    It happens.

    Last night, a WRX (boltons/exhaust) the DSM (stock) raced against and killed from both a roll and a stop, grinded the hell out of 2nd as he misshifted to it trying to go from 3->4.

    Not ragging on anyone.

    I'm sad :(

    As far as I know it was :dunno:

    Meh, it was fun sitting on the side of the highway as 30 cars (Camaros/Mustangs/DSM's/Ricers) flew by at 100+ MPH.

    Good Night Last Night. 500HP Cobra Vs Dodge Colt with 1st Gen Eclipse Motor VS 500 HP Audi S4 VS 3 cop cars trying to catch the group of 30 cars doing over 100MPH on the freeway.

    The racers were leading at well over 150 :eek:

    Last night,

    It happened last night.

    a WRX the DSM raced against and killed from both a roll and a stop

    The DSM raced against a WRX and killed it from both a stop and a roll.

    , grinded the hell out of 2nd as he misshifted to it trying to go from 3->4.

    The WRX is the focus of this part of the sentence, as it was mentioned first.

    You're confused maybe because your brain is reading "killed from" as "killed it from." That would make the sentence incoherent.

    The sentence stands!

    The race was not BS. As I recall from overhearing the two drivers talk to each other, the WRX had boltons (intake, headers, UICP, LICP, etc...) and a full exhaust, but was running stock boost.

    The DSM has a cone filter, a home-made MBC, and a 1G crushed B.O.V. He's only running 16 psi.

    The WRX was a silver/grayish 03 with a 20-something guy driving it; he lives in Parma.
