Haven't posted in here in a while, but I figured, why not?
I was just out at a meet (check Everyday Impreza Talk for pics) and encountered an S40 sedan on the way back. We were playing around for a while and ended up next to each other at a light. I didn't know we were racing, so he got a launch on me, but I quickly punched it. I pulled to about half a car in front of him and we stayed pretty even through 2nd and half of 3rd gear before shutting down. Of course, we needed a rematch!
A few miles up, we come to another light. He revs, I rev back, check for po-po and any babies in the road and wait for the light to turn. Green light comes and I get a wicked launch, probably one of my best, tires spinning and everything, and immediately pull almost a full car on him. I get maybe another half a length on him before we shut down around 60mph.
We come to a third light and finally get a chance to chat. He tells me he has a chip (a quick web search says that the chip puts him around 200 hp) and 2.5" exhaust and compliments me on the type-h BOV. We go our seperate ways at the next intersection. Good guy, good pull, WRX 1 - Volvo 0.
