[QUOTE]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.[QUOTE/]
What does racing an S2000 have to do with racing an Integra? They are two very different cars. The s2000 is rated at 240 HP with a 2.0 liter engine and it is a 2 seater with rear wheel drive. The Integra is rated at 195HP and is 1.8 liters with a backseat (heavier car) with front wheel drive. Naturally the s2000 will fare better than the Integra Type R against a WRX. BTW I have whipped an s2000 (from a stop) with my 02 sedan (manual). I think your 9 out of 10 for the s2000 is greatly exagerrated if you are talking from a stop. And forget about the ITR. Stock for stock or WRX stock and ITR with a few mods, the WRX will win 10 out of 10 times with a decent driver.
