    Stage IV VS Supercharged SATURN ION!!!!!

    Haha, I had to post it, I'm sorry. I was at our local meeting point and this cocky driver with his wannabe WRB Pearl saturn supercharged thing approaches us. "Who's subaru?" "mine" "wanna race the superchaged ion" "are you serious?" yeah he was, serious as a heart attack, and he was naive enough to think he was gonna spank me as he started talkin the smack. So we roll out to our race spot but a cop already occupied it so i decided to be nice and give him the advtange, turn around and go from a roll. at 35 in second gear, i get on it and wait for boost to spool and proceed to put about 15 limos on him. When we got back to our meeting spot he just said "wow, that was fun" and walked off. Good sport I guess? I thought this was too funny to pass up posting!

    I wouldnt be that confident... they are not really THAT fast, but will stick click off low 15's. which is right around if not a tad better than a specV... also, caverdini is stageIV. but even a stock rex would have made him cry

    C/D estimated times:

    0-60: 6.2s
    1/4 mile: 15.0s @ 96mph

    15 flat....hmmmm. Sounds a bit optimistic

    yup sounds a bit optimistic to me. Although it is supercharged so anything is possible. Numbers could be under rated. Just look at the srt 4. dodge did some sandbaggin on that one.

    the ion has a bit of a weight issue.. they advertised it pre release that it was going to be 2600lbs.. everything I've seen from other sources post release says it's about 2900 or so... that' weight advantage goes away real quick when it gains 300 lbs.. check Sport compact car's review: http://www.sportcompactcarweb.com/ro...05scc_redline/

    they had it listed as 2960.

    Redline Who???

    I tested the Ion Redline awhile back, and was very disapointed with it. Power delivery felt like a 2000 Civic Si. Only good thing about it was the brakes and handling. A Stock WRX-SRT will walk all over an Ion Redline, I Gurantee It

    yeah, a bit optimistic indeed... from what i have heard it is more around the 15.1-15.4 area... but who knows. for the money though its definatly a competitor with the spec V, SI, etc...
