    Default Run in a STI today

    I was taken out in my mates new subaru sti type uk today, lovely looking car . I have been out in ordinary wrx scoobys before and thought they were quite good but nothing special so when he bought this beast i had to get a run in it the spec is the usual STI type uk but its running at over 300BHP with brake upgrades and quickshift..

    The acceleration was incredible but the handling was out of this world. I can honestly say its the first time i have really been scared in a car . The usual private runway i go in the vec i can sit at 65-70 going into the tight corners but today we hit these corners at over a TON and TBH i still dont know how we got round them, had to shout at him to slow down as i had a kid on the way and wanted to meet it....
    Anyway we got back safe and sound to where i had parked my work van, i proceeded to drive back to work in the van at 40mph as i was still ****ting myself

    Just thought i would share this useless info with you all to see if anyone else has had experiences like this

    Sounds like a fun ride! My sister has a Toyota Supra 3.0 Twin Turbo and I have to say I have never felt anything like that in a car when my brother-in-law put his foot down. I felt the blood drain from my face - what an amazing car, and the sounds from behind you are superb, particularly the turbo dump valve - an electronic whine followed by a very satisfying whoosh.

    I told her I would race her in it up a very steep hill in my 3.0 V6 Cdti but I don't really think I will have much of a chance ... willing to give it ago though ... going over to see her in a few weeks and she said she has found a steep hill

    Ah well, makes me feel better when I think about my 30ish mpg compared to her 16ish and having to use optimax or equivilent RON fuel
