    yea, it all depends on how his car is running, and whether he has mods or not...you can make those cars pretty fast for not too much $$ at all...He can just remove the cat and up the boost and he'll smoke you...

    well don't expect to rip him out of the hole like u do alot of cars ... i have seen street gs-x and talons first gens running low 11s they are quick with just a big 16g a turbo back intake and boost controller
    if its not fast it better be a show car

    Those talons can be real quick. My roomate drives a 95' Eclipse GSX and up until lately he would walk all over me. They run 210 hp stock and have the beauty of all wheel drive. They weigh about the same as the WRX as well.

    LOL. It's BIASED .


    he keeps nagging me about putting money on it.
    sounds fishy ... Like maybe he's not stock after all?

    4G63 motors are serious...

    My partner has a 2g eclipse, it is a front wheel drive, so traction is an issue until 3rd gear...but if i would have known these cars even existed in 1999 when i was looking for a car, i'd be driving a DSM, they are so damn fun...

    I raced a few AWD eclipses, some box stock and some not stock whatsoever...

    Stock for Stock, very close....up to driver....big emphasis on driver..

    I have Turbo Back exhaust and Ecutek tuned to 16 psi...

    I Raced 97 GSX with Hahn Super 16g (10cm) exhaust side.
    Big front mount, etc....etc...

    Raced him from a dead stop and got 2 carlengths out of the hole on 3 different occasions...
    Never looked back...
    From a freeway roll he will pull a carlength or two but he's got the bigger turbo....he should be pulling on me...
    just goes to show how strong the wrx can be....even in close to stock form...

    if its truely a stock for stock race than you will hands down. you have the faster car, and your car is fast enough to even throw in some driver error on your part, if that happens.

    if hes modded in anyway past an intake, dont put money on it. all he needs is $350 to tear you apart. if you want to go for money i dont see why not if you are confident in your driving ability. either way, if he beats you, then you know he was lying about being stock, so look under his hood, dont pay him, and then punch him in the stomach for lying to you.

    stock eagle TSI is good for low 15's and high 14's with a really good driver. wrx is a low 14sec car and easily a mid 14sec car with average driver.

    It also makes a difference if he is a 1G or a 2G talon. The first gen. have a 14b turbo and is much quicker than the T25 on the second gen. If it's a first gen. it'll be real close. If it's a second gen. stock for stock you should have no problems.
