    Pretty quiet exhaust on the LS1, and the driver apparently was only capable of chirping his tires on one of the shifts. Also seemed to take forever for the LS1 to wind out 1st gear, which is odd considering it has 4.10's... Also, based on the time frame on the video, the STi took off at about the 2.5 second mark in the video, and the Camaro hit the brakes at 14 seconds. 14-2.5 = 11.5 seconds, or about 1-1.5 seconds earlier than what those cars would have crossed the 1/4 mile mark at (assuming 12.5-13.0 for both cars, based on their mods). It's also impossible to tell from the video if both cars left at the same time or if one got a slight jump.

    Regardless, though, the STi won that particular race. It wouldn't shock me to see a closer or different result if the two cars raced a few more times.

    And the STi tranny is considerably stronger than the WRX's.

    I haven't heard of many STi tranny's breaking, so I'm guessing it can handle those kind of launches ;p
