I've looked, but...there is nothing to be found. I think they are hiding. Other courses they get brake fade after a lap or two. This is a long track. It wouldn't surprise me if they started getting brake fade halfway into the course.

I had a 2006 sti, I know.
One of my best friends has an STI. Damn thing is quick. If I was to get any other car besides the ZL1, might be that or an Audi S6.

On one hand, I love the Camaro. On the other, up here in the Pacific Northwest, it'd be nice to have AWD for some parts of the year.

At the time that video was done the sti was knocking on the gtr's lap time and right at the ctsv. Granted that is the 205 sti via Japan driven by tommy mackinen I think.

Not a big surprise the ZL1 would win, it does have almost double the HP

The newer STi's are known for blowing up the 2.5 motors. I think the older one's not so much.

I also looked at the STI and A6. I still like both cars even though I own a ZL1.

Acutally, I would love to have a WRX for a daily if I could make it work. STI is a little too much beat you to death/weekend race car IMO.

STi's are cool cars. I owned an 04 STI and it handled great in the twisties.

With only 305hp, a stock STi would never stand a chance against most cars (1LE, ZL1, etc) on a track such as the Nurburgring.

Today, I read an article about how the Subaru is going back to the 2.0 Turbo (vs. 2.5 turbo currently used).
The WRX should have close to 300 hp in the near future. Not sure what kind of HP the STi will end up with.

QUOTED FROM ''http://www.caranddriver.com/features...ing-lap-record''

The stickler is that the Subaru in question wasn’t a production car. It was, in the words of the company, a 2011 Impreza WRX STI prototype. The car is basically the bastard child of two JDM-only models with some extra bespoke aero bits thrown in for slipperiness and high-speed stability.

The car starts with the suspension from the improved-for-2011 WRX STI—it’s 5 mm lower than the 2010 model, with 1-mm-thicker front and rear anti-roll bars, higher-rate springs all around, stiffer rear-subframe bushings, and new front-suspension pillow-ball bushings. The engine is the Japanese-market STI spec.c’s, a 2.0-liter turbocharged boxer-four that’s been given the larger turbo from the R205, another Japanese special-edition STI model. It’s now putting out a claimed 320 hp.

The R205 also donates six-piston front brakes and a front strut-tower brace; it features a flexible center portion that allows vertical motion but maintains lateral stiffness. Weight is saved through the use of an aluminum hood from the spec.c, unique aluminum front fenders, the spec.c’s smaller battery, and the deletion of the radio as in the R205 and spec.c.

Extra aero parts specific to this car include a full undertray, a front-lip extension tacked onto the R205’s lower spoiler, and a Gurney flap added—taped, really—to the rear at Mäkinen’s request. (The car was getting a bit out of shape without it in the high-speed sections.) A full roll cage and race buckets fitted with a five-point harness for the driver and a four-point for the passenger make things safe.
