I have a page where I cover this a bit.
http://home.roadrunner.com/~computertaijutsu/dvds.html  (there's a
section on rar)

At any rate, on my VERY informal benchmarks, just using the time
command, it was faster.  
The syntax for that is identical to rar/unrar

7z e <first file in the rar series>, so for example

7z e 01.rar

Will unrar a section of rar files.
