Today on my way to work I lined up against an 03 Cobra. I knew it wouldn't be fair going from a dig so I decided to wait and let him make the move leaving the line.
So as we leave the line in frirst gear 10mph or so he nails it
(oh shxt- thats a mistake) and jumped about a 1/2 car in front of me. All I could hear was his engine screaming and I reacted.
I ran first gear to redline and he was still about 1/2 car in front of me. I slammed 2nd gear and slowly start to reel him in? I slam third gear and I'm now about a 1/2 car in front of him and slowly walking away from him. I get about 1 car in front of him and he lets off and gives up.

First I was really happy and then I started to think to myself this was way too easy. Then I came to the conclusion, he must have been braking his tires loose. It was 7:30am and the roads were dry but not totally dry. You know the way roads can be early in the morning.

So I waited for him at the next light and asked him if he had traction issues. He said yes. I told him I thought so. He said his Cobra was stock. He seemed like a really cool guy.

This race shows why I bought an STi. I'm ready to race anywhere at anytime. Not just under perfect conditions. So give this race to the STi.:)

Nice kill, the STi is so money no matter condition you are playing around in. It is just so nice to always hear excuses from all sorts of cars, no matter what the situation may be.

Oh yeah that is a damn nice 1/4 mi. time you got there, with those mods. I have just a tbe but I am sure i won't get too that close.

Keep up the good work

Funny should should mention killing a Mustang! I had one myself last night - a 1999ish Mustang GT with flow-masters. The guy was really cool before and afterward and couldn't believe the launch of the STi. :)

I'm 0-2 against cobras, granted the conditions weren't ideal for me. First loss was a 60 highway roll. hahaha. You know the rest :tongue: Second one was a little better. It was an 03 cobra which sounded like he had some sort of exhaust mods and who know what else... I lined up with him at a red and took off like a bat out of hell. Imediately I got a few car lengths. He reeled me in around 95 and slowly started to walk away.
