And no car is that fast with a bad driver behind the wheel.
But I think you completely missed my point. Oh well....
My point was that some cars are more driver dependent than others.
My A4 LT1 and LS1 z28s were not all that driver dependent.
All you had to do is heat the tires and floor the gas. Didn't take much skill. Any average Joe off the street could run good times.
In my WRX and STi, the driver really needs to have some seat time and practice. It took me a while to learn how to launch my WRX when I first got it. I ran some really bad times at the track. My STi has also taken some getting used to. The shifts are fast and frequent. 4th gear comes at 75mph, 5th at 95mph
And about RSX - S. vs an STi.
Most the RSX-S, I see at the track run 15s. Most the STi's I see at the track run 13s.
Thats a pretty large gap.
Thats like me comparing my STi to cars that run mid 11s. Its a stretch. But anything can happen in racing.
