One of my coworker has the Lan Evo and been wanting to race me. Today was his last day of work, so I decided to give me going away race. To be exact it was even a race. Since we did not want to take it on to the streets, we just ran through 1st gear in our parking lot. It was all for good fun, since I will not be able to see him often. I wanted to see how fast Evos are off the line. His Evo is stock and my WRX has Helix Up pipe, HKS downpipe/Invidia exhaust system and Gramlights 57C/Kumho Ecsta 712s. So we line up, I bring my rev up to 4K. I slipped the clutch and darted off the line and immediately took about car and a half lead going into 2nd gear, where I had to brake, because I ran out of room. What I want to ask is, if the race had been longer, would I able to take him through at least end of 3rd or even 4th gear? I know eventually, he'll reel me in. BTW, I am the better driver.
