Finally ran a TA today and got 2 good runs. 1st was a 20 roll and got him by 1 1/2. Second run was a dig and it was about 1 bus. Now I'm not sure what mods the TA had but it nice to flex a little 2.5 muscle. AWD FTW
How far did you go? Or was it just a short burst. I can see the WS6 TA making it up on the top-end...
06 GTO M6 Quicksilver, SLP 455 Bobcat, LS7 Clutch w/ SS line (RPM tune:373rwhp/373rwtq)
07 WRX TR M5 Garnet Red Pearl w/ Straight PPGs and Cusco front LSD (Agile tune:307whp/343wtq)
And your stock?
Your sure he knew you guys were racing?
those mods havent added anything to the car, so you're basically running at stock levels. A WS6 should pull an STi. They already have 25 more horses than you, and less drivetrain loss. He probably didnt know how to drive it.
haha cool, wish my car was fixed so i could race again =[
How Fast Can You Afford To Go?

My friend had one of the last year model Firebirds before they discontinued that whole line (as did Chevy with the Camaro), and it wasn't slow by any means.
I'm not sure what the WS6 stands for, but these are the available engines for those cars in like 2001:
200-hp, 3.8-liter V-6
205-hp, 3.8-liter V-6
310-hp, 5.7-liter V-8
325-hp, 5.7-liter V-8
335-hp, 5.7-liter V-8
Even with a few mods on the base model 3.8, you'd think it would catch up quick to the WRX with none-to-simple power mods.
And I think the 335hp engine could probably take an STi. What do you guys think?
Don't get me wrong, I love my Sube, but there's a reason HIGH PERFORMANCE cars like the BMW M3 and Formula 1 cars are RWD...
