    crovette vs 2011 STi

    so my dad bought me a 2011 wrx sti for my 17th birthday, after a month of having the car, he finally asks to drive it, of course i say yes, he gets in and after taking a 45 minute drive, begins looking online at evo's and STi's for himself just because he loved the way the AWD and the way the car feels. then he asks me, he has a 2009 corvette sport, he asks what car is quicker? i told him, straight line, vette would **** on the sti, i dont know much about racing or the vette but i said that around a track the sti would win. so waht do you guys think?

    A word of advise.

    To endear yourself to the other members it would be great if you didn't start every thread with "so my dad bought me a 2011 wrx sti for my 17th birthday"

    Ooh,hang on. That is the throb of a turbocharged flat four engine. A sound which,all over the world,heralds the imminent arrival of a moron - JC.

    Unless there's black ice on the tarmac my money would be on the Chevrolet.

    Tell your dad to sell the STi, buy a Honda Civic for daily driving (or a Honda Jazz, brilliant use of space, sporty, fun, and over 36 mpg with a motor that's still tight from needing break in, very impressive), and buy himself a Corvetter for summer.

    The Corvette would slap the STi silly around anything with Tarmac. It was designed as a sports car, not an economy car with a trick differential and a turbocharger. The same can't be said about the Subaru.

    The newer generation of Corvettes are VERY quick around a track.. the STi would fair better in a straight line (and get **** on as you said). That's assuming the driver of the Corvette has experience on the track. The STi would probably be easier to drive through the corners for a novice, but that's about it.


    Now if you put about $12,000 in suspension upgrades on the STi, and did some weight reduction, it would hold its own through the corners..

    My dad took me to the bank when I was 17...so I could withdrawal 800 dollars from my bank account that I made while working at toys r us so I could go buy an 87 Ford Temp. It was a sweet 2 door tempo....yeah....the OP is lucky I still don't have that tempo...I would take it to the track and show him whats up.

    It doesn't hurt to just ask. See the last line in my signature. That line has been there a while. See what I mean?

    I've gotten past it. I'm sorta glad I wasn't handed things like that.

    Is a "crovette" some sort of black on black "Edgar Allen Poe" limited edition Corvette?

    I begged my parents to pay half of a old Jetta for a first car. They even took me to a few dealers for some test drives... then said no. I rode my bike, bummed rides off friends, and occasionally drove the family minivan until I was 21.
