    Exactly. Car and Driver doesn't f around. They have VERY good drivers who very often get the most out of the vehicles they're testing. I consider myself a fairly talented 1/4 mile driver, but I doubt I could put down a time like that with my WRX my first day with it at the track.

    I've usually found mag times to be slower than my real life numbers, but so many factors go into a timeslip that I've never really payed attention with the exception of e-thuggery bench racing purposes

    i thought there was literally no impreza ever made in 90, 91, or 92


    find me a JDM 1990 wrx to prove me wrong

    I was thinking the Japan-spec WRX was available in either '92 or '93..I'm certainly no JDM WRX OMGHI2U expert.

    I had transplant thoughts as well. ANY WRX engine would make that sub-2000 lb car move.
