    So far so good! My car is also my daily driver, and so far I've racked up 16k miles on it driving downtown Chicago every day. I don't drop the clutch, and I rarely take off hard out of the hole. That said, I don't drive easy either, I'm an aggressive driver and I drive my car hard. So far its held up beautifully, stock clutch and stock tranny.

    I would assume his Z28 was stock. I didn't ask him but it looked stock. He still had the stock exhaust out back. Thats usually a pretty good sign.

    I didn't post my other kill but it was also good. I raced an 03 Mach1. He came flying up on me from behind doing probably 100mph. He then got caught at the next red light. We both hit it in the middle of 1st gear. I pulled on him hard and steady up to 90mph. I had him by several if not more cars. The best part was the guy in the Mach 1 had a hot girl friend and she couldn't take her eyes off the mighty WRX. Her jaw dropped and she let out a scream as I walked away from her boyfriends Mustang. It was priceless.

    Yep the slushbox usually kills off some hosepower.

    I gotta think that a Camaro is still more aerodynamic than a rex. Any of you stage 4 guys know where your cars top out? Wondering if there would be a point where the old F body would come back past on the way to its 171 mph (or 168 with a low profile light rack) top speed.

    Can you tell the NY state police has some LS-1 Camaros

    I don't know the official top speed of a Stage 4 WRX but it in the 160+mph range. I talked to one guy who said he got his WRX up to 164mph at some track. He said that the speed was official (what ever that means) He had basically a Stage 4 Setup on his WRX.

    I've had my WRX up to 155mph being shadowed by a WS6 Trans Am. My WRX had more in it but I was afraid to go anyfaster.
    The car handled the speed pretty good but not nearly as good as my old LS1 z28.
    The biggest problem is slowing down a WRX from 155mph with the stock brakes. The stock brakes don't work very well at all at high speeds.
