    I raced a gt back when I was stock. From 0-60 it's a close race. if you drive right I think you might be able to keep a bumper ahead of him until 60. If it goes much past 60 he'll get you.

    From a roll, forget about it. He'll beat you.

    With my current setup (up-pipe, down-pipe, mid-pipe, and UTEC) I raced a stage 1 roush 'stang. For all intents and purposes it's pretty much just a stock GT. I beat him pretty good both from a 10 MPH roll and from a light.

    I believe they are pretty close, but I doubt they could take a wrx from a STOP.

    Depends what you call mildly modded. Below 3rd gear both cars ar pretty equall. In the quarter a gt driven to perfection will beat a wrx driven perfectly, but not by much.

    i raced one last night. it definitely had exhaust/headers, maybe a cam based on the WOT sound of the car. SHE beat me both from a roll and after 60 mph when we raced from the line. does the rex have a flat 2nd gear above 5500 rpm?

    The rex has a flat everything after 5500 rpm, at least with the stock turbo

    it's a drivers race in the 1/4, maybe the GT by 0.1 sec advantage

    it's all wrx in the 1/8th as i consistantly beat a bud's GT all the time by over half a second when we were both stock

    throw money into each car and the WRX will win dollar for dollar

    Umm at a certain point the 2.0l runs out without extensive engine modifications that cost big bucks, where as the v8 still has room for more. The wrx is cheaper for light mods to say get into the 12's but to run 10's its cheaper in a mustang.

    yeah, thats true

    while it is easier/cheaper to up the boost or swap a turbo for another one that bolts right up than to have a supercharger or turbocharger kit installed on an originally N/A engine... putting that FI on an N/A engine that can already compete with our turbos will put it in a whole other level, but is expensive

    What is up with that ID picture with the white girl and the big ass! Damn are they doing ass transplant too! I have never even imagined a white girl could ever have an ass like that , it looks perfect! She's latino isn't she ? DAMN!!!!!
    I raced a GT a couple days ago. It was from a roll against some blond chick. That thing has fast but I still pulled on her from behind (no pun intended ) She looked pissed that every time she saw me in the mirror I was right there on her bumper. It was at least an 02 GT. It was hard to pull on her though, and I only did so at the end of each gear till he stopped at about 85mph. Damn what an ass! DAMN!!!!!

    The pic in the avatar is a little decieving. She does have a big ass but what you cant see in the small pic is you are also seeing the bottom of her right ass cheek which makes it look like she has a gigantic ass. In the hi rez pic you can see the definition between the 2 cheeks.

    And as for the mustang, why are you mad she stopped at 85? Thats just about where you want mustang drivers to stop You dont want them to find out what 4th gear in a wrx is like do you?

    I don't know. Bone stock there are a boatload of GTs running
    14 flat. There are some WRX running that bone stock, but not the majority (from at least what I've seen). I think it takes more skill to get decent times out of the rex in the 1/4 mile.

    What year? What mods? Are we talking gears and drag radials or what?

    At higher speeds a GT does have more speed but in a 1/4 mile race its up to the drivers. Its real close.

    I watched a bone stock GT race a bone stock WRX at the track. They were friends and lined up 3 times in a row. I got a big kick out of watching them. The WRX won all 3 races by a hair. It was a drivers race. The WRX got a big jump off the line (as expected) and the GT was reeling him in right at the finish line (as expected). Very very close race.

    I was very proud of the guy in the stock WRX. He didn't let us down.

    oh i was assuming gt's run like 14.3-14.5ish, which is what i usually see, i guess im just there with the sucky drivers

    i also usually see stock wrx's doing the same thing, 14.3-14.6ish
