th4e difference between the WRX and tC is like night and day. Much faster. stock for stock the difference in quarter mile times is about 2 seconds. handling in the WRX is much better by far. Not nearly as much sway as the tC. Not to mention the tC has WHEEL HOP! the interior of the was much more appealing but who cares when youre going fast. Now dont get me wrong, the tC has a lot of potental. most of the stage 1 turbo kits for the tc are bringinh the whp up to 250+hp. at that hp range the track times are said to be in the mid to high 13s. theres a couple kits out there right now that are bringing the tC to 280-300 whp on mustang dynos with stock internals. slap on a LSD and some new coilover and sways and you got quite a competitive car. i just be careful runing with ## buddy. the tC can pack a punch if moded correctly.

My cars said to run a 12.8 or so. High 12s but I wont know until I get to track this summer. With proper launch Im sure I can achieve it.

Im not to worried about the TC. Well its not my buddy but dude i run into on way home sometimes and he thinks hes fast. I already put him a few cars behind me on way home but we WERE NOT racing "Admin friendly"
