    there is a great video of this race on youtube but with an 06 sti instead of the wrx. the 09 wrx would have close to the same performance though. The speed3 has an intake, the 350z has exhaust and the sti is stock.

    This is ridiculous...

    Any of the cars could win.. all depends on the crapshoot known as "The Driver Mod"

    Same skilled driver? 100% Stock? The 09WRX will win. But dear lord.. what happened to this forum.. it's all magazine racing now!!!!

    no those arent turbo'd, only certain hatches, you'll notice the speed 3 it looks more agressive, although the new one looks like a f&ggot wrx lol

    They suck off the launch but really are incredibly similar to the srt-4 after they take off

    i dont care what some video shows. There are plenty of videos of g35's and Z's beating sti's from a roll. And lets get it straight, although the 09 wrx is quick, please dont compare it to an 06 sti, sti>wrx. And i know for a fact that speed3 vs 09 wrx scenario from a roll, the speed3 will win. that by no means its a better or faster car, it just means it has better top end than a wrx. from a stop or even a first gear roll, the wrx would win. or in rain or snow or dirt

    Um....the 09 WRX is on par with some of the earlier STI's.

    Prior to 09 a MS3 would destroy in WRX in any race that wasnt in snow, mud, rain, or up to 30MPH.

    Higher slolam speed, lower 1/4 mile speed, and more G's on a skid pad. That equals better performance....not a youtube race.

    Which car are you referring to with the Higher slolam speed and all that?

    My friend with a stock speed 3 on stock tires trapped 101. That's pretty much what the 09 wrx's trap. Considering the fact that halfway through the 1/4 mile the speed 3 has no traction and still traps a 101, is pretty impressive. That also tells me that it has quicker pickup than the 09 wrx, not to mention a intake on a ms3 dynoed and extra 23 whp.

    And i will never consider the 09 wrx on par with a 06 sti. Completely different cars. The 09 has 1 less shift to get to quartermile than the STi i believe. With like 35 more hp than the 09 wrx, the 06 sti would pull from a higher roll. But since street racing is illegal and we cant talk about it on this thread, it makes no difference. so you win :-)
