"See why the Mazda Speed 3 is better then a WRX" on a Subaru site. Who do they keep in charge of these adds?

Meh I like it as a car. Better is a referance to specifics that ricer logic draws generalizations from.


If I had a Mazda 3 I would have gotten it stuck about ten times today.

Exactly. Zoom zoom! Oops, was that a median? Hey buddy, a little help?

Gotta consider the target audience. WRX in AK is definitely the better choice. Elsewhere, maybe not as much.

There are a couple ways to look at it...
One being that those adds pay for this site to be up for us to post on it.
Money talks, so do all of us. ^^

I would never own a Mazda. I would find the nearest pole and hit it....hard. AWD robs a lot of power and adds weight. If a wrx was FWD i'm sure it would out perform, 10x over.

Last year we didn't have too bad of snow.. but my Neons have done fine...


I don't praise SRTs or Neons.. so don't even try to give me an attitude like that.

I'm not stuck on one brand car as "best"...

thats exactly right, I agree with you. then you realize that everyone that owns a subaru on a subaru site is gonna be awd since there all awd now. Also ive owned both a first and second gen dsm both awd, there not that rare. My point is that most of the guys on here that have evos are previous subaru owners to begin with, so you dont need to claim that this is an awd site , like people with old celica gts-4 trac's should be posting up here.

i was invited here because i drive an awd car. ive never owned a subaru nor did i really know the difference between them except the sti's i know... cuz i love to race against them. and saying "awd" i was referring to the fact that non awd ads are popping up and it confused me. not saying this is meant to be a 4trac forum :-p and besides... i guess i should have said turbocharged high hp awd cars :-p cuz ive seen a few evo owners on here... that have never owned and most likely never will own a scooby. but are here because scooby owners are extremely cool for the most part and drive vehicles that have the ability to come play with us.

I salute you man.


Nix is right, the moment we start segregating cars, is the moment we are no better than racist.
