    Orly?

    Last month this guy in a '07 WRX rolled all hard next to me...he was all pulling bong hits and revving at the same time!

    I was like, "crap, the dreaded oh theven!"

    He looked at me with a wink and a smile.

    I felt weird.

    My wife asked me what was happening. I said, "STOP! Look baby, this is serious. 2.0 verzus the mad money 2.5. Just stop even ACKNOWLEDGING MY EXISTENCE WOMAN!"

    She went, "but baby, you exist...you are a person.. to me: "NO I'M NOT! I'm not worthy!" So homie took a giant chew off his slim jim and rumbled off into the distance.

    I pointed, "look baby, he's the new fast, and don't play."

    I'm going to give you a little advice. There's a force in the universe that makes things happen. And all you have to do is get in touch with it, stop thinking, let things happen, and be the ball.

    A well modded Stage 2 can beat an sti, but you would have to be a good driver.

    Im wondering as to the result of a race between a stage 2 02' wrx and a stock STI in a drag oriented style race.

    Thank you
    If your a good driver with stg2 then you should be able to beat an STi. I've beaten stock STi's with my stg2. hopefully i'll be able to meet up with a really good STi driver someday.

    I think my stage II wrx has a better chance of keeping up with an sti from a roll which i know sounds odd, but my trap speed was nearly 101mph and that is what your average STI will trap at, with the weak trans in my wrx the sti has a great advantage in the launching because they don't have to worry about blowing their tranny as much, but either way it comes down to the driver, im sure a roll race from 70-120mph the sti will win every time, but if you are doing a 20-80 roll race i think it would be close, at least from the numbers my car has put down and the numbers i have seen the average stock sti run at the track i go to, they are very close, the biggest difference is my 1.8 60-foot isn't as good as the 1.7 60-foot times that i see some of the good drivers pull in stock STIs.

    I've raced both from a dig and roll. If you havent ridden a stock STi you will notice its torque and power keeps going up till 6k and just dies off. As to a stg2 wrx you will feel the power go all the way to redline. Well as for me it does. I've also raced a Stg2 STi and it makes that car a whole lot different. It put the same amount of distance like 2-3 cars on me just as the same as i put on a stock STi.

    All in all I think a STG2 WRX+a good driver can keep up with an STi and/or beat it. You just have to go try it and see what happens.

    well i dunno because when my sti was stock i raced (as posted above) against a stg 2 06 wrx. it pulled initially thanks to earlier spool but i passed him at top of 3rd and 4th gear was going to get ugly. it was from a 20 roll.

    In the end, it could either way.... but for the most part, I would put my money on a stock sti vs OTS stage2 wrx.

    OTS stage2 (my car) vs. friends stock STi allowed him to win each time we ran.

    Once I got a new uppipe on there and got a protune (237whp) I can pull him in the lower gears... However he still gets me uptop once speeds get going.

    I never raced an STI yet, but my stage 2 also pulls like he*@. I have a 02 also. Lots of people have told me that they have beat STI's with stage 2 on 02 and 03 models. I agree.

    The fuel delivery and maping on a stage 2 are better, than a stock STI. Simply put...The STI might have higher HP, but it drops after hiting the high point. Whereas the stage 2 is more of a gradual increase in HP throughout the power band. The fuel/timing is mapped so that the Turbo has a better output and power curve delivery. That's my only reason why many stage 2 WRX are betting STI.

    Otherwise, there would not be ANY stories of stage 2 WRX beating STI.

    Gotta love the number of WRX owners who make it their sole purpose in life to beat a stock STi in a straight-line.

    Not that this thread has gone in that direction, it just got me thinkin' with all the varied responses. Isn't there more to the STi than it's straight-line performance?

    '07+ STi's are teh f4st4rrrr...

    I don't think even a 2.5L WRX @ Stage 2 could beat an '07+ STi, probably would be neck and neck with an awesome driver in the WRX, if anything.

    an awesome driver in a Stage 2 any year wrx will beat your typical driver in an STI. Sure i have read that some people broke into the 12s in a stock STI, but if you go to the track often you will see most of them running mid to lower 13s, and the people that tend to go to the track are better drivers then your average person on the street. You will see your average stage 2 wrx running mid to upper 13s at the track, so yes the sti is a few ticks quicker with equal drivers, but i have also seen my fair share of STIs running 14s, and its very common and i have also seen my fair share of stage 2 wrxs running low 13s so while the sti still has an advantage in a situation with two identical drivers, that situation rarely occurs and if the wrx driver is better then the sti driver, the wrx could EASILY win, we are talking a few tenths of a second here with equal drivers, and 1-2mph advantage to the sti, thats next to nothing when we have humans and not robots driving.
