Alright. You didn't really specify the exact "rear diff mod" in the OP. I still feel the current rule set is fine and that aftermarket diffs are just another expensive expense to add to our cars that already handle very well.

Evo's still beat the STi's quite often even if the STi's don't experience what you are talking about. I don't see it as a problem in STU specifically whatsoever. In STX I do see where you are coming from about the WRX, and it has seemed like the wrong car to have to win in STX for awhile. Yet the M3 seemed to be looked at as the wrong car to have in STU for a long time until this year when one finally won and it was blown out of proportion imo.

This literally cures understeer in evos, I'm sure it does the same in STIs and WRXs

Thanks for the input
I like your reasoning here that I underlined more than anything else. But I am still not convinced. I like STU and ST classes how they are currently.

Again this is just my opinion and that really doesn't mean all that much
