    Yes, you bought the wrong car. If all you want to do is drag race, then you would be far better off with the Neon.

    I knew it!

    I knew it! I should of bought that damn EVO. The reason i didnt buy the STI was because they wanted to screw me over with the price. The EVO was more affordable. The reason i went with the REX was because i got an 04 fully loaded for $22,800 out the door!!!. Sticker on it was $27,500. So, i got a killer deal on it. If they would of worked with me on the STI, i would of had it.Im not trying to diss the rex, in fact i love it, its just that the EVO responds to mods more than the rex for less money

    Yeah, unfortunately, the boxer engine is not the best thing for dragging. It's benefit is primarily in it's low center of gravity which is great for handling. Of course, the whole deal w/the headers and up-pipe means we'll never respond quite as well to mods as the 4G63. What you can take comfort in is that you got a GREAT deal on your WRX, and that if you're shooting for realistic 1/4 mile times like mid-12's, you can still get there really easily (with a bit of cash).

    If you want to go fast in a straight line, just buy a bottle. Add a 75 shot if your brave go for 100. Along with full catless exhaust and maybe some kinda engine managment.

    The WRX isn't the fastest car in the 1/4 mile? Man, it must suck. I thought AWD rally cars were made for drag racing. You aren't cool unless your car can drive really really fast in a straight line. Driving in a straight line takes so much skill. Everytime I try to drag race I run into walls and stuff. If only I could drag race well. Holding a wheel straight is so hard. Cars shouldn't even have the ability to turn. It makes driving the quarter mile so hard. Damn, I bought the wrong car.

    But seriously, you got your Rex for less than 23k out the door and an Evo would have been about 30k out the door. If you plan on just using the car as a daily driver and realize that quarter mile times aren't important, you made the right choice. Spend that 7k on something else. If you are worried only about quarter mile times getting an AWD car doesn't really make sense to me.

    Real rally cars would only run high 11s-low 12s in the quarter mile even with their immensely reduced weight and increased power. Rallying is not about who can drive fast straight, its about who can DRIVE.

    Driving in a straight line takes so much skill.
    it does when you're trying to cut the same time one time after another example, running consistant 11.236's EVERY time you run down the track takes alot of skill. thats compatition and you can win $$ and sponsors too. if you cut a light thats 623 instead of 504, you're not going to run your dial in time... dont diss it if you dont know about it...unless you were joking.

    Since I have never run on a dragstrip? It might take a tiny bit of skill but nowhere near as much as driving a rally course or even a road course for that matter.

    Miguel,

    I will say that you probably did buy the wrong car....If you want, before you pay off much more, go trade for the EVO, since you got a great deal they will probably be able to pay off your WRX loan.

    I just dont think you looked at your wants or desires when you chose the car. You obviously like to drag race(as do I and most everyone as well), and no doubt street matchups are probably important(most are from a roll)....With these parameters a 165whp WRX vs a 240whp EVO and a 215whp SRT4 probably wasnt the right choice for you.

    BUT.....that doesnt mean you cant have your WRX running 12's with a modest amount of work and owning all sorts of cars.
