So I can now confirm that an unmolested WRX has a comfortable time bouncing the rev limiter in fifth fourth, even with the air conditioner on.

Three things:

  • The stock tires are woefully inadequate north of 100 mph.
  • There is a visual difference in fuel consumption. Next fill-up is going to hurt.
  • I’ve heard of velocitization, but never before has 65 mph felt like a slow crawl. That was perhaps the strangest bit of all of it. Speed is addictive.
