    Dragging my 997 with a Subaru WRX STi

    A friend of mine got a Subaru WRX STi and he wanted so badly drag my 997... I took my digitcam but it was really dark so try to look up for the STi's headlights, and then look carefully to my side mirror... (Didn't know that a "base" 997 would perform anything but "base"...)

    Mike, it's my first car, bought it in 1998, I was driving Zee James Bond Car!!!! WOW!!! got the Z3 Roadster 2.8 not a MZ3 (unfortunately) but I absolutely love it, it's like a go-kart on the road... Anyway there's some pics of my little toy

    Re: Dragging my 997 with a Subaru WRX STi

    I own both cars. My STi is my winter car or camping car. 997S is my daily driver when the roads are free of salt, snow and ice. Best of both worlds and both boxer engines. I love these cars!

    is your C2 tuned??? and from what gear did the race start? because it's a really good result you know...I'm impressed!

    Re: Dragging my 997 with a Subaru WRX STi

    Nice work at the beginning, a sense of mystery when the fun starts. As long as you had fun and didn't take a big chance with innocent lives and property... .

    "The numbers" in the car mags are what people will still rely on to rate their cars.

    No matter what the outcome the P-car gets the most praise and has the most (glamourous?) appeal from the guy on the street.

    No, I didn't tuned my 997 just its pure original power. We start in 1st gear 3500 rpm.

    Re: Dragging my 997 with a Subaru WRX STi

    Be careful, a well tuned STI with bigger turbo's, higher modified turbo-boost, intercoolers, dump-pipe/exhaust, fuel injectors & pump will easily run into the 11's 1/4 mile. They're not that expensive, and there's a handful of older model pre-2000 Rexes that runs 9-10's. Of course standard factory STI's will not outrun a 997 base or S.

    Mike, check out this site http://www.skileb.com/aig/g_picoftheweek.asp?categoryid=3
    So that to get you more confused

    Re: Dragging my 997 with a Subaru WRX STi

    WTF?? (Going to get my Atlas lol!) Maybe Lebanon was soooo not where I thought it is...

    That looks like the Alps! Except it's in the middle east!

    I totally agree...you see my cousin has a Lancia Delta Integrale Evo I tuned to around 330-350PS...for those who aren't from europe, check it out here http://www.supercars.net/cars/2535.html

    anyways..it's got a wider and more free exhaust, external wastegate, bigger intercooler, forged pistons, uprated clutch blah blah blah...one night we played with a 997 C2S from 3rd to 4th and the result was the same with the one you can see in this video only the Lancia was ahead...and we were 4 people in the car!!! while he was alone...so as you can see a tuned rally car can easily humiliate you...I love porsches and supercars in general but it's the reality...no evo scubby or whatever can in no way much the quality, posture and overall perfomance of a porsche or any other upscale car...but nowadays so many products are offered and anyone with around 20k euros to spend can live the thrill of exotic perfomance...sad but true...

    Re: Dragging my 997 with a Subaru WRX STi

    I just noticed that the subject "Dragging my 997 with a Subaru WRX STi" makes it sound like you're towing your 997 with the Subie.
