    wrx vs maxima

    i have a stock 2005 wrx and my friend just got a 2004 maxima stock He keeps giving me crap about how he could beat me...what do you guys think could he beat me off the line, rolling 35mph start, or a 65mph start?

    are you kidding?
    isn't a maxima like a full size sedan family type vehicle?

    you got him on everything, and in the snow!

    good luck (not that you need it)

    short answer: no

    if its an auto and you have a manual, and you are just getting used to your car, with poor shifting i suppose anything could possibly beat you. If this is the case, i highly suggest you don't race anybody. Not worth a broken tranny, if you are able to safely take your rex to its limits, you should be able to tell it can take a maxima. GL

    oh ya, I forgot that there are some pretty quick ones out there.

    I was thinking the lower end one.
    sorry for the misinformation. I know i'd beat one though.
    I beat a slightly modded RX7 from a dig in the 0-70 with a stock WRX but I know how to drive and shift really good. and the other guy sucked.

    but keep working at it and I believe in you!

    This is magazine racing and is nothing to go off of.


    The VQ series of motors are no joke. I wouldnt want to run against one with a manual. It's going to be torque down low.

    ETs don't matter frumaroll. It's all about trap speed then. Until you get some mods there's a long line of cars faster once traction is out of the equation.
