I didn't mention anything about hi/low gear reduction. At least, I don't think I did.

As far as my perceived differences between AWD and 4WD, even AngerManagement said that there is and look how "qualified" he is. In english definitions, a car with AWD is 4WD, but in car definitions, it's not the case. There are many websites you can check that outline the differences. I was not attempting to generalize in any way. I simply have written what I've read. If what I read is wrong, then I apologize.
I was replying to Kerry. But thanks for the input anyway!

Sorry if it came off strong, I was feeling bad yesterday and had to spread the wealth.
Mostly when I see something that isn't quite right I just keep on scrolling and reading, but yesterday I felt nitpicky.
No need for an appology on anyone elses account.

well ive had the fortune and misfortune to run two diferent wrxs one belongs to my brother and the other is a local. to make all this short me and my bro have went from a dead stop and a 25 mph roll. point is as earlier stated . they are beasts of the line but lack as the rpms increase. cant touch him from a stop jumps me by at least 3 cars. from a roll 1 car and by the time i hit 75-80 ive caught him 90 hes history both cars are only slightly modified. the other one i had a dyno day with and is pushing 460 at the wheels totally different beast. yes the wrx is a well built quick car but that does not mean its fast

Just thought I'd chime in here. Car and Driver I believe had the 0-100mph of the two stated as follows:

svt contour- 19.xx
Subaru WRX- 20.xx or 21.xx

I do know that the SVT was about 1.5 seconds faster. Can't remember the exact numbers though.

Umm... no. WRX in 10/01 issue against S4 and 330i went 0-100 in 15.5. Quite a bit quicker.

my bad. I was thinking 0-110mph which would put the wrx a little bit quicker.

Those are pretty good numbers. Its hard to compare those results to the various SVT results since there are too many factors such as altitude/Baro pressure, temperature and humidity. The only good test is a well documented wrx vs svt race to 100.

I know that here in Arizona in the summer it's hard for a stock SVT to match the reported quarter mile results of 15.6 or whatever it is because of heat.
