Bored at home and thought I'd share what I experienced tonight at one of NYC's street racing spots. I got 3 good runs tonight and 2 was vs. a turbo'd hatchback civic. It was basically the normal 1-1.5 cars at the start as I pump the throttle to 4k and slowing slipping the clutch. First race i had 2 cars on him on 2nd and as I shifted to 3rd, I slowly pulled away til 5th gear, looked like he was pulling slowly but the race had to end. The 2nd race was just a blow out. Seemed like he dropped his clutch at a too high RPM and spun tires through gears, so AWD pwnd right there. The B18 civic was mod'd with a t3/t4 turbo @16psi, FMIC and all that goodies.
Now there was this black evo that wanted to race a stage 1 WRB WRX that I rolled with. I dont know the dude but we met in the gas station and we were the only subies around. If youre in here whats up! Anyways he lost to the evo by 2 cars. So I said what the heck. I had to represent. By the way the car sounded and looked like he only had a intake and BOV. Well I lined up and waited but noone wanted to line up til the evo came back from the race with the WRB. He immediately made a U turn and got my left. Again I'm pumping my throttle and slipped the clutch as the flagger threw the flag down. I instantly got 1 car in front of him and stayed like that til 4rd thro 5th where he pulled right at my quarter panel and the race ended @105. I asked for a second race since it was the driver's skill involved more then the car but it was his last race. But still, I got 1 evo kill on my list and another 1 for the subie community.
(BTW I raced the evo first and it was my first KILL w/ the rex. I just had to save the first race for a good challenge.)
here's some pics. she's a pure sleeper with the evo2 <- the cars is pretty quiet
