    To the OP - if you've got the money to dump into the WRX you can make it as fast as you want to.

    That's just retarded. There are plenty of plain Stage 2 WRXs that run 13.6 1/4 miles. No need to pick on someone who did a whole lot of work on their car only to find out that they can't drive.

    Besides, what do the Stage 1 brake kit and STI hood scoop add to the straight line performance.

    if you can't go 14.0 in even a stock 02wrx 5spd you need more practice. as well as deep 13s high 12s in a stock sti. i assume both 06+wrx's and sti's should be even faster in stock from. less cash on mods and more on driving practice.

    Dude, you need to do some more searching...

    I ran a 13.4@101 with basic catted stage2. The guy you are referencing either cant drive or his setup is not correct.

    im not picking on this guy, just using it as an example. this kind of performance wouldnt even come close when racing a corvette, but like everyone says it could just be the driver.

    I went 13.3 with less mods than that in my 02 before.

    With my current mods, I am pretty sure i'll be in the very high 12's this summer on the stock turbo and motor
    You chose a car with $1,500 worth of more or less pointless mods for a stage2 setup.

    Many good drivers hit mid-low 13's your basic stage2 setup and good driving.

    Again, trying to play power-catchup with a C5 vette is a very uphill battle. However, properly driven stage2 wrx's will run close, and protuned ones might even pull a car or so. The roll is where it gets ugly, and a Z06... well... forgetaboutit.

    Well, the '06+ WRXs are capable of high 13's stock. There's at least one guy on here who did a 13.7 stock, I believe. Do some searching and you'll find his thread I'm sure. And, there are plenty of others who have done 13.9s in stock form. Now, just because the car is capable of such times doesn't mean that the driver can do it.

    those numbers are decieving, because it depends which part of the country your running in. your times could fluctuate almost a full second depending on how high you are above sea level and the temp. you cant assume that all 06 wrx's can run 13.7. they cant.

    I'm simply stating that the car is "capable" of those times. I was by no means implying that everyone in every part of the country can do those numbers. And, if we're going to do paper racing then we'll have to take the times that the cars are capable of and pit them against each other. As to your other point, whether or not any of us have ever beaten an Corvette is irrelevant. The OP was simply asking what it would take to beat one and I think we've answered that question for him.

    I have beaten a corvette in a WRX before. It was an 03 z06. I had 400whp with an SZ49 on a fully built 2.5 STi block with JDM Spec C heads, STi 6mt, turboxs fmic, all supporting mods. That car had about 45k invested in it at the point where I was beating cars like Z06's.
