It has a Turbo? o.0 Then its an STI or a modded WRX which would probably walk all over you.

No the wrx non sti has a turbo. Usually, most imprezas they are not stock. So watch it. Race from a roll. He is awd. Also go above 100 that's where our displacement will walk them.

All impreza's and legacys are not turbo. ALL WRX's for ever are turboed. They are only 225 hp or 265 depending on the year. They pull better in the high rpm's but you destroy them from a dig. They have traction but they don't ahve any power down low so they blow ass at drag.

From a roll they are more likely to get you cause they will build boost and rape you on the highway. Unless you are over 100 mph, then you will be able to beat them on displacement like they said.

lol...this isnt the first time ive heard this question. Take it from me, who hates imports completely, The wrx's are some bad ass rides. A buddy of mine has a turbo wrx, and he took me for a ride and shocked the hell out of me. That thing threw my head in the seat. But i think you could give him a a decent run if you went from the roll. But i still think he'll take ya in the long run.

I raced an 02 WRX with a BOV exhaust and intake from a 30 roll and literally raped him. He got the jump on me, I had him by a length at like 50mph. Then by 80mph I was just pulling hard. I had 3 passengers in the car too.

A wrx is a very nice car, I wouldnt mind having one as a DD. I have a few friends that own them, and they do fairly well when modded they just aren't quite an STI. The cars really benefit from exhaust, so he might keep up fairly well. Even though they have AWD, they kind of bog some due to lack of power. Launching doing the redline drop just risks breaking it, and hopefully your friend knows better. You should be able to take a lightly modded wrx, just dont gloat ahead of time, and dont be surprised if you lose.

What is the year of it. That makes a big difference. I have a friend with a stage 2 STI, a stage 2 EVO, a stage 4 wrx and a stage 2 wrx.

The WRX's with stock turbo are not that fast. They just aren't. My friend with a stage 2, which is new piping and tune and full exhaust. It is about the same as my car was stock.

The stage 4 one (new piping, new turbo and everything redone but the block) was 450 crank horse power. It was crazy, huge lag, but definitely faster than my car.

The stage 2 STI and EVO are a whole nother thing, The EVO was faster than the stage 4 wrx, but the STI was not. But they were both really fast. 300 awhp.

I used to be a subby tech. I had no respect for them till I worked there. Wrx is a decent little car. When we did pdi's on the sti's..very nice rides.

The 06 has a 2.5l motor in it that is turbo. They make 265 or something. IF it is the one that isn't the gay new look but still has the weird looking front, its an 06-08. They are pretty quick. It will be a drivers race, definitely try to abuse your displacement though.

i roll around with 6 of these f**k heads and a ws6. they rape me and the ws6 from a dig. from a roll its a different story if they don't brake boost. and i actually have full bolt-ons+cams. my cousin 07 sti that was pulling the same 60' ft times as a mach 1 on slicks.

You floor it but keep your speed down by holding down the brakes, so you launch at full boost instead of just partial boost when your rolling.

Yeah the STI is going to launch like a monster cause its AWD. The non STI's have issues spooling the turbos though, so the wheels grip but the engine isn't into power yet so they don't do that well.

How are you getting rolled by stock wrx's? Unless they are 06+ with the 2.5L you have no excuse to being beat by any wrx that doesn't have a new turbo at the very least.

I have a NPI and I was shotgunning with a couple of stage2 04 wrx's and he could not run away.

Just go race and report back.

Its a drivers race. If the kid can drive, it should be a good race. If he's a retard, you should win.

I'm sure this race will take place in Mehico somewhere, and not on public roads, right :)
