    Hell yeah! When are you gonna jump it? The new double wishbone suspension can take a hard landing from 12 feet up much better than the old setup.

    140's hard to get to in a wrx, you need a good road, and the re92's are iffy.

    Let's just hope it's a track.


    You'd need alot to get a stock wrx into the 140 range. Not to mention the stress you are putting on the car.


    Enjoy it while it lasts.

    What part of NY are you from, man? I'm outside the Albany area, and there's a perfect stretch of country road that you could easily get up to 140 right by my house (very little forestation, so you can see deer coming and you won't have to swerve), and in over 5 years of driving it on a semi-daily basis, I've never seen a cop on the road - I haven't personally ever tried going 140, but I did hit 100 the first day I bought the STi (had to do it once).

    do you mean you need a ton to get it to 140 on the track? that would mean its doing under 10 second qtr miles i would think... that would take a lot.

    you need a lot of space on a straight highway to get it to 140, the wrx's are slow to gain speed after 110mph if i can remember my old 04'.

    I got to 120 easy.And I was in 4th from 70mph. I was more worried about deer/cops or blowing my engine. And I live in the Ithaca area. Far away from Albany. How much power would a stage 2 make, and cost?

    HIPPIE!!

    I go to school at SUNY Binghamton - there are quite a few WRXs/STi's floating around the campus - if you're ever in the area, let me know.

    All I gotta say is be careful. Accidents at 100+ usually end up with someone decapitated and dead.
