Why doesn't it occur to you that if SOA is having all these problems with "abusers" Dragging there cars, promoting WRX dragracing is just DUMB.
You have to remember, these cars are modified for these things by PROFESSIONALS
, not your "driveway installer" (don't mean to offend anyone who actually knows what they are doing), they put on modifications that actually are MADE
for the car (specially designed, not bought at the local auto parts store, etc) and they don't go back to Subaru and whine when they break something.
They are also professional drivers, trained to drive the way they drive. I'm sure they don't get in their Honda/Toyota/whatever and drive the same way, break something and take it to the dealer and expect something covered under warranty.
P.S. Ford, Chevy and Pontiac all sponsor cars in NASCAR, but you don't see anyone complaining about their warranty!
