You will never catch me in a WRX again! Demon-ridden ride! STI or Legacy (wagon) or bust if anything!

I have been driving around with traction control off and still feel more confident than when I had my WRX. I just miss launching from a stop in the snow, but how useful is that REALLY?

I have seen several WRX/STI just look at me... The other day I passed in front of an orange STI on Dimond as I turned west from King St. I did a little drifto for ya! ;-)

Oh Chano….you've hit a new low man.

I hope you show to breakfast @ Gwennies on sunday. I have a strawberry waffle with whip cream on it for you.

Been a while since I bought you breakfast.

What the heck does a BRZ need traction control for anyways? Thing doesn't make enough power to get out of it's own way.

When are you gonna go upside down on another new car anyways?

Some very "AWD ain't all that" logic there. Who are you trying to convince, us (AWD) or yourself?

In all seriousness I know where your coming from. I have never been more connected with a car than my 03 S2000. Yea it was RWD, yea it wasn't the fastest thing on the street but its 50/50 weight distribution, sports car handling and all its other sports car characteristics made it one amazing driving experience. I will own another S2000 again!

If I were in a situation like yourself I'd be in an S2000 or a red FR-S myself.

I'm still new to this whole game so I appologize, but isn't the FRS and the BRZ pretty much the same thing?

Don't tell Chano but the difference is the FRS is more SEXY than a BRZ!

Yes they are the same car. I just prefer the FRS front bumper, gauge cluster, and sport cloth seats over the BRZ's.

Haha makes sense. (Whispering... I had a TC once) as big as I was for that car I loved it especially after resoldering all the dash/hvac lights to bright blue leds that still ran off the dimmer switch. Ill never go FWD again tho
