Hey guys, so I was driving down barker when I see a silver WRX with a huge muffler sitting sideways like they always do... At first it doesn't seem as he even wants to get on it, so I downshift to 3 and my Rpms drop... I look over and he's smiling, that's when I knew he bit, we come up to a light and it's red. I look over and he won't even look... The lift turns green and I give it about 50% off the light, then I hear his turbo spool and his BOV as he shifts into second. I mash on it and I hear his loud ass exhaust and I never look back until about 75 and his bumper is at my rear tire and I'm just walking away.... Second race... We are already rolling and BAM he jumps on it. So I mash again and start reeling him in... Eventually I pass and he never looks over... After that I talk to my buddy with An STI, apparently he works over here and he's got the normal bolt ons... Intake full turboback exhaust, BOV and a tune... Not an amazing story but kinda proud of my basically stock TBSS especially coming from the tuner world!!!

Haha you're right. Not an amazing kill but non the less respectable. I'm a rwd TBSS with an electric fan kit that's not tuned yet and a muffler delete... Oh... Also tinted tail lights... About 20rwhp right there.

So the STI has intake, tune, turboback, and exhaust, or the guy you raced does?

What year WRX are we talking? Big difference from the 02-03's and 04 and up... and now the newest WRX's are actually faster than the STI's! haha

Anyway... sounds like a good time. Good kill.

Looks like there are several TBs in my area. Good kill. Maybe we will run into each other out there :)

I dont go to many meets but Ive been out to the track a few times. There is a meet coming up out here near Katy Mills that should be a nice turnout westside muscle is throwing. Its a night meet so it wont be so damn hot.
