Default Moded WRX

Just raced a friends modded WRX. He's running about 290 whp ( more than what STI's run). Ran from a 60- 65 pull. No contest, just pulled him everytime right off the start and then would pull up to about 2-3.5 car lengths and hold it all the way. Pretty fun I know he'd take me off the line but I'd catch him.

Yeah, I was walking STIs back when I had only 220whp. I was kind of amazed how slow they were for all the power they supposedly had.

just had an encounter with a evo 9 today. Went from a 50 pull. It was very close, I pulled about 1- 2 car length off the start then he pulled closer and held about .5-1 car length behind me. He was very impressed ... we went to the gas station and talked to him for a bit. He just wasn't some spoiled kid that parent's bought an evo and then they think they are hot stuff ( like almost all the evos in my area). Nice guy.... but nicer kill

P.S. was not stock he said was running around 270 whp.
