Going to work this morning I see this guy in a Type S. I see him all the time but I never get a chance to race him. One day we got side by side at a light and he floored it and sped off. I couldn't race him because my mom was in the car. Figures.
This time I was all by my self. Well we were playing cat and mouse for a few blocks just testing the waters. It was obvious we both wanted to race. Then we caught a red light. So when the light turned green we both left the line a little slow and bam! He floors it. I do the same from the middle of 1st gear. I quickly get along side of him and start pulling away in 2nd gear. I hear his car bark the tires in 2nd gear (not bad). I pull hard on him in 2nd gear and by the time I shift into 3rd I've got several car lengths. Then I continue to pull hard in 3rd gear and get about 5-7+ cars on him by the time I let off at 80mph or so.
It was very fun and satisfying to finally race him and show him what a WRX can do.
I'm sure he's at work this morning wondering how he got beat so bad by a WRX.
