    My EVO vs. Someone Here???

    I was coming home right now, about 45 mins ago on the 405fwy in my Red EVO, and a guy with a Silver WRX with nice Rims and exhaust note pulled along side me. He gave me the thumbs up, and I did so to and wanted to run me, so I said what the heck. I down shifted as he did from about 70mph and he was with me the whole time. I was only about half a car on him till about 110 and we shut down cuz of incoming traffic.

    I was wondering if that was someone here? It was a great race and was wondering what he had done to his car because it seemed like he was inching on me before we shut down
    Good race though

    Why didn't you shift it into 4th? At 70mph I can shift my WRX into 3rd until 90mph. I guess it's because yours a 6-speed....

    Why do you think he didn't shift into 4th? He started out at around 70 in third and took it up to 110.... he had to shift to 4th. And we have a 5 speed, not a 6 speed.

    I thought he was crusing in six and then down shift to 5th. I thought he meant a STi. Read too fast...

    ii know atleast on the 07 WRX's doesn't third gear redline at 84mph. in which case downshifting to third at 90 would be a little intense.

    Bumping old threads in this particular forum is rather silly.
