    Sorry but your friend can't drive if that is all he can do. I got lined up with a bone stock CSS at the local track and he ran 14.5 with 2.1xx 60'. Mind you, our DA during the summer is horrid, it is usually 3,000+.

Certainly a bad STi driver could get beat by a good SRT4 driver form a roll on... Why would you think they are lying??? The thing puts down 225 whp (about the same as an STi). On a roll, I'd take the SRT-4 over the G35 for sure, and call it a dead heat against a 350. Either way, these are very close races, even with the STi (from a roll) and certainly nothing to raise the BS flag about....

    +1 Srt-4 drivers aren't pulling any bs when they say they beat these guys. they are stupid fast from a roll.

    I mean the avarage ss buyer cant drive as good at the motor trend driver, dont get me wrong the ss is still fast for a stock 4, but I still think that most wrx-evo's and srt4's will take it no problem

    lol, take wrx's out of that list. most people can not launch a wrx, thus taking away its only advantage, the ss is gonna start chasing the wrx down the second it gets traction. i agree that wrx's can take it but not with no problem. haven't heard any of the 06 wrx stats yet, they might be able to keep it away from a roll.

    You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure this out.

    WRX: 3100 lbs 170 WHP

    SS is lighter and it's FWD, which enables it pull away from WRX from a roll. WRX isn't too impressive from the roll.
