It all depends on drives skill. Drives being equal an EVO should win but anything is possible in racing.Originally posted by Vtach12
Does anyone know if a WRX sedan with a UTEC stage 1 would beat a stock EVO8 in 0-60 and the 1/4 ? The HP would be equal, and the WRX would have a slight weight advantage. Anyone?
In a different forum there is a topic about a stock WRX with a mbc is just as fast a an 04 STi in an 1/8 mile race. This is based on the new STi running 8.60s-8.70s in the 1/8 mile by 1 driver.
This is not a very good arguement. The average driver doesn't run 8.60s in the 1/8 mile with just a mbc. Just because 1 or 2 guys have done it doesn't mean its the rule.
I've run as fast as 8.40 in the 1/8 mile with just exhaust and mbc. That doesn't mean my WRX with a mbc and exhaust is faster than an 04 STi. It just means I'm a good driver.
As soon as some skilled drivers (former WRX racers) get some run in the new STi we will know how fast it is. Right now most the guys making runs in the new STi have no experience driving a WRX.
