People who tow things with cars (especially sporty ones) are always cool in my book.

Gag-inducing. Especially those gaudy-ass wheels.

Let me guess. It's automatic, too.

Ill be MORE than happy to drive any truck that anyone wants to buy me.

As long as they also pay the extra insurance and the difference in gas costs when it gets even worse ( ) mpg than the mustang.

Yes.
Because drag strip. (auto is faster in the 1/4, so I hunted high and low to find one with low miles) I don't have any interest in getting up at the ass crack of dawn for autocross or track days anymore.


It shifts like the hammer of god. Seriously, part throttle the 1-2 upshift leaves black marks and a screech. WOT shifts=hold on and be ready to catch it if it steps out.



Wait, how do you not already know all this? :cunfused: (I mean about my car, I thought everyone knew)

Its true. Even in Subies. Auto WRX with a valve body and TQ converter will rape the 5MT cars mod for mod at the drag strip. .3-.5 faster

Basically, if you want to go fast at the drag strip, you let the transmission shift for you. It will do it a lot faster and it wont have to shift as many times.

Yup, plus you don't destroy parts with quite the vigor of a manual transmission.

Honestly after the horrorshow my subies have been, I could care less. I am just SO much less stressed, able to just go out, get in my car, turn the key and drive it. Beat on it if I feel like it, park it, get out of it and forget about it till next time. No stressing about what is broken/about to break/might break. Not saying its indestructible but its decidedly more robust. I am just tired of subie stress.

I'd recommend putting plastic wire loom (I think that's what it's called) around the wiring. Whenever I fold mine up, it likes to cut my trailer light wires. I didn't paint mine initially, and now it's 2 years old and chalky. I'll probably be painting it soon.

Mine is also set up with 2 wheel chocks. Thinking of adding a 3rd (one bike backward).

Loomed and tucked. In all the key areas anyway. Ill get pics of that too


I only have one bike but I may get a second chock, in case I find someone to ride with that doesn't have a truck or whatever.

I have extra mounts for the chock I have now, so I will put them on the side, so that I can still put my bike in the middle if I am alone. Then move it to the side, and do 2 bikes side by side with the other chock. (which I will buy at some point)

You sure about that?
Actually I thought it was interesting to see a race bike and track bike towed with a Prius.


The Outback H6 is a kickass tow vehicle.
