This thread has been a huge help for a new owner like me. I'm just now understanding how this system works. I have knowledge of what LSD's and VDC does but to read real world examples of the capabilities is what is really helpful. While I wish I could have afforded an STi, I couldnt justify its price given my means. This car is a perfect platform for me and a huge upgrade over my RSX.
If anyone else has an 08+ WRX and has experience pushing it to the limit, I'd love to read more about its handling.
