ha that seems rather hard to believe, i guess maybe the sti driver was really bad? I raced one on the interstate one night in my stg1 wrx and pulled dead even with him... maybe mine was a freak incident or something?

I'm guessing that the STI driver didn't know that he was racing 'til after the M3 had launched. I <3 E36 M3's, but I wouldn't think that he would stand a chance without FI of some sort. I could be wrong; I'm no expert at the mod path for those cars.

i dont know, for some reason a 4.8 sec 0-60 car getting pulled by a 6 sec 0-60 car from a dig seems not credible to me. just read the replies. poeple do beleive that. even if you mess up the launch on an sti, you still get freaking good jump.

I read that whole thread...they obviously are biased...

They obviously have no clue what an STI is capable of, even in Stock form. I've had my STI up to 150mph...and it got there pretty quickly and that certainly isn't a loss at top end...my Dyno sheets even prove that the HP is pretty steady until 7200rpms or so...

Obviously I will be biased to STIs too...but I know they aren't the Be-all-end-all of fast cars. We all know an E46 M3 will probably start to take an STI at 100+ mph. But an E36 M3 after 100+ mph? Highly unlikely, especially with that guy's insane 4.11 gearing...

my two pennies:sadwave:

Yes, you are.

A stock STi v stock E36 M3 is a driver's race if you knew any better. Especially after 90mph.

m3 tops out at 120mph? the sti would of killed him top speed. stock STi's top out at 155mph. i did 155 on the interstate a few weeks ago and it hit 7k rpms and hit the limit and the car felt liek it was going to shut down, so i slowed back down to 70mph.

I don't get that. How is he biased for saying an e36 m3 is slower than an sti, now if it was an e46 then i could see that but an e36? it has like 240bhp

It's no different than the fanbois here. We've got regulars here who tell you that their WRX can beat all sorts of quicker cars.

I think you misunderstood the quotes. It's one guy responding to another guy.

Especially the 2.5L'zZzz!1!!!!!1!!! (It's basically an STI) :rotfl:

No i got that, one guy was saying the other is biased for saying an STi is faster than an e36 m3. I just don't understand how thats biased. Even some of the owners other than that one guy say it is, i guess that one guy is just out to lunch

hey, all the STI drivers watch out for the mad e36 m3. they are going to get you all, and pull away from you from a dig, and over 100mph. j/k

I just fail to see how an e36 M3 would pull away from my "lightly modded" STI. My car pulls straight hard as hell through all 6 gears...the HP curve does not drop off really more than 20hp or so by redline after it peaks...and at that point, I still have WAY much more power to the wheels than an e36 M3...

But then again, at this point, I'm paper racing so...:baaa:

Sounds like WRX vs anything on this forum. A few very knowledgeable people, and more people who think their car needs parachutes to stop.

You mean yours doesn't? You must be slow :p



I by all means know that my car is not the be-all-end-all of fast cars. But at the same time, nobody can deny its fast as hell from a dig and will run a 12.4 quarter mile...and it pulls hard until 150mph...proven. I've driven an e36 M3 and yes, they are immaculate cars and I love them and always have. They are very quick as well, but just in driving it, it didn't feel near as fast as my STI...with those experiences, I take from it that an e36 M3 won't beat my STI, even in high speeds. E46 M3 on the other hand...would just use that N/A's 3.2L I6 to begin walking me at the higher speeds...

Difficult to judge between these cars by "seat of the pants", because of the rush that FI delivers. I think that yes, the STI is the quicker of the cars, but maybe not by the margin that some of you are thinking...at least not worth the heckling that 350Zimo is giving it.

And Mike, you're comparing your Stage 2 STI to it...I thought we were talking about stock vehicles. :confused:
