The problem with the stock wrx or close to it is you lose power from about 6500-7k(redline) on the WRX you want to shift about 6500 to stay in the best powerband..Not until you get a better turbo than has bigger lungs can you hold out til redline.BillWS6Formula said:Hmmm, he might not have caught it - he DID have to shift into the next gear afterall ..."redline, redline"... .
So that is why ALL the NHRA and ALL IHRA races start from a dead stop? Knowing how to launch your car is a big part of driving it, not just mashing the go pedal from a roll, that takes no skill at all. It's like that old joke, how much faster is a 500hp Supra to a 700hp Supra, there is none, they both runs 12's.EuGeNiLe GTS said:and the "big boys" like to race from a roll.. no traction issues involved. all raw power!
