    I ran an pre-2.2L (maybe a 2003?) one from 90km/h or so, starting in 3rd. I put a lot of distance on it (3 cars or more.)

    I'm just waiting for a chance to run one on a road course. Hopefully this summer or fall.

The wrx seemed to jump right of the start from 40 and i guess second is just geared really low because there is no way he had time for his turbo to spool up, but by the time he hit third like 3 sec into the race he must have had it fully spooled because he just continued to pull hard up to like 120.
    1) Yes a TBE does a make a decent difference. With a skilled driver it can take off upto .3s in the 1/4 and up a trapspeed by 2mph. Not to mention about 20+whp gain.

    2) S2k is a MUCH better performance car than the RX8. it is faster, traps higher, handles better, etc...
