WRX TR. (track ready)








:D


It's first victim was a C6 Corvette earlier today. I had a car length on him the entire time. :D


I don't normally street race, but I couldn't help myself.

Does it run on regular or super unleaded rice??? LOL Yeah Most corvettes are totally shit for the cash. My dad had this one guy with an 80's shitty Pontiac Fiero come in and spent about 3k on the drivetrain. Its funy to se a turbocharged Fiero kick the shit out of a bunch of Vettes, Camaros, and Mustangs.

Money can make anything fast. Only problem is taht when you put that much strain on parts.....they tend to give out so very quickly.

What's the difference between track ready and plain vanilla WRX?

The difference is the aluminum trailing arms, no 6 cd changer, different seats, no painted mirrors, and no foglights.

No offence brucelee, obviously I love Subarus as I originally came here from i-club, but if you beat a C6, something was wrong and or the driver sucks monkey balls. They will smoke an STi, let alone the 'normal' breed wrx or tr. Car and Driver rated the C6 with a 0-60 of 4.2sec and a 1/4 of 12.7sec. The fasted WRX they've ever tested was an '02 with a 0-60 in 5.4sec and 1/4 in 14.5sec, and the '06 WRX they tested hit 60 in 6.0sec and the 1/4 in 14.7sec. Love your car though. All black TR FTW!

Not that he needs it (that's a schweet car no matter what) but in Bruce's defense, it's all on the driver. If the driver doesn't know when to shift or how much throttle to give when they should, then the car is pretty much armcandy. I field race (kind of a ******* sport, I know) and the biggest lesson I learned from that is: The driver is more important than the car 90% of the time.

I couldn't agree more. That's why I didn't doubt that it happened, just said that since it did is was either a faulty car, or more likely, a faulty driver. Regardless, I love those new TRs. For the same reason I have always liked the EVO RS; the TR is getting the WRX line back to where it was in the first place: bare bones near-rallye cars. The fully loaded STis and MRs make no sence to me. For $35+ I'll just buy a year old C6 or C5 Z06 and have my self a real sports car, not an econo box artificially inflated with fancy doo-dads. A $22k car that will smoke Zs, RX8s, RSXs, etc. on the other hand makes my mouth water.

My 70 Nova SS does pretty well at 0-60 in 5.3 seconds. Considering I have under 7k in the car I say thats pretty damned nice. If I can ever afford to feed it fuel again the baby 360ci small block is coming out and my 468in sitting on that stand is going in.
