Everyone knows that the Cobra would spank the STi with any kind of street track tire. We've all seen the 12.7s these guys have been putting down with their untouched motors. The truth is the STi is an excellent car, and pretty quick also. However, I was at a local road coarse about a month ago and saw an '03 Cobra spanking almost every other 'street' car on the track except a modified M3. Not bad.... Also note that no car has ever been a considered 'classic' unless it has two doors. Can you think of one? I can't. Also, what's with the snorkel on the STi? It looks like a submarine or something. I think superjeu could have come up with something better than that. BTW: Freiburger is a writer for Hot Rod. I'm pretty sure he owns a real nice '01 Bullitt that's been featured a couple of times in the magazine.
