Z06 loses to modified WRX (link & video)

I found this over on clubwrx.net. Z06 owner challenges WRX owner to a race for $500 cash and never pays up. It's ashame this guy got his mouth into something that his pocket couldn't afford.

"This is my WRX. The guy said he wanted to run for a large sum of money. Started at 500$, then went to 1000$. I took him up on it. He had me pop the hood and I did gracefully. I did not ask him his mods or to do the same because I was that confident in my car. I beat the guy twice and he never paid up.

After I beat him the second time the passenger out of the vette, and another guy came up and sucker punched me. Lets just say that it did not end there. Ended up a huge ordeal and them calling the police on me saying I had a gun, which I didn't and me being searched and my car being searched.

This vid is spreading like wild fire all over the net and I am getting support from guys that normally are import haters. Go ahead and post it up where ever you want just to show that our cars are no joke.

He should've been able to beat you with a stock Z06 if your numbers are correct in the sig. This is not accounting for driver skill of course or traction on the street you guys were racing on.

I say that if the guy bet $500/$1000 to race you, he should've paid up. After all, you raced him twice and it looks like you traded lanes.

Also, what was the guy doing with a passenger? Did you have a passenger?

Anyone here want to own up to stiffing this guy? I believe that you owe him some money.

Remember that punks drive all makes and models of cars, so please don't let this guy give you the perception that all Z06 drivers are like him.

Thanks for posting the link Focker, I wasn't aware that one needed to be registered to view it.

In the first video the Z06 driver appeared to smoke the tires halfway down the road. Did you guys see the WRX driver's launch technique? He was bouncing it off the rev limiter and slipping the clutch. It would be interesting to see how long his car lasts with that kind of abuse. I posted it because I thought it was interesting that the Z06 driver instigated the race then pussied out when it came time to pay up.

[EDIT]After taking a closer look at the video, the Z06 driver did not smoke the tires, it actually sounds like he hits the rev limiter.

It's old news that WRXs are quick. That guy should've been a little less cocky. As far as racing for money goes, the money should be gathered up beforehand. Didn't you watch the 'Furious' movies?

There are always 2 sides to any story so I'll reserve my opinion about this race and it's consequences. At first glance, it would appear that you won the race and any money that was bet on the outcome. Would have to hear the other guys side to form any firm opinion.

I do however, find the wording in your links a little distasteful, especially on a Z06 site. You can leave the links, but I would appreciate it if you would rename them.
Thanks for your cooperation

Mike

I've watched and run a lot of WRX's at the Irwindale 1/8th mile strip here in SoCal and with their all wheel drive, they get off the line pretty good. As I recall, most of them run the 1/8th in 8.2 @ eighty something, which is where I see most Corvettes run. My Vortech Z06 runs 7.8 @ 96, but traction is an issue with the stock tires. When I've run against WRX's, it is pretty even out to 330', but after that they can't keep up.

It hurt a little to see that Enco Box whip the Z06. Never bring a knife to a gun fight. :crazy:

It's not my wording, dude. I'm just helping out by posting exactly what was posted on the WRX thread so others here could see it.

Do you think that much of your car in that you can't see it being called a bad word...and it gets you bent out of shape? It's just words. Step down off your pedestal why don't you.

Focker we praised your win....And you did an excellent job

But No reason to get on here and disrespect a Moderator.

If you dont like what you read here bro. Feel free to take your WRX and go to another forum.

You are now giving WRX owners a bad name.
