Rav4 video, STEEP downhill video maybe

Nah JK bro, I think it has to do with the wrxs ability to get out of the hole so quickly -- with most 300whp wrxs it's not hard to get a 4.0sec flat 0-60 or even quicker. I am curious as to why the trap speed is so low, though it could be that the higher gears in the rav4 are reallllly geared towards fuel economy? It also looks in the high 7's, closer to 8s from 50-100mph.

I tell you now, I would be PI$$ED if a Rav4 pulled on me from a roll after going stage 2+ in a WRX... Haha imagine the look on a Camaro SS drivers face even!!

Guess it goes to show how important rotating mass can make a difference. I just weighed my 18x8.75 xxr 527's yesterday and they are 19lbs a piece. Not bad for that size a wheel!
