Imagine how I feel. If you have a problem with a race being considered a "driver's race" then you're going to be angry a whole lot. We use "driver's race" in the context that 2 cars are almost equal in speed and it will ultimatly come down to who's the best driver. A WRX vs. a RSX-S from a roll is CERTAINLY a driver's race. Trap speeds indicate this time and time again. I don't know how much more proof you'd like.Originally posted by 2004SilverWRX
My point exactly. Front wheel drive is also a handicap like AWD drive is. I am getting sick of this "driver's race" thing. All races are up to the driver. I could race an idiotic Viper R/T driver who cannot drive a stick, and win. Did I beat the Viper? NO Racing from a roll doesn't recquire much skill.......mash the gas and don't miss a shift. Pretty simple. I also find the lack of top end arguement perplexing. The WRX has descent top end and pulls nicely to at least 100mph. Most races are long over before that anyway. The Celica board claims of (GT-S I am guessing) beating an Evo from a roll is ridiculous. I know if I beat an Evo from any speed the driver of the Evo was not racing or couldn't drive. Here we go again......a driver's race. It's not though, the Evo is quicker and faster AND I CAN ADMIT THIS FACT. [/B]
From a dig, it is NOT a driver's race. If a stock WRX loses to a stock RSX-S then its out of sheer stupidity on the WRX's part. He didn't want to launch hard woudl be my guess.
I'm not going to admit something that's false, i.e. that a RSX-S can't beat a WRX from a roll. That's completely false. If I were stock, I'd say "get a stock WRX to race me from a roll and we'll get back to you guys" but unfortunately I'm not stock so it wouldn't be fair.
And we can't find a similarly modded WRX because there is no such thing I've gotta be honest with you, I think some of the WRX guys are having more trouble seeing the truth to this matter than anyone else. And if you don't like racing from a roll, don't do it. But please don't say it takes no skill - if you select the wrong gear or can't rev match for ****, you're going to lose badly and that's skill my friend.
