Subiechik,

For me....it brings me back to the days of the Big wheel and my ol BMX bike.....feels good to ride....sometimes i just can't wait to get home if I didn't take the ruckus out and ride it for a few hours. Relaxing...

Roof racks - because sedans aren't naturally as versatile as wagons or hatches. I cant fit most snowboards in my car, and resting my arm on skis while driving loses its novelty pretty quick.

Rotas - because sometimes college students want wheels that look good, but dont cost 3-4 grand. Also, Rotas are offered in more sizes and offsets than their more expensive counterparts, so they're naturally more marketable. You'll have to excuse us for being frugal and buying "fake" wheels.

Two "trendy bandwagons" I dont see going anywhere any time soon.

Mhmm, Ahhhhhhmen!

Why Impreza Sedans don't have drop down seats baffle me. At least make the pass through large enough for ONE snowboard with bindings on....=[ *Pimp smacks Subaru*

to an extent, if you put skis in a wagon you are, using them as an arm rest as well. Im yet to find something I couldnt put in my sedan that a wagon would've hauled. The trunk os deeper than wagons cargo area. Its not as high, but surprisingly capable...with the fold down seats I was able to buy biked for the kids and place them in the trunk and close the lid....at least the newer sedan.

the new ones do have fold down seats, and previous ones had a ski door.

Very nice very nice......I got a buyer for mine, gonna pick up a 2012 and do the 100cc kit, yosh exhaust, CDI and from there see what else i may want to modify. Where i used to live 25-35 mph was ok but I need it faster here in MD.....I don't want to do the GY6 swap, just really wanna get the most out of the stock motor for now til i can dedicate the ruckus to be a fun only ride and not a commuter.


I would love to strip it down like yours and completely have it bare, but rather keep the plastics if i get caught out in the rain or such.

Or just might, slight maybe, pick up a 250 Ninja. =/

You'll get bored so fast on a 250 imo. I was 100% content on my 600.



Oh, I'll just leave this here...

I 100% agree. If u take it easy u can get comparable mileage out of a f/I 600 compared to the carbed 250. Plus you've got actual power there if u want it 250s are just too frustratingly limited.

I've been trying to find some 04 sti struts for the longest. Whenever I have money, I can't find any, and when I don't have money, I find them. Go figure.

You know it looks like your car unloaded really fast between on/off throttle and I bet if you could slow that down a little and keep the inside tires loaded a little more through cornering preferably the inside front you would pick up a good amour of time. Also you see to lose quite a bit of camber in the inside front tires which doesn't help.

Sorry not picking just noticing things and I hate it cause I'm use to race cars where all of this is adjustable haha
