So I met one on the street and we went from 2 second gear rolls and I got him both times by about a car and a half. We talked later on a local racing board and I found out he just got the car and all it has is an intake. He was very surprised that I pulled away from him since he has beat other stock STi's. Well all of the local evo lovers started talking alot of **** on the internet and another race was arranged this time it was to go from a dig. May I remind you that my car is just a baby with only 1500 miles on it and I had not launched it up until this point or any AWD car for that matter.
Cars pull up to the line and we decide to shut down at 105mph. I raise the rpms to 4500 and he is on factory 2 step, arms drop and we are off. I bog alittle, he seemed to bog alittle more than I. I pull him to 105mph and win by about 4 cars. No BS.... Alittle background on the EVO driver: He just bought the car as well and has launched it a few times prior but has never had a performance car before so his driving is not up to par.
I get a killer launch this time, tires spin alittle and the backend gets alittle loose but launches me right into boost. I beat him by 4-5 cars this time and he even admits that he got a decent launch this race. I asked if he wanted to go again and I quote him when he says "No, I have had enough".
So the lesson is that you should probably not talk such a big game on the internet and then get your ass busted in real life.
I know you guys will most likely call BS on this but its true and I would imagine the results were mostly because of driving (I have been drag racing for 5+ years in mostly rwd v8 domestic vehicles so I have a fair share of racing experience).
I have also ran a turbo gsr integra that traps 106mph from a roll and he pulled about a car and ahlf on me so for whatever reason my trap speed must be higher than average STi's. Ok that is all, enjoy.....
