This race just happened on the way back from getting some lunch.
I was making a left onto a 4 lane highway that leads back to my workplace when I noticed a 1st gen talon behind me with a big monster tach. I made the left like normal and was doing about 40 mph in 3rd when in the rear view I noticed his car squat and start gaining on me pretty quickly. He caught up to my rear bumper when I downshifted into Second. He never caught me. By 115 or so I was several cars ahead so we both shut down.
I look ahead and we are coming up to a red light, both lanes clear! Needless to say, I'm pretty pumped. We line up and we both roll our windows down and I ask if he wants to go at the light. "No, I'm having problems with my cams. They're wearing down." ..... ok, so why did you try and race me from a roll? I asked him what he had done and he said "16g" at which point I asked big or small, to which he answered big.
Anyways, when the light turned green I went like normal until he hit it in front of me. Same story as before, with me reeling him in pretty quickly. Overall he was a pretty cool guy. He did mention that his friend just bought an STi.
