    Here's a dumb ass question...

    Why would someone go to a 1/8 mile track if he could go to a 1/4 mile one? He said she said, post a timeslip please.

    I have no idea why he was at a 1/8th mile drag unless he lived right by it, but why would any of us have a time slip?

    You know what I mean... where's his timeslip? I'm pretty sure everyone would wanna see one if its a new car with uncertain times as of yet and the person is claiming these nice numbers.

    He cant give out a time slip, hes a memeber of the press. There is a press embargo untill may 1st, the guy cant stop people from taking pictures of the car and talking about what they saw but he cant just post a time slip and expect subaru to let him get away with it. Sti's have had many passes at drag stips but there are no time slips posted for a reason.

    I think I heard the announcer say "Reaction Time 1.9" ??? Was he talkin about the SRT? I've never actually drag raced at a track before so I don't know all about the terms and stuff...

    You cant really hear what car he is talking about. FYI reaction time is the time it take your car to leave the staging lights after the light turns green.

    And in the first post... "worked out the numbers"... ??? So you mean it didn't pull a 13.6? Squash all that calculation bull****, get some real track times.

    Timeslip is sure enough the only real proof, but 13.0 flat seems pretty believeable(sp?).

    If we're talking about what the car is capable of, I dont think there's any reason to doubt it couldn't run a 13 or maybe lower. I just think the trap speed could be higher.

    13.6 is a good time. in a hand of a person with more time in the car, i see no reason it wont run at least a low 13 sec pass if not faster.

    btw, those times are very close to what evos are running currently stock.

    Once again, i dunno if this is WTLW...but here...

    The official STi page from Subaru. Guys, this car is seriously well done. The interior has some subtle touches that make you know its the STi. Not to mention DCCD, manually controlled intercooler waterspray, 6 speed close ratio short throw shifting tranny...so many toys in one car...sheesh the last time I felt so awe inspired by a car was when the new M3's were released.

    Bravo Subaru. Bravo. Way to kick some ass.
