    06 WRX vs 05 Viper

    I was driving home one night and spotted a newer style Dodge Viper Convertible getting gas. So, I pulled in and waited till he was done filling up and followed him onto the highway. I got up next to him to see if he would go or not and at first he wasnt, must of been underestimating me.

    I eventually get him to go. I was going about 40ish or so in 2nd gear and I punch it. He jumps me off the gun but as soon as my turbo hit full boost, I walked by him and put 2 cars on him. I held it up through 4th gear and let off.

    The next weekend, word got around and I heard the story from other people. It was hilarious.

    This was on my 20g + methanol.

    This was from a 40 MPH roll? And you're putting down 383 WHP?

    I believe your story. It's the street, anything can happen. But I definitely would've lost the bet choosing between these two cars.

    Good kill!

    This seems quite possible at nearly 400whp. For the most part, I would put my money on the Viper, but I am not really surprised that you beat him with those mods.

    he probably didn't want to deal with your silly imature actions. I don't think he would of felt very proud destroying a little 4 cylinder that is a third of the price of his. come on dude. if that was a new viper, bro, he would of killed you. you aren't that stupid are you?
