    Raced my first STi

    Leaving my college campus today, I saw a black STi about 4 cars ahead of me. I knew it was stock because I know the kid. So anyway, I catch up to him and ask him if he wants to go. He said sure but there was too many cars in front of us to get a good run, so I told him to follow me to the service road.

    We get to the service road and catch a light. I didn't want to do it from a launch, so I said a 20mph 1st gear roll. I beeped at 20mph, and we took off. I pulled instantly, and he never caught up. I beat him by like a 1/2 car if not less.
    He said that wasn't his race car, that he has a mustang at home. He's selling his STi for a Saleen (Muscle kind of guy I guess =/)

    But anyway, I'm glad to say a stock STi can't keep up with my 02.

    GT SPEC II up pipe
    Helix downpipe (catless)
    HKS Carbon-Ti catback
    K&N Typhoon intake

    Nice kill!!!!!

    I want a clean stock STi race like that.

    I gotta watch my manifold pressure when I hit the NAWZ or else my diamond-plated floorboards will fall out and i'll roast my piston rings.

    My car is up there in miles, and I'm in the field of buying a new clutch soon and I don't feel like killing it just yet.

    Some of these people are acting like I'm a SRT and I just beat a STi, geeze.

    Really? I thought it would be about the same (with his mods)....I thought an STI would have an advantage from a roll......oh well......

    WTF are you talking about dude? No one is doubting you that you beat the STi. IMO, your car is trapping close to what the STi traps.

    One other thing we all know is that the STi gets off the line better than the WRX with equal drivers in both.

    Stop getting all defensive and lighten up.. geez.

    Edit: The reason why I know this is I ran Greg (scooby24) who had a stage 2 and a better driver than me. We ran down KCIR and I got 1.78 to his 1.89 on 60ft. And he stayed side by side with me since I misshift my 3rd gear.

    my thoughts exactly, having owned a wrx previously with utec, tbe, uppipe, intake, sti i/c, I still believe my sti is faster....especially from a roll vs my old set up. Maybe he needs to run a better driver just to see if it was a fluke or not.

    I dunno dude. I'm not doubting you won the race, but I still think the STi is a faster car all else being equal... Unless you have a ton of weight reduction done..... Maybe he started in 2nd since you got the jump and its obvious that the STi has more "down low" tourque.

    So I would say, a stock STi with that driver can keep up with you and your 02. Other wise, STi>your WRX.
