In a 1/4 mile race which car wins? Heard this little suckers run 0-60 in 5 seconds :eek: , One was teasing me the other day but traffic was real bad, want to know what are my chances just in case I run to this punk on the Freeway :D

The STI will dust you. I own a mostly stock WRX and a stock 300C. They run about even.

Have you race them in a 1/4 mile?? I think the STI will beat the 300c off the line, because it's lighter, but the C has more Torque power that will kick in down the stretch. Just my 2cents. What do you guys think?

stock sti's run 13.5, at least every one that i have seen. i knoe that there is not any chance for the 300c. besides, there are only a select few sti owners who keep the cars stock. i have a buddy that has one and all he has is an exhaust and boost controller, and he is in the 12's. they are alot meaner than you think.

street racing is bad... mkay

No 1/4 mile races yet. Just a few 0-50 or so runs one night. Torque gets you going off the line.......

The other thing to think of is that in a real world situation, you might not get the same 0-60 or 1/4 mile time as they post or porfessionals get.

With an automatic in the 300C it's much easier to get close to those times. When you get in a WRX or even an STi, they are manual trannys and from the friends who have them, they are very quick, but I know they can't drive them. Hell, I can't either. Maybe after some training or a ton of practice, you might get close.

But in a real world contest, I just push my foot to the floor, they are shifting at the wrong places. Makes a real world street competition between novices much closer.

But I agree, with a good driver behind the wheel, those WRX's would be even if not faster.

But who wants to spend all that money for no torque and ride around in a thin sardine can? :)

And if you really want to smoke a WRX STi, or a 300, just spend the $7K and buy any cheap sport bike. Most of those 0-60 times are in the 3.0 second range or better.

Well put DB, real world is important and many of these 0-60 and 1/4 mile times the pros get are an high rpm launch, if you don't nail it you get smoked. The best clue of real world performance is the 5-60 time, my previous RX8 had a 5.9 0-60 with an 8000 rpm clutch drop, the 5-60 time was 7.5, very telling of no torque. A high rpm launch is not easy without lots of practice an a particular car, the mash and go in an automatic is foolprof. If the guy has any skill, hope he misses a shift, on a few cars, it's only a 1-2 shift to 60, most require a 2-3 shift to reach 60 and this is where you hope he fumbles the ball.

How about a Regular WRX?????

What about a regular WRX none STI?

I have a buddy that is always talkin S#*% and says he can woop me. Im not a racer but I talk my own Sh!^ balk to him. Plus I tell him that even if he could beat me he does not have all the fancy things I have on mine, like Nav, "leather", park assist, Sirius, etc... And that his car hasent won half of the awards that my "C" has :D .

What are the 1/4 times of the 300C?

O.K. these little suckers are indeed fast & might smoke the 300c on the 1/4, now my ? is, how about on a longer stretch of road, lets say an empty freeway at 4:00am and we go at it, who will smoke whom?? Open country & all out!!! :D

But I didn't buy a sports car....I bought a luxury, roomy sedan that happens to be a rocket. I could have bought many a sports car for less money and less room. When I was younger, I loved small sporty cars, but now I love big roomy, plush cars. I've had a couple of Lincolns and can't seem to go back to a small car. I guess my taste have change now that I'm a little older. I wish my 300C had a softer ride over rough roads but it wouldn't have the fine handling characteristics either. The looks of the 300 is simply stunning! You can compare my 300C to just about any car, but I can't afford a BMW 7 series and have no desire to own a small Subaru or Mustang. The biggest hang-up people seem to have about this car is that it's a Chrysler....get over it! Cadillac IMO is the only domestic automaker that is making gorgeous cars and they are considerably more expensive than my Hemi.

don't discount the 300c :)

I have both a WRX AND a 300c. In stock form..my WRX would have gotten KILLED by the 300c. As it stands now, the 300c doesnt have a chance at any speed..HOWEVER, my wrx now smoked an sti on a roll by 4 to 6 cars on the highway...my 2 cents is that the 13.3/13.4 times ure seein on the STi are HEAVILY skewed bc these things LAUNCH like a bitch with a 5000rpm clutch drop..i ran within 3/4 of a car length with a 2004 GTO 6 speed with my 300c ..that car does 13.5 13.6 or so but the trap speeds are 104 to 105..my guess is that the GTO would beat the Sti on a roll..that bein said, id like to run into an STi myself..it'd be a lot closer than you'd think... ive got a stage 2 jetchip, airaid intake, and poweraid tbs. ..more mods comin soon :)

STI is your winner!

Can't say to much on the STI 50-80 run. Don't attack me, but I think that a 300C would get the jump at that point. From a dead stop the 300C is toast, from a roll now, we're talking a different game! ;)
