    My sti vs. Lightning

    Okay...so I was driving down to the beach recently because there was a big meeting at tom's river, but on the way down I hear this loud - ass exhaust from behuind me and he overtakes me at proabbly 110 mph. I step on it and catch up to him eventually. We both slow down...and before we decide to go...this was at about 45 - 50 on the parkway...he makes the motion of jerking off at me. This pissed me off. Just about then i hear 3 beeps and i go. He had no chance. By the time i looked over he was completely behind me, and had just lost. I dind't see him the rest of the way down there..sti owns once again.

    and yes..ford stinks

    Just about everybody has major distaste for one car company or another. My dad owns a Mustang (65 fastback) and have always been bias to fords but since I now own a WRX I'd much rather hear about someone beating some loser punk who's giving the jackoff sign like an a$$. Aside from that I do like them Light-nin's. I like those Dodge ram Rumble Bee's too

    Nice kill man, too bad you werent able to see his face get bright red from embarrassment.

    Im not buying any of this......

    A stock STI and stock Ning run about the same 1/4 mile. One has the better 60 foot times than the other, but yet the other seems to make it up.........

    This race happened from 50 and you smoked him? hmmm

    You better have more than a downpipe or else you just beat a driver.

    Stock Lightnings do not run the same 1/4 times as STi's. Most run high 13's, although I have seen some get into the mid 13's with slicks, whereas stock STi's have hit low to mid 13's trapping at 100-105 mph Given equal drivers, even from a roll, the STi is a smidge faster. Lightnings have trapped anywhere form 99-105 mph which is about where STi's trap. Since this happened from a 50 mph I can definently see a stock STi winning, because the gearing is still in the STi's advantage. However since the Lightning has a massively sweet powerband it can still keep it close despite it's weight disadvantage.

    I can believe this, I raced a L on the highway back when I lived in CT, he actually got the jump on me but I reeled him in and overtook him. One thing that needs mentioning is that the L starts to suffer aerodynamically much more so than the sti once you get into the higher speeds. Parasitic drag is huge on those things above 100-110.

    although STi's are not the most beastly things at high speeds, neither are lighnings. I guess I can believe it, but what gets me is he said it was really load. Common mods on a lighning are chip, exhaust, pulley, etc.. and a bolt on lighning would walk an STi at those speeds.
