NA 88 vs Suby WRX wagon

The Burgundy Beast is back at it!

My car: 88 NA. Stock exhaust manifold to 2.25 inch, magna flow muffler, no cats, no airpump, K&N drop in. Tokico Blues/Eibach, S4 lsd, TII rims (off my TII), no front sway bar took it off to put my beefy sway bar on my TII never put anything back on my NA.

His car: year 2000+ WRX wagon with huge exhaust and looked like 4 inch muffler. lowered/rims, decent set up I would imagine.

Guy cuts me off on 101 right before San Thomas exit on my way back from picking up my sister at mission college. I rev my engine a bunch of times (no horn) and he floors it. We take off and he pulls on me a couple car lengths from 40 to like 70. Exit comes up he lets off the gas just before he turns (i have taken the exit at 85+) but gets back on after he points his car.... I just stayed floored the whole time and made up most of the distance he put on me after I hit the apex.

We go a little further and he puts on the brakes because we both have to merge onto San Thomas Expressway. I am right on his *** as we merge on going about 65-70mph in 3rd. We both floor it and we are pretty even in the top end up to about 100+ mph.

The guy really surprised me how fast he took the exit. Even though it wasn't as fast as me I never see people in fast cars go ***** out with me... After canyon racing for 5 years and racing dozens and dozens of different cars... only about maybe 10 of them really push their car to the limits.

Also if I didn't have my sister in the car with me it may have been more even in the low end... she is 200+ pounds, pretty big girl.

Here are two pics of the turn... its a pretty nice higher speed turn if you have no one in front of you to slow you down.

Yeah my S5 TII would have taken him no prob (its only slightly slower than an EVO MR)... I will admit though my S4 NA handles better than my TII... S4s are awesome in the twisties.
