    STI vs Cobra

    So i am driving along minding my own business when a black 04 comes flying by me. Man those things are quick...So he jumps in front of me and i could tell he was catless attributed to the fact fire was coming out his exhaust and it also smelled different.

    So wanting to hear that sweet sweet supercharger whine i go WOT to catch up...i line myself up and slow to about 40 mph still in 1st gear...then i decided nah i can do this from 2nd...didnt want to hit redline too fast....I look next to me and hes holding 3 fingers in the air im assuming he means on 3 beeps, so i hear one beep and he goes...i was like where are you going that was one?

    I catch back up to him and he rolls down the window and basically has a seizure because i didnt go on 3 beeps...i honestly only heard 1. So we line up again from 40 and this time i hear the beeps and we go...i immediately gain 1/2 a car length and continue to pull all the way through 4th gear. By the end i could easily see the head lights in my rearview....

    Overall it was a good race

    My car is stock...i think the story was confusing i drive the cobra. I actually almost traded it for an STI...so dont flame me just yet

    STI can hold their own against cobras especially out the hole. Top end though thats a different story. I will agree that Ford sucks...but the SVT is really another world.

    The most confusing part of this story is that you wanted to hear the "Supercharge whine"... so I figured it was a supercharged cobra.
