    I would suggest looking in the "WRX vs. the World" section.

    What kind of race? Ice, Snow, from a stop, from a roll, road course, drag race, etc. Lots of variable. For the price, nothing out there compares with it's speed, AWD, manaul tranny, and overall functionality.

    The WRX can take a Prius, hands down.

    I think an SRT stock runs high 13s....like somewhere around a 13.8-14 second cars.

    350z stock for stock I beleive is also a bit quicker than the stock WRX 2.0

    Please don't buy a car just because its faster than another car. In a year or 2 at the most there will be definitely be some new faster car (not to mention all the cars that will already be faster than it the second you buy it)and you'll wish you hadn't bought it.Buy a car that you enjoy not one thats going to beat all your friends cars.

    +1, especially if it beats another car by 0.2 seconds - because chances are your times will vary by twice that (if not more) from race to race anyway, especially if you're not on a track - and that's if you're a decent driver.

    oh no.....im not asking becasue of that....i just want the wrx to have a good base...i dont want somthing like a crx...slow as balls at first, then you gotta put thousands in your car to make it fast.......so a turbo wrx would be a good race to a srt4? but in the end the srt4 would win right? but it would be a rapage....im just tryin to get a general idea
