lol. no i remembered to shift. its just that i had been running the shit out of it all night and when the tranny gets hot it gets a little hateful. Especially when you're trying to shift it like i do. Plus factor in a semi broken tranny mount that makes the shifter bounce and lil on a take off and sometimes its kinda hard. lol i probably should have explained that when i posted. lol still a funny vid though.

A STi is nothing without it's awd launch. From a roll it's only a mid 14 sec car.

Your kidding right? An STI pulls on a SRT4 from a roll barely, but still pulls, and traps 102 to 104. Thats the trap speed of a mid to high 13 second car. A WRX trapping at 94 to 96 MPH is more likely to pull a mid 14 without a launch. I ran 14.7 when I first got my car bogging the launch with just a GP moto intake elbow and filled tranny mount.

oh make no mistake about it. i wasn't trying to beat my buddies sti. we just wanted to make a vid showing how almost impossible it is for a fwd to keep up off the line. I don't mind showing the vid. i'm racing my boy so i don't care. i've had my ass handed to me a number of times. lol But i will tell ya that from a 50 roll in 2nd gear (for me) to 130 its all he can do to pull 2-3 cars. Not bad for a gsr with basic bolt ons vs a sti 18psi, 4inch downpipe, 3 inch exhaust. I've ran a number of stock sti's from a roll and its pretty much dead even. I've had only one stock sti that pulled me by half a car. I wonder how bad my buddy would pull me if i got a fidanza 7.5lb flywheel, skunk manifold, and ecu chipped to 8800. I could get all that for $400. Bet he wouldn't pull much if anything.

I like the STI. It is a machine MADE to be raced. I am not ragging on you. I do enjoy watching a good race. When I am losing I don't want to show it though. That is why I said what I said about your skills.

I would never post anything on the internet, friend or foe, about them owning a faster car, because, I think my car is the baddest thing on the planet, and then when it is proven that it is not, it spoils my day. :p ;) :rolleyes

That has got to be a fucking joke.

I would pick a STI over a EVO MR also for a couple reasons,1 being the EVO has jack shit for power before the turbo spools and 2 the low speed turning radious(sp) of the EVO is absolutly un acceptable for me.

Also the STI is sold as a detuned racecar with everything you need to hit the track/rally coarse(not drag track)
