Some do-gooder decided to include this fancy button on the later models to save us from ourselves. I shut it off in dirt because its fun. And Jeremy Clarkson told me to.

It's not always off, even when in "yellow off" (TC & VDC off) mode. Apparently, some kind of tc & VDC is mandated for usdm, just like antilock brakes. So, even if it's "off", it's not entirely off.

I was riding along with my dad on I-17 in his '12 white outback and a brand new orange wrx rolled by. Happened about 5 minutes ago. Anyone on here that owns this rex? I don't know about you guys but I like the orange.

Awww, buzzkill. I seem to slide around more in dirt when I press the button. Or it's some kind of psychological response: press button, drive like a fool because I think I TT is off. Lol

It is more off than when it's on. If it's on, you WILL feel it kicking in the brakes as you go skating around. When off it's not entirely off but it will interfere far less or as severely. It still has to control abs & probably some minor stability controls.

It kills a launch when on that's for sure. I hate forgetting to turn it off.

Pulled up next to an AW 06/07 STI on Elliot and the 101, sounded really nice

Constantly see "SRSBIZNS" or something like that, DGM STI at Tempe Marketplace as well

Have seen a dark haired girl in a newer WRB hatch, southbound on 52nd/Rio Salado. She never waves back, but that doesn't stop me from waving anyway.

A few of us went to see the fireworks at Tempe town lake and we ran into him when we were leaving. Spotted and waved/received waves from a ton of Subarus.

I was surprised by the amount of subies we saw man. We didn't see a ton though. About 6 at the most. Seems like a ton in one area though lol.
