i dont think its a repost. some kid was talkin **** to his friend about beating the kids fd when it gets outta the shop. i happened to just meet up with the kid and start talking with him when it happened so of sourse sti boy comes down lookin all cool and **** till i ask if he wants to race for kicks (i never raced an STI).... "nahh i just got the car its only got 100 miles im still wearing it in"



blah



whos raced one before think i could have takin him by a lot



im pretty sure from a 2nd gear roll i woulda had him but i dont know about from stop. my 60's dont make many people gasp at the track

I think from a roll you'll have him but from a standing start..might be another story...espacally if he knows how to launch an awd...and most people that haven't owned a subie or a tsi don't have enough exp. in driving them to really use the awd advantage to its fullest...I've seen guys try to race there awd cars but never have driven one before..well there times are WAY bad compared to someone who has driven awd for a good while.

Depends on what you have done to the FD. Stock for stock, I think the STI would win. I beat a stock Evo that was boosting 20 psi from a roll, but then again, my FD isn't stock. It'd definitely be a good race regardless.

beating a stock evo pushing 20 psi isn't much considering the boost 19 off the floor. The is I ment a 19 psi spike before it tapers back down to what ever. now if its got a boost cont. that holds it at 20 psi thats a cool kill. but still they are fun to race. but I love it when the owners sware up and down that just adding a new fmic will add like 10 hp...when all the shops that have done dyno runs before and after all show a lose of hp and tq . Now thats funny.

The Evo is a friend and it holds at 20 pounds.



Of course I could've looked at your sig and found out your mods. If an STI beats you with those mods from a roll, then he has some Divine Intervention under his hood. We'll just leave it at that.

you'll beat him with ease ...they dyno about 255whp and weigh 3260 lbs.



I think it would take a stock FD though. Although a lot of the good 1/4mi times for the STI can be attributed to AWD...I've seen quite a few low 13's at 103-105mph.



What was the trap speed of a stock FD?

At least over here in Japan they really don't race that often, they are consider in different classes. Mosly EVO and WRX/sti racing, while FD's race supra's, GTR and some of the faster silva's.
