    not sure if this is the same, but when I was stock I ran away from the evo8 at 100+ i just kept pulling from him. I think they have about the same HP as you all +/- 20

    A local guy with a heavily modded 03 WRX beat a modded 03 Cobra (pulley, DRs) from a stop.

    Then the Cobra guy locked his keys in his car, with the gas light on and the engine running.

    Especially from a roll, you should expect to lose to a 2003+ Cobra unless you're pretty well modified. All accounts I see put stock whp at 370+, and those numbers leap with mods.

    It wouldn't surprise me if the Cobra guy had 110 in his car. This guy drives with drag radials on his car on almost a daily basis. I don't think he ever takes them off on the weekends.

    Sounds like you did pretty good. You need to get a little better jump on him off the line to beat him in a full 1/4 mile.

    From your description of the race, you beat him up to 60mph or so. You were still holding your ground pretty good through 3rd gear (75mph or so) and then he just left you on the top end. Not bad.

    I had a pretty similar race against a modded 03 Cobra. I beat him off the line and stayed out in front of him up to about 80mph. Then he just walked away from me.

    btw, what can the sti do... mods wise to run with the cobra... like mine for example? not in the 1/4.. like a freeway run. a new turbo, injectors... or do they just crank up the boost on the stock setup?
