    WRX v. GTI

    Ok, last night my friend let me drive his 04 WRX, and we see a GTI (current generation)next to us at a stop light. He keeps glancing over and moving up to the line. He definently had exhaust and A-pillar gauges which actually looked wicked nice. We weren't sure he was going to go for it because on the other side of the road, 2 cops were searching some kids' cars on the side of the road. So I basically let him go first, as the light turned green, we could hear the engine winding out in the GTI, so I let the clutch slip at around 3500 and took off. Here's the strange part, I blew by him like he was standing still at 35-40, and completely owned him by 3 car lengths. So I decided to slow down and see if he was still trying, and he was. So I just stayed neck and neck with him just inching ahead every so often, then I just pulled away. At 70 we were about 2 car lengths ahead and he was still trying. His tires would chirp everytime he shifted and we could hear his engine screaming. The thing is, I wasn't really trying but he was. At the next stop light he wouldn't look over despite us trying to talk to him. I thought it was very strange because first of all, I always thought GTI's were faster than that, and he couldn't have been a worse driver than me because I just learned stick last week.

    your right GTI's aren't that fast off the line. take one on the highway and you'll see who's faster. It's not alway's about the sprint, it's about the marathon. I Raced my friend in his WRX last night and once we hit 100 I was pulling on him with ease. He has a full TB and CAI. I'm chipped and and intake so go figure a gti w/ my mod's are a little quicker than me.

    GTI's are underated. I raced a 1.8 turbo when I had my Rex Wagon, with an mbc and when we raced from a roll I pulled on it only slightly. When we went from a stop up to about 70 I had a few cars on it. Still pretty quick nontheless.

    GTI with a good driver bone stock can run 14.5(its been done). I ran a 15.0449 @ lacr in palmdale bone stock. With Chip, Turboback you can get 220whp(record is 248whp) and can run low to mid 13's.

    dude shut up, we already proved your god damn lies, why the fawk do you have to sign up on this forum with ur bullsh!t now, alteast keep this immature sh!t on tunergarage so we can just laugh at it, seriously ur so fawkn annoying. U wish u ran a 15.0 stock at lacr with ur gti, you even admitted ur damn lies after we said it made no sense.

    for the rest of you guys, i know this guy in person. His full of Sh!t and he lies way too much about EVERYTHING. We call him on his BS on a local forum we know. LACR isnt a great track, bone stock wrx best i've seen is my brothers which was a 14.5. Best i've seen from bone stock sti was a 13.4 (was my own with 1.7 60ft time and 99mph trap). Fawkn cobras do around my sti time at best. Its at 3000 elevation, horrible track conditions and last part of the 1/4 mile is uphill. This guy claimed he did 15.0 stock till we kept pushing him and he finally admitted his lies. go back to vortex and go sell sh!t that you never ship bro. koonar.
