http://www.webpagetest.org loads a web page from servers in their datacenter (spread around the world), so packets are taking a totally different path compared to the test form your own PC. So, there has to be a difference in load time, unless you are sitting in one of the datacenters of webpagetest.org ;-))
Please define real results after you've read what I have written above.
