My buddy just bought the new 2010 Subaru Impreza WRX STI Special Edition and wants to meet me at Car's and Coffee this next Saturday. He just picked up the car today and my guess is he is going to want to make a few runs side by side. I running close to stock so my guess is it will be pretty close at the end of the quarter. How does the stock Mustang compete with a stock Evo or an STI?

Sorry about that guys... I pretty much expected everything you said and can't imagine the 1/4 miles to be more than a car length either way. I was just wondering, thanks.
you'll be able to pull on him from a roll for sure, due to the '10 gt's trapping 105 in the 1/4 mile stock with a 5 spd. those evo's and sti's are gonna get you off the line every time unless the driver sucks. from a roll would be better race, awd is terrible from a roll. don't think they trap much more than 102-103 in the 1/4 stock.
Ain't it a shame when guys with RWD are worried about dig races and want to go from a roll like a ricer.

Honestly, I don't think AWD is any better from a dig than a RWD, not on dry pavement anyway. It can go either way depending on drivers, imo. An AWD car can bog down just as easily as a RWD car can light up the tires. With that said, the STIs are quick SOBs. I'd say the OP has his hands full with this one.
I just drove a '10 WRX(which some mags claim is even faster than the STI) and it impressed me! It was dead until 3k but boost came on very strong after that until redline and it pulled really hard in first. The other gear were pretty decent too. For some reason when I banged gears it fell on its face.....maybe I was hitting the redline fuel cutoff?
