    WRX vs 350Z video inside!

    http://mywebpages.comcast.net/davidjoye/wrxvsz1.wmv

    A friend and I were out having some fun.

    The video says I have "JDM Headers", that's a typo because they edited the video and asked what mods I had so I told them yadda yadda then "JDM Headrests" so I guess they thought I meant "headers" heh. Bad joke I guess.

    4th gear is where the car fell on it's face. hehehe It was good fun though! I guess I could've launched better but I zoned out and bounced off the rev limiter. It was funny because both of us zoned out as we were supposed to GO on the third beep but something came over us.

    Anyway, I hung in there a lot better than our previous little run. We went at it about a year ago when I was catless but I had an MBC, now I've got an XEDE in place of that and it really seemed to help out. Last year it seemed like he caught up when I was at the top of 2nd gear, I was able to hold him off for an entire extra gear this time. I told him we can go at it again when I finally get my VF22 and accessories installed.

    What mph did you shut down? Could you have him in the quarter or do you think he would reel you in before you got there?

    Do you have a catless uppipe, too? Good run...you can definitely see the WRX 4th gear poop.

    I don't remember, he doesn't remember, heh. I only paid attention to RPMs so since I'm sure I shifted out of 3rd at around 6000RPMs and I still had some room in 4th I think we probably reached 100MPH and shut down. I'm thinking he'd reel me in in the 1/4 but I'm not really sure.

    Yeah, I've got a gutted OEM up-pipe, the rest is a TurboXS 2.5" turbo-back with the Magnaflow muffler and of course the Xede piggy-back computer.

    I wonder if a full 3" exhaust would have made a difference?

    yucky launch on your part. If you had a better launch he wouldn't have caught you in 4th. It seemed like he launched just as you did and you pulled out when shifting into 2nd.

    Here's a launch I did:

    My car is on the left vs. a 5.0 Mustang (modded) I wouldn't have beat him if I didn't launch well.

    Heh yeah, my launch (if you can call it that) totally sucked compared to your's. I can see how it would've helped me but I'm glad it didn't; notice why at the end of the race?

    It's time for suspension mods and GOOD tires but I want POWER first, arg.

    I have my bad launches too. Can't be precise all the time. Yeah I went with power first. My car looks stock besides the HKS exhaust sticking out and the sound my car makes.

    Yeah, there was a slight corner at the end there so I had to turn and brake at the same time going pretty fast. Maybe I braked too hard. The WRX should really come with more harsh suspension but I guess they used what was good enough.
