    stg 2 sti vs 6.0 gto....

    So I haven't been to the track in a while, i usually don't race on the street, but I was rolling to a stoplight and already the guy in the blue GTO stopped at the light was revving.... There was no traffic in front of us, straight road ina 45mph zone...maybe not the smartest but I took the bait. Light turned green and of course I bogged, but he did too..... soooo I bogged less badly apparently b/c I was up 1/4 car when boost hit. Banged a perfect 1-2, he was at my bumper by the end of 2nd. I hit 3rd, only went till about 70. When i let off, just behind my rear bumper. The kid in his passenger side was just staring at me as he went into the next left turn lane. Felt pretty good, even thoguh I know it was dumb.... I know it was a 6spd, looked pretty stock, and I know the kid couldn't drive (how do you bog a 6.0L?), but even soooo, got the adrenaline going!!

    He probably bogged by not slipping the clutch enough, but then again with 6.0 shouldn't really matter that much lol.

    He was probably afraid of launching too hard and destroying his IRS. That is definately a driver's race on the street, so you were the the better driver of the two of you. Good kill.

    wheel hop is a pain with the IRS in the goat. My one outing at the track wasn't pretty, as I was hopping all over the place.

    Also, giving too much gas = roasting tires, not helpful in a race.

    It's an art I'm still learning myself.

    alex? what is he left the tcs on? answer, the reason he wasnt catching you after 40mph and the reason for a bogged launch. cant go no where when the rear brakes are being applyed. ok so it wasnt as funny as it was in head. anyway. but with 400hp on tap and traps in stock form reaching 110. i would think he would of caught up. either way thats why any thing can happen on the street. ne time slips?

    As for the race, nice kill. Though I imagine you probably would've gotten somewhat spanked if the guy had been a better driver.

    Not with a Stg. 2 STI...they can trap in the 109 range. That's far from spanking distance for a 6.0 GTO...
