    Been called out by a bunch of drivers

    Hey everyone. I just recently purchased a stock 03 WRX. Now I have all these punks telling me how their car would whip up on mine, how fast they are, blah blah. I've outgrown racing on the street, and I really don't find straight-line racing to be the best measuring stick of a driver, especially since of the cars are going to be stock. A buddy of mine has a 5 mile stretch of single lane road on his farm that we could use to race, but Ii'm hoping you folks can help me avoid doing that. Here's a list of the cars that have been pestering me:

    02 BMW z3
    97 Honda Accord
    04 Kia Optima (6 cylinder)
    05 Volkswagen Beetle (1.8t)
    03 VW GTI (VR6)

    I know that some of those would probably smoke a WRx in a straight line. That's why I'm trying to get it down to a driver's race, which I know I could hold my own in. Thanks for any input or theories. Sorry for the long (and probably confusing) post.

    why dont you all just race in the virtual world like GT4 on PS2 or something.

    and me i never worry about those cars not worth the effort, me i prefer a challenge the porsches, m5's, M3's or evo's or STI's hehehee

    The only car worth even winking any eye at is the z3 the rest of them are just useless and not worth the gas. As for the Z3 i think you might have it from a dig but i think, you would get your arse handed to you on a silver platter from a roll. And tell the owner of the optima that he need a real car.V6 or not.

    Check these out for your self.
    Volkswagen New Beetle Compare - Engines and Performance - MSN Autos

    rex01752 was right, only the Z3 and maybe the VR6 have a chance. The Z3 has comparable numbers, the VR6 is a little lighter and only has a few less HP.

    The Kia and Honda 2.7 V6's have 170hp and are in cars that weigh more. no chance.

    The New Beetle 1.8t has 150hp. no chance.

    haha, just to give you a slight insight into the mindset of the optima owner, when I was in high school he used to drag race his mom's Grand caravan in the Putt-Putt parking lot. The guy drives around town like he's mario andretti, and I really have no intention of wasting my time on him. I know I'm a better driver than all of these guys, but its hilarious to theorize what a wrx would do to them.

    My high school math teacher had a Z3, 2.3 4cyl, AT, ssllooww as H3LL. I didn't have the suby back then but it would of been no match. They came with a few different engine options if I'm not mistaken, what does your friends Z3 have under the hood.

    Pretty sure it has a 2.5 liter straight six. I think it cranks out around 190. My initial thought was it would kill me in the curves, but its an amazingly heavy car for its size. I think its curb weight is near 3000 lbs.

    I believe its a modern day form of "slang" or "ebonics" which means; to challenge one or more individuals"

    i.e. "A v6 Kia Optima has been "calling me out"

    how was that?

    I don't think GT4 has a Kia Optima listed.
