    Vs 2016 WRX

    Anyone ever do any roll racing with a stock 2015/16 wrx? Its apparent that the wrx will beat us 0-60 because of awd launch but curious how our FiST do in a roll race against these. Also looking for some inspiration as a kid down the street recently bought a new base WRX and has been bashing my FiST saying "it's just a fiesta."

    Yes, it is "Just a Fiesta", that's cheaper to buy, cheaper to own, gets better gas mileage, more fun to drive, and car of the year 2014.
    A WRX with the "Sport package" is $33k MSRP (not even the STi)... The loaded FiST is $26k. That $6k for UPGRADES!

    I'd suggest you find more mature people to converse with.

    That aside, I was essentially asking if people have had experience roll racing with these things, and if so how did it turn out?

    I had a roll race with one....but to be honest, I'm not entirely "stock" as I do have the Turbo Transformer installed. That said, from a roll, I was able to slowwwwwwwly pull on away from him with 2 people in my car to just him in his car. I would say the race was from about 40 - 100 mph.....

    We ended up pulling one nice evening, from 40 I pulled on him about 3/4 of a car length until we hit about 100, by 110 he was passing me

    Yep, our FiSTs start sucking wind after 100mph.

    I'm probably going to try some 0-60 and maybe 0-100 at the next track day. Will keep you all posted. By the way, I have to back off around 100 as it just keeps on pulling!

    I'm sorry, I just got a chuckle out of this. It's a Fiesta that "keeps on pulling" :-) True and impressive as it is, for what the little car is, I'm just so used to using that phraseology in reference to high(er) horsepower, true hot rods. Just an observation. Look fwd to your updates...
