Yeah they're idiots, that's not the first time they've done that fob on roof thing... Even though they only got one day of lapping, I don't think the times would have improved to say Mazdaspeed3 times, which was 5 seconds faster. But other than the diff and overboost, they had only good things to say about the ST. Most neutral handling FWD car, so much so that they could drive it like a RWD car. And they kept using that word that I keep hearing in ST reviews: fun.
