you know what else has an under stressed drive train. A base model corolla.
Also a Tacoma drivetrain is not stressed either. They are also slow. I almost find it a challenge now to find how far you will go to apologize for this ugly commuter car pretending to be a performance car.

The 2015 WRX was quicker than the 2022.

"TEST NOTES: We performed 14 clutch dumps at or near redline in pursuit of the best launch. The WRX took the abuse without complaint. We achieved our quickest zero-to-60 times by holding second gear well past the 5600-rpm power peak to the 6700-rpm redline. "

5-60 7.1

And all of the other timed metrics, which are quicker?

Depends on the test :

https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews...-test-wrap-up/

https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews...e-test-review/

Outside of 0-60 times due to extra shift, it is quicker in almost every other scenario, specially from any type of roll acceleration.

Unless I am going crazy, those links still show the 2015 as quicker in all categories. The 2018 was an odd ball with the 5.5 0-60.

You can catch them beginning to prep the 2022 WRX for rally at the 1:10 mark.

Whoa! The '22 WRX is brakes away from being as quick if not quicker than the new Golf R. Subaru needs to hurry up and offer a Brembo pack or something similar asap.
Not even close.

Have you ever owned a WRX?

no, but they did rip all of the cladding off, and presumably threw that into a large recycling bin.

Subaru should have anticipated this (assuming they cared). The 12.4" rotors have been around since the days of the BL/BP Legacy GT and they are just too small for track work given the curb weight of the car.
I would even argue that the 12.8" front / 12.4" rear in the Performance package are also too small even if the Brembo calipers are nice.
Again, we just need to look at what the others are using in the front:
- late model Mk7 GTI and Mk8 GTI went to Mk7 R rotors: 13.4"
- Mk8 R went to 14"
- GR Corolla is also at 14"
- Elantra N went even bigger at 14.2"
All of the cars above are a good bit lighter than WRX (GTI, GR Corolla, Elantra N) except for the Mk7/Mk8 R.
IMO, for track work, the VB would need the old '15 to '17 VA STI brake package 13.4" front / 12.8" rear or, failing that, the cheaper Ascent brake package 13.1" front / 13" rear.

Ah, but the WRX is no longer a track car. It is made to take kids to their gender neutral scouting events. So it is a non issue. Everything about the WRX is about being a decent commuter car. No rally inspired anything is left in the thing.

bigger brakes would necessitate bigger wheels, which add to weight, which make the already horrible gas mileage even worse.

True. Most of the wheel/brake clearance issues come from caliper design more than anything else.
