    me (GTP) vs. awdf00 (WRX) part TWO

    You may have remembered a post where I raced Will (awdf00) on damp pavement from a 20 roll, needless to say, it didn't go too well ...

    OK, so I'm cruising through town at 1am to see if anyone wants to race. I'm waiting in a turn-on onto the street when I see an eclipse gst and a black WRX with really familiar looking blue lights whizzing on by. Naturally, I give chase. I pull up next to the WRX and whaddya know, it's Will! As the eclipse turns off I ask Will if he wants to do another friendly run, which he agrees to. I call him while we're looking for a spot...

    me: do you want to go from a stop or roll?
    will: I dunno, can you get traction from a stop?
    me: .....oh heck no!
    will: ok, we'll go from about 30 to make it fair
    me: haha, ok

    We finally find an empty stretch of road and go on 3 honks from 30. I get the nice 3-1 downshift and am right in my strong spot. We're even for a moment, but Will starts to pull ahead. He has about 1-1 1/2 car lead by 80, when we both stop. Knowing another race will have the same result, I call it quits.

    He said he'll race me again after I get headers on in a few weeks. The headers I got give a 20whp/20wtq on a stock engine, so I'm expecting even bigger gains on mine. If I can safely run it, I may also put on a smaller s/c pulley.

    Good race Will, next time you see me, I'll be faster!

    BTW, who won that race b/w you and the Eclipse? Oh, and who was that pretty girl with you?

    Hey man, good race. I was having an issue with knock with my aftermarket air intake, so I was keeping my boost down to around 10-14 psi instead of my usual 18 lbs of boost.
    The eclipse jumped before I did but I eventually passed it in fourth gear with the same amount of boost (10-14). And that was my girlfriend in the passenger seat.
