I guess my point to the thread was that so many on here assume since the GR WRX does lean a bit in turns and tetter fore/aft that it means the car doesn't handle well. That's really not the case. I won't argue that the perceived handling doesn't feel that exceptional, but once the chassis settles, it sticks pretty well and the AWD traction let's you dig in and dig out....in a hamfisted kind of a way.

Just an alignment and better shocks will make the car that much better. Bigger/better brakes are certainly needed for longer courses. I won't argue that. Big brakes for autox and normal daily driving? IMO, a waste of money and possibly worse braking.
