    Cobb Stage 2 FXT vs Honda S2000

    Well

    Its not a wrx but dammit im part of the family too!! I was crusing along hwy @#$ north in Maryland and I see some HID's fast approaching so I figure he may want to play. We get to the stop light and we look over at each other and sure enough...The light turns green and we both launch.
    He started to pull on me in third but then I shifted to fourth then I started gaining. I was in fourth for a few seconds then it was time to STOP!!!!!

    I really just wanted to see what she could do and I thought I was gonna get an azz whupin but guys on the forester forum are killin em stock!


    Honda S2000 guy "What the H3ll do you have in that thing?"

    Me " A 2.5L turbo"

    Honda S2000" Mines only a four cylinder"

    Me "Mine is a detuned Sti four cyllinder!"

    Honda S2000 "Thumbs up!!"

    Guys in a pickup at the light who saw the whole thing" You have a wagon that fast that rocks!!!!!!"

    I would've thought you'd hammer on him from a stop, assuming it was a stock s2k. 1-2 cars from the launch and a slow walk from there.

    Nice race...

    Wish there was some video...I would love to see the FXT whooping up on some sports cars, I was talking to SouthPaw today and he said theres a modded one running around Ct. Must be a nice surprise at the stoplights

    does not sound like a fast car, no wonder they changed the name for the US market

    Did Cobb Stage 2 wake the FXT up nicely? I've been curious to hear some reviews.

    Yeah for my money it made a world of difference. This is how it should have felt from the factory. It was already quick but low end torque has improved even more and its really fun in fourth on the hwy.

    I'm glad to hear that Cobb's Stage 2 is a winner for both the WRX and the FXT.

    I'm surprised that you didn't completely destroy the S2000. Maybe the FXT can't launch as well as a wrx?

    Nah I think that I was intimidated by the s2000 and I didn't launch hard at all. Next time I'll know what she can do
