    It's tough to race when the functionality quotient of the two cars is < 2 operable.

    Is Zach's car off the road?

    The other problem is that, still being newlyweds, Zach has great incentive to let his wife win.

    Too many variables for a true scientific test (cause car races are always 100% scientific!)

    His car isn't exactly off the road...it isn't exactly tearing the road up either. It's kinda in car purgatory.

    I spent a whole week test driving both a 2014 speed3, then the 13 WRX.

    From my butt testing, the speed3 launches quicker because it has more torque. The speed feels like you are going way faster than you are, and gets squirley under full boost. It feels like it loses a lot of power as rpm's go up.

    The WRX is smooth as you already know. But without a stage 1 map, I think the speed3 would take the WRX off the line, and end up losing 1/2-3/4 of the way down the track. With a stage 1 map on the subie, the speed3 would not have a chance.

    In the end, I got the WRX and am very happy.

    I have a 2011 stage2 hatch. I had a MS3 following me and we go lucky to run at a stop light. He had stage 1 and I destroyed him off the line. We then did rolling at 30 MPH and he stayed with me for a bit but I ended up ahead. He had a CAI and HUGE aftermarket TMIC. Hope this helps.

    The crappy drag strip thing doesn't hold water, places like that are obligated to make the racing surface safe otherwise they'd be out of business. No time to be scared, go to the strip and settle/answer the question ... which is faster.

    Once you do it you may realize just how much fun you can have at your local track. The one near me has a "tune & test" every thursday during the spring/summer months. Some of the most fun I've had has been racing motorcycles & cars there. Ran a 10.66 @ 131.2 on a '91 Kawasaki ZX-11 back 1992, fastest thing I've driven at a track.

    If you lose, so what. Someone out there ALWAYS has something faster than you, just the way life works.

    I walked the surface at Norwalk before running my car. It was so sticky that my feet literally came out of my shoes. I decided then that I was just going to slip the clutch a bit or risked breaking something. Some guy in a new GTI busted something at the line and had to be pushed off..

    Because when the speed limit says 45 it really means 50-55
