That was a close ass race, i cant believe a wrx has to be modded that much to keep up with the neon.........did i see that race on this site with a stock wrx getting its ass ripped by a neon?

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.

He was a little slow hit the loud pedal but that neon had the power to keep him right in the same spot for much of the race.

and the "big boys" like to race from a roll.. ;) no traction issues involved. all raw power!
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.

If they would have took off at the same time the Rex would have walked towards the end. Also, there is only about 400 bucks in mods on the Rex. Remember the WRX has a highly restrictive exhaust system and the neon has a pretty awesome one stock from the factory. One wierd thing I saw on the neon is the BOV is underneath the car!!!

From a roll: Contest between the car's ability in most cases
From a stop: Contest between the participant's skill levels

Oh, I like to go from a roll in most cases. Much easier on the tranny and clutch.

No way WRX w/ only catback and I/C hoses will hang with SRT4.... especially in rolling race.

i agree that wrx had some mods to hang with it like that. It looks like they started in second gear.
