    could a WRX stay same pace as a packed STI?

    say the STI had 4 full grown adults in it, which would be about 600 pounds and has luggage and a subwoofer in the back making it up to 700 extra pounds in the STI. now would you think a WRX stay right next to it like this the whole way?

    Hard to say. Why anyone would race like that is beyond me. Figure out the hp/tq to weight ratio and I guess you'd get a somewhat close idea.

    I think it would be close - 100 lbs of weight is supposedly equal to -10hp.

    Hmmm....

    I would say that with 600lbs of people, system, and luggage a wrx would have a good chance from a dig. From a roll though, I would still give it to the STI.

    100lbs equates to a good tenth of a second off the 1/4 mile... so a stock STi does what? 13.3? add 7/10th's to it and you got a 14 sec flat, which an 06 WRX can do faster.

    There are more issues at hand then just tenths of a second of a 1/4mile. The better breathing STi turbo, the superior STi gearing, etc.. will all play a roll.

    Why are you asking this question, it is pretty random?
