You are missing the point. Don't quote HP numbers. The RSX has 200HP. The WRX has 227. Not that much of a difference considering the fact that the RSX is a tiny bit lighter. And yet the WRX doesn't just edge out the RSX. It doesn't just beat the RSX. It absolutely and totally annihilates it. 3 second difference in 1/4 ETs and yet only a 27HP difference so something doesn't add up. The mistake you are making is looking at HP which is a completely useless stat. In fact, sometimes I have to wonder how car companies come up with HP numbers. Maybe they draw them from a hat?Originally posted by znith
You are missing the point. The supra had 450 hp. The wrx had 227 hp.
I suspect that the Supra is not making very much torque which is why the stock WRX, with all 217lb-ft of torque, should be able to crush one.
