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.

You should be a lifetime member on the ban list.

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.
