Default Wow!!

So, I had a chance to go outside of town tonight, because its finally starting to cool off, and hit some twisties and man I think I fell in love with this thing!!! Granted i've always loved the car and its fun to drive in general but until you can start hitting some turns you really have no idea...Handles like a dream, easy to heel/toe, and such a smooth power band. I completely understand why people rave about them, its definitely unlike any other car i've driven through the turns. I think i'm hooked!!!!

That's gotta be fun. I have to find out (in my local forum) where to go in my area to hit some dirt. It's gotta be fun.

What twisties did you go through?

I FINALLY got summer tires (woot birthday money ) So I'm going to do the back way to Prescott next weekend. Can't wait... I haven't had sticky tires on the STi since I took off the RE070s last December.

Just some out by my house, I usually go through bush Highway(road to saguaro lake) Or out to the road to canyon lake, Although I dont driving the one to canyon lake at night because of the 2-300 foot drop offs if you go off the road, lol.
