I also have an extensive racing background for both 2 and 4 wheel circuts.. I dont toot my horn either.. so you can excuse my ignorance if you like, but my "ignorance" as you state it is not knowing you as a person, I dont need to know you or how you drive to know that if you take 2 professional drivers one in your car and the other in the Lambo, you will get walked.. thats all i am saying..

    you have a nice car with a good setup, i am not comparing my vf34 to yours but i know how my car handles against the others, In fact your setup vs my setup would obviously be much closer than either of ours vs a lambo..

    That is the problem with this whole WRX vs the world. the majority of the threads are about car vs the other driver..

    Hell i beat an Enzo yesterday, why because the driver didnt get on it, see my point, And from what your stating then, you beat the lambo because of the driver.. just as you would beat a yugo.. there is no differance. Now compare both cars.... there is your differance. All of these "street races" are for sh!t, most of the drivers are squids. But bring it to Road Alanta and lets see how that same race would be on a real circut track.

    You have a good setup but just be realistic. think logically, how do you expect us to believe you are pulling on a Gallardo? and pulling on it means you are pulling away from it when you both started from and even stance and you were walking away.. ( both drivers being hard on it, and have the driving ability to handle them both.)

    I just have reached my limit of hearing about these amazing races where someone beats a car that by all logic it can't be defined. So as i said you beat the driver of that car, you didnt beat the car.

    enash99 maybe they should make a "WRX Numbers vs the World Numbers" for ya. But in the real world some people just suck at driving. Every single race in here is driver vs driver no matter how close the race or cars.

    I agree pulling on a lambo does not mean the WRX is faster then a lambo. Switch drivers and the lambo wins. Does that mean the OP didn't beat a lambo? No he did.. He just beat a lambo with a crappy driver. Now if he came here saying "my WRX is faster then every lambo regardless of the driver" then you can rip into him.

    Maybe in the future all cars will drive themselfs and we can truly see which cars are faster and enash99 will be happy. Until that day any and every race is nothing more then a drivers race.

    There is a 's' after all those cars he listed, so we assume he pulled on more than one lambo, modded Evo, STi...etc. How likely will he pull on more than one lambo with 275whp?

    anyone else amazed and pleasantly surprised or is it just me? me, i've never made ridiculous amounts of power... 275whp was the highest i've put down on the dyno, yet an STi with 300whp wont have a chance. what makes the WRX have such an edge? or am I alone here?
    I agree with enash...im puttin up the BS flag on your original post AND your defense.

    this statement implies that it is your CAR that is winning these races, not your driving skill or your extensive racing experience and aftermarket part connections.

    again---you are saying its your car. At no point do you say 'wow look how good of a driver I am' . Get off your high horse. Driving on a two lane road next to a Lambo and being in front of him is not indicative of pulling on him.

    and implying that a person who can afford a Lambo can't be that good of a driver...probably the most ignorant and prejudice statement on this whole thread--- obviously they can't be as good of a driver as you if they are richer than you

    What if that's on a low reading dyno? That could be a mid 12 second car up against a mid-low 12 second car with a semi-****ty driver. FWIW lotsofnos on this board ran a 12.1 on a 280 whp tune and I'm sure if he had more seat time it would have clocked a high 11 second pass. He was still getting used to the 6MT at that point.

    I guess I can believe it. After all when you stop racing dyno sheets, magazine numbers, and internet times it's amazing what can happen.

    well its hard to pick out details on this cause no hard data was given just ive beaten all these cars. which is great but most likly you beat the driver of the car. which is still good. but even if the car was 330whp it still isnt hangin with lambos or lightly modded evos. i freakin saw one in modified mag (sorry for the reference) with the cai, exhaust, cams and a tune made 396whp and 400wtq at 28psi on the stock turbo thats crazy. but i am with your id rather know i drove my car faster then people with more hp then justcutting good times. basicly in the end take it to the track get a slip and prove ur car is fast.


    oh and every neon can beat the shuttle we just let it win once in awhile to let if save face

    Still hung up on whp numbers huh, if lotsofnos was at 330whp he'd have clicked off a mid 11 second pass which would be plenty enough to drag a galardo's ass for a quarter mile and still be pulling on it.

    AFAIK if you beat the driver you still beat the car. Unless you're on clubwrx in which case you have to beat the best time of that car that someone can find on the internet. People suck at driving, did you beat the driver yep. Did you beat the car, yep. Will you beat it in every possible scenario, probably not. I know it's hard to believe that not all cars you're going to come across on the street will run the advertised track #'s seen in a magazine or on the internet, but it happens. I've seen new z06's cutting 13's, I've seen LS1 SS's cut 17's. . Hell I've seen my modified evo cut a 19


    Evo's are easy to extract power out of, I didn't see the article in modified as I don't read it but I'm sure that it was tuned to its limits on race gas.
