    Raced a sti today!

    Today was my first race of the year. I was just cruzing down by the park when i see a new sti going really slow, he must of been waiting for me. So we meet up and decide to go run them. First we run from a dead stop and i spun the tires completely through first gear and he jumped to a about a 1 1/2 cars on me maybe 2. When i finally caught i started to pull him back in but we stoped at about 80. A little farther and i could of passed him. So the next time we went from about 15-20 mph roll and i pulled right away had about 2 cars by 80 and a pulling but he backed off. I have a 1998 trans am ws6 a4 with 16,500 miles and it's all stock beside's loud mouth 2 exhaust. And his car was 2005 sti stock i think. I was very suprized how quick that thing was out of the hole. I need to work on my launch i guess that is the first time i have had spin that bad. The road we were on was very dirty and not very good traction but still no excuse!

    good run, yeah they're quick out of the hole -they're AWD. You get jumpy when you get to race and usually screw something up, that's just how it is lol.



    Now somebody give me credit for knowing the difference betwee their there and they're. Next week we will study the letter E

    The STi, or the Evo, will most likely always have the hole shot on the streets, even if you have drag radials (Unless you like breaking parts heating up your drag radials on the street, or sending out Indian Pow Wow Signals to the cops of a race). If you have good gearing you can fend their advantage slightly.

    I use to own an Evo, and could punch out a 1.8 sec. 60' on street tires 99% of the time. The STi is even more dangerous, as it has alot more torque down low. They typically fall on their face after the 1/8th mile if they are stock though.

    In any event, good run. I think you would've pulled past him had he stayed in it to 100.

    Nice races man.

    Always run Evos/STi's from a roll if you can, you'll destroy them

    Only if they are stock. The Evo's respond very well to mods, especially more boost.

    well, at least, good attempted kill. It would've been yours if you two had stayed in it.

    Wait until you race a semi modded Evo/STi. With a little port and polish on the turbo, the STi's top end will get much better or a new turbo will help that area. A Cobb Stage 2 STi will also give you a good run for your money. As for Evos... The respond very well to all mods, so watch out, especially if one has cams and a good tune.

    wait until you run an F1, or an enzo. What? that's different? how? Run what you see on the streets, and shutup about what else is out there. That gets old in EVERY thread. I don't give a damn how fast a civic or anything CAN be until I run it on the street

    I have... It wasn't pretty for me. I know that there is always a car out there that is faster than I am.

    There are 20g turbo and GT30r turbo STi's running around on the street. i was just sayng that do not think you will always rape an STi or Evo from a roll. Our top end problems can be solved, it just takes some money.

    Yep... wouldn't wanna have a real race w/ one of those. 0-60, 1/4 mile, top speed - just don't do it.

    I do admit, though, that there's nothing like a roll-on torque monster. Real world power is n-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-ce.

    What's it cost to mod an LS1 (don't include nitrous... not an anytime, anywhere mod in my opinion)? Assume I want to run high 11's...

    Those turbo AWD cars are basically unbeatable from a stoplight unless you have serious mods.

    Yeah, with the right power, you can run one down. But, by then you're going 100 or more. Not so safe to keep racing past that most of the time.

    Those things are definitely stoplight demons.

    Why the lame, "oh yeah, well my car is cheaper to mod" crap???? Just appreciate another fast car already!!!!

    I don't see anyone making that type of comment.

    I honestly want to know what to expect - I'm seriously considering an LS1 SS.
