    I find this thread amusing because I've run my Stage 1 WRX against my wife in her Ford Escape V-6 out of a light several times and she totally gets the jump on me to almost 50 mph unless I launch at over 3500 RPM. She just had to step on it.

    I too have a Corvette and had someone in an STi tailgating me with something to prove, so at the next light, I rolled out slowly to about 5 mph then hammered it. By the time I hit 40 and shut down, he was just starting to really get moving. Of course the jump wasn't fair, but I also forced him into a low boost situation which multiplied the humiliation.

    Fact is, it's difficult to catch a large-displacement motor wrong-footed. It's easy to humilate small-displacement motors (turbo or not) even if they make huge power up top.

    Of course, at the track, the battle is more even with two good drivers that can keep things in the power-band.

    Good fun in any case.

    3,000,000RPM is pretty fast for the stock valvetrain to handle.
