    It is very hard to grasp the concept of a WRX Cobb 2 hanging with a Z06, but I wasn't there and like you said, everything can happen......

    Sweet revenge for you lol

    BTW, I have driven a Z06.....that is why I am so skeptical about the "hanging with" story....+ my WRX is stage 2, so I know what eithe rone is capable....

    Well, it was only 50-80 so it really wasn't much of a race. I was just surprised that I stayed with him at any speed for any amount of time.

I wish we could have went from a dig. Anyway, I know nobody believes me, but there it is.
    Sorry to hijack.
    What do Stage 2+ trap at, 105mph or so? Just curious.

    Between 99-103mph. Most people trap around 100mph.

    Gotta love people who think there car is unbeatable, and then they get there A$$ handed to them. I just love the excuses.
    - My tires are wet!
    - I can't get any traction.
    - My tires aren't warmed up

    From say 10mph - 80mph , you can easily take out a Z06 with traction issues. I don't understand why others don't see this.
    I see! I have just begun to harness my traction issues. Launch is critical, whether it be 0 mph or 30 roll. Matching gear ratio to rpm to mph is a delicate balance. You must know your vehicle. Driver is 50% IMO.
