Gator I was not aiming my post at you or anyone in particular. I just think that drag racing from a roll is silly. Its an invention of the streets, a form of handicap racing. Why not just say give me a 3 car headstart? Or don't leave the start line till I am x amount of time or carlengths ahead of you. Simply put its an admission that you are driving a car that is a slug off the line. Again I am not aiming this at you or your car. But look at what it is for what it is. Our cars have AWD that makes much more traction While FWD simply sux for traction. Would any prostock racer ask his oponent to remove his drag slicks and run OE tires to make it a fair race? The WRX is not a drag car but it can do it well but it does most things well in almost any driving conditions you will ever encounter thats why I own one. If I had a better Job I might own a Pontiac T/A (my first car was a 73 Gran Prix SJ)or an 03 cobra. 2 cars that drag race very well. It can be hard to build a car that does everything VERY well but I think my WRX comes closer than anything else that I can afford. I have not raced a GTP but I have raced a Montecarlo SS. I won by more than a car length shut off around 70ish under the next light. I am completely stock except for KDWS tires. I am no drag racer. I think i suck at lauching this thing. Have you heard that Dodge has a new RWD Hemi Charger in the works for 04? Look out you 03 Cobra Drivers! Similar HP but NA! Read it on C&D or MT. No more intrepid. This is the time to own a car and not an SUV!
