I Gained 2/10th's

Well My buddy was up from Florida with his new 06 Subie WRX Impreza STi and he wanted to go up to the Drag Strip to see what it'd run. It was kinda Humid out and while the sun was out, we ran HORRIBLE times. His first run, he ran a 14.5 and i ran a brutal 17.3. As the night got cooler and the my R/T got better, mine and his runs improved

The best time was a 16.363 @ 82.30 with a 60' of 2.400
My best 60' of the night was a 2.325. I guess my SVT Suspension, 17 inch SVT rims with Stock Coni's, and my 2000 intake manifold helped a bit from the last time. Last year i ran a Best of 16.5 at that same track at roughly the same temp.

The Subie, on the other hand, did much better than me (obviously)

He only got about 3.5 runs in. His best time was a 13.995 @ 96.68 with a 60' of 1.931. He says that he was only hitting 12lbs of boost and shoulda hit around 14lbs. I guess the reason behind that was it was sooo hot out and the car couldn't cool down enough to run FULL stock PSI. He says if he could run around the block he'd be back up to 14 PSI.

Now you may be wondering why i said 3.5 runs. Well, he participated in what they called a backwards race. The backwards race consisted of going down the track backwards as fast as possible (obviously). Well needless to say that the STi.................LOST TO AN AUTO FOCUS SPI!!!!!!! I'm not knocking the SPI, i'm just proud that a Econobox beat a faster car. The Focus ran a 24 second backwards 1/4 & the Subie ran a 26 second 1/4. The reason that the focus won was because of the rev limiter. He had the launch down because of the AWD but the Focus had the speed, in reverse I think they said the focus was going 40+ in reverse and the subi was doing like 34ish.

All in all it was a great time, but MAN i hate going to a track that's super busy like that. We were there at 5 o'clock on the dot. Didn't get a run in untill 5:45pm. I had 4 more runs and didn't leave there till around 11. Not bad, but still sucks with the hurry up and wait stuff. Sadly i lost in the bracket races to a AUTO Acura who had a dial in time of 17.85 I coulda went for another round, but i guess it wasn't in the cards. Sadly i was the only focus doing the NORMAL 1/4
