This isn't really a kill but it got me wondering:
I was out driving today and was coming up on a red light with a row of cars in the left lane and the right lane open. This lane ends about 1/8 mile after the light, so there is ample time to get over (nice speed limit too - 80km/h.) Anyhow, as I pull into the right line a guy in a Magnum RT pulls infront of me into the lane as well. So now I'm hoping this guy is going to gun it so that we can make it over. The light turns and I hear him spin his tires a bit (some light rain had just ended.) So I go about 80% throttle in 1st and 2nd and stay about 2 car lengths behind. I stabbed the throttle at the top of 2nd and into 3rd to see if I could close the distance and found that I could rather easily. We are both well past the cars in the left lane and merge over at around 110-120km/h. At this point we both back off due to some really slow cars (doing about 70km/h in an 80.)
Now I'm sure he wasn't gunning it 100% but he certainly wasn't taking it easy either. I looked up the specs online and was amazed to see that the Magnum RT puts out 340hp and 390lb-ft! I did a little more research and found the RT traps between 97-100mph but has an average 0-60 time (granted it weighs almost 4200lbs.)
So what do you think? The STi should be able to slowly pull past a Magnum RT at WOT right? From a stop I know it should be no contest. I'm still waiting to go to the track but my STi seems to be running strong, I'm at about 500ft or so, and running 94 octane, so I would guess (if I can drive ) that I might see 102-103 traps. God I wish the track wasn't 2 hours away.
Edit: I shouldn't really post at 3am. I'm not even really sure the point of this post...just trying to kill some time and get sleepy. Damn insomnia... Sorry guys.
