if you don't enjoy driving the STi something is seriously wrong with you...

congrats on the car! i remember having to wait my week to pick up my STi. man that was the longest week ever! i was on winter break too. no job, no friends in town either.

i'd tell you what i ran but i'm embarressed. :tdown:

local guy here in dayton ran a 13.1 on street tires - with vids to prove it. i ran on a different track on a hot day with <lots o' other excuses> and ran a 14.2 as my fastest. in my defense: my friends GTO ran a 13.9 my other friends SC'ed SVT cobra ran a 13.9 and we were all completely street. spare tire still in, standard street tire pressure. etc.

my best 60' was 1.9 -- had never even gone to the drag strip before. i've only autoX'ed. which you should definately try if you havent.

those are pretty good times i went a 13.2 in my focus but that was with a built motor and a turbo that is impressive they run that fast stock. now talking to you guy's friday can't come fast enough. ill post pic's when i get it i searched everywhere in md for blk with gold rims and finnally found one.

Congrats on both counts! :) Just got my 06 a few weeks ago, and you will LOVE this car! Needed something more practical then my usual 2 seater to accomodate the girlfriend, her kid, and a few RC airplanes. Figured so long as I went "practical" it could be fast too... ;) It's my favorite car to date!
