    WRX vs. Corvette

    So I am on my way to the airport to pick up a buddy and I am behind a 98/99 Corvette. We are at a light waiting to turn left and the light turns green and he doesn't go, he just sits there. I was pretty mad because it is a short light...soo...I turned left into a gas station to cut through so I could keep going. At that time he decided to go and we meet side by side on the next road, from there I got past him so I could turn right onto the interstate. He followed.

    He starts tailgating me on the onramp so I figure what the heck, lets give it a shot. I start off in 2nd gear and floor it, I was ahead of him all the way until 120 and then he passed me and I stopped around 130. He slowed down and gave me the surprise thumbs up. He turned out to not be a complete idiot. I gave him a thumbs up and went on my way.

    Now I know, my car isn't as fast as a new vette, but against a late 90's, possibly automatic Corvette, I held up pretty well until the dreaded 4th gear.

    What road(s) were you on? The only thing that has challenged me here since I got my car over a year ago, was an '02 M3, which surprisingly resulted in embarrassment for the M3 driver (I nailed the launch and the M3 driver missed third). This was on Mboro Rd where Briley crosses over it going towards town.

    Do you have any mods on your car?
