Whoa, Whoa! Wait.
I lost control of the car in two separate incidents where the traction of the car was severely reduced.
Once in hard rain on a turn coming over a hill.
The other on an dirt road, kind of like the WRC tracks.
Neither times did I spin out, I've never done that before, but I drifted the car to the point where I was very uncomfortable. Both incidents weren't in places with many cars (especially the dirt road) and the thing that I learned was that the car can be very scary when it loses traction. Oh yeah, I'm also running on stock RE 92s.

The RS handles better than anything that I've ever driven before, and on DRY pavement, I've felt the car plow through the corners.

Yes, I totally agree with the quote that Tony posted about the Impreza causing the driver to kill themselves, and the "nut" behind the wheel looks to be my first modification. The only problem being that the only local racing/driving school that I've found costs about $950.

The best handling car that I've been in was Larry Ganz's car when he gave me a ride around the block at a local meet. My face when I was in the car My face after riding in the car then

JC, can you tell me some more about that racing school?
