WTF??!! you're kidding right?
unless the WRX is driven by a dog, it will kill both cars. As far as you and the 2.5L impreza, it will be close.

Wait a second a WRX yeah thats out of a stock mx6's league but a impreza rs? The thing is underpowered and has alot more drivetrain weight to spin. Maybe on just a launch but in anything else a mx6(v6 mtx) would beat it.

A friend of mine told me that the WRX does 0-60 in 5.3 sec. He's a salesman at a Subaru dealership, and he wasn't trying to sell me anything, so I believe him. I saw a brand new one at a 4-banger competition at GLD and it was running low 14s.

I raced my buddy who had an rs impreza (the car has since had a run-in with a tire-barrier...etc on a rally course...and is no longer with us) , and he didn't beat me.

i don't even think the WRX goes 60 mph anywhere in the five sec. area. more like low 6's if i remember. they have some serious turbo lag just plain stock. who cares anyhow if it'll still whoop up our cars

AutoWeek and Car & Driver have both achieved 0-60 times of 5.8 seconds in WRXs. As for the RS, it has a 165-hp boxer 4, which ain't far off the 2-gen in power. I believe they run 0-60 in the mid-8s, owing to weight + frictional losses of the AWD system. Since I've yet to see any magazine anywhere test a non-WRX Impreza, though, don't quote me on that figure :eek:
