    I beat some kinda sports bike (I have no idea what kind, not really my thing). It was raining, so I had a serious advantage there. Took off from a light up to about 70 and I was a nose ahead of him. VDC light flashing like crazy As I was turning off he kept revving his engine at me for a rematch. Sore loser I guess.

    Merging onto interstate behind a 2001? Transam, Shining Red, fancy wheels, personalized plates. He was accelerating fast but not wide open. I pulled into passing lane with my '09 WRX Wagon, Cobb, SPT exh. Noticed a puff of smoke from his duals, by this time I was in 3rd. For a split second we were dead even, then as the turbo spooled up, I began pulling away and by this time passing a car, the Pontiac pulled around to pass but abruptly pulled back into the slow lane and shut down, exited freeway. I really thought it would be a tight race. It was not even close. Is there that much difference between acceleration of the WRX and a beefy V8 Pony Car????

    If it "wasn't even close", then he wasn't in the gas..assuming an LS1 T/A in good condition.

    Heh, finding a 4th Gen F-Body in any sort of "Good" condition is a rare find. I used to be all into the 4th gen camaros and trans ams back when i had my '96 Z28

    By "good condition" I meant "engine running well".

    I wasnt pulling away crazy fast, just pulling ahead. I have owned LT1 Camaros when new, and they were pretty fast. But seat of the pants tells me driving a wrx is somewhat like riding a large chain saw....

    What makes you think that? Any why would he be revving his engine at me afterward? Did I mention it was raining?

    I dont think its unrealistic. 2001 trans am has 325 hp and weight over 3400 lbs. I am assuming when you say you have cobb you mean a stage one tune which means you probably have close to 290hp?

    Sounds about even to me, but considering you saw smoke come from his exhaust I would say he wasnt running 100% effecient.
