Well I got in a second race last night with a z28 convertible camero. Had a much better launch and easy shifting than my last race. I was ahead a whole car length and pushing red line in third gear when it looked like he was going to make a come back. However, a car up ahead was acting like it was going to turn onto the road we were racing on so he slowed it down and so did I. We exchanged a few kind words out the window and went our separate ways.
Now I feel like I've had a chance to play with my WRX some... And a vast improvement over my first race with the mazda6. I think I'll take it easy on the car for awhile and just enjoy the drive. Sorry for making you guys listen to my stupid race stories
