    If you bought your WRX simply because it was a low priced turbo car, you bought the wrong car..

    I can't stress this anymore, so many people bought WRX going for that straight-line performance, yet there are so many better straight-line cars than the WRX for less than $20k

    How is the SRT-4 a bargain when an used RX-7 for only $10-12K run 11s with just a few mods.

    I would expect most WRX owners picked the WRX because it has good "all-around" performance, AWD traction, and durability from their WRC program.

    The Neon, which I've driven 2 of them is not even close to Imprezas in terms of quality and reliability. Drop a turbo, some parts, bin and call it a SRT-4. Cool, it's a Turbo'ed Neon, nothing new..

    It's sad to hear and read so many WRX owners feeling they've bought the wrong car...

    WReXnFX,

    I didn't buy my WRX to drag race. I bought it because I wanted a performance car. My wagon carries what I need regardless of weather condition safely, that is it. The benefit of more horsepower and handling is what I call a bargain. The matrix/vibe was the only thing close in price as far as a wagon goes. If I wanted a drag car, I'd buy a Nova, strip it and then run it. I merely stated that Dodge is offering a NEW performance car for a reasonable price which is not the norm. Not everyone has the time to mod out a used car that would double as a commuter. Sure the modded rx may be faster on a straight track, but lets try a curvy farm to market road in the rain and see who comes out ahead. Thats what I'm saying.

    sorry i don't have their times. At my track they rip the time slips in half. Each person receives their half and that's it. I know that one guy ran a 14.5 on his first run ever. And the other guy must have been running low 14's. They are good in the 1/4 mile for a FWD car.

    I went to Moroso this past Wednesday, and I saw an SRT-4 make a couple runs. He dropped his car down to 14.4, but this was like his first time driving a stick on the strip. I give big props to Dodge for stepping up their game in the sport compact category. 1. he was new to driving the quarter and 2. he had 700 miles on it. Beware of them.
