    WRX vs S2000

    My friend has a S2K and wants to race me. All I know is he has an exhaust. I have a '02 WRX wagon with TBE. Who do you think will win? Sorry if this is a newb question, but I did a search and didn't get much info. TIA

    From a dig with a good launch you should edge him up to 60, maybe 70mph but from a roll my money is still on the S2000
    My friends stock pulls pretty good on me above 70, not like a total rape but its a good pull. Both cars stock

    stock for stock it would be a good race, i owned an 05 S2000 and now own and 06 TR. The S2000 is not a drag car by any means. Take it to the track and have fun

    thanks for your replies guys. Seems like it should be a close race from a dig.

    I have another quick question, my other friend has a 2006 RSX Type-S with CAI and race headers, I'm guessing I should be able to take from a dig also, but im not sure if from a roll. No do you guys think? TIA again

    from a stop with a good launch you should have him unless you keep racing way up there. CAI sint gonna do squat and im not quite sure what he means by race headers...either open exhaust headers or a catless exhaust would be my guess. Either way, he isnt gonna get much from it.

    race him from a stop to 60 or 80 and I give the edge to you. Much faster and his top end will own you.

    From a dig you should have him until about 60mph or so where he will start to pull even and pull you. From a roll, he will take you pretty well.

    From a dig you should have it easily. From a roll, it would be close, but he will likely pull you. This car responds rather well to bolt on's and a 4-1 race header is one of them. That alone has them trapping 97/98mph.

    Thanks for the replies. Honda/Acura rely on their vtec as much as we rely on our turbo huh.

    For the most part. The high compression engines are made to only make significant power in the upper rpm ranges when vtec engages.

    The only mods that matter on an S2000 are gears or some form of forced induction. Otherwise, nothing else really makes a difference. That car is maxed N/A from the factory.

    And it's much nicer than a WRX!

    Never raced an S2000 but it seems like what everyone is staying is on the money. On paper it looks like they would pull you over 60mph. On the other hand, I raced an RSX-S in my '06 WRX and he didn't come past me till ~110mph and I let off at 100mph. My guess is they start pulling rather hard around ~80mph. A 60mph roll would have been interesting but the kid just kept going insanely fast down the freeway and I wasn't about to try and catch him.
