    STi vs. LT1 Trans AM

    On the way home from the Suby meet tonight I ran into a Trans AM. Since my recent encounter with an Camaro SS, I have wanted another F-Body to race me. Well, tonight was my night...

    Total of 3 races and the outcomes are exactly what I expected...

    1st race:
    Again I was caught off guard, I thought he had no intentions of racing until he took off. So, again I started in 4th and sat right at his rear quarter panel.

    2nd race:
    This time, I knew he wanted to go, so I down shifted to third. We paced for a bit, then both took off. I instantly picked up a car length and kept gaining until the end of third, when I had about 1.5-2 car lengths, put it into fourth and kept pulling.

    3rd race:
    We pulled over after the 2nd race and he told me he had minor bolt ons and a stall converter. We agreed to one more run, to see who would win. Best of 3! Anyway, we were pacing agian with me in 3rd, when the road opened up to a straight away, we both smashed our gas pedals. I pulled hard in third and easily had 2 cars by the end of the gear. I put it into fourth and pulled a bit more, but let off, since to me the race was over.

    At the next light we both went our seperate ways and he was very impressed with my car. It's good to me non-ignorant domestic owners from time to time. Same goes for the honduh bois! I hate running into a ignorant car own period, but lately it seems like that is all that is out there.

    **Disclaimer** All of this was computer generated. Street Racing is VERY VERY bad and should not be tried at home. Have a nice night!

    That's pretty damn impressive, how much power are you supposed to be putting down with the stg 2 map on the STi?

    Cobb claims 350bhp. If you use that and factor out a 20% drivetrain loss, you should ideally net 280whp. Again this is the numbers they claim...

    ^ Honestly, I have no clue... There would be a lot of factors, such as gear, power band, and tons more. The best way to find out is to have a race between a stage 4 WRX and stage 2 STi.
