WRX's and especially STi's are incredibly capable cars, and there's no way on earth you can possibly drive them anywhere near 10/10ths of their performance potential on public roads. If you think you are, then all you're reaching is the limit of your skill, not the car's roadholding ability. And if you're really pushing the car up to 100+ and then back down to 30 on that road, you need to slow the heck down. It doesn't matter how much fun that is, it's not even remotely safe.
