Well, I surf this thread because I love stis and stumbled upon a bunch of wrx vs speed 3 stuff.
Concerning the magazine quarter mile quoting, I usually see faster wrx times (due to the AWD). But someone put the wrx in the range of 13.8 and car and driver post the 2010 speed three at the same. Just saying.
Like many have already said, the wrx from a dig, and speed 3 from a roll.
Though when it comes to handling in dry weather, speed 3 FTW...unless ur talking sti... Then it's close.
