As usual, the mags have the figures skewed. I'll lay money down that with the same drivers, a stock LGT will beat a stock WRX in every straightline category. What is this 4500 rev limit that is being spoken of? Someone has some misinformation.
Having owned one of everr vehicle Subaru offers in the sports line (yeah..including a Spec C) I think I can speak from an area of decent knowledge.
