    Small run with a 2019 wrx....

    Soooo....a coworker was driving in front of me one morning going g to work. When he turned right , after a stop sign, he started to accelerate somehow saying "let's see what your Kia can do". Well...I was happy to oblige. At this point he was already 5 cars ahead of my and I was in 2nd gear. I floored it and the gap started to get smaller and by 3rd i really caught up to him and was passing him. But by then we had to slow down since we had to turn in to our work's parking lot. Needless to say, i can smoke him of a rolling start. Off the line....remains to be seen. Proud of my sxt.

    Not to give a negative reply, but the 2019 standard WRX is only 268HP stock, not much HP to brag about when a Focus RS was produced with 350HP, or maybe move up to a STI (305HP) or the S209 with 341HP.
    At least you're having fun with the car.
