    whats the thumbsdown about? M3s are awesome cars and are pretty quick from the factory adding any kind of FI to that. and bye bye. plus its not like the guy was being a bigshot and bragging about it.

    that m3 is beautiful

    No thumb down needed here, the M owner even kept saying how the STi driver was a "very good guy".

    I am not surprised at that outcome but with some more mods the sti could take him a s/c m3 is not invinsible

    We did two runs...the first one my wife didn't get much of with the camera. But it was similar to the below run.



    I wish my wife would tape my races...
    Props to the fast as hell M3.

    hmm 21 psi on what turbo, if it's a vf39 and that's a top dog in that area that's quite funny.

    idk, the m3 only made 16whp more than his sti, and he got killed that bad. the race should've been closer than that. i know awd is not good from a roll,but something just isn't right. i would like to know what turbo the sti is running?

    I doubt its the 39. 400whp on a 39 would be basically impossible.

    Its perfectly feasible. The M3 is making about 20whp more than the STi. Not to mention the M3 has superior gearing, a higher redline, and a flatter torque curve. What happened seems PERFECTLY legit.

    Doubt it's gearing M3 and sti are pretty damn close in gearing when comparing the 6mt's with the exception that the m3's got a taller first

    It's really hard to tell about the torque curve without knowing anything about the sti,plus with its short gearing starting at 60 it wouldn't matter very long. With stock shift points on the usdm 6mt you should be getting into the next gear right around 5500rpms which combined iwth the load at higher speeds would put you in your sweet spot on most larger turbos.

    I just chalk it up to a 300lb weight difference and the fact dynos don't mean anything.

    That's the most important thing here. 400whp on one dyno can be 350whp on another and 450whp on another. Regardless of which car dyno'ed at what level, we obviously know which one is faster.
