    WRX vs GTI?

    I know this guy and he has a mkiv GTi (20th aniv edition) and everytime I see him, he talks **** saying how he'd beat me easily. As far as I know, he has a chip and exhaust. He says he's pushin like 220 crank hp and like 200whp.

    I have a 02 wrx wagon with up pipe, dp and axel back. Stock wrx's are at 227hp , but i know hp doesn't always win races. I'm pretty sure I'll win, but i wanted your opinion also. Should I wait and get a XPT stage2 reflash? I'm assuming once im stage2, i should be able to take him from whatever scenario. Correct? Any input appreciated.

    He will beat you from a higher speed roll, either race him from a stop, or race him from a low speed roll.

    With your current setup you could win from a dig if you know how to drive... and you will lose from a roll.

    With XPT stage2 will you destroy him.

    Ya. I'm waiting for my tactrix cable to ship in. Once I'm stage 2 I'm pretty confident I can take him from anywhere.

    As everyone said you will beat him off the line...VW's have trouble getting power to the ground....front wheel drive with no LSD = lots of wheel spin.

    But I hear the Fast is only compatible with the mkV GTI.
