Hey all,

If you stopped and read my post below about me freaking out about what I was going to do to beat this ass in a WRX then you know I didn't have much time to prepare. But anyway

Came to this morning at 10.00am, and it was about 65*, about 70 or so on the strip when me and this guy got ready. Green came and I got the best launch I have ever had, a lot because of what you guys told me, and was about to his rear door behind the WRX off the dig, and about 3 seconds into the run, I was half a car length ahead, and finished with a time of 14.51 @ 97 MPH, the WRX had a time of 15.21 @ 89 MPH.... Sooooo I WON :happyhapp I left after that because I couldn't and didn't want to go up against anything else, just had to prove myself to that ******* and show em all what happens when you get good information from good people on here!:worship :winks :wavey Thanks guys for all your help! IT worked great!

I ran my tank down to 1/4, filled it up with premium and put in som Ethanol, went down to Thomas Exhaust, had him build me a super simple race exhaust, no cats, X pipe, glass packs and it dummed out with turn downs right before the axle. I Took out everything I could minus the seats, and made sure my tire pressure was good. Thats pretty much it along with my K&N

Car&Driver launched at 6,000 RPM. But then, they didn't have to worry about a broken tranny & warranty!
:happyhapp


Car-Stats.com Report for 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX
Obtained from C&D October, 2001
0-60:
5.4
Transmission: Manual
1/4 Mile:
14.1

1/4 Speed:
96

I've seen 'em go a lot slower (upper 15's) with a more reasonable RPM launch. I can beat 'em in my 6 so long as they don't do the 6,000 drop. But that's a heck of a good time for a pre-boost launch in the WRX.

Total Spent with gas and all- 388.32
Trash talk you kidding me? that ******* tried to call the race on me after that because he said my car wasn't stock that I had done engine work and all. It was stupid, I was legal, so was he. Now whenever I see that guy driving around (like today) he gives me the finger. Oh well, stupid rice. Stupid stupid rice... ;)

Did you disconnect the battery? seems like 0.06 secs is not a lot given the exhaust mods . . .

I hate when they challenge you and then can't accept defeat, a while ago I raced my brothers Integra RS against a Civic SI, I knew his car was faster but he didn't know how to drive as good as I did so I beat him, not by much but I beat him nonetheless like 4 times in a row and he still won't accept it, he swears on his grave we're spraying "NAWZZZZZ", and just to keep him pissed off I won't show him what's under the hood...he can't realize that he keeps losing cause he dumps the clutch at 5k rpm and spins the tires too freaking long
*only thing my brother has is an AEM intake, DC Headers, AEM fuel pressure reg, and AEM fuel rails with good plugs and wires...other than the fart can exhaust*
