Default Question.

I got my 93 n/a and my friend in his 93 suburu impreza wants to race me. What do u think. he'* manual so i think that he will take me off the line, but do u think that i got a chance? i'm pretty sure that i do, but i'm just checking for back up before i race him.

1993 Subaru Impreza L 10.6 17.9
1993 Subaru Impreza L Wagon 12.7 19.0
1993 Subaru Impreza LS AWD 12.1 18.8

vs:

1993 Pontiac Bonneville SLE 8.6 16.5

In other words, you have him off the line and at the 1/4. Once again, even with the AWD sub, you better than 2 seconds on him at the 1/4. That'* a HUGE difference.

Subaru was almost as bad as Hyundai in the early 90'*. They have improved greatly over the past few years though. Some people say Hyundai has too...I beg to differ...another story.

I gotta give credit to them with their Impreza WRX. That car is quite fast.

the Impreza WRX STi is going to be a beast when it finally gets imported here. That'* one beast that will tangle with the 2003 Cobras and Corvette'* in the speed game

Alot of people think that. It'* only because Paul Hogan advertises them. It'* the "outback" thing. They're japanese.

They're great cars, there is a reason they dominate the world rally circuit, another car to watch for is the mazda RX-8, New and vastly improved rotary enginge, should be something to see
