1/4 Mile video of 96 STS killing a WRX

Recommended Posts

Went to the track in my 96 STS and hit 14,6 on this run. I ahd the WRX film this one from his car and the footage is excellent. I will be posting it on www.adumbrecords.com/hosting when he posts it. I have a few videos up there now, but this one isn't up yet. If you would like it now, email me at agustinjcruz@bellsouth.net I beat him by about 4 car lengths and in the video he say "dude he annihilated me" very funny. My best time so far is 14.5.

You kept pulling away the entire run! The STS looked terrific!

Early on sailors navigated by the stars at night and the North star became the symbol for finding ones way home. Once you know where the Northstar is you can point your ship in the right direction to get home. So the star became a symbol for finding ones way home or more symbolically even finding ones path in life.

Thanks, that's why I was so stoked the video came out clear. Did you hear the WRX driver say "Dude, he annihilated me" and his friend say "did he get you off the line? This was our second run. The first run my son videod and he just took a video of the 1/4 mile track in front of us, but he sounds so funny when he says Dad, holy crap you're beating him. I also have that footage if you would like it. it does show how sweet the N* sounds when wound up.

I would like to hear the NS from within your car! Yesterday I did a series of five 40 to 70 WOTS in second gear and the engine DOES sound awesome when it winds up.

Good Job! ;) The N* sounds good at high RPM. No wonder he was surprised you kicked butt; on paper you shouldn't have won. At least from 0-60. The video shows you pretty much had him from the beginning and pulled away in a pretty impressive fashion. It looks like you raced a 2002 WRX?

Timeslips! I love it! 14.5 seconds is an excellent time for a stock '96! Great job!

Thanks, I am guessing with slicks I can cut another couple of tenths. My goal for this stock Caddy is 14.2, although 14 flat would be great. If I can get traction control to not activate, I think that would be possible. Did you see the video of my races this past Friday, if not email me at agustinjcruz@bellsouth.net and I'll send tonight.

Great car, nice video, and racing, the way it should be, ON A TRACK. Congratulations on the wins. :D

If you really want to make people safe drivers again then simply remove all the safety features from cars. No more seat belts, ABS brakes, traction control, air bags or stability control. No more anything. You'll see how quickly people will slow down and once again learn to drive like "normal" humans.

Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, New Jersey (central) has a public track. If you live near the city it's an easy drive down the NJ Turnpike. I searched for public tracks in NY and didn't find one. Considering all the street racing, I would think there would be at least one public track in close proximate to the five boroughs. The owner of such a track would probably make a fortune.

Quite an ambitious thought, however there would likely be a lot of opposition from residents due to noise, etc. Also, regulations, permits, finding land and building a track would cost millions. If I had the money I would certainly think about it. I believe I heard that NASCAR was/is thinking about coming to NJ in some form. I would think that by now some group of entrepreneurs would have opened a track in the immediate NY metro area, if feasible?

OK. What about oppening a small race track somewhere close to NYC? Nothing too fancy. I doubt that it could cost millions. Some investors might be interested.
