on the street i say Type S would ruin a modded to stage 2 wrx but on the strip i think the AWD would be easier to work with but still a drivers race

Agreed completely. If you aren't on your ball, then anybody with a decently fast car can take you out. All I'm saying is the 2007+ TL-S is a fast car, whether it weighs 3700 lbs or not, and I believe it will outrun a stock WRX. This is coming from first hand driving experience with both cars. I am not guessing based off of what it says on paper, I have driven the darn thing...a lot.
But in the end, anybody can believe what they want. Next time our TL-S comes home I'll go play.

I agree with ^^^^^
everyone is a little too fanboy on here sometimes. The stock WRX is quick, but the only real advantage it has over other cars is the AWD lauch, and the top end with the td04 is bad especially in the 2.5-- as opposed to a car that has more factory HP and a much better top end. Yes it weighs more, but not that much more.
if you went from a roll in a stock WRX I beleive you would lose, from a dig it would probably be close. Even a stage 2 from a roll it would be a drivers race.
