    Sti vs Z28 - 2nd Gear Deadspot

    so I've leaving the "city" after hanging out... get on the highway, see this RX8... and start playing with him... barely half throtle is more then enough for them... but then we come accross this Pepsi Blue STi... and he starts to follow too... at this point the RX8 gives up after I kinda mashed for a second and he saw I was just playing with him...

    so the STi starts following me and passing (very light traffic)...we are doing about 80mph (speed limit is 55-60)... then he hits it while he's still ahead of me (by at least 5 cars cutting through the last of the traffic) and I hit it too and he pulls for a second then I start catching him...when I'm about 2 cars away he turns into this smalled 2 lane Highway... we still play around...then we U-turn... and are finally able to have 1 solid run...

    50mph I'm in 2nd Gear (Automatic)...and the car doesn't feel too strong... I mash then lift completly cause he didn't go... but as I lift he goes...(hasn't he ever heard of counting down!!!) ... so I hit it after he does...immedietly errase his half a Car lead... I shift to 3rd at about 4,900rpm so the car shifted at like 5,500 (GHEY EARLY SHIFT!!!)...but I still start to pull away... as we get to about 100mph we have to stomp on the brakes cause of cars up ahead... all in all...I let him get a 1/2car jump...then I catched him and put half a car on him... had we gone further I could've seriously put about 2 cars on him...

    DAMN 2nd GEAR DEADSPOT scared the shit out of me... some freaking STi that I should've destroyed from a 15mph 1rst gear Roll... !!! oh well I still won

    Sounds like fun. Get a stall and rape him next time. Damn autos and their wide gear ratios, gotta keep the LS in the meat of the powerband.

    RIP S4 06Tbss

    I ve done roll races in drive and in 2nd/1st and it seems like my best bet was just leaving it in D ? Maybe its just me.....But if you do race tonight it might be a good race thats out sweet spot for sure but its also a sweet spot for that STI, turbo from a low roll like that can surprise ya.....Have fun with it tho always fun no matter what !

    true... but odly enough had it been from a 15mph, I would've had him by at least a car or 2... because that's been the result from previous STi races I've had... with SEEMINGLY stock ones... from 15mph by the time I hit 110mph he had given up and I kept going till 125mph... just because I felt like flashing the lights on him as he saw me dissapear

    ya because those things launch good and if you take that away from them and their turbo is not spooled which it is not a 15 in first your superior torque and power curve will kill them.
