I don't know, the limited number of tests I've seen for the LGT are a few ticks faster along with a better trap speed. "Real-world" time slips are showing they may sneak in the high, high 13.xx range like the Forester XT.

On the subject of the Forester XT, folks think that is faster or about the same as the WRX?

Anyway, getting off-topic... The Stage 2 comparision would be interesting. Would be nice to have a Soobie day at a track and get all the turbo models there in various states of tune, from mild to wild. Be neat to see.

Those have to be some of the slowest times I've seen, even most noobs to the wrx on here run those times. I don't think these guys that tested the wrx know how launch it.

Although I don't know if there is any real change between 02/03-04/05. I know the ECU mapping change, I wonder if this change anything.
