    08 WRX vs 05 STI

    So tonight on my way home from selling some rims to a nice ol chap i came upon a 05 STI. He passed me and i decided to catch up to have a word with him, i guess he thought i wanted to race cuz he started to give it gas then lay off. He was backfiring up a storm, then he got stuck behind a car and i dropped it to third and passed him. he then caught up once again passed me and backfired.

    We pull up to a light i roll my window down to talk

    me: that sh*t stage 2?
    him: more.
    me: 2.5?
    him: yeap.

    So the light turns green and we both go casually, and almost like we both sensed it at the same time gunned it. He pulled on me 2 cars and it remained there until i backed off and he then let off and a 3' fireball blows out the back of his car and i about crapped myself!

    I take it this fellow cannot drive his car, cuz there is no way my 2008 WRX bone stock, should get beat only by 2 car lengths by a 2005 STI stage 2.5

    Stage 2.5 STI? What the hell is that?

    Glad to see the 08 held up well. Stock 08 vs Stock STI, STI will win, but the 08 will put up a better fight than previous years. Stage 2 08, should beat a Stock STI.

    You sure it was an STI and not a stage 2.5 wrx with STI wing?

    Either way, stage 2.5 wrx or stage2 STI should be putting more distance on you than that. Either he couldn't drive or wasn't giving it his all.

    I really want to see how the 08's do with tbe and OTS ECU mapping.

    yeah it was a STI cuz when he passed me hit back kicked out, so he must transfer most his power to the rear.

    it also hald BBS gold rims, as well as the STI spoiler, and sat pretty low

    You can just get a custom exhaust.

    well you said he pulled 2 lengths but.... to what mph did you stop at? that could tell us alot. Because if he pulled 2 cars out of a 1st gear roll, then you stopped at 60 then that makes alot of sense. Try going to about 100-110 then see how far he pulls.

    I raced an 08 STi last night pinks for pinks with my neon!

    I was behind, pushed the NOS button, and caught up, but then the floorboard shot out of my car!

    The cops came, and some Japanese guys shot my car. Now I owe him a 5 second car. Oh well.. such is life.
