Default Now I'm REALLY in a quandry!

I was planning to spend about $4k on my WRX in March. Now I'm wondering if it's worth trading up for the STi.

Is the new drive train on the STi stronger than that of the WRX? By that I mean, is it capable of handling higher torque loads without turning to mush?

Have a Nice Day?

Well, the engine IS pushing 300lb-ft of torque.... and you bet some of those STi will make it to the drag strip.
