    A stock E36 M3 should rape a stock WRX from a roll if both drivers are even. Obviously, in this case, they were not - or you raced an auto.

    E36 M3s don't have overdrive, so they pull just as hard in 4th as they do in 2nd and 3rd. I believe they trap near 100mph stock in the 1/4 mile. 100mph vs. 94mph. Hmm...

    Anyway, anything can happen out there.

    StageII vs. E36 M3 5mt would be a good race from a roll with the edge going to the wrx. The M3 traps about 98/99mph but has better gearing while the WRX stageII traps about 99/100mph and is making a good 15whp more over the M3.
    From a dig, obviously the wrx would own it.

    on one hand, i know what i experienced wasn't bs, so i don't know what to say. on the other hand, everything you say makes perfect sense.

    i'm just gonna scratch my head and forget about it.
    embattled, we prevail...only victory exhaled.
