I already beat a viper with stock wrx sedan. Really I did.
Does it matter that I shot the driver before we raced?
On a serious note, one of the best things almost happen to me last thursday. It was 1am and I was at a stop light. (Route 59 and 34 for anyone who lives near Aurora, IL) Next thing you know an STI pulls an aisle away from me. (3 aisle street) We gave each other the thumbs up. Seconds later a new red Viper pulls in between us! I started to rev my engine( I knew I was going to get my butt handed to me) but the driver in the Viper looked at me and pointed back. When I looked back first thing I see is an Aurora Police Car. DAMMIT. Oh well.
The cars oppisite of us were honking the horns so we could all race but they did not see the police car.
Aurora Police are cool and in the next stop light the STI turned right, the viper moved over and the APD unit pulled in between. He asked me if I actually expected to beat the viper or if I just wanted to see him take off.
Oh well, maybe next time.
