I'd be interested in seeing what my 2015 WRX can really do, but I live in Baltimore... So far it's completely stock except for an AccessPort, but I'm sure I'll get more on it eventually. I'd like to see what I can do for 0-60 and a quarter mile, but I'm not interested in getting speeding tickets, either. I've seen the websites for the Capitol Raceway and the Mason-Dixon Dragway, but the websites are frankly intimidating and confusing for someone who doesn't know anything about racing. I've also seen there is a track out by Charlestown, WV, but $179/day for track insurance is steep.
What's the best way to push the car, and perhaps record a time or two, without spending a fortune, driving more than a few hours, or getting arrested?
