    I know a lot of honda civic ex's that would make you stupid.
    dont be so quick to generalize specific makes and models as being "rice" whatever the hell you think that term might signify... you're just making yourself look ignorant.

    S2000's are pretty tough to drive from a dig, but as soon as their in their power band (It takes forever if you don't launch it right), they will start pulling on a stock rex. With minor mods though the rex should be able to hang pretty decently, and even start pulling away.

    I had some fun with a 2000 the other night on my way home. Just a few pulls on the highway.

    i know. but i dont worry about peak numbers. s2000 like most honda's rely on powerband and not high tourque #'s.

    As an owner of both vehicles I can assure you the s2k feels faster and that it handles much better than a STOCK wrx.

    I agree... the endless redline and build up of power over the powerband makes up for the lack of torque is MOST aspects... but some torque is nice to have now and again

    The old s2k vs. wrx saga... I've raced my bro's s2k several times w/ different outcomes. When I was cobb stg1 we went form a 40mph roll and I held even until about the middle/end of third gear and then he started pulling away. We went at it a few times when I was at stage2... I walked him easily starting from about 50mph but when we raced from about 65-70mph he was able to hang with me and we couldn't pull from each other... very strange. We never went at it again after that... he just traded his s2k in for a g35. Maybe i'll get some runs in against that...

    from a dig - close race, but the s2k is the faster car (s2k=13.9-14.2 and wrx=14.1-14.4)
    from a roll - race is over, s2k will run away from you
    on a road course - race is over. With both drivers equally skilled the s2k will run away from a stock rex.

    The wrx is a econo car that was given sport. The s2k has always been a sports car and is one at heart. With basic catless exhaust mods the wrx will walk an s2k from a dig and edge it out from a roll.
    What about on a rally stage? :- )

    Does a turbo back exhaust make that much of a diff. I have a friend with an Rx-8 with exhaust, racing cat, and air intake. He raced and 02 rex with a TBE and BOV and got killed. The Rx-8 and the S2k are supposed to be similar performing cars. The wrx seemed to jump right of the start from 40 and i guess second is just geared really low because there is no way he had time for his turbo to spool up, but by the time he hit third like 3 sec into the race he must have had it fully spooled because he just continued to pull hard up to like 120.
