thespraint no offense i never intended to say you dont know how to drive ,the point i was making clear was if you where stock? i guess i was right on to bd1 come to San Juan Puerto Rico and mess arround with the vw clan and you will have to hide for several years not all of them are fast but boy some of them really are so dont be a fool to think that a wrx will never be defeated w a vw because it will happend and belive me ive seen it happend

It is the driver. Remember its what's inside that counts, which included what's inside the passanger compartment

embarrased to be smoked by volkwagen? that new GTI golf is quite scary... it's doesn't say golf on it, just an emblem of a rabbit.

I beat a ws6 because the driver sucks =\ anythings possible basically way to many factors to incorperate in every race. Theirs ussually alota variables to think about unless one car is just grand master pimp

Those VR6's are nice. My dad has the GLX, and it is fast. Granted, I've never driven a Wrx, so I can't really compair, but they are heavier compaired to my Outback, far from compairable handling, and they peal out easyily if you're too quick on the pedal.

Personally, I'm not surprised you got smoked by one. My pop's is all stock and it if still a whole lot of fun to drive, but would never I pick one over a Subaru. What's the point of all that power if you're afraid to lose traction? =)

20 hp +AWDrivetrain loss+ terrible gearing= you losing to a car with 2wheel drive and exceptional gearing. i'm not suprised at all.

also, a WS6 is slower than a transam, IIRC.

:D

Stock WS6 is around the STi speed I believe at 0-60 in 4.7. Thats pretty fast for a stock car.
