Went out to the meet in Boca tonight.
As soon as I pull in I have a twin turbo supra challenge me for fun. He had exhaust and a larger intercooler etc, very lightly modded making 320whp. We both had 2 passengers. So we went from a 2nd gear roll and he pulled me no problem. Put two cars on my by the end of 3rd when I quit.
Then I ran a new GTI 1.8t, with every bolt on and stock turbo. Both had 2 passengers. Went from a 2nd gear roll and ended up with him a little behind my rear bumper at 120mph.
Next was a friend in his USDM STI (stock). We went from a stop, 1st, and 2nd gear roll. Each of us had 2 passengers. First race was from a 1st gear roll at around 4.5k, he gave the honk and got the jump, whoever gives the honk always gets the jump . All the way up till 120 we were dead even with nobody pulling. Then we went from 2nd with the same results.
Next we went from a stop and he launched right before me and got a little bit of a jump. We didn't go from a light so it was by honk. Same results as before. After that we called it quits.
Heres what confused me. With the stock STI, he pulled a little on a modded STI. Our other friend was there with his white STI, and when I raced him I would edge him out a little in each gear. He has a blitz nurspec catback with a blitz sus. Im starting to think his car isn't running right, or that the silver STI is a factory freak.
I've had a few run ins with STI's and all of them were modded. Stayed dead even with an STI with exhaust and headers, and pulled slightly on the white one I was talking about. The silver STI also pulled slightly on a E46 M3 from a highway roll, and the M3 is a friend of mine who traps 106 consistently.
What do you think, is he a factory freak?
