    WRX vs. WRX+1/2 ton

    I finally got to race another WRX!!! We raced on the interstate from about a 40 mph roll and i stayed even with him until 120 when he braked casue he caught up to traffic in his lane.

    I was surprised i stayed even cause i had 4 people in my car, my skinny ass 180 lbs, 2 who are about 200 lbs and one who is pushing 250 and all of our back packs which are pushing 50 lbs a peice. So probably almost an extra 1000 lbs. I only have an uppipe/downpipe and grounding kit. It surprised me with only those mods I could overcome that weight difference. The other guy was by himself and he looked stock.

    The other dude was like wtf, cause I look stock and he couldn't pull from me with all my extra weight.

    My guess he had a auto tranny, I don't think the 800lbs of extra weight would be offset by youtr mods.

    We started on an on ramp to the interstate with him about 3 cars ahead of me and we stayed about the same until he braked at 120. At the stop light right before the on ramp i reved him and he didn't rev back, but he launched and spun his front tires.

    I don't think its possible to keep that constant of a distance the whole way from 40 to 120.
