thats weird. im in southern florida and lost to an STi. i have no doubt it was modded...a friend of mine knows the guy supposedly and he has about 450 hp. he had me by about 1.5 - 2 car lengths going from a 45 mph roll. i slowly started gaining on him when we hit about 100 mph....had to back off once we hit 125 though...good thing cus i have a nonsport sedan and the traffic was picking up =P.
