It started off with me chillin, right off base, at an All-Sups gas station. This nice looking Yellow evo pulled up next to us, goes in the store and on his way out I yell out "thats a nice car you got there" he compliments me on the same, and we get to talking. I later find out, hes been wanting to race a STi, seeing how theres only 1 on base, Mine, and maybe 2 in the whole town. Theres like an infestation of evo's running around here. Well I also find out, his mods are as follows:
Evo:Tbe, Intake, bigger fuel pump, and some avr something, didnt understand him, im thinking Boost controller, with aftermarket clutch.
Well we decide to race, with all our friends watching, a auto WS-6, 400whp Blue Evo, h-22 75 shot gutted hatch, white stock evo, Silver stock evo.
We raced 3 Times, all from dead stops. I have just barely learned my car's tranny, and clutch, since this is my first stick. His friend flags us, on a VERY VERY deserted hick town road.
Race 1: I get the launch, and hold a 1.5 car lead till about 110 where he begins to catch up, but I shut down, considering thats a little past the 1/4 mile, I think he would have caught me at 120 or so.
Race 2: We launch about the same, but my second gear just rips him, and I get a good .5 to 1 car, and I finish at 110 by about .5 cars
Race 3: He jumps his friends hands, and I shut down at 2nd gear, cause I knew I didnt have enough to begin to catch up to him.
All in All I just very very much surprised I even kept up with him. I was pretty intimidated, seeing how he was a good driver, and he had modifications, plus racing from a stop (my advantage) versus another AWD car. I kept telling him how I couldnt believe I didnt get blasted away, and he kept saying "you should have more confidence, those STi's are no joke, I knew you would either hang, or get me, I just didnt know by how much." I have to give it to him, he did have from 110- up topend on me, maybe because of the mods.
