    how would a stage 2 vs c4 vette

    How would a cobb stage 2 wrx vs a 95 c4 corvette six speed stock, running ok. getting ready for this race when my friend comes back in about a month so I am getting ready.

    I believe the vette has a few hundred pounds more but still has more HP.. I am thinking it will be close if I get a good launch.

    From a dig you'll beat him, the stock LT1 is slow. And from a roll you'll be very close and probably beat him as long as you don't put it in 4th.

    That car is 3200 lbs with 300hp and 340 ft*lbs.

    Corvettes are hard to launch on stock tires and suspension (wheel hop) but at the 1/4 I bet its close, after that he is going to run past you.

    My friend had a C4 with side pipes and ZR1 rims , it was a beautiful looking car, his best time at the track was a 13.6@100mph. I used to race him with my supra which ran a 13.9@103mph and i would always reel him in since we never raced from a dig. I think a stage II wrx would beat a C4 from a stop and keep right up with if not beat one from a roll. My friend that had the C4 won his class with a basically stock 4.6 mustang with just suspension mods in some sort of road racing last year, so he knows how to drive.

    LT1s are closer to 3500 lbs. They aren't that light.

    The only time I have wheel hop is when I hard launch with traction control on. With competitive driving mode, I have yet to experience wheel hop.

    As long as its just a stock C4, or no more than really basic upgrades (like a catback and airfilter), it should be a pretty close race for your Stg 2 WRX. If you can launch good you should be able to hold him off for a while. From a roll its probably going to be pretty close, with him slowly walking away the higher the speeds go.

    Just race him and have fun doing it, it should be a good match. And dont forget to get it on video for all of us...
