I was out cruising and taking advantage of the nice cool evening while of course always looking for more wins and what suddenly appears before me but a white STi, very dark tint, perhaps 15%, and full exhaust. I haven't had the chance to race one yet so I figured this would be a great opportunity. Pulled almost alongside of him about one length behind and he guns it from about 60-65mph, I of course do the same but he gets the initial jump since my turbos have not spooled up, but once they're fully spinning I whoosh by him and pick up 4 quick lengths to 120mph before the traffic light halts our progress and signals the starting point for the pending full race.
I'm thinking the STi will put up a good fight from a stop and should make for decent entertainment. I ready my RPMs waiting for the light to turn green and he does the same, bam the light flashes green and surprisingly I get a half car jump at the start, that's right me..now I know this is going to get ugly. The gain increases to about 2.5 lengths by 60mph, then 6 by 100mph and the top end of the Supra is killer above 100mph so another quick 6 lengths are put one from only 100mph-120mph where I have to shut it down due to an upcoming traffic light.
I was assuming the guy would chat at the traffic light but he stood firmly behind the nearly black painted windows so I couldn't tell you what other mods he had if any besides the exhaust. Nevertheless, for some reason he starts revving again assumedly asking for another race. I'm not quite sure why but I was glad to oblige assuming that he may have had a bad launch the first time...hey it happens to all of us. Well not to bore you with details but the second race is a carbon copy of the first one, in other words I put about 12 lengths on him from a stop to 120mph. Oh well. If you're on the board feel free to contribute.
