    I'm not going to lie...

    I got my ass handed to me this time...

    Well I was leaving the local hang out where all the big boys meet up. I run into a group of Camaros, TAs, and Mustangs. I pull up next to a TA not sure if it was a WS6 or not and we got a run in. Started at I want to say some where around 65-70. I was in 4th, which generally is a good spot for that gear. I look over and see 3 gauges on the guys pillar, right then I think fuck I've lost, I'm sure hes spraying or something. Well, I go for it anyway, I love to lose cause its a better race, or when it is neck and neck I love those. Anyway, we both punch it. By the time I reach 5th hes got a car or so on me, then mid way through 5th he's got about another half car to car, but stopped pulling. Great race over all. I really like to see what a fast car is like. I definentyl can't wait until wednesday, when I get tuned now. Anyway, anyone know what he could have possibly had done. I didn't hear a blower so I just assumed a nice shot of n2o.

    Dont feel bad. I lost to a gto once and i have 340whp with a blown clutch. He probaly had bolt ons. That almost sounds exactly how i lost except we went from 80 to 105.

    Do you have any idea what the gearing is in the m6? At 65 2nd is still usable. THere is a lot of torque to be had. 2nd gear! At 90 4th is a head snap. Maybe you need to take a ride in a ws6 one time and you will get an idea of what the gearing is. Not trying to be an ass, just Captain Obvious.

    That might be your car but it's not mine. I'm not trying to be an ass but there are other cars on the road other than yours. I really don't care what gear he was in, I was stating what gear I was in. I need to be around 3500rpms so I get all the boost and no lag.

    are you realizing that he's talking about his car which is a STI and not an f-body? Not trying to be an ass, just Captain Obvious.

    i think az gt eater was saying that to prove a point to the sti guy point being that the reason why he lost was because the TA had it in a lower gear, and got a good jump on him,

    i dont think he was spraying, if he was he'da killed you assuming you are near stock?

    the ls1's are highway monster, a shot of N2O on the freeway is gonna send that LS1 screaming up to 150 mph in no time, you could be completely stock and murder a ls1 from a dig tho

    It is said that ss camaro and ls2 gto are almost identical when going from a roll.

    Assuming both are stock yes they are quite identical.

    It's nearly impossible to tell you what he had done. It could've been all bolt ons, a cam, maybe H/C/I, or as you said possibly a shot of N20. Tough to say.

    I don't think he was stock... The SS and other cars I have raced had like exhaust and intake. This guy was running three gauges, so I think something else was up under the hood.

    Well lets see. Gauge#1 was a compass meter. Gauge#2 was a temperature meter, and gauge #3 was probably a clock. JK im bored today. You win some you lose some. I have lost 3 - C5 vette, LS2 GTO, and the one who smoked me, a turbo audi. And i have won 6 - Z28 nos, SRT4 stage2, mustangs, ect.. LS1's and 2's are the better competition and the most you see on the road too.

    I CAN REED I saw what type of car you had. Thanks, I am just saying that gearing will help a lot. When I come up on one of those Wrx's on 1-10 with my ws6 instead of the damn work truck I will report back. I just know that a wrx won't have the snap at 70 or 120 that I have. Maybe when the driver figures out what gear he needs to be in... I will lose. who knows?

    Youre going pull him easy. A blow off valve doesnt add any power so its stock basically.

    Your car has more snap at 70 or 120 because it has 100+ more whp than a WRX. Even if its an STi youll still have an extra 60-70whp more (assuming stock vs stock).
