2011 ss vs. 2013 wrx sedan

I have a 2011 2ss 6 speed with a cai and a throttle body spacer, would a stock wrx 4 door be faster? my brother inlaw says hes getting one and says he'd win in a race lol i dont think so though

Nope you should win pretty easily if you don't screw up. He'll get you on the launch, but you'll reel him in real quickly and pass him.

Unless you race on gravel, snow, ice, or any other poor surface, won't even be a contest.

No way, the 305hp STI is actually slower in the 1/4 mile than the new 265hp WRX due to the gearing. STI is still a mid to low 13 second car at best, stock. The SS has it in the bag on both counts.

If the WRX driver can drive, they can (probably) beat you at launch. It's no contest after ~35 MPH though. You will easily pull away.
Make sure it's not a STi. He will embarrass you at launch if it's a STi. Again, you will eventually pull away from a STi as the speeds go up.

Pretty funny considering whom this is coming from.

I guess that was directed at me. From what I've read here and what I've seen at the local dragstrip (and from my own experience), launching a 6M LS3 Camaro correctly takes skill. Launching a WRX/STi is easier due to its AWD and less power on tap. I'm not saying 2ssblk11 is a bad driver but it will require more skill from him to make the race close initially. As we know, a bad launch (60 ft.) equals a bad ET at the end of the track. Like I said, it's no contest after ~35 MPH.

You only have a chance against a stock one, and even then you only have a chance against a stock one at speeds 40 MPH and above.

This thread is funny btw, I rarely run into people who are that dumb about cars.

no it was directed at his brother in law, for the most part i cannot see a WRX beating at SS at the strip, and from a roll its even worse.

but you gotta put things into perfect world racing. We are talking about what car is faster, not what driver right?

This is coming from a former STi and WRX owner.

The Camaro SS is faster than both in a straight line. The only way an STi or WRX would beat a Camaro SS is if the Camaro SS sits on the line spinning (very bad launch).

With good driving (both cars) this is how the race would go (STi or WRX vs Camaro SS).

STi or WRX gets 1-2 car jump off the line. Around 60mph, the Camaro is starting to catch the STi/WRX and by 80mph the Camaro SS is walking by the STi/WRX and pulling away nicely. By 110 mph, the Camaro SS is several car lengths in front and pulling away hard.

Stock STi and WRX are rather slow above 80mph. A stock V6 Camaro would give a WRX or STi a good race from an 80 mph roll.

Your car would have beat both of those even if you were stock.
