Golf R vs WRX STi + Magnacharger C7

Chris Hayes published on

This week we're joined by Tim Whitcome, a long-time friend and occassional contributor to the efforts at TST. Matt and Tim discuss "Speed Secrets" a pre-pilot show that brought Matt to LA for the first time. We review the Golf R and WRX STi while comparing them to the impending Focus RS. Additionally Matt got some seat time in Magnacharger's supercharged C7 Corvette and we talk Carplay radios.

    Hey Chris, if you're considering the Recaro Sportster CS for your C6 you should definitely have a look at the Cobra Misano, they're absolutely gorgeous and provide very similar levels of support, at a very similar price. https://www.cobraseats-usa.com/sports/cobra+misano+30th+anniversary I believe there's a thread of them mounted in a C6 Z06 on LS1 tech or similar.
