Ok, I'm new to the forum....I drive an 03 Acura RSX Type S. I almost bought a WRX (its was a very tough choice) so I wandered onto this forum.
Anywho, I'm on a two lane highway that has a series of lights. I come up to one and black WRX pulls next to me, it looks and sounds stock. We both look at eachother and it was on. Light turns green, I dump the clutch at around 3k and got an okay launch. We're pretty close but he pulls ahead by about 1/2 a car before we have to shut it down for the next red light. I figure if I get a better launch I can pull ahead....maybe Light goes green, I get a great launch, run it up to 8k in first and by second I had him by almost a whole car length. By time I hit fourth he's at least a couple cars behind. I know a WRX is a couple tics faster than my Acura, but it seems to be a driver's race when the two go head to head. Well, finally beat a WRX made my day.......now I just gotta work on smoking Mustangs
