What's the difference in cost? I think that's most important.

However, let me also state (much to Ross' dismay, and luckily he doesn't come on here much) that the handling characteristics described of the BRZ are exactly what I've been trying to tell the SOA rep on here to disprove. As much as Subaru wants, this car has toyota+subaru = understeer written all over it.

I just don't understand how the Subaru rep could come on to this forum and say all the things they said about why this car was being made, and then have such reviews come out.

Apparently I missed something...

Anyway Subaru and toyota designed the car to understeer because its easier and safer for a novice driver to control. End of story. Just trow a bigger rear sway bar in it and it will probably neutral out. Adjustable coilovers and I'm sure you could make it oversteer.

So would any of you be interested in having the next meet at the Sonic on route 40?

It's actually about 5 minutes or so down the road from the Red Robin we go to.

:wtf:

Khalid & I texted the other day and said Five Guys on rt40, he didn't post it? what a slacker! he must be too busy humping his car.

anywho, it doesn't matter to me if it's Five Guys or Stewart's, just text me and let me know what y'all are doing so i can join.

i'm just going to leave this here, Mike K.... you'll enjoy this.

Ha, it would be better if it were really Chris Walken.

I already confirmed with Billy on Stewart's, so that's where we'll be.

by the way, in regards to the tri state meet. what the heck did we miss after we left? http://www.tristatetuners.com/forum/...&postcount=867.

Apparently there was like, swap meets worth of oil left in the parking lot. And tons of people drinking. Bryan, since you spent some more time back there than I did, was this in those rows further away from the VIP section?
