    To respond to your ignorant comment about John Force and his rear wheel drive I will respond by saying, LOOK AT THE TIRES, they are not exactly what you see on a C5 on the street. If you know anything about a car with loads of torque (which a C5 does) and you are a little too anxious you will just spin and go nowhere, kind of like communicating with YOU. The WRX on the other hand has four tires putting power to the ground so off the line advantage goes to WRX. And like I said, after about 40 - 50 the C5 will pull on a WRX.

    Quarter mile 13.4 sec @ 109.4 mph
    Top Speed 172 mph

    WRX
    Zero to 60 mph 5.9 sec 5.9 sec
    Zero to 100 mph 17.5 sec 17.3 sec

    if anyone beens to the track...and if anyone has ran there car @ the track....i bet you guys have taken a lot more cars than your supposed to.the c5 stock is supposed to run from 13.3 13.5 with perfect driver .....its top end owns ...but off a launch...unless the guy can handle all that torque.....a wrx should outlaunch him easily and than get reeled in later on....of course if some young kid is driving a vette and cant handlle the power....plus the fact that guy said vette driver gave up at like 50...of course wrx would still be ahead.....1.8 60 ft times are common with wrx...good kill

    the cyndicate....are you retarded or something???..first of all ...that's with perfect drivers....and an AWD car is a hell of a lot easier 2 launch than a rwd car with ALL that torque and power...yeah there supposed to run mid 13's ...and yeah wrx runs 14.2-14.5 stock...but you made your own point...the guy didn't say he raced him 1/4mile at a test track for road and track or whoever the helll......it was on the street...so it is street bull****...with some 22 year prep driving his daddys car.....guy took him off a launch up to 50 which is very believable....plus ..for about 100 u can run 13.6 with a wrx....just an mbc u can run about 13.7 and get a home made sprayer kit like that one guy running 13.5 wiht just mbc and homemade sprayer...plus..dont forget ....not many wrx cars you see on the street are gonna be stock...unless its brand new or some old dude is driving it.....its a turbo car.....very moddable....and pretty damn cheap car to mod...i bet about half the wrx owners on this site will take a stock vette 1/4 mile off a launch....think about it before you call bs....trial and error of a launch is a hell of a lot more than from a roll...if it was from a roll....than we would all be putting up bs flags...you get a stock vette...and come run my wrx off a launch at a quarter mile track...lets see what happens..unlesss your a perfect driver..i'll probably take you

    Cyndicate...Those numbers from R&T should not even be entered in this equation, as they were recorded by professional drivers who had no disregard for the longetivity of the car. R&T recorded the RX8 at 5.9 0-60 using an 8000 RPM clutch drop, and no self-respecting owner who paid 35k of their own pocket is going to be stupid enough to try to reproduce that on a consistant basis(I hope). Take this: pretend the WRX had a perfect launch (5.6 0-60 is possible with the WRX) and the C5 bogged pretty hard (lets tack on .8 seconds to the 0-60 times) If they shut down at around 60, the C5 and 'rex would be fairly even. So yes, it is possible for a WRX to beat a C5 on the street. Not a flame, bro, just the facts.

    cyndiate, you are stoned out of your mind. a stock c5 isn't half the car you are making it out to be. it's a fast car, no doubt - but you have serious issues if you believe anything you are saying.

    I have pulled on c5's without problems, so don't sit there with yer comic book collection and say a sti will get smoked. you assclown.
