One of the guys there had a sedan that ran a 14.2 if memory serves.
I don't see the BRZ doing better than that, so I think the accelerate plot favors it too much.
The WRX has a fantastic launch and a low 1/4mi thanks to the AWD... it also has poor trap speeds.
As for the comparison, I don't see why it's so hard to believe that the lighter 170whp car could be as fast if not faster.
