スバル インプレッサ クスコ LSD テスト - Part 1
This is the 'Tuning and Driving Technic' Section of an older japanese
Impreza Magazine video testing the effects when changing the rear, front
and center differential on a JDM Subaru Impreza WRX STi Version IV.
The different set ups being tested by a former Super GT300 driver Katsuo
Kobayashi and a non experienced race driver, you can see that it is not
only a matter of changing diffs to make your Impreza lose its understeer,
it also requires some driving skills to handle it.
Subaru WRX STi vs Audi S3 Saloon
Does the new Subaru WRX STi live up to its predecessors - and can it match
the new Audi S3 Saloon?

The Subaru WRX STi and Audi S3 Saloon may not seem like obvious rivals, but
both have the same power output and distant rally heritage to call upon for
their performance kudos.
At £33,245 with a six-speed manual gearbox, the Audi S3 is more expensive
than the Subaru, but the £28,995 WRX clearly doesn't have the premium
badge and upmarket cabin of its Audi rival.
With 407Nm, the Subaru has a fraction more torque than the 380Nm Audi, but
it's where that torque arrives that really makes the difference. In the
Subaru you've got to wait until 4,000rpm to get peak torque, whereas in the
punchy Audi it arrives at just 1,800rpm. These cars have got very different
There was a time when we thought the new WRX wasn't going to come to the UK
but fast Subaru fans can relax - it's finally here. In an age when cars are
accused of all looking and feeling the same, there's no doubting that a WRX
doesn't feel or look like anything else on the road.
Performance car fans will forgive the Subaru's cabin because this car is
all about the driving experience and if you've driven a WRX before then
this new car will feel very familiar. First of all the boxer engine sounds
the same, you've got that unique sound from about 4,000rpm as you start to
work it hard.
You've got a gearbox that's got quite a short shift on each change, with a
slightly notchy, quite mechanical feel, and the steering is very fast but
at the same time quite light - which can be a bit disconcerting. It's also
got quite aggressive self-centring, but once you get used to it you realise
that that's a contributing factor to what makes this car feel so agile.
This is a car that you really will enjoy on the average British road.
The first thing you notice is when you get into the Audi S3 is the upmarket
interior is in a different league to the Subaru. It's a real contrast to
the dated cabin of the Subaru.
The driving experience is completely different, too. Where the Subaru is
really vigorous all the time, the Audi is very relaxed: it drives like any
other well-sorted fast Audi.
But the performance is there: it's got the same power as the Subaru's
engine. In the Audi you've got really instant power all the time so you
don't feel like you've got to work the engine so hard.
And the handling's pretty accomplished as well. The steering's not as sharp
and the way that the diffs work is not as aggressive but there's plenty of
traction, decent body control and the car turns in nicely. It's not a
thrilling car on a road like this but it's just very accomplished.
Off the line, both cars have superb traction, but the Audi is nearly 100Kg
lighter than the Subaru, and that shows by the time we reach 60mph. The S3
punches to 60 in 5.4 seconds, whereas the Subaru is 2 tenths behind at 5.6
So which car comes out on top in our test? Well, Subaru fans will love the
sound of the WRX's boxer engine and the car's unique character. But the
Audi has a much nicer cabin, it was faster in the drag race and it's a nicer car
to live with day-to-day. Yes, it's more expensive, but if you want a fast,
comfortable and stylish performance saloon, the Audi S3 is the one for us.
