Default Tell me your 1/8th mile times in stock WRX's?

Going to the track this weekend. I need some good info.

What was your best stock run?

What was your sixty foot? And how did you launch?

What rpm did you shift at?

What was you mph?

Did you hot lap?

Did you cool the intercooler down before the run?

How was the air? Humid and hot? cool and dry?

Tire pressure? If you can remember that.


Sorry for all the questions. I just want to make sure I get all the information I need to get a good solid baseline run to go on.

Thanks for the help.

At out local 1/8 mile track the stock WRX's are running in the 9s. Depending on driver skill some run low to mid 9s and others mid to high 9s.
I watched one the last time at the track run 9.4 with a bad 60' time. It was bone stock. With a better 60' time he should run easy low 9s. That would be a low 14 sec 1/4 mile.

You should be able to pull sub 2.0 60' times in a stock WRX. An experienced driver with a 5k launch will pull easy 1.8-1.9 60' times even in a stock WRX. Thats how you run low 14s in the 1/4 mile in a stock WRX.

When you get to the track let you car sit for about an hour before you race. You can put a bad of ice on you intercooler if you want. My personal experience show it doesn't help all that much. The most important thing is to let the car sit for a while and cool down. Make sure you don't bogg on your first run. Rev it to 5K and drop the clutch and floor it. Shift at close to 7k and don't miss a shift and you shoud be in the low to mid 9s in the 1/8 mile. Usually your first of second run of the night is the fastest. The hotter your car gets the slower it goes so a nice long cool down between runs really helps.

Default If your car is stock . . .

DONT shift at the red-line ! My best time when my car was stock was:-

60' 2.019
330' 5.928
660' 9.209 @ 74.87mph

This was shifting @ 7000rpm-ish (red-line) in 1st to 2nd and then 6750rpm from 2nd to 3rd. I had stock RE92 tires and ran them with about 26psi, I had tried them with up to 36psi but my best 60' times where at 26psi.

I hold the rev's between 4500 and 5000rpm then lift up on the clutch allowing my foot to stay on the pedal but with little or no pressure on the pedal. At the same time I floor the gas, this allows a small amount of clutch slip and can normally get the wheels to spin for about a 1/2s, this got me 1.8s 60' with an MBC, if your timeing is off you will bog. But just try again its not hard to learn.

Stock WRX here in my town ran a 9.0 flat with 2.0 60'. I believe at 76 mph. He's an excellant driver. I ran a 8.9 @ 78 with uppipe and boost controller! Obviously I suck! Hehe.

Stock with K&N drop-in and rolling on 17" Rota Attacks shod with 225/45/17 in. Falken Azenis in high-humidity Honolulu (am told by the mainland "folk" that our track is ~.3-.5 slower than what they're used to seeing - I hope I can use that as an excuse! )

60' 2.079
1/8 e.t. 9.618
1/8 mph 70.63

60' and 1/8 e.t. aren't too bad (IMHO) - but that only equated to a 15.105 @ 90.11 in the 1/4.

I tried to slip the clutch as best I could (without getting a "burning smell" and held every gear to redline. Never got it into 4th, but I have a feeling if the car spun the tires at all in the beginning that I would have had to shift into 4th at the end of the 1/4...

BTW, you might find this 1/8 mile e.t. to 1/4 mile e.t. calculator handy:

It pegged my 1/8 to 1/4 e.t. almost perfectly (off by .01!!)
