I raced a newer mini today and that this was fast, we were fooling around for awhile and finally got to run, I started in 2nd gear at about 2500rpms and he got an immidiate 2 1/2 car jump on me, I could hear his supercharging whining it was very loud, I finally reeled him in at around 3rd gear, I was completly shocked at how fast it was in a straight line, I knew they were great handlers but its speed shocked me.
I have a v7 swapped WRX and I thought I would blow by him like nothing I was wrong wich leads me to several possible conclusions:
A.) I am a horrible driver and because of that he was that fast. (Not fond of this but it could be.)
B.) He has many many mods to make him that fast.
C.) There is something wrong with my car, and It needs fixing so that doesnt happen again.
Does anyone know about mini's, or what could have possiblly been done to make it so fast?
