    yeah but at 70mph the WRX has about two seconds of acceleration left.
    embattled, we prevail...only victory exhaled.

    But the Mini isn't exactly an aerodynamic marvel either.

    Sad to say, but our WRX's are no longer faster than most cars like they used to be. The only thing left for us is our launches. A lot of the cars are trapping more than ours, and we will lose to these cars from a roll. i.e. accords, avalon's, maxima's etc. Even the current batch of pocket rockets.
