This is a discussion on WS6 vs 06 WRX stg 2 within the Comparison: WRX vs World forums, part of the Community - Meet other Enthusiasts category; I have to agree with DTR. Something doesn't sound right here, whether it be his mods or the story....

    Well as if it hasen't been said enough. I also find this very hard to believe. I have never raced an TA or a SS but I have seen them cut modded srt-4's all night long and then stg2 wrx's get pulled by about a car by the srt-4's. Basically LS1>modded srt-4's>stg. 2 wrx's. now i know there are exceptions. And it is true that i have never see an 06' run but it can't be that much faster than 02-05 wrx's. But people on this forum have not believed some of my kill's before but what you are claiming to have done is the equivilant of me beating a stock TA which i know can't be done. So in short i would love to believe you but I am going to have to through the flag

    Will the 06 9-2x have the same 2.5 liter as the wrx? my roommate is interested and i might turn down an evo for one if it did.

    I guess anything can happen in a streetrace. The results do seem bizarre when you consider the motors involved. If I owned a lightly modded LS1, and got pulled on at the dragstrip by a stage 2 WRX, I'd go get my motor checked out the next day.

    I know many LS1 F-Body with a cam will either run with me or beat me and I run 12.1@117 consistantly.

    Having longer gears doesn't help during at low speed like >100 mph, in fact, it will hurt the track time. Why do you think people are going with 4.10 gears or shorter. Now if this was a high speed race like 100+ mph, then longer gears would help you since shorter gears will run out of gears sooner.

    2) All your runs were from a roll and did not include an AWD launch. A stageII wrx traps between 99-102mph and a stageII STi traps about 108/109mph where as a stock WS6 will trap 106/107mph and with the mods you listed we are talking more in the realm of 112/113mph which is nearly 10mph higher than your stageII wrx is capable of.

    If was a stock WS6 it would believable but still not probable (stock turbo wrx's do not pull on 6spd LS1's from roll) and to add in the mods you stated it just ridiculous.

    I am not going to sit here in argue semantics and magazine times with you all night. The fact remains that if you really did beat this guy then either he has not NEARLY not even CLOSE to the mods you stated, or he is the single handed worst driver on earth.

    You are the one arguing, If you want to set up a race, call me at 434-386-1054 and we will set up a time to run your WS6 (SINCE YOU OBVIOUSLY HAVE ONE) You will realize that you won't pull on me like you think. If you don't have one, get your friends, or your moms, or whoever you know that has one.

    And again I say, I DID NOT BEAT HIM, HE BEAT ME. I think you may need to go back to school and learn how to read.

    You guys are only BS'ing yourselves. And you are just mad that you didn't wait for an 06, and you got stuck with the 2.slow instead of the beastly 2.5

    Folks with an 06 won't put a BS flag, because we know what we have.

    Umm, yes it does. Why do you think the EVO MR runs the same or slower 0-60 than the standard evo???? It is the extra shift to get there. The extra gears are better for road racing/autox.

    Also, being a Chevy fan, you should know about the times of the 2 speed drag trans right? Why do you think that is? "what is 3 less shifts Alex"

    All this uncalled-for and irrelevant "other years suck compared to my awesome '06" talk just detracts from your credibility, and will in all likelihood just result in a locked thread. All bets are off if you're talking about modded cars, and believe me my friend, there are MANY modded '02-'05 WRX's represented on this board that would leave you for dead at the drag strip.

    Like many have said before, anything can happen in a street race. LS1's just happen to be legendary for their out-of-box power and their modd-ability, in a way that WRX's (yes, even '06's) just aren't. That makes people wonder about your story.

    Ok, I am unsubscribed. Anyone can call me if you want to race. I am done on these boards. You guys cant handle the truth.

    I never meant to put down the 02-05 wrx, but the truth is my car is faster than those years in stage 2 trim. I never mentioned anything about a fully modded 02-05 wrx. But it doesn't matter because I am unsubscribing to this sorry exuse for a thread.

    No one on this board is willing to accept anyones claims if they don't fit into their little magic box.

    I guess you and everyone else who has responded on this thread has driven/riden in/owned an 06 stage 2 wrx.

    I hope this thread does get locked. Then when you hear about the 06's beating more and more cars, you can Nay Say to those people.

    I joined this forum to help people out when they are making a decision about the car they want. I give it how I see it. it is possible the Trans Am was getting ready to blow up, and had a retarded driver. But the story is true nonetheless.

    Peace out, and have fun.
