This is a discussion on matrix forums...thinks his XR is faster than a Rex within the Comparison: WRX vs World forums, part of the Community - Meet other Enthusiasts category; Man, these guys are so misinformed. Actually thinking that a 65 shot of N20 actually adds 65hp. Good read! [/B] ...

    The way I understand it (and I could be wrong) but depending on which brand you go with, a 65 shot will add 65whp and even more torque, if not more. I've heard NX is good for that, but NOS typically dyno's lower than their listed shot. Just FYI.

    BTW, that forum is stupid

    17.9 in the quarter??? I would fall asleep. I've never put my WRX on a track, and I can't drive for sh*t, but I think I could beat that time on bike! I know the two vehicles are worlds apart...they shouldn't expect great slips....but then why put it on the track? I wouldn't ever put a Jeep Liberty or a bone stock GMC 4x4 on the track? Who cares how fast a vehicle like that goes? On the same note...why would you put one of these on the track? I hope no one was watching. LOL!!!
    Gripping the wheel his knuckles went white with desire. The wheels of his WRX exploding on the highway like a slug from a .45. True Death. 227 horsepower of maximum performance piercing the night...this is Blue Sunshine.

    Thumbs up

    Wow, this is the most fun I've had trolling in a long while. With titles to threads like "Chances against a cavalier?" and "2 TRIXES SMOKE A BOXSTER". Basically the WRX is done, as soon as I get back to the states i'm just gonna have to sell it and get something that sounds cool like a Trixie

    Maybe we can expect a video soon of someone in a "trixie" running a 18sec quarter mile while yelling "LIFT"?? I mean its only bound to happen.

    Ahhhh.. so THAT'S how he does it!


    I thought they had one that wasn't slow.. not fast.. but not slow. Something like 160hp? I guess I was wrong, though I read somewhere that they actually handle OK, which is a good thing because you definately don't want to be scrubbing off speed in one of those
