so everyone in my town just HATES wrx's. its pretty much a group of tegs (gsr's and a couple of type r's) and 1.8t's.
they were talking MAJOR sh1t about how their cars run 12's and 13's.
so they all challenged me to a race. Each one of them lined up, and each one of them lost. Went from a dig with the 1.8t, and two gsr's (intake headers exhaust and other unmentioned mods) got 4 cars off the launch and they never pulled back. the two gsr's tho were spinning tires from the launch and missed the shift a few times. One gsr with just an exhaust raced from 3 honks, and the wrx took him pretty easily by a few cars from 20 - 90. the other gsr with major mods who was spinning like crazy from a dig went from a 15mhp roll. wrx was out of boost and he was right in his vtec range so he jumped 2 cars. wrx was pulling him back by 3rd but he shut down. if we had raced from any other speed it wouldn't have been the same result.
the reason for all of this owneage was a new accessport... its been doing its job and boost has been at 14.7 psi in 3rd, 14.2 in second and 13.2 in first. Car feels all around great and was even able to beat a type r from a roll hands down. now just to wait for the exhaust components again...
