because it's just easier to drive.
In full race conditions the Subaru does offer the all wheel drive which can make drifting the car much more controllable but AWD vs FWD is a long standing debate which mostly comes down to driver skill unless the pavement is very wet/slippery. My other car is P28 Range Rover which has AWD. I can and do drive it very aggressively in terrible conditions because I know it will hook up.

Racing from a roll is too equal and would produce the same result over and over so the suspense is short lived and thus IMO takes the fun out of it unlike at the strip if you have equal cars then it boils down to the drivers and has bigger bragging rigth instwead of impromptu (and illegal) road racing and at much higher speeds than a 1/4 mile race.
I agree the ad is aimed at the Ford fanboy crowd and we'll see how the car does in the real world real soon. I really like the car so I hope it's numbers live up to the hype. I think 0-60 times under 6 seconds and 1/4 mile times in the low 14s.

That clip is obviously meant for lovers of the "Fast & Furious" movies.
It's a shame that Ford's advertising / marketing for the ST is directed toward teenage boys (applies to USA only).

I do agree with you about the LSD issue, there are some reviewers that say the electronic diff does a fine job, while others still pine the performance benefits of a true LSD. I myself would prefer a true LSD, but Ford has made it clear that that would result in increased weight and cost, and whether or not those increases are worth it I cannot say.
Also, apparantly owners in Michigan are starting to get them in already.
