mmm, the classic (kinda) battle. Honda vs. Scooby.
Adam ur gunna have to refresh my memory on this. Im posting for you 1) cuz i know you wouldn't and 2) i wanna see what everyone here says about it.
Don't know if we started at white castle or the tacobell. And i don't remember if the camaros and mustangs were there. But i do remember that i saw an s2000 beat a WRX 3 times. The S2000i was a friend of ours friend. So we know he wasn't lying when he said all he had was a new exhaust.
1st race: wrx launches at 6000, smokes clutch, loses
2nd race: wrx launches at 3500, bogs the start, loses
3rd race: wrx launches 4000, looses
I believe that's how it went.
How could this be? i know the s2000 is light. but the torque to weight ratio isn't that good and the rex should be able to destroy it off the line, which it didn't. Any thoughts on this? perhaps it's the launch technique? i think he (the wrx) his pulling his foot off the clutch too slowly. He releases the petal some but it doesn't snap forward like I would've thought it would. I have a rwd 6-speed and it snaps forward more so than his. suggestions?
