Camaro SS vs. 2009 WRX

Anyone care to speculate on how they would match up? I think it would be interesting:

09 WRX

0-60: 4.6
1/4: 13.5

Two very different cars.
Yes, the 0-60mph and 1/4 mile times are close. But the Camaro SS is significantly faster at higher speeds. Once you get up to about 80mph, the SS will pull away from the WRX like its sitting still.


WRX - 13.5 @ 102 mph
SS - 13.0 @ 111 mph

WRX (0-100 mph) - 12.9 sec
SS ( 0-100 mph ) - 10.5 sec

So you can see the difference.

BAM!

You can also take into account that at least 50% of the owners can't launch the car worth a CRAP! Just read their forums, they even admit it.

sti with more power does 0-60 in 4.8... what makes you think it would be done in 4.6 with the less powerfull variant of the same car?

Chceck out the C&D test, they got the numbers. For whatever reason the new WRX is faster than the Sti in a straight line.

no its not, you run em both stock in the real world and you'll see.


but for the sake of competition, the SS is the car id go with. The new subarus are weak all around.. maybe in the future.

the g37s is more comparable to the lt camaro than the SS....since motortrend only got a 5.4 second 0-60 and a 14 second quarter mile

I think your missinformed.



SS > STi, Evo, G37(s), 370z in 0-anything.

Umm no.

The SS is much faster than any of those cars.

The SS traps at 111MPH in the 1/4, the closest one in your group is still 5MPH slower. Thats buslenghts in a race.

I took a G37 in My Sky Redline, it was very close, but I took it by a nose!

Ok for those not in the know. the new WRX is pretty much better then the STi... unfortunately. I love my 08 WRX.... but the SS wipes the floor with it. The 09 is much the same. on the track the AWD just has too much understeer to keep up. and the Traction Control system is too much like a nanny to let go enough.

Stock Evos and STi's, for example, trap around 100-102MPH. A stock SS traps at 111MPH.

Thats buslenghts in a race.

Where are you getting the 111mph trap speed? From GM or magazines?

I don't see 111 mph.

I wouldn't want to be too cocky in a thread like this. There's bound to be someone on an import forum signing into Camaro5 with a new account to respond. There's plenty of room for all of these cars behind the Camaro at the track. That being said, let's not pretend that the Camaro will win by a landslide. With a good driver and some quality parts, I would be worried about seeing any of these cars at the track. I figure that anyone visiting a track is likely to be packing something under that hood that makes the car worth racing. With that in mind, racing someone's WRX at the track may be a lot more like racing someone's NASA rocket than racing someone's Subaru. It's just something to consider.

I know that I'll show up at the track with an engine bay stuffed with things that GM wouldn't have in there. You've got to be thinking the same thing about the guy in the other lane.

Because the STI has an extra shift point before 60.

You do know a SLOWER car can beat a FASTER car in the 1/4 , the proof is the XXX before the MPH (ie 13.2@105 vs 13.5@110)
You dont get bouns points for a higher trap speed ..

"dang man , look the slower car won must be cheating or something "


Had to give wes a hard time
