Straight Line racing is overrated... Take it to some twisties.

See ya says the S2000.

I haven't looked at NSX numbers in quite a while, so someone correct me if I am wrong.

Does the word stock not mean anything to anyone? You can make a pinto fast in a straight line. Who cares.

just a word of advice, i own an sti and a spec v.

i walk my friends stock wrx from a roll all day with the spec v. mind you i have basic bolt-ons and a short shifter on it, stock for stock from a roll it should be close i mean the wrx only puts down like 175whp last i heard and wieghs more. the spec v puts down 151 stock and is lighter, from a roll where u don't have the awd advantage you'll see it should be right next to you...

your comparing 1/4 mile times, last time i checked 1/4 mile times and traps are from digs, your info means nothing, good try though... were talking about from a roll pal... we no it will **** on it from a dig

So you are saying that my stock Grand Am GT would pull a stock WRX? I don't know man... like I said before, my GAGT with 50k and no tune-up or ANY mods pulled a Spec V from a dead stop 'til we shut it down around 100 mph. Auto vs manual as well.

You have your experience... I have mine. They are very different... I guess thats where it should be left.

Results will vary

Who ever you raced has a blown motor. Seriously, it's not even close. I know from experience [/doding street race filter] I could walk spec V's all day in my GSR. I would then walk my friend's bolt-on GSR's in my stock WRX. You do the math. Sorry, but one account doesn't make it so.

It's like if I walk my friend's z06 in my WRX, does that mean that it is the norm and WRX's walk z06's? No, it means Lucy's got some splainin' to do.

I agree that comparing 1/4 mile times is misleading because of the better start of the WRX. Trap speed should be a good indication of racing from a roll. Earlier, I only posted trap speeds.

Another good indication would be the speed that each car travels from 60mph to 100mph. Again using R&T as the source of information, the SE-R Spec V travels from 0-60 in 7.3 seconds and from 0-100 in 19.3 seconds. It takes the SE-R SpecV 12 seconds to travel from 60 to 100mph.

The WRX travels travels from 0-60 in 5.7 seconds and from 0-100 in 16.0 seconds. It takes the WRX 10.3 seconds to travel from 60 to 100mph.

Using the same methodology, it takes the RSX-S 11.3 seconds to travel from 60 to 100mph. The S2000 takes only 8.7 seconds to travel from 60 to 100mph.

I've raced many Se-r spec Vs (stock and modified) when I was stock and they gave me no trouble at all from a roll.

So what you're saying is since I have Awd and way less whp then the Wrx I should loose to everything from a roll? Well I definatly don't. I have beat a spec v that had an intake and exhaust when i had my intake header and catback. We went from a roll from 40-115 3 times. I also beat my friends Msp and he has a cold air intake and catback. So I'm guessing little civics can beat my car from a roll too? try again.

I was under the impression that from a roll, a stock RSX-S would pull on a WRX... moreso on the high end starting in 3rd gear?

3rd gear owns all in an Rsx-s, even Ferrari's. I frequent a lot of boards and club rsx is one. All they do is say how godly the type-s is and how they make some outrageous claims to cars they beat from a roll. All they do in wrx stories is say how they beat them from a roll then say "the awd system is so heavy and with our 3rd gear the awd drivetrail loss we can beat them." Little do they realize gearing plays a big part in why we can still beat cars. We are geared for low end power (aka 1-4 gears) anything after that is where our drive train loss is actually gonna come into play. So yes eventually the rsx will catch the wrx and pass it, but that will be past 100 mph and honestly if I actually do race that's where I stop because anything l faster then that is just dumb.

Last time I ran a Honda S2000 was in my 02 WRX with a vf30, TXS TMIC, Injectors...yada yada (290whp). In any case his car "looked" bone stock! No exhaust no other features. Neck and neck race until i hit 4th gear. He said bye bye....i said, "what's wrong with my car!?"

Needless to say I found out the hard way that the only thing he had was a vortech supercharger and fuel pump.

S2k's are no joke on top, but off the line is another story. I would love a 9k redline though.

Yeah, there is a guy that I worked Mazda Rev it up last weekend. he is a co-owner with his dad for tech 2 motorsports and does a show on speed vision every tuesday night. He's a really cool dude. He has an S2k with comptech super charger and some other goodies. He's putting out 360 hp and around 200 tq. Yeah it's fast but I love tourque. It's actually in the may issue of Super Street if you wanna check it out.

yeah, the SC makes sense. With a VF22 they are cake from rolls. It isn't even close. But, we're not talking about modded vs modded, we're talking about stock vs stock so I'll sit down now.

I know it's stock v. stock, but i'm just bringing up the story. The topend on a Stock S2k compared to a stock WRX has to be much better with the redline so high. RSX-S no competition.
