because there gearing is so that they get off the line hellova quick but there top end is so much lower than skylines plus our cars only really come into there own after 90 mph mate.

been there on a race track i could not catch a 400 bhp evo but once i got into a straight i passed the evo no problems as it topped out around 145/150 whereas mine keprt going:)

plus our cars are heavy so it does not help the standing start acceleration

You should try taking your handbrake off...lol
On a serious note tho, you should easily be able to keep up with them, especially from a rolling start !!!!

Maybe its down to your driver style, being to aggressive will just make you go sideways rather than straight quickly, also how the car is set up is very important.

Power is nothing without control.

Mate even GTR's struggle. Its all about the weight, Torque curve and as R33PER has mentioned the gearing. Skylines have longer ratio's than impreza's as they were built for circuit and touring. Gimpreza's though have rally heritage and are highly gay.

My partner in crime has a 330 bhp evo4 and mines around 320-340, he is always gonna be quicker in the twistys as is 200kg lighter to start with, closer gear ratios mean quicker out of the corners and obviously a rally derived 4wd system, at the end of the day the skyline is a drivers car in my opinion, the evos and scoobys of this world are 4 people with little 8--
