To each his own though.
Actually, I've been meaning to ask, do you actually see that 4.8s in the real world? I had heard that it required a dead start, dropping the clutch, and perfect shifts to obtain.
cool.

yea, i'm definitely seeing that. my car is definitely faster than that now. a few mods and you're driving a fire breathing dragon.

the reason i bought my WRX instead of waiting for the ST, i paid 25,200 out the door for my car. it has insane street performance and where do we drive all our cars, on the street. so it made the most sense. its also insanely safe, has great options, an insanely good aftermarket. it seemed to make the most sense. i drove my car the first time and it absolutely blew my mind.
