    my cobb stage 2 03 wrx beat one straight up no problem!

    go ahead and race him... i found out its better to just race the person than try and figure out if u will win or not... race to have fun, not to win!

    Stock verses Stock...... The lightening will probally win against the WRX
    the Sti vs ligtening ...would be close..

    The subies will have a traction advantage over the Ford...but the Ford is 390hp/440TRQ stock...depending on year

    All depends on the drivers / traction...and possible mods on both

    A stock Lightning isn't even close to an STi.

    Once they're not stock, it's all up in the air. Forced induction isn't confined to 4 cylinder engines and they have a mod path just as proven. Being a domestic RWD vehicle, it's stupid easy to go fast as long as you can afford it.

    I have taken 2 from a 40 roll. I have a tdc tuned wagon. I lost to one from a 20 pop. It would have been a dig but he didn't go at the light then when I didn't launch he punched. I caught him right away and he was at my bumper. Hit 3rd and heard the truck get real loud looked and the rear view seen a spark come out of the back of the lighting and he bolts pass me in forth and put like 3 quick ones on me. I let off when I rolled up to the light he had his window down. I said you spraying he laughed and said I can't lose to a wagon I laughed gave him a thumbs up and turned to head to work.

    If it's the S/C'd model then it is a mid-high 13sec truck and will beat a wrx from both a stop and a roll. The STi could take it though regardless of speeds.
