I threw it in 3rd and went to redline and the TC couldnt stay with me. Now i'm wondering if the driver was really taking it to the limit. The TC is rated at 160hp and the RS 170. The only benefit that I see the TC having is lower weight.
AWD == Slow

Not that it matters though as the Scion is also slow as hell. I have been in the car when my friend destroyed a TC that was tailgating him for about 3 miles (IN A SKOOL ZONE WITH NAWZ!!1!) without so much as downshifting. That was in a stock 2002 Mazda Protege .

C/N: Both cars are slow so who cares
