    So, I went to the drags in SD last night. Pretty cool, nothing really worth talking about except this blue 2004 WRX. I haven't really been keeping up w/ suburu and the new models... Is there an '04 WRX and an '04 STI? Or is it just an STI? This one was FAST and had out-of-state plates. (AZ I think? It was kind of a blur... :p ) My question is - Are the new STIs out yet? Is this what I saw? How much HP? (This guy smoked EVERYONE he ran. I think he was pulling like 8 something at like 94 MPH on the 1/8th mile) Just kinda wondering...

    Sorry to post twice in a row, but the more I think about it, that camaro WAS unreal. 6.7 at over 105 mph in the 1/8th mile!!!!! He launched wrong once and lifted so high on his launch that it slammed down and sparked when he hit the brakes. I THOUGHT that red Nova (I think it was a Nova, It was pretty dark) was the fastest car there, untill it ran that camaro. And did anyone see that pearl/cream colored 92-93 teg? 7.2 I think? Good God! Good thing I didn't have to open up my SOHC and show them all who rules!!!! :lol: :lol:

    How the fuck do you quote other people's quotes????? anyway - It was not badged up, in fact, I didn't even see a badge. All I saw was the new headlights, STI wing and FAST timeslips. And the dude was asian. Go figure...

    Car and Driver results for EVO vs STi.

    EVO
    0-60 5.0
    0-100 13.5
    0-130 28.5
    1/4 13.6@101
    Top speed 156 redline limited

    STi
    0-60 4.6
    0-100 12.4
    0-130 24.5
    1/4 13.2@103
    top speed 145 governed

    their curb weights are identical (3260) the EVO is the 2.0L running at 19.5lbs of boost. the STi is a 2.5L running 14.5 boost.

    Road and Track had the EVO in their speed test they also had a drive owith the STi and got imilar numbers for it, but there was some large deviance in the EVO results. The were at Ford's Arizona Proving Ground and the EVO posted 0-60 in 4.59 (to do this required "A dizzying 5000-rpm launch with a gentle feathering of the clutch) the quarter mile was done in 13.08@105.12. the 0-100-0 was done in 16.56 and 0-100 was accomplished in 12.45. from 100 it took 292 ft to stop. (tied for third in the test.. tied Z06, Viper SRT10 and Mosler MT900 Photon beat it.) top speed was of course governed again.
