Smoking an STI

Finally got a good race against an STI. It was from about a 20mph roll and we were both in 1st. My friend Brandon was driving my car. The Sti didn't have anyone with him. I yelled "punch it" out of the window and the STI hits it first. Brandon waited for him to go first just to rub it in his face, LOL! Well we row through the gears and caught up to him in 2nd and went into 3rd, then it was good bye. We pulled a car length in front of him. It was awesome and good driving on Brandon's part. I am currently putting down 285ish on my buddy's datalogger dyno. One run yeilded 311. It is really accurate.

It's all in good fun though. I never take it to seriously. The guy with the STI is a buddy of mine. I usually only race against someone only if I know them. That way there is no trouble.
Good advice though. It is never good to get cocky. There's always a faster car.
Oh sorry. Not use to your setup of threads yet. Should have posted in the hangout I guess. Thought it was just an all around general discussion deal here.
I spoke to the guy with the STI. He was kind of disappointed that he doesn't have the money to mod it up to beat me. Oh well. Better luck next time for him. I had to set him straight after he smoked a black EVO in town 3 times from a stop. It was fun. Actually my buddy set him straight since I was a passenger that night. It's all good fun, LOL.

Anyone else have any good race stories?

Forgot to mention that his STI is stock.
I had the same problem when I was in Twentynine Palms, CA. It's sea level here in AZ, but it is like 5000 or 6000 above there. I thought something was wrong with the car, like bad gas. It was just the elevation though.

What makes the STI so snappy is there bigger displacement. That 2.5l spools the turbo up super quick and makes alot of low end grunt.

I want to do a stroker kit on the evo in the far future.
I have a couple of vids of me running a damn quick 97gtp, 93 SVT Cobra, and a turbo Prelude. I will see what I can do to get them up on the boards.
