u gotta remember though about that 147 to the wheels is for all FOUR wheels. the 160 for the prelude is to TWO wheels. course i put out around 185-190 at the wheels stock and a WRX can kill me. the WRX could take the lude possibly.
The honks had nothing to do with the start...as w0rdie explained in his original post where the video was "debuted" on *************.com (i'd provide a link, but since they charge for membership to view pages there, it'd be pointless for me to) that the guy from the wrx couldn't hear the horns (if that makes any sense...) and the passenger counted to 3 on his fingers before they both went.
In addition, the wrx didn't want to run again until he modified his car more, so i think it's unfair of you all to say that he cheated just because you have preconceived notions of how fast those cars are....w0rdie's prelude is really FAST for a prelude SS, give him a little credit when he wins
dude. He so cheated. Just as you hear the honk, you hear the nos kickin in. Which means, the lude had the headstart. IMO, the bugeye would haf probably pared. If both were stock, the rex would haf eatten the lude. I know, cause i've seen it happen. I'm in asia, and rexes are a common here. Ludes arn't as common thou, cause over here, they're regarded as all show and no go. An ITR or a CTR would do much better anytime.
