    Forester XT vs. 350Z

    My friend at work has a 350Z with an intake and Borla exhaust, Sounds sweet. We've both driven in each others cars but never had a chance to actualy race. he had to drop his car off at the dealership near my work so we played a little but on the way. We didn't get to line up because of traffic but we had some fun.

    He was behind me from a stop at two different lights and we both hammered our cars up to about 90mph. Both times I had about 2 cars on him, granted he was behind me and I had a bit of a jump on him. His car started to pull as a little closer after about 80mph or so, has some real nice top gear. My friend gave me the following compliment. "To be honest, I had trouble keeping up with you." Anyway, I think when we finnaly get to line up it will be a very close race. Nice to see the wagon hanging with the sports cars.

    Nice job. The XT is a pimp sleeper...love it.

    Any mods on the Forester?

    No mods yet. Bone stock. Wouldn't mind the downpipe and center pipe though.

    Guys over here are giving it their all on the tracks with the XT's. They've been running 14.2s with the 5spd and something like high 14s with the auto. Thats on the track where the conditions are unfavorable... hot and humid. The track near where I live has cool dry weather and the same cars that run over there all run .5 seconds slower. Definitely high 13 sec suv's.

    It's not photochop, it's an actual Subaru ad. Yeah they are pushing it with the family thing, but with one or 2 drivers in each car the Forester would come out on top. I would pay money to watch a Forester tear a 350z a new one, or a new turbo Outback for that matter...

    yup put some simple exhaust mods on the Forester and it could probably walk all over a 350.

    Motion to start a mod fund so STR can start modding the hell out of his XT.
