Was out cruising with my buddy and the video camera tonight. Came across a modded STi on the highway. The car looked to have at least exhaust mods and it was LOUD.
I tried to bait him into a 70mph roll, but he kept slowing down...so I ended up next to him at about 57-58mph which is a HORRIBLE place for me to start racing from a roll as second gear ends @ around 62mph. Unfortunately he baited me to his PERFECT starting point.
I had to start in the complete bottom of third...so he beeped and left a bit before the third beep and he pulled about 1.5-2 cars on me through third and into fourth due to me being out of the powerband. About midway through 4th I stopped his pull and he just hung there. Neither of us pulled anymore through the rest of fourth and well into 5th. It was a good close death...and I would have liked to run again from a different speed since our gearing is so much different....oh well, maybe I'll run into him again.
It's all on video but I don't have a place to host vids and I haven't ripped it off my cam yet either..so the vid will have to wait a little while.
With a start around 70mph we probably would have been near dead even since the jump he got at the bottom of my third gear gave him the 1.5-2 car lead and I managed to stop his pull after that.
Vid coming soon!
