Hate to Admit it, I got owned by a Subaru!!

I was driving back from San Diego this past weekend coming home to Vegas and got PWNED by a SUBARU!! ahhhh the shame, the embarresment....

I was on the 15N playing a little highway leapfrog with this white subaru and he just takes off, I hit the gas in hot pursuit and as I hit a little over 120 my engine limiter (or whatever it is called) kicks in and my horsepower is gone and the subaru becomes a speck in the distance. Who knew? He was probably clocking at least 130, I didn't know an outback could go that fast? I could understand if it was a WRX or something like that, but it was just a regular outback.

I am going to go sit and cry for a little bit now.

The subaru must have cheated

Just look at the bright side, at least you didn't get owned by a Cavalier or something

I believe the ECU has us limited to 118

Although it your speedometer was showing past 120, that would indicate that it reads faster than our actual speed.

Interesting...

Hate the limiter... I was doing a little less than 190 km/h when it kicked in and this M3 zoomed past by me :?. Not like I had a chance but it would be nice if I can go faster.

Gotta install an A'PEXi RSM and break the limiter.

That doesn't mean much. A light car with 160hp can beat a heavy car with 250hp. What I like to look at is the power to weight ratio. That is a more accurate way of judging which car would, in theory, win a race.
