While getting some milk last night at the local 7-11 a young kid in a nice looking GSR-R asked me if my WRX was fast. I replied to the kid with depends on what you consider to be fast. He then stated that 11’s was the time to beat. I said then I must be slow. He then stated that he had a High performance clutch, flywheel, and full exhaust. I then got in my car and began to drive away. Two minutes later at the light he pulls up. The kid began to rev his engine like he was trying to stage a top fuel funny car. I put my slurpee down and looked around for other vehicles and the cops. The light turned green I launched at 4k and put 3 cars on the kid. By the time I let off at the top of 3rd I had 6 cars on the kid. Then I noticed that he was still charging and did a flyby. At the light he rolled down his window and said that I had him during the low end, but when his V-tech kicked in it was all over. I then asked him if he saw my break lights when he about 6 cars behind me. Why is everyone running 11’s? And yet get smoked by mid 13 sec cars all the time. Experience tells me that if you have a solid 13 sec streetcar, you will win 90% of the time.
