i imagine it'd be close between our cars. i'd probably get you on the launch (well, if i knew how to launch well) but towards the end i bet you'd start pulling on me. probably all depends on if i get a big enough lead on the launch to last me to the end.
I know how it goes as I've done this before
.....You launch quiet as a mouse with a little chirp of the tires and jump out several car lengths. Meanwhile I'm still at the line making all kinds of racket and whisp of smoke. Once you hit third gear, I am in the middle of second and start to real you in. When you hit 5th gear it's over and my horsepower advantage takes over. If the twisty bits are tight, it's no contest...the Subie. If there are long sweepers it's very close. I've always thought this was an interesting comparison because the cars are completely different, yet at the track the numbers are almost dead even. The lap times in SCCA T2 back this up.
This top gear vid isn't exact as it's not a Scooby, but the baddest Mitsu, and my car handles much better than the VXR(not to mention, anyone can carry a better line)....I think it displays the spirit of both vehicles.
OT enough for y'all? I bet there is a car show, cruise in, etc. going on sometime in May that we could go to. Lemme look around.
