Hey all, just got past 1k on the STi last weekend and I have been itching to get her up against something. Tonight was the night. I was walking to my car after working late and I saw the Z sitting there next to my car. The guy gets out and was asking me about the STi. He works in my building but I have never talked with him before. We chat for like 10 minutes then he asked me to run up on the highway. Well I was like sure but you will win. He has a full exhaust and an intake. But then he said "well she has 115k on her and getting kind of weak after all the beatings put it through."
So we pull out and up the ramp for the highway. I was in front. There is a 90~ turn on the ramp so I lay into it. I look back and he took the turn too hard! He was off the road in the grass! So I pull over on the side of the road and wait. He gets it back on the ramp and pulls up behind. I get out and ask if he is ok. He said "yea, damn that thing sticks to the road, I wasn't watching my speed, just your car and lost it." lol Anyway on to the race...
**Note this was at 9:30 at night with no trafic around.**
I let him honk to 3 from a 50mph roll, I get the jump for some reason and put 2 cars on him by 100. I'm into 5th and keep it pinned to the floor and shut down at 120. I look back right before i shut down and had about 4 cars on him.
I was shocked! I'm not an F-Body expert but I though he would pull on me over 100mph with his mods. Maybe his engine is just beat but it sounded damn good.
I'm going to talk to him more tomorrow and see what he thinks of the ol' STi.
So thats STi 1, Domestics 0
