    cobb 2.5 vs STI

    well, was on my way to the grocery store with my wife and while slowing down to a stoplight, this blue STI comes flying by me and comes to a stop as well. i'm behind one car and he's in the next lane with nobody in front of him. and he just starts reving and reving. i look over to give him a peace sign and a nod but he doesn't look over at all. so i'm like what the heck, and my wife usually sees other subaru owners give us the peace sign/nod (only in Virginia, and this incident just happened in Tennessee, where i just recently located to) and she's like "what the heck" as well. so i guess my first impression of the subaru community here is that they aren't too friendly. i'm hoping it's just this guy. anyways, i really did not want to race, and i really really wanted to smoke this sti, but the wife did not want me too. especially since we were in a high policed area. so the light turns green and i obviously expected him to launch the line and show off ( which he did ). i switch lanes and follow him hoping to catch him at the line at the next stoplight. i just wanted a piece! well, he ends up at the next stoplight while i unluckily end up behind another car. light turns green and he launches again and starts flying and i'm just like "who the hell is he trying to race, himself?!" so i pass the car in front of me and follow him again. the next stop light is little bit farther off so i figured why not take him now.
    i see him start slowing down, so i know he's game. i switch lanes again so i can line up with him. i downshift to 2nd and roll up next to him going around 40-45mph. here we go.
    he gets the jump on me, because i wasn't ready, no honks or anything - he just goes.
    so i react of course, and my wife the whole time is "Nooooooooo!" i start pulling on him slowly until i'm at his rear door, and then in 3rd gear, i pull away about a car ahead when we had to shut down due to traffic. we ended up in another situation where i lined up next to him again, and i was waiting for him to go, but he didn't and took a left turn somewhere.
    i think he was stock, not really sure. when i was behind him, i took a peek at his exhaust and i could see stock exhaust piping. he might've had a stealth back but who knows.
    my mods are cobb 2.5 vf30 sti pinks borla headers helix downpipe mrt catback.
    hopefully, i can catch him again with wide open road. and without groceries in the back seat!

    I think he meant trap speed,
