Paging: Guy in Blue STi on 20 tonite

Just wondering who it is and if he is on here. Blue STi, had a girl in the car and someone in the backseat weaving through traffic on Rideout, took the 565 exit and then took 20. Pulled next to me and i revved, dropped a gear and waitied for them to gas it. Im not real sure if they did, but i took off for a second to see if they were on it. I guess not. Whoever it was...i wish you would have gotten on it with me. Sorry to bother you if you werent interested!

Are you sure it was an STI? If it had a "Turbo XS" sticker on the either rear window, it's a friend of mine's.

If so, that's not an STI, but a regular WRX with risers on the stock rear spoiler. But I also know that he would've got on it. He doesn't back down from much.

This isn't an ordinary WRX. It's capable of running 8.0s at the track and the best so far, which was before some newer power-adding mods, was 8.4.

If he was on it, you would've have beat him by more than 2-3 cars by the top of 2nd. Anything more than that and he didn't get on it.

thats about right. I hopped on it in high second gear, like 4500rpm. Punched it and had 3 cars.

Yeah, if high 2nd gear was 70-80mph, then that's more like a top end pull. His car isn't a top end monster.

4-4500rpm in 2nd is more like 50-55. Top of 2nd is like 67mph for me.

Uhhh...I think the vette is geared like that...maybe...I think.

A lot of high performance cars go 0-60 in first gear and then 2nd will pull from there onwards. I need to pull out the vette and see what 1st gear goes to.

I went to pull out the vette and noticed the rain, so back to work I went. I'll try it out some time when it dries up. I'm curious on this now.
