I was AIMing with my friend tonight who frequents the ClubSi boards (goes by Si 2 Si there) and was telling him about my latest mods. I suggest we go for a drive sometime and he tells me that his brother's in town with his old car, a '99 Civic Si with a Jackson Racing Supercharger. He sold it to his brother but since he's back, he's like "Dude let's go right now!" "Hell yeah!" I say and I grab my keys and take off to meet them.
I pull up and the car is immaculate. It's a total sleeper...just black, lowered down with exhaust. Can't tell what's under the hood at all. They just waxed it today and boy did it look pretty at night! My friend had to go pick up a DVD from our other friend's house, so we decided to pick him up, then go for a spin.
We get to our friend's house and figure out where we want to go. Since the friend we just picked up and my friend's brother have never really been in a WRX, we decide they should ride with me, while Si 2 Si's in his old car all by himself. We take off for the highway, with us in front. Pulling on the highway, we're going about 35-40, with my friend still behind me. Then, I PUNCH IT.
Seeing as though this is my first real test with the new unichip tuning, I was anxious to see how it performed, especially against a much lighter, supercharged Si. My foot's on the floor and I look at my rearview mirror...he's right on my ass, drafting me perfectly. Shift into 3rd, he's still on my ass, but we're ever so slowly pulling away. Shift into 4th without letting it redline...by this time we're already at about 105-110. We hit about 115 with my car still pulling hard and he shuts down. We shut down too, turn around, and head back to my friend's house.
We get out and my friend's shaking his head. "Oh man did I miss this car...but god I need me a better car!" He was surprised that he kept up so well but then he said "Dude it was scary though, because everytime you shifted, your exhaust shot out a little fireball!" I look at him in disbelief but he swears on it. Ahhh, the joys of being catless
Overall it was a fun night...we all had a blast and I was happy to actually run against someone who KNEW how to drive fast. God, I love this car!
