    you had one? how was it? On the Maxima boards there was always big talk about them, especially for a foreign luxury coupe to run mid 14's with a potent 6cylinder and 6spd manual.

    that car was WAY ahead of its time

    My Legend was a 4 door sedan (auto). It wasn't very fast from a dig but it pulled pretty well on a roll. Nice car with luxury. It was also very expensive to repaire.

    My brother has a Legend as a junker car to get him through college. I've driven it and it definitely can hold off the stock WRX from a roll. It kinda sucks but you have to realize the stock WRX is pretty weak from a roll

    no way. I spanked one when i was stock. he pulled in to a lane that ended after a intersection. semi on my bumper because he could not make up his mind. I floored it. whiped him without trying. he tries to play catch up. get to the next light I just know he was going to do it again so I was ready. I floored it again spanked him off the line with him spinning tires in first and second then I had to turn to go home. so there is no way considering a beat this guy with out even hardly trying. now there more like geo metro with my upgrades

    you guys need engine managment or a turbo back or both, stock WRX looses power after 6300 rpm after reflash that sucker pulls until you let off the gas. I raced a 2002 cl type S and of a dig I had him by about a car and a half as he spun tires, and he was able to pull about a half a car becasue I want to be easy on my tranny and don't shft fast so in between shifts he was able to gain a bit. However till about 85 becasue of an upcomming red light he was not able to pull on me, and I had me and my friend in the car, he was by himself. I checked out the specs and its 260 hp so its no slouch. Stock WRX is impressive for about a week but you soon find out its not that fast.

    WRX from a roll is weak... 15 sec 1/4 mile cars can and have beaten WRX's from a roll. Take away the AWD and the WRX ~ 15.5 sec 1/4 mile. Stock RSX Type S i raced a while ago from a roll with Turboback and Up-pipe would've beaten me if I were stock... it was that close. Its sad since off the line the car was destroying Mustang Cobra's. (90's non supercharged versions)

    Since you like to race people like that, you need to mod your WRX or sell it for a more powerful car. Its that simple.

    If this counts for anything, I would've passed him if we kept going *ricer excuse* hahaha

    Through 3rd I was gaining, albeit very slowly.
