If you can drive, no problem, if he has more done, maybe a problem. I just hate to see everyone underestimate a car like that. If you boosted that car, it would easily hand our cars our asses easily. Remember that it's rated at 200hp without any forced induction. Our cars only have 27 more hp with a turbo.
    Ding ding ding! We have a winner!

    Given equal drivers, the WRX should win due to its superior launch. If the WRX doesn't have at least a car lead at the 60', the ITR will probably reel it in before the end of the 1/4.

    Both of you are wrong. No stock integra can push low 14s but you certainly don't need more than 200HP to break 14s.

    True, but the Acura is seriously short on torque. Without getting into FWD vs. AWD, this is why even a stock WRX, driven decently, should whoop on a Type R 9 times out of 10.

    So is the S2000 and yet it would pound on the WRX 9 times out of 10 (given expert drivers in both). Don't underestimate cars with very short gears and 8000+ redlines. Gearing is a torque multiplier so the ITR doesn't really need to produce that much engine torque.

    A Type R is a great performance car. I was looking for one before buying my Rex, but couldn't find one. Don't think that it's a slug because I seen some (as couple mentioned on here) run mid 14s with just bolt-ons. Our AWD will aid us off the line against a ITR, but from a roll it will pull us back from the ITR. They are deadly up top comparing to our weak 4 and 5 gear....

    OK, but since we were talking about a Type R, the WRX has a lot more torque and should win about every time. The S2K obviously has more hp, torque, and RWD for a better launch.

    Oh well, hurry up and wax him so we dont have to listen to all this chatter. ive bent over GSR's so hard, i know that the extra 20 horse wouldnt even make things interesting. with the GSR, It was over when it started.

    And to all the VTEC'ers dont whine about the wrx's poor gearing, we should be done shortly after 3rd-4th upshift. with somewhere back with you in our rear view mirror.

    unless your car is turboed.

    The WRX has Torque advantage from a roll
    and AWD advantage from dig

    Spanking out of the hole, close from a roll. Get a boost controller if he wont race you from a stop.

    I don't think it would from a roll. In a 1/4 mile race yes, but from a roll, it would be close. And if the person in the WRX can't drive, it would be close for both.

    I have something to say to this too. I own both a WRX and a S2000 and from a roll, the S2000 hung with me from 70-130 no problem. The only lead I got on the S was while I was in 3rd gear. After that the S2000 held it's own and inched a litte back until I shifted into 5th in the WRX. Keep in mind my S2000 runs a 14.2 @ 95 mph with my girlfriend driving it, and in my WRX I run a 13.3 @ 100.XX mph.

    This is pretty true too. You can cut 2.2-2.5 60' times in a Type R depending on the driver, and you can cut 2.0-2.5 60's in the S2000 depending on the driver. But torque is mainly just good for getting you off the line. HP is what makes your car ultimately faster.

    And not to be a smartass here, but the Type R has 30 more hp here in the US than the GSR. Well 25hp depending on the year.

    And yeah race so you can post the results.

    ----noob update-----
    ok it looks like this noob did some research he claims the wrx 1/4 isnt as slow as he thought...however...he claims that he think the "faster type r's" (wtff??????) are capable of hitting 13.9 bone stock...this isnt just this kid but i also know a kid with a 400 hp integra who claims to have broke 14.0 stock...i dont want to call this kid a lier but is this ****t even possible



    anyway i made a bet...100 dollars says i beat him by .5 seconds on the track...this its a good bet??? im planning on running at worst a 14.5 in 3 tries
