    Stg 2 > Mitsu 3000 gt TT

    WRX-->2 people total, the 3000gt-->2 people total. It was on rt 19 near 7 eleven and a Red VR4 rolled up next to me reving and making a bunch of racket! I just look over and give the "nod." The light turns green and we both launch, 1st gear i pulled maybe a bumper length, end of 2nd i was 1.5 cars ahead, end of 3rd I was 2+ cars ahead. I slowed down and he did the ricer fly bye, which ticked me off becasue we had just had a sweet race. So the next light rolls around and we are lined up again. We both take off and I give it enough gas so I just stay beside him and my g/f blows him a kiss followed by a finger and I take off. He quickly turns. LOSER! WRX > VR4

    Nice runs. I too just had my 1st 3000GT VR4 encounter over the weekend. Those thing are heavier than the WRX.

    I love my Stage 2.

    The weight means diddly squat. I've owned tiny cars and big cars; who cares what it weighs as long as it performs?

    It just shows that people shouldn't challenge other cars in their 10 year old stock car.

    A BPU VR4 is much quicker than stock. I can run 12.90s with a MBC and downpipe on any otherwise-stock 3kGT/Stealth, all 4070 lbs of it.

    weight has to do with a lot on how well a car will perform. A smaller weight to power ratio will always help your car; it'll accellerate faster, slow down faster, able to corner with higher speed, etc.

    I agree that if you're only doing highway pulls then it's all about what's under the hood because weight is of little factor. But that's not the only thing I enjoy doing with my car.

    Lateral g's - beats NSX, Supra, C5:

    Slalom - beats "only" the C5:

    Braking - beats NSX & Viper, ties C5, 1ft behind Supra

    Considering the cars in that test, I don't think it did too bad. Give it the HP it needs (quick & easy) and it's that much more of a contender, despite the popular "it's too heavy" myth.
