Default Dunno....

I was driving my S2000 today as my WRX is out of commission waiting for a set of axles. If you have both cars to do an A-B comparison you will notice right away that the WRX is so much more forgiving because of the AWD

If you let the ass end get out on the S2000 chances are real good your gonna loop it

I have a chance to take mine to a drift event at E Town this Weds but I know the thing will be impossible to keep in a good drift. I know the WRX sux bad for drifting too but the S2000 has really shocked me with how fast it will get out of control and it doesn't just real itself back in like a WRX

I can tell ya this tho...the S2000 is for sale with 8500 miles on the clock. Got 69000 or so on the WRX and no plans to sell that anytime soon Well unless I can pick up a Skyline...still keep the WRX tho

P.S...I'm picking up a set of axles that were on the ESX car. So maybe having axles that were in the 9's will make my car faster

just to add to this.....i own 2 spec v's along with my wagon and i ran a 15.1 in the spec stock and 14.7 with bolt ons. with the bolt ons the car would pull on a *stock* wrx from a roll. my 03 spec just has apexi exhaust and it would not pull on my stock wagon even from a roll. since turbocharging the spec, i have no problem with most basic modded wrx's except the initial pull from a dig. i love my wagon most though

According to Car-Stats.com, these are the 30-100 mph acceleration times:

Subaru Impreza WRX: 13.5 seconds
Acura RSX-S: 14 seconds
S2000: I checked out the graph on the site. Its 0-30 is 2.3 seconds. It looks like it takes somewhere between 14.5 and 15 seconds to reach 100. Therefor by following the same formula of subtracting times, you find that it performs very near the WRX.

Therefor, the S2000 and the WRX will be going at it head to head while the RSX gets its ass handed to it. I used either 2002 or 2003 years for each car. The WRX was no the sti times. Go check out the site, it has lots of car times there.

Prime example: my roomate put the generic t3/t4 turbo kit w/ fmic on his late 90's civic hatchback. After some aggressive tuning he made about 40whp more, definately felt faster.... it just wasnt. I'm not suprsied the RSX wasnt that fast. Also: VF22- top end? Come on, time to get a GREEN
My Next turbo is going to be a garrett a.r. 70 with twinball bearings

Huh, that surprising he made that little amount out of a DOHC. I thought if it had been a SOHC it might have been one thing. Oh well, better luck next time.

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.
This is the voice of reason. Solid numbers from a reputable source.

WRX - 10.3 seconds
RSXs- 11.3 seconds
S2000- 8.7 seconds
specV- 12.0 seconds

If you can walk a WRX in a SpecV, then he must've forgotten to downshift.
