Well, I don't want to cause too much trouble, because I have mad respect for both cars...but the times you showed are obviously 1/4 mile times from a track. You have to figure that an STI is ripping the GTP a new one off the line (if the GTP is running 12.9s). So where is the GTP getting its lead? Probably on the top end.Originally posted by soon2BWRXd
I said that, because you said it doesn't beat the GP running 12.9 by much. And from what I have read STi's run 13.1...but from what I have seen they run 13.5....thats not close, thats .6 seconds off the pace! that is at least 1 car length..if not more.
But like you said it is good to compair stock for stock..but then you are compairing apples and Oranges when you compair a GTP to a STi...but oh well.
In most situations on the street, the STI has the advantage simply because that modded GTP will have to wait until high speeds to get that lead.
What I'm trying to illustrate is that on the street, the STI is going to be a BIATCH to beat because most street races don't go into triple digits...well, at least I don't. I shouldn't generalize all of you like that But a lot of cars that are faster than the STI have worse 1/8 mile times I'll venture to bet...so the STI is going to run with, if not beat, most cars on the street due to the nature of the races.
And yes, there is always someone out there that's faster. It just isn't me!
