About a month ago I decided I wanted to see which was faster; my Camaro or my STi, so I got my wife to drive my Camaro, while I drove the STi.
I thought FOR SURE that the STi was going to thrash the Camaro, but it didn't happen. We started out on the highway, and I was in 3rd gear, and being one of the "power gears," I thought for sure that it was going to be the end of the Camaro. We both hit the gas, and took off. I shifted to 4th, but the Camaro wouldn't fade. All I saw was the front end of the Camaro next to me "lurch" as it made its way through its gears. We shut down at around 100 mph, and it was still side by side.
So, who won? Nobody. I was pretty happy with those results, because I love both of my cars equally, and would hate to see one beat the other one.
