    05 STi vs 02 WS6

    Intro to race
    So I got off work went to king soopers and parked behind this silver STi and thought little of it. I go in come out and see the owner (a younger douche like myself. lol jk) getting into it so I pace faster to my car get out and follow him to; Mexico.

    The race
    He's a little ahead stopped at the light alone and I'm thinkin hell yea dig race! well I get closer and start slowing down and the light turns green on the dig well i gun it just to show him my interest. Well I have a catch and I hear him comin hard I let him get to about the middle of my car before I gun it where he slows down to honk, I catch on and let off to roll but then he guns it again so at this point hes next to me but in full momentum when I stomp on the pedal. (i expect to start pullin) but realize we are side by side 1 gear, 2 gear, 3 gear almost to 4th when we get to a huge ass hill that you cant see down so we both let off.

    mods
    Not exactly a kill I was planning for but I talked to him and he claimed full exhaust tune and bigger injectors. (I think he had a bigger turbo than stock cuz why would you need bigger injectors) He also said he was at 10psi.
    I still call bs but whatever but I got full exhaust and no tune so it's whatever.

    Sorry it's hard to read but it's hard to explain.

    LOL, this reminds me of everytime i race my friends G37 or any other car. Everytime i race from 1-3 gears i can only manage to keep up and if that. If i start a race in 3rd and move up from there basically for me about 50-60mph the race is completely opposite, its a easy pull.

    get a tune, let us know how it feels, then. too bad you couldnt find him after you tune it, and run him again.

    I've always liked the sedan better. The new one looks great, in my opinion.

    Also, some drivers are pounding out mid-low 13s in the 2010 base model WRX, that's equal to the STI of a couple years back.

    So if both the T/A and the STi where stock would it be T/A for the win? Sorry If I'm stealing your thread BlackBird

    my opinion based on racing a few is that they are a dead heat. i just raced one a week ago. I would say that these f bodies, the ls2 gto, stiwrx, and lightning all start out on the same page. where you go from there is the fun part.

    If you got an M6 and you can drive an M6, Don't worry much but any mistake will probably cost you. These things aren't a joke but they arent the biggest threat.
