Yeah I remember that Subaru article. Good stuff.

Remember that VW add that had the GTI and the similar looking STi background thing? In the same magazine that add was in, there was an editor who said, word for word, "I just wish Subaru made a RWD car with the Impreza [WRX] motor in it." While seriously having a Q&A.

Really interesting video. It's interesting to see how cops see and analyze street racers



"On the back of the car, racers hang some type of medallion or carabiner, and that signifies that they're interested in racing"

lol'd at that. I hang a little Domo keychain from that back of my car just because Domo is awesome.

They talk like the street racing "culture" (if you want to call it that) is some sort of secret conspiracy

What are you're guys' opinions on ALS (anti lag)?

I mean for someone who will use it sparingly and not all the time... I guess it can wear out the turbo really fast. Should I consider it an option?

I picked my car up from the tuner. When I was driving home an integra was in front of me and I as I passed he sped up and paced me. He went forward and back several times trying to get me to go. I didn't even look at him...

What turbo did you go with again? Really depends on how big your turbo is. Bigger turbo = more lag off the line = wonky times. Slower pre-1/8th mile, but faster post-1/8th mile when you hit full boost, which also results in some weird trap speeds.

Little did he know that you were an off-duty police officer

I'm with you Alan. I will only race other subarus if I know the owner. It's never a cock fight, just playing around.

My car isn't fast by any means, but it is sure as **** fun to drive.

I'll fool around with buddies and, to be honest, raced a 350z down a spiraling back road right before my rad went. I usually ignore it (as all that tries to race me here is trucks...) but I'll do it on occasion just because.

I always win because where they decide where the race stops is usually before where I decide it stops. Hence I win

I have a leak. Don't know if its oil/coolant/trans just know it is oily. I'm going to check my oil before I go home and look under the car and see where its coming from. I hope its not oil

How's the steering? We've been fixing leaks for a while. Thought the last one was oil but turned out to be power steering fluid off the banjo bolt. Easy fix, can be done in like 5 minutes and costs next to nothing. Happens extremely often.

You should be able to tell pretty easily if you can feel/smell it. Coolant smells sweet, trans is usually much thicker than engine oil

So we stopped onto the topic for about three posts in the last thread but I'm really amazed this aspect of the new Vette isn't getting a ****load of attention.



To quote Joe Raposo and Jon Stone

"One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things just doesn't belong,
Can you tell which thing is not like the others
By the time I finish my song?"

I love it but I can see how people don't like the back end. lets hope the interior build quality is as good as it looks

I like the back end. Front looks better too.

Don't do it. It's really rough on your turbo, do you want to have more downtime?

Not getting more attention? What? I can't go anywhere without seeing people mention it.

That's why its smart to ask. I did some poking around and that is the info I found. I think I'll just get a street light flywheel and boost my revs faster. Wanting it mainly to show off not going to lie haha
