They also don't have much of a CHOICE. I'm pretty active in our local group and have already planned about a dozen events. I've organized meets and cruises, with routes that I normally lead. Most of 'em are impressed with how quick I'm able to zip around corners on the routes or what my pickup is like despite the horses my N/A car has compared to their tuned turbo beasts.
I'm not too surprised, it's the basis to the next WRX/STI, so it's bound to perform pretty well. I always wondered why they stiffened up the chassis when the last one was already good, and why there is a mount on the back underneath for a second exhaust hangar... Now I understand. All that aside, I'm fairly certain that with upgraded sway bars and possibly a strut tower, this car can pretty much outperform everything else in it's class except a Mazda 3 with the same mods. It's rather impressive sometimes, it's cornering capability has actually scared me once or twice.
