No one messes with me

When I had my 2013 WRX, I would always have pick up trucks messing with me, and sometimes a BMW or Mustang.
The WRX is 300hp in a very light car....very fast.
Now that I have my 2014 1LE, not even the same Mustang GT owner who tried to mess with my WRX....will mess with me.
Saw him this morning and he behaved himself.
muhaha

You know, its funny you mention that, because i have noticed the same thing. When i was driving my V6 camaro with the RS badge, i would get at least 2 or 3 people a week trying to race me, and how with the 1LE ive had none.

I guess people know....

I thought they needed the track pack to hang with the 1LE?

Damn, all you AZ guys on here. When the tracks open back up, we should organize a Camaro vs. Mustang drag strip/auto-x/road course day, or maybe even a nice GM/Ford cruise up to Payson or Prescott or something. The 89 is pretty nice now that it's repaved and we can get organized front row parking on Whiskey Row so we can park all our cars in front of the restaurants up there.

Hell ya! Im always down for some racing/fun runs. ALL Camaro gatherings are boring in my opinion. Would love to do a Camaro/Mustang/Challenger/Charger drive/race. That would be fun as hell! Was planning on heading up to Wild Hore Raceway this weekend for its Run What Ya Brung race days, but its all arm drops, no timing system yet. Killed the mood for me.

Yeah that's a bummer with no timing, it's not worth going at that point. I'm totally down for the big 3 cruise, especially now that the weather is cooling off.

I owned a 2007 Mustang GT, which I really liked, but there is no way it can hang with a 1Le!
Also, my 2013 Subie WRX always had to hit the brakes on the highway on ramp behind the guy with that GT, cuz that GT cannot handle the curve at 100+mph...when I would lead, he couldnt keep up. No surprise....although I liked my GT, the handling was poop.
Oh...my WRX had the factory SPT exhaust....it was louder than my current 1Le lol!
Those pick up truck guys see a small car and their small brains say...ah doh....must be a whimpy four banger....my 2.5 ton truck with a Hemi will eat it...
Too bad they dont realize those late model subies are turbo charged 2.5 litre flat four boxer engines that are very fast.
Now, woth my 1Le I ignore anyone who is "not worthy"....which is 99% of the cars out there lol.

That would be great fun. I live in the Cochise corner of Arizona, lots of big country abounds here with light traffic. I was planning to do a US 191 run, north of Morenci to Alpine there's a lot of shifting with three 9,000'+ passes to ascend/descend. The scenery is world class with a number of picture pull offs for for those so inclined.

INDE (Willcox) will be open for track racing October 12-13, gotroost will be driving his Jannetty cammed/Pfadt suspension LS3, there should be some ZL1s running as well. If anyone is interested in running the track, change over to a DOT 4 break fluid as "normal" break fluid heats up and boils when racing.

There's also a large car show in Sierra Vista (4600') on the 12th, a dyno will be at the show, cost for three pulls should be in the $45-$60 range. One of our Cochise guys will be dynoing his new Shelby GT500 Mustang, I've ridden in it and it's a really nice ride with brutal acceleration.

^ That sounds good. I'll see about getting the 12th and the 13th off, that's a short drive for me.

This.

My car got the SW ZL1 retro exhaust treatment and is REALLY loud (can't wait to cam it). 500 crank is a start but I make no illusion about being the fastest but it keeps "fast n furious" wannabes at bay..

I'll oblige you, lol. I live in the vicinity of Warner and Elliot.

I'd be down for a cruise if you guys want to cruise up to Payson or Prescott.
