When I first got my 02 about a month and a half ago I raced my friends GSR and lost by a car from 60mph in third. Last week I finally put my invida down pipe on to go with my apexi cat-back. I raced my friend again who had beaten a stock SS cobalt from 40mph twice and lost twice from sixty. I beat him like 4 times from 60mph and once from 40mph I was wondering if this was respectable or do I have a lemon. when we raced the second time it was like my car would just jump out about a car and then stay there up to whatever speed we went to. I figured that was because the wrx has no top end or so I've been told or because the gsr got into its very sequential 5spd and stayed in its peak rpms or power band pretty much. plus he got the jump from 40 but again I pulled back to a car out in from no problem. otherwise I think that I would have at least pulled another half a car or so added on.
