hmmm light? I think that is a blanket statment i.e. what is light? 1800lbs certianly is but 2970 compared to 3085, neither one are going to be the next "Jared" in the subway add. 23,495 base wrx and the neon 19,995 leaves you with 3496 left over to play with. I really think that 2k3 is going to be a great year as a consumer.
I personally have 3 options, turbo my 95 hybrid ls hb, buy a SRT, or a WRX. Just from the small amount of data I have gathered I think the srt will run 14.4-14.7 in the 1/4. remember the big advantage of the wrx is the simple power of AWD, in the neon that is not the case and the neon is putting down very similar times with less traction, does that mean "if" the wrx was front wheel drive the neon would be faster? Who knows and Who cares?
just thought I would add my voice to the many already on this topic.
Please dont be ignorant there are tons of cars moded or not that would kick the crap out of a WRX, your car isn't the ultimate machine and neither is mineWTF? I am from tx we dont get much snow so clear this up for me, do you guys go to the track in the snow? or mabe auto-X in the snow? maybe streetrace in the snow? dam that sounds kind of dangerous.Doesn't matter, we are wrxer by choice. Many more faster cars will But then we can always wait for the rain/snow
