What's going on with everyone's hood....mine is like a rock. I've had no such experiences even at over 120mph....the only annoying thing I've come across is that high pitch whistling from the window seal. The car is more than capable at high speeds and mine is bone stock besides some much better rubber. I've had a 2003 miata and that hopped around more at high speed and that thing sat on the ground. Let's keep in mind the WRX was not intended for drag use.
