    STi footage! vs. SRT-4 no less!

    I dunno if this is WTLW, but hey, its worth posting again even if it was already posted. Found it on NASIOC...2004 Subaru WRX STi vs. 2003 Dodge Neon SRT-4:

    http://www.redfaktor.com/dump/MOV03356.MPG

    Some guys worked out the numbers. With a bogged launch the damn thing would do about a 13.6. Best run would've equalled to a 13.1 @ 103 mph. WOW. And who said this thing wouldn't have topend.

    103mph is great top end? Compared to what, a WRX? Certainly not compared to an SRT-4 that's capable of 102mph.

    I'm sorry, but if the car ran a 13.1 at 108mph, I would say that's great topend. Otherwise, its right up there with a stock Evo VIII and SRT-4.

    That would be sweet if this car is capable of low 13 sec such as that. Im gonna wait till they are out before I blow my load, but just imagine this car in more experienced hands. Let this car breath more and itll be nuts.

    So do I just wait a few years and get a new Cobra, or do I get a job and trade in for an STi in a year or so?

    oh the agony of waiting!!

    I couldn't decide what car I wanted. I really did consider an 03 Cobra, but I just put a down payment on a 2004 STi. What made me change my mind was my race against a
    2002 M3 the other day. Slipping the clutch at 4K, I left that M3 a good 2 cars back at the top of 1st gear. I've done the same to Z06 Vettes, Lightnings, etc. I will do the same to an 03 Cobra. Try racing from a dead stop at 8am in the morning with cold tires in a Cobra. You will be left spinning on the line. I get the majority of my races on the street. I just love the way a WRX jumps off the line. Even at 8am in the morning with cold tires a WRX can haul ass from a dead stop. Just try that with a Cobra, z28. SRT-4, Vette etc. They just can't touch a modded WRX in a stop light to stop light battle.
    Also you get great traction on wet, sandy, dirty, road conditions. Its a all weather performance car. Definately can't be said about the Cobra.


    At the drag strip the Cobra might be king but on the street its going to be the STi.

    I expect the sti to trap at a higher speed given that the txs stage 4's trap at around 108-110 average..."worked out" numbers are rarely accurate. Until I see consistent 1/4 times and mph's, I'll take this with a grain of salt.

    There are pics of the car from that day on nasioc.com too it is definatly an sti unless someone bought an 04 wrx and swaped it with a usdm sti interior and swapped hood scoops and wings, took out the radio, and put sti badges all over his car. And yes that is an srt-4 thats what they look like.

    That's the thing....... they don't get good traction, unless they have some serious suspension work, or some big ole slicks. Dodge screwed up big time making it an open diff.

    Plus, he was racing an STI. No match there, no matter what the SRT-4 forums say.

    Actually both of the cars spun their tires, the guy in the sti had the dccd on full lock(50:50) and was still spinning all 4, the 1/8th mile drag strip they were at is notorious for having no traction at all.

    Fastest stock time for the EVO8 so far is 13.1 @ 104.

    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.
