My 240SX vs a WRX wagon (video)

http://flohtingpoint.net/racevids/240.wmv

This was my first night ever of drag racing. Was bored, didnt have anything to do that friday, so I fed my SR20DET some fuel and took it out to the track. This video was one of my encounters.

Note: I didnt make the vid. It was made by a friend from another board.

lol, a 1 min vid for just some 10 secs huh...what happenned at the end that you got 20 secs of nothing?

Did you make any bets? Cause if not you could've probably made some serious money

and i'll give you lots of credit cause you did it at a track and didn't take it to the streets

I dunno, I didnt make the vid =P

Thx for the credit, I never race on the streets, thats high school kids stuff. No sense placing others in danger cause I wanna see what my car can do. =)

No bets were placed by me, but I'm sure up in the stands others placed them. Brand new WRX vs beat up/slow looking 240, looks like a easy win.

I'd also like to thank you for taking it to the track were it belongs.

So you kicked the WRX's ass, but what was the ET?

Wish I had a scanner =/

Ok, here we go, time slips.

WRX
-----------
RT: 1.25
60': 2.67
1/8: 10.8@66.7MPH
1000: 13.9
1/4: 16.622@79.8

240SX
----------
RT: .778
60': 2.715
1/8: 10.18@75.59MPH
1000: 12.94
1/4: 15.278@95.25

My traction sucks BADLY. I'm running on stock 14 year old suspension and stock 16x6.5 wheels from a 97 240SX SE.

First night out on the track eh? I remember when me and my budies used to go dragging every friday night down at qualcom stadium in San Diego. We raced my friends S2000 and my other friends 98 GSR. The GSR had a 75 shot bottle that we put in, and w/ some azenis that thing was pretty quick. I dont have any of the time slips but they both were running high 9's in the 1/8 mile.

Yeah, I could hear.

Boy, I thought WRXs were supposed to be quicker than that. You schooled that guy.

Seriously that dide in teh WRX can't drive or launch worth shit.

He should be below 2.00 for the 60' and he should also be in the low 14s for the 1/4 mile.

Well since its a wagon its bigger than the coupe and no one said if it was turbo or not o_O. If its NA than its a whole other story. As for grip w/ the 240 you did lower your tire pressure to like 25 lbs right? *every lil bit counts*

the person in the WRX either don't know how to drive or weren't pushing it. Its obviously from the start. The WRX wagon (it is one since its got a hood soop but of course you can just get one and put it in, but what's the point?) is turbocharged. Just like what you found in the WRX sedan with the same HP and torque. AWD should give you better traction starting up but your SR20DET killed it easily. Good job on your side.
