    my auto wrx vs. new z28

    ok ok, i know racing from a roll is like masturbation, as good as it is, its not real sex. but anyhow, i raced a z28 from a roll. i was at about 60... well 59mph, cuz thats when my auto wrx shifts to second if i mash the gas fast. if im at 61 or above, it shifts to third and the acceleration sucks. next to me was a white z28, and i hear him rev his engine, so once he revved, i revved back and it was on. once i notice him floor it, i floored it to, it shifted to second and i pull about a car on him, if not a bit more all the way up to 100 mph when i see him still there right behind me, not gaining or loosing ground. i felt my car hit fourth gear, and i just let off. anyhow, the guy just passed me really fast and didnt even slow down or anything, just kept on going.

    one for the automatic wrx, zero for the z28(probably an automatic, not sure though).

    It probably was an auto (they have crappier gearing). I had an '00 Z28 6-speed and it was a beast from a roll. I could drop to 2nd and usually get the tires to light a bit and then chirp 3rd and kick the tail out slightly. Mine was barely modded... just a Borla catback and also a lid/K&N filter... I miss that thing. I gotta upgrade the WRX soon... its too slow for my tastes at the moment.

    Not this again. I've seen just as many stock LS1 F-bodies run 14.0 @ 101 as I have run 13.5 @ 105 or quicker. Not all of them are equal.

    I believe it might have been a Z28 auto. A few f-body guys that rode in my Z28 called it a "freak" too. Mine was extremely fast compared to some others stock for stock. I have seen stock fbodies run low 14's however most run mid-low 13's-ish. GM high tech performance magazine ran a stock LS1 SS 12.9 in the 1/4...

    I hear you. I miss my Z28 as well. Took a ride as well as got to drive my friend's new '03 Cobra last night. What a power rush! That thing is a beast! The acceleration was almost linear even up to 125 mph. It had power in all gears, including 6th! My stock REX felt so slow after driving that car.

    Z28 have a lot of top end, I doubt you can run away from it from a roll. Not to mention wrx is not famous for roll on races.

    well, it was kinda from 60 to just over 100mph. i took the edge on it by about a car, if not a bit more, but right when my car hit 4th gear, i knew i had to let off, cuz i was going to be reeled in and annihilated. 4th gear feels sooo weak on my car. anyhow, josh, who is on here was in another wrx behind me. he can verify my race.

    after i did the boostmonkey mod, my car increased in performance dramatically. this is why zola84 loves to mess around with me. whenever im about to race someone, he always asks if ive "fed my monkeys"!
