Not too bad and a stage 2 wrx usually is around that...I used to eat vr6's, type r's..things of that nature. I could keep up w/ a stock gt mustang. Don't think they are slow...The new ones from a roll are pretty nasty too..
I agree with you to a point there.....I owned a 98 maxima se and for a sports sedan that car was awesome...had the sweet bose so you could crush accord v6's as you listened to tunes in comfort...but i don't think my maxima could have hung in ANY way with my 02 stage 2 wrx.....that car was a full second faster in the quarter (mid 13's vs mid 14's).....even with an intake on the maxima the S2 wrx would walk it pretty hard.....i had many 00-02 maxima's try my old wrx on the highway when i lived in NY and they all got walked pretty easily. Maybe the newer ones with 260 would make it a better run but a 98 maxima vs a Stage 2 02 WRX would see the nissan watching tailights....that's my opinion based on owning both cars
