Traded in my Evo today for a black 2002 Roush 3 Mustang, I just couldnt pass up the offer. So of course I took it out for some fun tonight. Met up with some friends I have been hanging with for awhile who race out here and they were shocked and asked where the Evo was. Told them and everyone wanted to drive the Stang since we all had imports, I said maybe later and we all went to the "summit" when night came. I got in a few runs down the strip with my timer going and I ran a 4.1 0-60 and a 12.3 1/4 mile time on my best run
I wanted to race my friend with the STi first, he has some minor mods like exhaust etc..He got a good launch and we were side by side till I hit 2nd gear. Chirp the tires and the 375 lb ft of torque pull my car and push me back and I pull close to a fulll length. Hit 3rd and I really pull, about a length and a half on him when I hit 80. Into 4th and its pretty much done, hit the 1/4 mile mark and finish about 2 lengths up.
Raced a few more friends and won, beat a 04 350Z with a single turbo, supped up Mitsu Eclipse and my friends RSX-ya, that was really ugly, I asked him afterwards if he stopped because I had like 6 lengths on him by 70 mph
Funny story on the way home too. To the untrained eye, the Roush just looks like a Mustang with a body kit and unless you see the Roush 3 on the back, you may not even know. Guy next to me in a new tricked out Toyota Celica revs at me. Why do these Celica owners thing they have some kind of bad ass racecar? I actually let him get a jump on me and take a good length on me, I caught him and pulled a length on him in about 2 seconds and let off so he was beside me, light up ahead turns red. When it goes green, I let him have it and when I let up at about 60, I probably could have taken my foot completley off the gas and he still would have needed about 5-6 seconds to catch up with me, it was pretty damn funny.
