i've driven race cars since i was 10 and once i bumped up into bigger cars going tripple digit speeds i then knew that driving like a maniac wasn't for the road. i since gave up racing, and bought a new 2012 wrx. its by far nothing like some of the race cars ive driven. but at times i realize how much faster it is then a "normal" car. if i had this car at 16 im sure id be dead too. parents with money need to read car reviews a little before buying their kids cars like this. save it for the track.
