    2011+ WRX 0-60 at altitude

    Hi All.
    Does anyone have 0-60 times of a stock or stock-ish 2011+ wrx at altitude? I'm in Denver and trying to get an idea what these guys do 0-60 at a mile high.
    Thanks

    I think there's less parasitic drag up there, but also less oxygen. I would be surprised if it varied more than .2 seconds. Also, I don't think many people other than the professional drivers that magazines employ can match a 4.6 0-60 on a stock 2011 WRX. They run it multiple times, figuring out the ideal launch RPMs, how much to feather the clutch, whether to side step it, etc. to achieve optimal 0-60s.

    Depends on the driver, and whether or not the car is your own.

    Parasitic drag at that altitude is not going to be noticeable, the much lower density altitude is what matters.

    My times are usually around 5.5, but that's with my younger brother timing with an iPhone and me babying the clutch. I'm also running a TP stage 1 tune.
