    I raced a Modded WRX From a roll, had full exhaust, Upper pipe, Better bov and as much PSI those things can handle stock, I stillwalked him bad stock, but his car was louder then mine.


    I blame the turbo, you need turbo upgrade, in a drag race, better driver should win in th 1320.

    I raced one from a roll with similar mods and I lost.... not by much, but I lost. The wrx turbo can't keep up with that evo turbo. If he has any work done, then forget it....

    Stage 2 should about do it.... it's a driver's race at that point.

    Oh my Lord

    Ok, kind of ironic that I ran into an Evo today...and a modified one at that...

    We both jump on the highway and theres people on the road so we both just get on and off the throttle to let each know we're game...and we both happen to get off the same exit...

    So we pull up to a stop sign and rolls through in front of me and I'm rolling in first gear and as soon as I catch his bumper I hit it and then he does...I have MAYBE a car on him from the jump and then he starts reeling me in...and quick. By 3rd gear he put about 2 maybe even a 3rd car on me.

    We pull up next to the next stop sign and he rolls down the window and goes "hey thats pretty quick" and I said basically the same thing and that it sounded insane and he asked me if its on a stock turbo so I said yeah and I gave him a card for my site so hopefully he signs up because his car is QUICK! and he seemed like a pretty cool kid.

    He said he had "basic bolt ons" no engine management...looked catless cause he was covering me in smoke and my mods are a UTEC on the base Stage 2 map (with my timing tweaked by PaulRex) and a Turbo XS turbo back with a high flow cat and the version 1 muffler and a Turbo XS up pipe...but god damn he walked on me...I can't wait for Stage 4...

    Actually a stage 4 would do it.

    Ignore "WRX Kila", he just proves that even a moron can buy a nice car.

    i beat 2 different stock evo's with several runs from rolls and stops. When i had just a stealthback, 16psi, and uppipe. I'd say from 0-90, you got em. they will start to hang over 90 and possibly catch up. 1 of the evo's I raced was a very good driver. Then again I only ran a 13.5 so its possible for one to have beaten me assuming that is my best possible time. I'd say its a driver's race with the odds on you. Good luck
