    in the total picture, 90% of WRX's are raped by SRT's in the 1/4 mile. It would be ricy of a WRX owner to get spanked in the 1/4 repeatedly and then find a way to win with the 60'.

    WRX will always be the better car but let's choose our battles carefully.

    The WRX built its reputation on being a European sports car for European roads. Wanna drag race? Go American.
    I still don't think most drivers out there can handle a drop clutch launch on an SRT-4 without seriously spinning the front tires. I've burned the hell out of the front tires of an Acura TSX when I wasn't paying attention to my revs.

    now on street tires you can come off idle like u leave a stop light, floor it and still spin all of 1st, 2nd and chirp 3rd. in stock form.

    Dear Rabbi,

    What is the definition of "frum" and what determines if you ainít "frum?"

    Dear Yonasan Shapiro,

    Frum is a Yiddish word. It originally meant "pious." In Europe, when all Jews were Torah-observant, "frum" meant one who was exceptionally religious and righteous.

    Today, when so many Jews are not Torah-observant, "frum" has come to mean anyone who believes in the Torah and is observant of its laws.

    Yeah, that was on street tires. I was mainly talking about SRT-4s on the streets, and the average consumer. Most people don't drive on slicks on daily basis, I imagine.

    That's what I thought. For me, I like FWD cars that are small hatchbacks that handle very well with little power. Think GTI, Mini, Focus, that stuff. The SRT-4 is really cool, though, it just wouldn't be my choice if I were to buy another FWD car that wasn't just for Autocrossing (I'd look at the SRT-4 ACR, or a more cost-effective idea, my 5K used Focus ZX3).

    Lancaster's not too far from my normal home, by the way.
