So I just encountered a mini cooper s on the thruway, it was at least an 07 because I did some research on them after this and could tell by the grill. Iím not big on mini's so I didnít know they put turbos in them since 07, I thought they still s/c them.
Some background I drive an 05 wrx, 35,000miles on it with just a cbe for now.
The mini looked at least like it had aftermarket exhaust. I do not know the guy so I didnít know for sure if he had anything else done.
Well he got behind me and was on my bumper doing about 50mph, I could hear his engine so im assuming he was at least in third/fourth. So I shifted to third and gunned it. To my surprise, he was doing a decent job keeping up. I backed off at around ninety. I gained a few feet on him but that was all. He gave me the thumbs up and that was it.
I know their four/five hundred pounds lighter and have a six speed, but is this what I should expect in a 50 roll race?
