    2002 WRX (mine) VS. 2000 Camaro Z28

    Last night Iws cruising around town before a movie and I noticed a Camaro next to me. He started pulling back and forth, (automatic tranny), and eventually we had some room so we played around for a while. Once on the outskirts of town we used stoplights and the honk three times to do some official races. I think he had an auto because it looked like he was powerbraking. He would always get the jump, and be one to two car lenghts ahead until third gear, where he pulled away farther. Could he always get the jump because it is an automatic, or can i just not launch? It was a 2000 model, and I am stage 2 with cobb accessport. He said it was stock, but it would just roar

    --WE WERE NOT WEAVING IN AND OUT OF TRAFFIC OR CUTTING PEOPLE OFF. NO ONE WAS IN SIGHT--

    It's a Z28 Camaro... Can't expect miracles in a straight line. They are muscle cars. Your stage 2 is not a muscle car.

    I'd say your launch could be better, but it is probably best left crappy anyhow for sake of your cars wellness.

    EDIT: Also, if you had an automatic limited WRX, you'd be able to smoke anything, especially after it was the fastest in the world. Even an STi.

    I didnt know they were that fast, but I agree and thank you for your reminder of my car's wellness. Launching scares me and i RARELY RARELY RARELY RARELY do it just for that reason. I was just puzzled. Even now I regret it because i took WAY too long to let the clutch out. P.S. when you say limited what do you mean

    You might be able to take him off the line if you get your launch perfect, but your not going to be able to out run him... he has a ls1 350 under his hood... putting out 305hp and about 350lbs of torque... they say that they are underated from the factory too... you'd have to do at least a turbo swap to run with him in mir stock form...

    Yeah, but is it true that you can't do burnouts and drift it?

    Rofl. I just read that thread. This is becoming a meme.

    "If you can't drift and do burnouts then what is an STI for?"

    Camaro's are fast man, don't mess with em on a straight stretch. I had my first beatdown handed to me by an 02 T/A ws6 with bolt ons while I was still just stock with a CBE... holy shjt was that a mistake He let me get the jump and proceeded to quickly catch and pass me. Id love to see him now though, would prolly be ALOT closer if not a win for the wrx. From a dead stop with at least a 16g and a perfect 4.5k rpm launch youll stomp em. Thats if hes stock, a cammed one will still lay the smack down on you. Our cars aren't made for dragging, only the mighty 07 wrx limited 4eat was built for that. Lets see if he could keep up with you around a few orange cones though, I dont think so.

    My dad had a 98 camaro ss for like 5 months(average for him) with a cam and everybolt on thinkable with a tuner and it was scary fast from 40-100 and it just KEPT on going after 100. Very fast for what they are, a 5.7L beast He just sold the 69 chevelle ss I posted a link to and now he's looking for a procharged or turbo'd ls1 to play with, or a 10'CTS-V Caddy.

    I dont think anyone will soon forget FastASsWrX or his brilliant posts, but it was super fun when he was able to reply lol. I would post as much as I could to add a little fuel to his fire/rant. Sadly hes gone though

    Yeah my old z28 ran a 13.2 @ 104 with a ****ty launch at about 4500ft elevation at rmr... it was a monster... a cts-v would be awesome, but id rather have a zo6 vette instead...

    Fastasswrx was like a pinata filled with stupid things to say... the more you whack him the more he dumbfounded everyone... classic entertainment... they should unban him and give him his own adult thread sticky so we can all flame him to a crisp... it was funny when he first started everyone was giving him so much **** that he said "you guys broke my spirit and I'm going to leave the forum"...lol

    F-body's can be very quick. They are a great platform to make a lot of power with just a few $$$ (relatively speaking).

    I must of missed the Fastasswrx posts... I'll have to check them out

    Yes they are... they are rockets straight out of the production line add some bolt ons and suspention upgrades and you pretty much have a 4 seater vette...

    Search for his username and read through his posts and threads... its a really good way to get a good laugh... it will even brighten your day if your feeling down too...

    V8 this and V8 that... Just like a Subaru, they're not fast till there's money put into them. If they're fast & stock it's because they were expensive to begin with. If they're modded & fast, somebody put the money into it.

    Ya gotta pay to play, and that rule isn't confined to any single type of vehicle. The beauty of this is it gives us the choice of which vehicle we want to go fast in. Obviously something like an 02 WRX will need more mods than an 09 WRX would to be equally quick, but they guy with the 09 spent more to start there. Same goes in the v8 world -- 13.9 @ 102 isn't any quicker than a modern import runs from the factory. There are v8 people happy with an intake and a handheld programmer, and there heads/cam/blower cars on the other end of the spectrum.

    This type of thread always turns into a "Yeah, but bolt on so-and-so and then..." type of tennis match. That's the whole point - it all depends on what each car has as to who's quicker. Nobody wins by default.
