    Wrx (Stage IV) Vs. 03 Cobra (Stock)

    I was going down the freeway and a Dark blue / Purple, Cobra pulled up next to me.. Three people were in the Cobra and I had a passenger with me + my Huge JL W7 box in the trunk (90-100 lb.)
    Anyways... He gets next to me and we knew it was on. We were at 60mph and punched it. I Was creeping away slowly until I hit 4th... He caught up and started to pass me.. Then when I hit 5k In 4th I started to walked away from him again. At the end I had about 1 to 1-1/2 cars on him! I was totally shocked! I though I was gonna get owned on the Hwy. After the race he gave me the thumbs up and he told me to follow him.. We got off the freeway and started talking. He never even heard of a WRX. So he wanted to line it up from a dead stop!!! He didnít even know I have AWD!!! . Launched at 4,500 K and smoked him so bad he shut his car down. I had about 7 cars just through 2nd gear!

    My brother-in-law has a cobra as well, but he has the chip and the pulley like "03cobra". I only drove his cobra after he put his mods on so I donít know how a stock cobra feels. My brother-in-law's Supercharger is so loud! The guy I raced was noticeable but nothing close to my bro's!

    I can't wait to Get My TurboXS FMIC installed!!!

    MIKE read this

    Ha....this is exactly what I have been trying to tell my buddy Mike aka 03Cobra....that a stage IV car can hang......if you took that guy by 7 cars from a stop....even with him stock, I bet you could hang with my buddy's modded one (at least make it competitive)..........I've been trying to get someone in NOVA to "step up to the challenge".....who cares who wins at least then Mike will see that a stage IV car is not a joke. .....looks like you have just gone a long way at proving my case

    Not saying you are BSing or anything but I thought even a stock 03 Cobra traps higher than a Stage4 WRX so wouldnt it walk away from a WRX on a highway run? I knew you would take him from the stop but 7 cars? Damn. Good job.

    Wow...my favorite part of the story is that he was graceful enough to want to talk to you after he lost. I like people like that

    I raced an '03 Cobra at the local dragstrip tonight.

    Please keep in mind cars run .3-.5 and 2-3mph slower than they do at most other sea-level tracks here:

    Me:
    13.402 @ 99.29mph (1.76 60')

    '03 Cobra:
    13.229 @ 107.61 mph (2.113 60')

    I cut a light on him (.532 to his .755) so he only ended up beating me by a slim margin. Let me tell you though - I SMOKED him to 1/2 track but he reeled me in like a small fish on the top end and blew right by me.

    Those Cobras are fast - and that one was BONE stock (paper plates and all).

    Wow.

    I still beat him on the first half of the track though. He was in disbelief. <-- My evening's saving grace.

    Well you all most got him. To bad you weren't racing on an 1/8 mile track.

    I am truely amazed by your 1/4 mile time and mph. With that great 1.76, 60' time you still only ran 13.4 @ 99 mph.

    I ran 13.3 @ 99 mph with Turboxs stage 2 - thats also here in S. Florida.

    That track you race on has to be going up hill and have a couple turns in it.

    Going OT for a second, what gear do you get to on the drag strip...is 3rd the highest? I know I should know this, but I've never been to the strip yet.
