    you ever see what real tires can do?
    they can improve yer handling just as good as a set of coilovers.
    my friends honda runs 13.9 on street tires with slicks 13.1
    i'd say that sticky tires are a pretty good mod
    if you don't know now you know

    I ran a buddy of mine in his '03 Mustang GT 5-speed. He has off-road x-pipe, cat-back and 3.73 gears. Only mod on my WRX wagon is the air silencer has been removed. From a roll 60-65, he could not shake me. We ran it up to 110 or so three times and everytime he couldn't pull on me (but then again, I couldn't pull on him any). His best run at the track was 13.90's.

    Your stage 2 should easily beat a stock GT. I'd be curious if you could hang with a Mach 1 or not? That would probably be close depending on the driver.

    Sorry, just because you said so won't cut it. If a bone stock car puts on a set of stickier tires, I would still call it "bone stock", not "modded". No point in arguing -just a difference in opinion.

    i'm on many diff forums and i wonder why people never actually race anothe rcar enthusiast or someone knows how to drive. U ever realize how say this thread for example everyone has beaten a modded GT and if u go for example on stangnet they have a same story and they smoke the wrx and have video of it or something. it's just weird how 2 car enthusiasts with diff backgrounds don't meet up.

    few people run lower then a 14.3 in a wrx and probably the same in the mustang. it's just odd. 2 people who can drive their car should race.

    btw that 13.9 stang with the mods he needs to take a driving class or something lol

    So...your WRX wagon with only the silencer removed runs 13.90's? Sure buddy.
