    Oh, okay. Just so you know an F-body is a Camaro or Firebird.

    I've never heard a fox body called an f-body. F-bodies exclusively point out Camaros and Firebirds. These f-bodies have been around since long before fox bodies as well.

    Neither have I, but perhaps someone decided to shorten the name in his area.

    Yea, not trying to sound stupid, but thanks for fillin me in. Like i was sayin though, subys arent the best cars for straight speed. Maybe 1/8s but not a highway racer though. Id get a camaro or trans am, but i wanted an AWD turbo, and i always liked wrx's. So i was sold on them.

    I love Scoobies, no doubt. But the gearing isn't really for the highway, as perviously stated. But I don't fancy 130 mph jaunts myself! I keep her around town mostly and on the interstate she gets to 70-75 and just cruises. If I could have a second car right now it would be a Subaru.

    Some Subarus do just fine on the top end. They just have a more impressive 1/8th due to traction.

    I doubt I'll have any complaints about my car's straight line speed when I get it back in a few weeks. Then when it gets boring I'll add a meth kit and crank it up a little more.

    Check out the Legacy GT vs. Camaro thread in this section. One guy's Legacy spins the tires from a 3rd gear roll thanks to 580 whp. It should trap at over 130 mph in that configuration. The 2.5 has great potential.

    No doubt. You can make power with anything. So when you have a nice set up like the 2.5 its gets fairly easy! I've just heard the gearing is set up more close ratio. Its my understanding that they aren't a top end car. Not to suggest they can't do 150, but that 170 to 200 might be asking a lot of the stock gear ratios.

    True, but I don't even pretend to want to do speeds like that anymore. I like to stay both alive and out of prison!
