    Stock - Lightnings really are not all that fast. A well driven stock WRX could put up a good fight to about 80mph or so.

    If we are talking about a stock Lightning.
    I also ran a 13.3 with bolt on's, and have a taken a lightning before from a dig.. but chances are that most wrx drivers are only pulling off mid 14's which means that a lightning is going to eat it.

    Yup i raced an older model Lightning with my stage 2 from a interstate exit with 2 lanes, from a stop up to about 135 when we shut down he was about one car back.

    The older models were not S/C'd. Good kill.

    My fault. I was thinking of the harley davidson edition f150. Early models were n/a then they put the lightning drivetran in them.

    They will be out in 07 as an 08 model. Oh ya, it may very well be an AWD also

    Ah, come on, I think we have all picked fights that were like David vs. Goliath. It's not like he has absolutley no chance in hell of at least making a show of it (from a dig of course). Now, when I went after the Porsche Turbo off the line and noticed he was in the next county before I was in 3rd....THAT was asking to be punched in the face.

    As a previous owner of a Lightning and a WRX, and friends with a stage 2 WRX owner, if the Lightning is stock, and you know how to drive, you should be able to take him. It will be a good race so just do it!!
