His redline was low and WRX are at 7k so you could see him switch gears around 6k and then I would change at 7k which gave me a 1/2 a seconds to inch past him in every gear. He did lose but only because the 18G's power is at the end of the gear and he was losing power at the end of his gears.
    The car wasn't a stage 3 or a really poor driver with a poorly modified car. The first nsrt to go 10s was a stage 3 turboed car. Stage 3 revs to 6500 btw.

    numbers seem very conservative for an 18g, even with stock IC. Perhaps a conservative tune to prevent detonation from hot incoming charge? I'm willing to bet you'd see 60+ whp increase from a larger TMIC (perhaps larger than STi) and a more aggressive tune. What's your peak boost pressure right now, around 18 PSI?

    about 18psi. The tech said he will tune for 20 when I upgrade the IC.

    I feal bad for this guy. he obviously isnt super smart(i can relate). Hes going to get hammered by the law unless he has important friends/family. the guy is only 20 his bac was .12 i understand .08 is the limit but .12 is def not the worst ive seen. the 150 mph well i cant say ive done that with a car but on my rocket b4 def hit over 180 a few times (sober). I dont support his behavior but i feal he will pay the price for many of us because he got cought.

    P.S i think a accident would have tought him alot more than the courts ever will.

    in most states just that speed alone is a quick way to the slammer.. let alone doing it intoxicated with friends in the car.

    In a neon... at that speed an accident would have killed them all.

    I dont feel bad in the least.. every single bit of what he did was avoidable.. and should have been avoided.

    [QUOTE=mangostick;2691310]in most states just that speed alone is a quick way to the slammer.. QUOTE]

    Here +100 is a felony

    and i def agree he should experience the full extent of the law he could of killed him his friends and others as well, not something that should be taken lightly at all,...

    I personally had a slip up while on a private road that we had set up a lil rally, nothing super awesome but fun enough, i admit i had about 3 beers ( i know ill get hell for sayin that but had to be honest) within prob a 2-3 hr period, now when i do drink i can take quite a bit so not sayin i was sober but def not close to bein buzzed, on a completly safe track away from ppl and other drivers so thought i was ok.... WRONG! hit a curb type thing and toasted my controll arm among other things, only my bug eye was injured but opened my eyes extremly wide and couldnt help blame the alch as well, slow reaction sloppy peddal work, whatev happened it was my fault and the actions i had done, i was really lucky and would never place anyone in harms way like that ever again no matter, since then ive walked over 9 miles to avoid driving drunk... good choice in my eyes lol

    What im getting at is kinda like that song by incubus "drive" knowing how close to danger ive been i would avoid at any cost and urge all i can and see to do the same.

    Its fun to drive fast but even the pro's make mistakes sober just goes to show ya how fragile life is and what can be done to pro-long it,

    yea, you may as well earn your wreckless driving.... and instigate a small chase... If I'm getting arrested i may as well have some fun.... see how fast those crown vic cherries shrink during a 8 second blast from 60-120, then I'd pull over and hope to get clubbed so I could get out of it....

    Hell, if they havent called the chopper out, your car just isnt fast enough

    I've passed a cop doing over 120 and just hit the gas harder (more than once). Like you said, you're going to jail anyway at that speed and if you go by fast enough where you don't see the lights, you can make a plausible claim you didn't see them right away so didn't pull over. Just make sure you pull over before you get to the roadblock. And police choppers only do 140 max so as long as you can go faster than that, and the road is straight so they can't cut corners, they can't keep up with you.
    <extra flame suit on>

    I have a buddy that was doing the old coast to coast race in a modified 911 Turbo and passed a cop doing over 150 in Texas. He just kept going until about 10 miles later there were two cops stopped in the middle of the highway with AR-15s pointed at the car. After a $5000+ fine and a bunch of lawyer bills it was taken care of.
