    If you want something that'll take the corners at WOT, AND get dem ladies at the same time, buy a subie.
    Hahaha.
    Don't get me wrong i love subies but i hate these statements. A DSM can go through corners like any other car including an STI with a good suspension setup, and any good looking car can pick up ladies including DSM's.

    It's okay project, breeeeatthhhe . I'm just messing around. Me and Toxik have known eachother for years, we're just kidding around.
    But I totally agree with you, DSM's are some nicing looking cars, and they handle just as well.

    crankwalk was only an issue for the 2g models.

    the 1g dsm has the same chance of developing crank walk as a say.... a honda civic

    False, 92.5 was when dsm switched over to the 7 bolt motor which was the crankwalk common one. And 1g cars were made up until 94...its just a general consensus its only 2nd gen dsms because thats all they had was the 7 bolt motor. Half right though

    I've never heard of a walking 1st gen, 7 bolt or not. As I said a year ago in this thread, I bought my first Eclipse (new) in 1992 and have owned a half dozen since then, plus a Galant VR4 and an 89 Mirage turbo. I remember when crank walk was just a rumor, then confirmed, then almost an epidemic. It's safe to say I have a little experience with DSMs.

    I'd love to see a link to a 1g that had crankwalk.

    im not saying youre wrong, it is a lot less heard of for crankwalk in the 1st g's but you have to remember it was 92.5 and up the motor was switched to the exact same motor the 2nd gens have, i dont understand how they would get it but the 1st gens wont. I have also owned various dsms (3 to be exact) before i bought my wrx, so i have done alot of reading on them...true 2nd gens were bad for it, but there are 1st gens that have had it...
