Coming home the other night and I get surrounded by all these lowered stickered cars. Dont recall all of them but they were just begging me to run. There was one WRX (black/blue) and 2 Eclipse and couple others. I was going 60 MPH and put it into 3rd. I gave them the jump. 2 cars hung for a little bit until I built up RPMs. The WRX and one of the slammed Eclipses which I thought I heard a turbo.
After 80/90 MPH I was pulling away pretty hard. Maybe 4 cars. I shut off.
They followed me to the exit I took which led to another 55 MPH 3 lane road. No one on the road. We slow to about 10/15 and talked. They wanted to run them from a 10 MPH roll. The only 2 that tried were the WRX and the one Eclipse the others hung behind.
From a 10/15 roll (where the 03 Cobra SHINES) to about 120+ it was prolly 7+ cars. I pulled on them pretty hard in first and 2nd. I hook pretty good cause the tires where warm from being on the highway a while and the last run.
We stopped at a local fast food place and they were all pretty impressed with the 03 Cobra. The WRX guy said it was a "Stage 4"... The Eclipse had ALL this yellow crap around his engine and a SC or a turbo (i didnt ask but I could tell from the intake pipes).
The Stage4 WRX was however taking the Eclipse by about 2+ or so cars from what I could tell.
I can put about 3+ cars on a Z06 from a 15 roll. But the Z06 has given me much more of a fight than that Stage 4.
Maybe the guy really did not have a Stage 4. Dunno. From the time's I've seen the Stage 4's are doing 12.7 - 12.9's and my car is capable of a 11.5 with better tires. From a 15 MPH roll they got slaughtered. I should be around 1.2+ seconds faster.
It was fun. I think the WRX would have faired better from a stop. Prolly 4-5 cars and not 7+.
