    Lightbulb is300 Vs. Wrx

    Which do you think would win? The is300 is bone stock with an auto trans and the wrx is an 02 with a munual and a gutted up pipe. If i decide to race I will have $200 on it
    I have seen internet numbers that say that I should win but always want more than one opinion.
    Thank for the feedback

    They're slower than the new Civic SI so you'll prob win if he's stock.

    my buddy has a stock auto IS300 and I have driven it before and they are not that quick. I have an auto WRX and my car felt much more stronger stock so for you to have a manual, it should win w/o a problem.

    yeah he might say hes stock but if hes blown it will be bye bye to you in a hurry my friend has an is300 but its manual stock for now, and I am stg2, by the end of second gear i put about a bus length on him even without launching but he then stays much closer in 3rd their gearing and our AWD makes the cars very close at higher speeds, never went past 80 though so don't know if 4th gear would be a disaster for me.

    mmm no way you should be losing to one or even think you might lose to a stock one wit a cobb stage 2 wrx. I handed z's their a$$ with a bugeye with up/dp/catback +mbc. Have more confidence in your car!!! or make sure nothing is wrong with it.

    IS300's are only a threat with FI. Even with bolt-ons they are still "slow". They are nice cars though, always liked the IS300 in black.

    I raced a stock auto is300 with my pretty much stock 5 spd wrx (catback), and took him by 2-3 cars from 0-70 with no launch.
