This is a discussion on Anyone race the new Acura TL type s yet? within the Comparison: WRX vs World forums, part of the Community - Meet other Enthusiasts category; anyone?...
yea, from a stop light, it was a easy kill. 2+ car on him by end of 3rd gear
not sure if it was the new one though but it was a tl- s
when i go i want it to be like my grandpa
peaceful in his sleep, not screeming like his pasengers in his car
They are decently quick and run with if not beat a stock wrx with your average driver.
stage2 or higher wrx's shouldn't have any trouble though.
I think they are mid-low 14sec @ 100mph or so cars.

They're pretty nice looking. I've seen a few in blue around my area, sex.
Dont the new TL type-S's have like 290hp? Id think you would have to be at least stage 2 in order to punk one.
F-ing paper racing.
I raced a Audi last night in the rain. It was pretty crazy. We were on the freeway. He would pull on me but never made a car length and then I would keep even with him. I don't know if it was an S4 or a A4 but it was quick
The normal TL runs a Low 15 auto to High 14 manual with the engine that was rated at 270hp, I don't think the Type S will be that much faster, they are 286hp and 256tq.

I can't imagine them doing much to a WRX until higher speeds. I went to AOL Autos (lol, i know) and they have an article on the updated TL/TL-S and it says the TL-S weighs in at 3560 pounds. Couple that with all the weight over the front wheels and I don't see much of a problem when it comes to stock vs stock. A stage 2 WRX would eat this thing alive.
