    Ultimate Street Car Challenge 2005 - Who do YOU think will win and why?

    Im a huge fan of SportCompactCar and I love this contest they put on every year. So im wondering what you guys think.
    So Vote! I left the Integra off the list because the most I can put on is 10.. and that car is way too mild to win the contest, but if i does win i'd be quite suprised.
    I'd love to see the STi win this year, but I wont say who I think is gonna win it.

    REMEBER! Its NOT the UltimateTrackCar contest, its the UltimateStreetCar, so the car has to be well balanced, so an all out horsepower monster without refinement will fail
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    For anyone who doesn't pay attention the Ultimate Street Car Challenge is a competition that Sport Compact Car magazine has been holding for the last four years. They accept applications of hundreds of cars and narrowed that list down to 11 that will compete for the trophy. The competition covers multiple aspects of each vehicle, from road performance, power, driveability, a burnout contest and more. The winner of last years challenge was a rather stock looking '95 Toyota MR-2 with a V-6 Camry engine transplant. -Taken from forums.livingwithstyle.com topic : USCC

    DynoComp's Sti is NOT a trailor queen, not only was Richard Garcia the Owner of the car he was the only owner to sack up and drive his own car, the rest were driven by professional drivers, Richard has broken many axels with his STi, and it is insulting that you call his car a trailor queen. I know this because I goto DynoComp and know Richard, also azimuit here has gotten a few rides in the car.
    Honda's are like tampons every P---y has one.

    I hate these " street car " challenges.

    The STi's / WRXs usually claim 450+ hp and run mid 13s?

    In the last street tuner challange that I saw the highly modded STi ran slower than a stock STi?

    I like how they left out Vettes and Mustangs or even BMWs and Mercs.

    It is not an "ultimate challenge" without every one being represented, or at least given an opportunity to enter.

    This is why the younger crowd thinks domestics don't handle, because of stupid competitions like this where the domestics are left out. More fuel for the ricer fire.
    Current Vehicle: 2006 Volvo S60 R Sonic Blue/Atacama
    SOLD:
    2006 Graphite Gray Evo IX
    2004 STi
    2003 SVT Cobra
    2003 SVT Lightning

    They Really need to have one impartial/professional driver drive all the cars, after all, it's not the ultimate driver competition.

    and have a bone stock stock zo6 or M3 just for comparison...
    I drive a '04RS, & don't have the inclnation to change my s/n...

    I think they have rules about what kind of motors can be run, and pushrods are out. Also people vote most of those cars in, if there is no m3's and cobra's it is because none of them asked to be in the voting.

    what needs to be entered next year is a new model z06 vette or whatever with a aggressive alignment, sticky tires and a big shot o nitrous for next year.. id think that would actually place real well. but id doubt that would happen it would show a fairly mild build of a car whoopin the piss outta the other cars.
