Im not totally surprised by the outcome. From a dig, since he can't launch, your boost is coming on WAY sooner than his so while hes still building boost you're pulling away. If he launched hard it would be a lot closer, but hey that's driving. From a roll it depends on how fast u go. When my sti was stock, my roommate's 06 wrx was stage 2. we raced from 20 to only 75. he pulled first since his boost is hitting sooner, i caught him and passed half a car as i went through 3rd gear, 4th i continued passing then we shut down. your boy needs some practice driving and that should close the gap. a poorly driven sti is easy prey for a well driven stg 2 rex.
