Can a C5 beat a WRX STI? Me and my friend were having this dicussion, and he said the WRX could easily beat a C5, but he doesnt own one, but may be getting one soon, I told him idk, those LS1's are fast, so who would win???
STi's are garbage. a Corvette of any kind thats newer than like 98(or whenever they switched to the nicer body styles) wont need much road to come back from the STi's launch and put carlengths on it.
i hear all the WRX/STi talk from my buddy. still the fastest one ive seen ran a mid 13 and was heavily modded (huge turbo and cobb fuel management). even his modded wrx could only muster up a 14.2 versus my stock'ish GT's 14.022.
for 30-35k, theres alot better cars than an STi.
