    04' WRX 4eat vs. 07' Forester Sport 2.5 XT 4eat?

    I have the wrx and my dad has the forester, both are stock. I've only had mine a few weeks and he's had his a couple months. We haven't had a chance to race each other yet. But, I like to think I would beat him.

    What do you all think? I don't want to get smoked by the old man...that would leave me no choice but to go stage 2 and I can't afford it yet.

    Since they are both ATs, that pretty much takes the driver element out of it. The FXT will probably beat you from just about anywhere. Dig, roll, whatever. That extra .5 liter does wonders for the slightly heavier FXT.

    I'm thinking, It will be pretty close ... We dyno'd stock fxt at 206whp and 218tq. FXT FTW. I had auto 03wrx and auto 04 fxt... but both were never stock for long... and 03wrx is RWD. Never had a chance to ran em.

    FXT FTW (or atleast in this race).

    I was afraid the extra .5 liter would do me in. However, I don't think he will push as hard as I will so maybe I can still get him.

    right... I now have a wrx 5sp swap in my forester... Different Gear ratio. FXT ran 13.3 with snow tires at the track. No traction... this is with stage 2 and 04wrx 5sp tranny.
