    STi should take it regardless.

    WRX will lose regardless.

    WRX w/ Stage2 should be a good race from a dig, but will still likely lose from a roll.

    IS350 runs very consistant mid-high 13's @ 103/104mph.

    My brother recently bought a new camry with the same 3.5 liter motor as the IS 350. The Camry is rated at 270ish hp so according to numbers it has 30 hp less than the IS350. My stage 2 wagon vs the camry from a 55-60 mph roll was pretty close. I started off in 3rd gear and he was in drive and didn't have it down in a lower gear. Anyways once his car finally downshifted enough he pretty much stayed about 2 car lenghts behind me, ever so slowly falling back. I let off about 105 or so with him maybe 3-4 cars behind me. My car had a bit of an exhaust leak at the time and wasn't boosting as quick or as much as it should have been so I'd expect a strong running stage 2 to be a good run against an IS 350 until you hit 4th gear.

    I have a stage 2 STI and got into it with one a few weeks back, just from a light. We both went off slow, and then about 10-15mph both got on it almost the same time. Up to about 70 I had him pretty good, about 3 cars and pulling away. I got on it a little bit earlier than he did, less than half a sec I'd say
