    I was generalizing. There are some exceptions...just like there are exceptions w/Cobras. There are a handful running 12.5's bone stock, but they are few and far between, just like high 12 sec stock STi's.

    I agree.

    I really want to line up against a pullied one at the track. It seems none of their drivers can drive worth a damn. I always see them (stock) run high 13s and even 14s spinning the tires to hell. I have yet to see a modified one at the track. One day I will see one that actually has decent tires on it.

    My friend has a Cobra so we raced eachother. My car was bone stock and his had a 4.6L with cat-back, chip and intake. It all came down to whoever left the line first, and then the distance we were going. All in all, it was about even. I was very impressed with the way my WRX stood up to a seemingly faster car. Soon, with some mods, I will smoke him.

    I think it is a 2003 or something? He seemed to be pushing it as hard as he could. I will ask him if he was going easy.

    hmmmmmmmmm.... something is not right.. a stock 05' wrx is good for low 14's AT BEST. An 03' Cobra is s/c and running high 12's. With the above mods it could easily be a low 12sec car and trapping like 18mph higher than you.
    Even if it was not the s/c version they are still mid to high 13sec cars, and with those mods they would run lower 13's and still trap about 12mph higher.

    not calling bs, but just saying.. something is not right
