    Huh? No offense, but the WRX is not really near as fast as those other two cars in your "category". The STi definately is but the WRX, stock, is not keeping up with either of those two. And from a roll, The S/C'd SS would be a driver's race for the 06 TR. That's just the way it is.

    Viper SRT-10,C6 Z06
    C6,
    EVO, STI, New Mustang GT ( not really sure where to put this)
    06 WRX,SRT4,350Z
    02-05 WRX
    Cobalt SS, New Civic Si, new eclipse GT, Mazda RX-8, Mazdaspeed Protege (are these still made?)
    Celica GTS

    Thats how I usually imagine it in terms of "am I gonna beat this guy..?" , fastest are the highest, and the furthest left.

    Not sure if I'm right, but thats how I'd put it if I was out on the street and had no internet to look things up. I'm also too lazy to go look things up right now. I based this on 1/4 mile. I know i left some cars out, but this was off the top of my head.

    Still not even sure why I made this post. I just woke up.

    the new corvette outdoes the SRT-10? I always thought that the Viper was the fastest thing on the road (stock at least), but then again i haven't really been keeping up with corvette specs as of late. My mistake on the car ranking thing. I didn't know that the SRT-4 was a real competitor for the STI or the evo (i knew i was a turbo 4, but i've never checked its specs). What are the specs (rough estimates) on the SRT-4, and is there more than one model of the evolution (kinda like WRX and WRX STI)? I've heard of the Evolution MR, but I'm not exactly sure what the difference is.

    As far as I know the Viper is faster than the C6 Z06.

    The SRT-4 is good for a 14 flat 1/4 mile.

    The Evo comes in a few designations.

    Evolution VIII, Evo MR, Evo RS and Evo IX. The MR is the most expensive, and fastest.

    Both cars are pretty closely matched, but the C6 Z06 edges it out on the overall performance catagory... And from the 3 comparisons I have seen with the two cars, the mag has picked the Z06 as its winner every time.

    The new Vette certainly did very well at Nurburgring.

    Correct. The Cobalt SS has a high output n/a 171hp 2.4L engine (costs 17K), while the Cobalt SS supercharged has an Eaton M62 s/c blowing 12psi of boost into a 2.0L engine and is conservatively rated at 205hp (costs 20K).

    The n/a 171hp SS is still very peppy, but not in the same league as the s/c SS model...

    No more complaining. Edit the chart if you want to complain I left cars out. Otherwise, I'll have none of it.
