so, going down lake shore drive, i see this sti in front of me, maybe 20-30 cars in front, and i start flooring it. I was at least two gears too high, but i didn't car, i just wanted to catch up to him but not to frighten the guy. Anyhow, i guess he sees my car from that far back and he floors it. I catch up to him and the passenger signals me to come next to them. I get next to them and the passenger asks if we wanted to race. I say sure why not, i downshift and so does he, and he takes off before i was ready. i said wtf but took follow and he slowed down again. We did this again, at about 30mph and i was in second. We didn't really do a count down, he would just jump whenever he wanted, as he did this time and got an instant two cars on me and i tried to catch but i couldn't, slowed down when he was three cars in front but he wasn't really pulling that much there after. I get next to him and we go again, this time i got the jump on him and he floored it, but couldn't catch up to me, maybe he messed up on a shift or something. We only ran from 30-70mph on that one. We did it again, and this time he got the hit and got about 2 cars on me again. Damn, the car really flew. We got off and got up to two red lights. Both red lights, he gets a better reaction time and i follow, though everytime i dont let him get more than 1 car on me on the launch. To about 60 he was about two cars in front. I guess maybe i would have held him back a bit better if i launched at 5k and actually had a better damn reaction time. Anyhow, they asked me what i had and i told them chip and intake. I asked him what he had, and the passenger turns to the driver and asks him 'what should i say.' The passenger turns around and tells me, 'were completely stock.'
Ok, i have raced stock evo's and stock 540's and slightly modded srt-4s, and non of them have ever jumped that fast from a roll on me. For some reason, i can not believe that he was stock, not even the slightly modded evo i raced didn't lurch forward like that. (ps. i beat the evo by like 2 cars to 155mph but thats a whole different story).
My car traps around 102-103mph, so i cannot see the sti launching that much on me, if those trap around 101-105mph stock.
wtf!? i am almost positive he was lying to me, they seemed like they didn't want to tell me the truth about what he had. why do people do that?
