    Another...06 STi vs 06 EVO IX thread...

    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.

    Race #1:

    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.

    Race #2

    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.....

    Nice runs!

    At stock levels, both cars are close enough that it's the driver that makes the most difference.

    Once the modding begins though, all bets are off (although the driver is still the primary factor, especially going from a dig).

    Ya thats the sad truth of this situation but my car should be stage 2 by the beginning of the summer with a killer tune by Cavadini off the board. So I should be ready to put up somewhat of a fight against him since he will be modded by then as well I am sure.

    Well considering he is kind of a dumb**** it is hard to say. I am going to guess catback, maybe DP, MBC, and a BOV of course. I highly doubt any kind of engine management, I am not too worried about losing just b/c I have always had the "slower" car that beats the faster guys haha

    man, i remember my friends stock 9 trapped 100mph at LACR(slow and ****ty track), it was also his first time ever running a car in the 1/4 mile, did way better than i expected.

    my freinds 06 sti with turbo back, helper spring, aps TMIC, injen intake, and a reflash trapped 104mph at the same track, and he poured in 5 gallons of 114 octane gas into the tank.

    Why do I have a feeling I'll be seeing your friend on one of the Evo boards very soon complaining about how his car isn't running right...
