    98 Impreza RS vs WRX

    Just thought i'd post this, it was my first race in this car. I came across a silver debadged WRX omw home from work around 12am, he followed me for a bit and I didn't realize it until he passed me a little later. I followed him then once we got onto a straight road, I floored it to start catching up. At the same time he got on it, I eventually caught up and passed him by a few cars then shut it down, I hadn't checked the speed but it felt around 80ish. We then get down to speed, around 35mph, line up, I didn't downshift so I was near the bottom of 3rd gear out of boost, honked 3 times then went, we went up to about the same speed as before, he pulled about 2 cars and I started to pull at the end, then we shut off. Afterwards we pulled into a parking lot, talked for a bit, he had a VF30 setup with supporting mods and 1 passenger with him. He was pretty cool, actually posts on nasioc..doesn't like clubwrx though I think I did pretty well, it was a bit unorganized, I would've liked to take him on from a full on stop, but that in itself was pretty fun..damn what a rush. I'm pretty honored to have taken on a fellow subbie owner like that for the first run, didn't really see that coming. Mods are in the sig, typical stg 2 stuff w RA gears.

    Nice race... I was wondering how you kept up but then I read your mods. I'm sure you'll be surprising a lot of cars on the road w/ u'r swap.

    Yea he said I kept up pretty well, It was funny to see the look on his face when I told him my setup. I figured he had something over stock turbo, but either way I was either gaining slowly, holding even or him pulling away slowly. I do want to get an 18g on at some point, it'll really haul then, but for now the stock turbo is doing pretty good combined with the gearing and lighter car.
