    About a year ago, I was test driving a 2003 Nissan SE-R Spec V (this was when my financial situation wasn't quite was it is currently ). My dad knows the salesman fairly well, so I just take the car out for a spin. I end up pulling up to this guy I worked with at Circuit City in his '02 WRX.

    He revs a bit. I laugh and rev back, knowing there's no way in hell I would stand a chance. But I figure, ah what the hell....I'm on a test drive by myself on a nice little back road.

    Light turns green. I actually am able to launch that torque steer monster fairly well. Of course, he still jumps out ahead easily. But he blows the 1-2 shift and I pull ahead somewhat. He quickly catches back up but we have to slow down because of traffic ahead. He rolls down his window and he's laughin'. I took the car back to the lot soon after, but it was fun little run.

    He's since learned to actually drive that thing 'cause he's running consistent 13.4 ET's now (up-pipe/TBE/pulley/mbc @ 16psi). And, needless to say, I didn't end up getting the Spec V. Waited out 'til I could afford what I really wanted

    I definatly respect the old guys in the Z crowd. The ones who bought 280z's, 300zx, and now 350z. I like when they buy it because its a Z.. The kids who go out and buy them because "ohhh shiat diz shats fazt yo!!!" I like to murder them even if it's from a roll (I never race from a roll)
    One time some guy was tailing me HARDCORE on the GSP in a 350 (and I'm going 80) and went to pass me, I pulled to 100mph and he grinded a gear so hard that I saw him pull over onto the shoulder soon after. Poor guy

    haha, greats story... the SE-r actually has a fair amount of mid-band pull/torque.... sucks that there isnt much else though..

    We should start a got killed by list...mine goes something like:

    E55 - My friend wouldn't let me NOT race him so I had to..
    03 Cobra - Basic bolt ons..had him all the way to 100 MPH..
    EVO 8 - Had basic bolt ons...wouldn't tell me which though..
    TA - LS1 with a few bolt ons got my by a fender..now that I'm running the correct map on my car he's waiting to get a converter and radials to race

    damn, you hung with an 03 cobra that had basic bolt on's upto 100??

    i might have to pull a flag unless you are running a pretty heavy setup with upgraded turbo.
    that car is easy high 12's STOCK. with basic bolt on's (pulley, intake, exhaust) you are looking at mid 11's.... no prob!!

    not to mention they cut incredible 60 ft's

    I know exactly what the E55 has...which is why I posted "We should start a got killed by list...mine goes something like:" I wrote got killed by...as in...I got killed by...as in I lost...lol are people reading my full post?

    In my defense to the Cobra...he couldn't hook for ****...people can pull flags all they want but anyone who races on the street knows anything can happen...I have a Stage 3 WRX and I know how to launch it pretty well...I know what they *can* run with certain parts but this one didn't...the word on the street is he ran a few 13.6's at the track...its not my fault he can't drive and I know if I raced a well driven one I would have lost *before* 100 mph and not after...but again this is a GOT KILLED BY list...I thought I was clear on that...I hate to start a flame war but why can't people post without other people trying to pick apart everything they say? Instead of people reading that I GOT KILLED BY they jumped straight to E55 is teh fastAr oh no, I mean I posted the TA *BEAT ME* but no one read that, if I was making a list wouldn't everything on the list be the same?...and Cobra's coulda shoulda woulda...well it didn't...I don't know why I have to justify his lack of driving skills or his lack of supporting mods...this is a wrx vs the world forum...not a bracket racing forum.

    EDIT: I was unclear about the Cobra's mods..he had the silencer removed at the time...I doubt he had the exhaust he has on now at the time of the race but I honestly don't remember.

    On the internet it comes out sounding like a bigger deal then it is...I just don't want people thinking I'm some ignorant tool with a WRX that thinks he is faster then anything on the streets...it just gets me in defense mode when people start listing specs/times/mods etc. For the record my friend put BFG g-force drag radials on and went 11.8 completely stock, but with his HRE rims on its a whole other ball game. As for the Cobra I have videos of him now with bolt ons running the E55 and beating him up once or twice, but at the time he was relatively stock and on stock street tires, both cars walked me pretty hard upstairs, awd is my only shot at winning on the streets against 400+ hp cars.

    i am fully aware that you stated it was a "got killed by" post. but you also stated you beat the cobra upto 100mph... if he sucks at driving, then +1 for you... but realistically you would have been walked HARD!
    no need to get all defensive... just explain your side..which you have

    Yup I know...and its not even like I could duplicate the race again...he has since bought drag radials, pulley, exhaust and beat up my friend's drag radial E55...I'll get around to posting videos sooner or later but here are some pics to hold you guys over.
