I went to try and run a wrx a couple of times the other night and he would always puch it right before I could get along side of him. The final time we hit a U turn that when from one lane into 2 and I was behind him. I go to pull up next to him thinking that he wanted to play, so why not run side by side. By the time I was about a car length behind him, he slams on the gas and I follow.
I managed to pull up to the rear of his drivers side door by the time I hit 120. We slowed down then because lights on the side of the road, which turned out to be a pickup. He was modified with atleast some parts of an exhaust and a BOV and I have 2 friends in the car.
not bad for him having a whole car length head start.
The wrx guys I know all suck...they won't ever run from a roll or anything like that. Of course they're going to jump on me from a stop if they know how to launch, and they might even pull ahead depending on what mods they have....but NONE of them ever want to go from a roll...
