    I was dead even with a GT

    I took my axleback off for the day and went around town looking for competition and found a silver GT 5 spd at the light. I looked at him and he heard the throaty ass boxer. So we turned the corner and as soon as i put it in 2nd i was about 45 or 50, then he gunned it and i heard him and i look in my side mirror and he is still the same distance he was before, without the axle back this thing screams man. I also was even with LT1 model z28 it was a convertible, we raced from 15 and up and we head to head, these were my first two races ever with my car, i just broke it in today.

    A WRX can handle a GT, if the WRX is well driven.

    Shifting depends on situation...sometimes I'm not paying close enough attention to the tach, so it runs up to 7K before you know what happened...

    Mustangs are really not a challenge for a well driven WRX.

    I was dead even with a newer gt from 0-70. I had two people in my car. It sounded like he had exhaust.
