Yes, Kevin. Highly odd. My BRZ does not enjoy scraping them with its belly.

In other terrible news, there was a school shooting.

K-4th Grade. Completely tragic. Condolences to those coping.

Ha ha ha YES! Wait no. I'm supposed to be working. I'll definitely take you up on it when I get back. I was just thinking that I'd tear the trans apart in the kitchen next to the engine that's in there. Why not right? Make use of the waste of space.

I would probably get yelled at too, but I'm single. Personally I don't know if the trade off is worth it. I'd rather have a girl, than a motor on an engine stand in my dinning room.

Haha may as well, it's a heated space! I just got done working outside, I ran outta batteries for my cordless drill, so I'll have to go out tomorrow when it's -25 to finish up the insulation. Fun.

That doesn't sound like fun.

Speaking of cold, I should go plug in my car. I've been at the office for a few hours, and I just noticed it's -16 now.

Check out my quick review on "Thoughts of Subaru's BRZ RWD" thread. I also snapped a pic of a WRB BRZ on the Glenn and posted it on "Who Was That?", from my BRZ.

We doin' good. If you're craving AWD, RWD won't help, but the limited-slip diff and nannies make it highly manageable. I feel just as confident cruising in my BRZ as I have in my other AWD Subies. I do miss the quick acceleration from a stop, but before I sold my WRX I was disciplining myself to do gradual starts, anticipating being put back into a RWD vehicle.

Of course, after being on the FT86Club site for a bit, I seem to be more capable than most (unless it's me driving a 3G WRX hatch ) when it comes to handling this car's dynamics. It ridiculous how many people have crashed these cars in the rain.

Davin, I meant it as "I'm more capable than most (unless I'm driving a 3G WRX hatch)." No need to elaborate beyond that.
