    SL600 vs MODDED WRX

    This was a good one. I did not get it into 3rd tho. Whoops. The thing had crazy weight reduction. No anything. no seats no radio no struts for the hood no speakers. All insulation was removed. no cruise no ac/heat, anything you can take off he took off. 18psi and Full bolt on's.

    Rolls are AWDs worst enemy why is that nice? If he did that from a dig it would be a different story.

    Its not AWD worst enemy, only when comparing crank hp becasue AWD eats more power through drivetrain but if both cars are making 330whp and weigh the same the AWD car would pull just as hard as a RWD with the same weight and power becasue its comparing hp after drivetrain lose.

    He had so much awhp he can't go from a dig. 6 transmissions later, and straight cut gears. That's the whine. It was a fun race. Just wish I had someone else to vid. If I hadn't missed a gear it would have been better. Also he weighed in at 2800lbs. Mine is all of 4500lbs.

    He jsut needs to dump like 20k into his drivetrain and he would be able to pull 1.2 60fts lol. I mean i know guys with 600-700awhp who launch there cars at 6krpms.

    I dont think he had too much WHP, especially at 18psi like you said. Most highly built boxer 4 cylinders need 25-30psi even on a big gt40r turbo to make 600whp. So 18psi on a simular turbo would only yield soemwhere in the 400whp range.

    Exactly! 2800lb 400awhp. That is about a 12sec car in the 119mph range. Fun run I would have stayed ahead if I hadn't had to video, drive, and shift. Missed 3rd like a jackass.

    "so much awhp" doesn't look like that. That wasn't very fast. Looked like maybe a mid to high 12s car.

    Not a chance. I thought I would destroy him. I raced the guy that tunes all the wrx's in Tulsa. I had him by a couple lenghts. That was a tuned up STI that ran 12.4. This thing was just a wrx. That's why I thought I'd have him. It was way faster. High 11's or 12 flat. The guy that ran 12.4 had an interior and radio and seats. This thing is a rocket. A bud just got the new SS. Which I have beat w/3 people in my two seater vs him solo. So hopefully I get him and the wrx on vid and I don't miss a gear. I just walk I don't talk. 12.7 997 Carrera in my rearview. I love cars of all kinds. I work for GM.

    a 400awhp AWD car weighing only 2800 lbs is a mid 11s car no question. A curb weight wrx is 3100 lbs, -300 lbs is a lot of weight gone.

    You know whats funny about subarus...how all the 2.5L engines go through head gaskets every 60-80K miles. Biggest pieces of shit in the world.

    I got one coming in to do this weekend that had a new motor put in a year and a half ago (first one blew up, go figure) and it already needs head gaskets again. Cylinder misfires and pouring oil out between the heads and block is never a good thing.

    yeah i know a guy who bought a wrx... tried wrapping a couple of shitters on snow (they're a rally car, right?) and a rod started knocking like a sum-bitch. new engine time. replaced the engine, then the tranny went.

    Really, my buddy had a 2002 WRX Wagon before he had his '09 STI. The car had full bolt ons and upped boost and ran mid 13s in the 1/4 mile easy. When he sold it the odometer read 146k miles. All he ever did was put oil in the thing. No mechanical failures.

    How is it that ever import that comes into your shop is a leaking hunk of shit? Probably if it was taken care of like a normal person, and not some kid, it wouldn't be at your shop in the first place. I've seen some piss poor LS1s that weren't taken care of... shame...shame.
