And you'll only pull on an Si for a short period of time. That hi-revving engine and VTEC will eat you in a 1/4.

Current - 08' Subaru Impreza WRX (371 AWHP @ 15PSI)
TOTALED - The FIRST Release Series 5.0 on this block. Recognize.

R.I.P. George/Suprman, your memories and words will live on forever.

Torque will allow you to beat the Si in an 1/8th.

But what AK said. He'll take you in a quarter. Horsepower AND he can pass you in 2nd gear once you've moved onto 3rd haha.

IDk depends on the driver, I had a SI barely keep up with until late 4th, thats when his HP advantage took over

RIP George a.k.a Suprman

thats what im thinking, i know if i drive it right i can take the Si off the line cause its slow as sh*t until the vtech kicks in.

im also waiting a little bit to race cause this is my first stick, im gotten it pretty much down path. im just practicing getting on it a little more here an there so i can get the feel of it, i dont wanna screw my sh*t up
