I had a couple of good runs with a 'rex about a week ago in orange county (specific location omitted as it is a great spot for racing).
Anyway, we were both stopped at a red light. I was checking out his ride and noticed the silver WRX was all tricked out with stickers galore (the largest one being Renick Subaru). The only visual performance mod I could see was an exhaust.
With all that flash I couldn't resist; when the light turned green, I launched. By about 100, I had at least 4 cars and then shut down. In defense of the WRX, I don't think he was expecting a run and didn't launch until he heard me burn 'em.
After he caught up, we got caught in some traffic so we really couldn't run again. He ended up weaving through traffic in front of me and I noticed him about to make a left turn onto another street. I decided to follow to get in one more run, this time with him better prepared.
As he made the left, he slowed to almost a crawl into the #1 lane. As I made the turn behind him attempting to go into the #2 lane, he launched giving him the launch and a one car head start. When he shifted to 2nd he pulled a few feet and then I pulled back and ended with my bumper around his rear door. It stayed the same through third until we came to a sharp right turn where we were both going way too fast. He started drifting a bit into my lane in order to make the turn and I ended up jumping on the brakes and my car got a little squirly(stock Jetta suspensions suck, whew that was scary!)
Overall a very close run. Does anyone know who owns this car and what mods he has? My mods are APR chip and Milltek exhaust.
