 1.8L vtec.

screw the ricers! I get crap from the dubbers now too that I have defected back to Subie land. I don't care, I am not trying to win a popularity contest.

LOL. I love going to my local "tuner" meets at the Sonic by the mall. Mostly just a bunch of high-school punks with Civics and Integras with Autozone accessories, mis-matched body kits, lots of primer and fart-can mufflers galore. My method of choice is to show up right after I've been mud-bogging so the car is completely covered in mud. I park, order some food and watch as these little boy-racers try to figure out *** it is. :biggrin:

Don't worry so much about what they think. If you want to make nice with that crowd, go to the dollar store and buy sheets of stickers to hand out to them. Not only will you help them decorate their cars, but the stickers will make them go faster too.
