I know mine is

    Sorry I cannot link it as I am a newbie still and am walking out the door. I'll link it after I get 3 new posts.

    My car has Intake headers and exhaust. His car is bone stock. Just bought it that day. There will be a rematch soon.
    and as for times I only know my 1/8 mile. I ran an 8.71@80mph on street tires. Not sure what a full launch out of you guys is but I'm sure it is good. Anyways enjoy the vid guys and there will be updated vids soon.

    I guess your friend isn't a believer in breaking in a new car...
    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)

    I guess the 09 owner is a newbie cuz my 02 isn't too far behind your mildly modded V8 in the 1/8 mile. I like seeing guys like you on the highway, you think that cuz you have a V8 you will own whatever pulls up next to you... nice try... BTW
    Turbo was invented to give cars with V8 a head start
    VF-43 Bugeye: OPEN SOURCE tune... 121xxx miles

    13.1@105... Lazy launch 1.9 60'

    Turbos weren't invented with any automotive purpose in mind.

    They were invented to negate air pressure losses experienced by piston combustion engines at altitude.

    This attitude gives us in the tuner world a bad rap.

    At the drag strip there is a lot of camaraderie between all different cars... I had a corvette owner that hadn't ever dragged before come up to me, and ask me how the hell our little 4 cylinders were getting such amazing times compared to his 50k dollar car. At the same time, I conversed with a lot of mustang, camaro, corvette, Evo, STi, etc owners. It's great to learn about other technologies, and other platforms.

    Well said. It doesn't make sense to feel animosity towards another car because of the number of cylinders it has.

    I didn't mean to stir up any kind of retaliation from you. I was merely showing you that the new WRX is a force to be reckoned with. A stock car doing that good against a Mustang GT is very good. and with a few basic bolt ons the roles will be reversed. I find that very impressive. I think another reason I pulled was because I don't lose alot of power between gears. A turbo does. I can't wait until the next time me and him get together. Even though I'll lose.

    and for your info the 09 driver is not a newbie nor am I. I drove my friend bone stock Bug eye at the strip and got a 8.9 out of it o I know there is potential there. Don't turn this into an import vs domestic war. Imports win by default as you all have the Supra.

    That's what I figured.

    I live in a town where every other kids parents have bought them an import and they think because its lightly modded it's quick and go around revving on everything from accords to vipers. I also have a unicorn.

    I've had run-ins with several mustangs over the 5 year course of owning my car. I also have a handful of friends with mustangs as well.

    My car = 2002 WRX, Stage2 + protune @ 17psi

    Here's what I've gathered thus far in my experience:

    - My buddies 96 GT @ stock = Not even worth racing.

    - Same car but now with header, full exhaust, intake = Not even close. He sorta kept up from a roll but once my 3rd gear was fully spooled I just kept putting distance on him.

    - 2002 GT stock = Not even close from a stand-still, was able to put about 3 cars on him from a roll of 30-90

    - Same 2002 GT with exhaust bolt ons and cam = Pretty close from a dig. I don't really like launching my car hard so he was right with me from the start and I had a nose on him up to top of 3rd gear. If we had hit 4th I think he would taken the advantage. From a roll he took me by a couple cars. I think at the track he was trapping 106 or so with those mods.

    - Mach 1 = took me from a roll. I think I could have had him from a dig but I didn't wanna have to launch at 4k.
    He later upgraded to a full bolt-on set and I didn't want to bother. He was running with stock terminators so I didn't see the point.

    - Terminator with pulley and exhaust work = This was just for fun. My buddy got some new mods for his car and we decided to mess around. It was brutal. I felt like my car was standing still.
    He eventually upgraded to a KB and now runs with Vipers
    Just call me Clark Kent

    Man my friend with a 09 GT would love this thread. He knows I love wrx's and he love Evo's but he says noway a 04 rex with stg2 mods can beat his stock auto gt. But what evere his car looks pretty good,sounds good and chicks seem to love his car more than anything so he should be happy.

    But, I really hope I can beat his stang oneday, just to see his face.

    I love Cobras too, those things are just brutal and i love the way how they just hit 150mph without even trying hard.
