Some of you may remember my post asking if it was worth it to race a lightning..........well i found out the answer today. I figured aw, hell, ill do it. We did a highway pull and then from a dig to about 70.
Highway pull: turned out MUCH better than i expected. We started out around 35mph and i was in 2nd. I hit boost almost instantly, and started to pull away, but as i shifted into 3rd, i heard that supercharger howling and he flew by me.
From a dig: much like i expected. My launch was sweeet, but bad for the car no doubt. I took it up to about 5k and, with intentions of slipping the clutch out like i have been told, i haven't practiced this too much so i ended up pretty much dropping it. (i heard a loud "POP"....is that really bad? car seems fine). Anyway i was ahead through first, and almost all of second. He started gaining on me reeeeeeally fast right as i was about to shift to 3rd. And once again, i heard the supercharger howling and there he went.
Overall it was what i expected, but i am not at all ashamed of the way the stock WRX performed. Now i just have to mod it!!! (btw both cars had 3 people).
