    well to give you the benefit of the doubt... Lets say the STi driver was rounding up and only makes 387whp. That still means on top of the quicker shifting SMG, the better gearing, the same weight, then the M3 is still making over 30whp more... I dont see what is so difficult to comprehend about this. That STi had to been making AROUND 400whp (say 385-400). anything less and that M3 would have completely destroyed him instead of what he actually did, which was moderately walk him.

    Just watched it again for the 4th time...

    I've seen a lot of races and I wouldn't exactly call that a "moderate walk"...

    He didn't leave him standing still or anything but that was definately a rather brisk walk...



    Who cares, it is what it is, the M is faster, or the STi driver sucks...

    that is why I care. I dont believe the problem lied soley in the driving capabilities of the STi driver. I think the STi just got beat by a car better designed for those speeds, that was also making 20-30whp more

    Either that or the driver is too damn lazy to put down his burrito and shift.

    the sti is way out of its league on a 60-120 run.. he needs at least 50 more whp. from a dig he would have done awsome.. but im still pretty sure that m3 would procede to pass him around 115-120ish

    im suprised more people dont n2o wrx's and sti's i think a 50whp shot would do a lot of damage with a wrx.. i saw a bad ass port setup that did 200whp on stock tranny if you window switch it at a higher rpm your tranny will last forever because the car will already be moving.

    If the guy is on nasioc/i-club i guess we'll never know since they dont like the whole street racing thing.
