    Modded GTI

    I was dropping my friends girlfriend off on my way home last night. She loves my car and always wants me to drive it fast when she's in it. I usually do not acknowledge her requests, but tonite I decided to indulge a bit.
    I turned onto t 2 lane road (Dean Street in Englewood for the Bergen County people). I quickly pulled up next to a nice modded GTI and we both were ready to go but there were 2 cops sitting on the side of the road who I'm sure would have been all too eager to pull us over. So after we got a few blocks down, he floors and pulls in front of me and lets off. I return the favor. It went back and forth like this until we caught a light.
    We lined up and took off on green. I got about 1 car length with a decent launch despite my slipping clutch, but we both hit the brakes at about 50 because there was a curve up ahead. The curve has a posted speed of 15 mph and it was wet so we both took it easy.
    After the curve, just about everyone gets in the right lane to make a right at the next light, so I figured it would be a rat-race to get there. We took the corner side by side. Since I was on the inside I had to wait just a fraction longer than him to get on it. By the time i hit the gas he was ~1 car length from me. I was able to pass him by ~65 and get to the corner before him. Mind you this whole time this girl is in my front seat giggling uncontrolably. I hit the corner a little fast (although not any faster than I do when I wanna get a nice drift through this corner) so I came around the curve with the back end out a little. I looked in my rearview and saw the GTI fly around the corner (and get a little squirely), pull up next to me and give me a thumbs up. I returned the favor and we parted. Nice guy, fun race.

    Sounds like alot of fun, the only thing I'm confused about is that you said in one part you only had him by 1 car........your car is stage IV, shouldn't you have smoked him hard? I used to pound modded gti's back when I had my 02 with just a stage 2 txs set-up....any idea what his mods were?

    I really don't know what his mods were. The problem was that my clutch has been slipping on hard power and I haven't been able to launch well at all. I got a halfway decent launch, but not very good by wrx standards I guess. Also, it was only up to 50mph... that's a pretty short race.

    Where in MD are you, I'm sure your aquanted with EIP. I live right near them. Are those actual times you got? Seems like an awful big spread for those boost incriments. Not saying yoru lying just curious if you actually got those times or if their estimated. If so, what were your trap speeds?

    It wasn't really wet everywhere... snow had melted so it was just a few patches. I definitely wasn't 100% because of the varying conditions.

    J-Style, your car is an animal! Do you run 25psi daily? Are those all on pump gas? Those are very impressive numbers!

    It depends on just how modded the GTI was. If it was stage iii then I can see the outcome being like reported.

    Good kill!

    so wehre are you located? Interesting you dont like eip, my friend hosts their site in trade of some fab work on his turboII. The owners are pretty trustworthy and they actually care about the quality of their work. Thats pretty rare these days. DId you have a bad experience with them? Also it seems to me they've proved their tuning capabilities, didn't they have the fastest gti at one point?
