    Well. just thought I'd give this thread an update. Finally got a commitment from the z3, accord, optima, and GtI to go out to a farm and pull a time trial on a five mile paved loop. So here are the times for your reading pleasure

    03 WRX 7:14
    02 Z3 7:28
    GTI 7:56
    Accord 9:47
    Optima DNF

    I was surprised that the Z3 didn't blow my time away, but I guess it had a harder time with the curves than I expected.

    Haha, guy tried to slam on the brake mid-turn and spun it into a ditch. Took us a couple hours to find someone with a truck to tow it out. Still not sure how much damage he caused.

    Hopefully, it damaged little more than his ego, just enough for him to be a little more humble.

    To the OP....

    As a new WRX owner..... you'll soon start to realize that you are the envy of all non-Suby owners. Everyone wants to talk smack.. 99% can't back it up. Chances are, they bought a "ricer" because they couldn't afford a Suby.... or didn't know enough to even look until it was too late.

    You have nothing to prove. The VR6 "might" stand a chance..... but keep in mind, your car is easier, and cheaper to modify, and make significantly faster. Honestly, I think you could take him on the strip anyway.

    Again... street racing is stupid... you have nothing to prove.

    If you wanna prove something... take it to the local drag strip.

    I walked away with my head held high last time when I was running 2-3 tenths quicker than brand new Corvettes. That'll teach those old gray-haired, balding, fat senior citizens to Spend $60K on a turd--LOL

    Anyway... it was a MUCH more satisfying than a dangerous street race.

    I get the Hon-duh dumbasses pull up next to me on the road all the time.... I see them racing to try to catch up to me... then they get close.... see the blue glow from all my gauges.... the brake calipers, etc.... and it's AMAZING how un-interested they are after they get a closer look--LOL

    I do occasionally get a dumbass that pulls up next to me.... I just laugh right in his face. If you rub your fingers together (as if to say, "wanna put some money on it")... they ALWAYS run away... every time--LOL

    Please don't streetrace..... it's so stupid.

    Can you really setup a race at the dragstrip? Seems to me it's just the luck of the draw what u race against, as they clear the staging lanes out.

    But, this is a good response. I always liked the % comparison on the street.

    Anyway, IMHO stock WRXs are in the 90% bracket on the street (ie, can beat most stock cars to be seen, from minivans to GTIs).

    Stock STIs and Stage 2 (or a little more) are 95%ers. This gets you into the range of smoking any stock VW, Hondas, or the like.

    Stage 1 STI or well better than Stage 2 WRX gets you to 98%. Now you are running with lightly modded GTOs, C6, Porsche, newer M3's, etc.

    Go Superzilla (big ass turbo w/ all the supporting mods) you are in 99% land.

    But let's all remember, there is always some sleeper like a LSx f-body that can and will smoke you.

    Dont worry about any of those cars beating you. I've raced them all and beaten them all.
    When you do things right people wont be sure you've done anything at all.

    Don't scoff too much at the Hyundai/Kia cars, soon enough the Genesis will be for sale and thats nothing to laugh at. 220hp I4 turbo, 312hp V6, and possibly a supercharged V8 with around 400hp.

    I have driven the V8 model and its only going to be in the 4 door sedan. Its a fast mother ****ing car thought. they are not going to put the v8 in the two door coupe that only gets the turbo 4 and the V6.
