So it's snowing/raining here in South Eastern PA. Same with NJ. I'm heading over to AutoSpeed to restock and I decide to meet up with a n00b named Dave to see what's up. He thinks his WRX is fast. SOoooooooo. We drive over to Autospeed and I order my parts. On the way back to the bridge to show Dave the way home, we catch a light. Now he has to put up or shut up.
Dave's mods: Turboback, Samco IC hoses, Boost controller, lightened flywheel, HKS SSQV BOV.
PPM Stage X: Uppipe, Samco IC hoses, MBC, lightened flywheel and crank pulley, me driving (note: stock turbo, stock turboback)
The light goes green and we both NAIL the launch, but not surprising, I'm a half car length out by the end of first. I shift and then hear him shift. The race is over. I pull about 9 car lengths by 90mph and I think Dave gave up after my 1-2 shift.
On the way BACK to AutoSpeed is when the real fun began. I spot a BMW330Ci and a BMW M3 (E36). Now, as we all know, I have never lost a race to a BMW. Soooooo. I pull up next to him and make pace. We hit it at 50mph, he stays with me until I shift into third, and then I pull away easily while listening to his I-6 sing under the hood. He attempts several fly bys and I deny them all. Even taking my car over 110mph to make sure he gets the point.
Lastly, I took a Mustang Cobra from 40-90mph, but he was lacking traction for sure. Nothing sounds like the DOHC Mustang 4.6L, simply awesome sound.
Then, Frank of Autospeed and I played pool at Slates (attached to Hooters on Rt. 38) and went 2-2. A fun night.
Also, please note that I don't like to street race, unless someone thinks their car can't be beaten or the opponent is worth racing: M3 and Cobra can't be passed up.
