    I'm pretty sure it was an Odessey. They ran them all through an auto-x course. first run the jaguar was several seconds off the porsche and the honda. Second run they put some upgraded all-seasons on the mini-van and it trounced the porsche Shows what you can do with a little ABS and some power-steering, crazy stuff!

    Dang, now I'm not sure if I want to trade the WRX in for a minivan or an Echo.

    Holy crap! I had no idea there was such a thing as an "Echo Enthusiast" - let alone enthusiasts who care enough to stretch a BS "kill story" to 6 pages!

    That guy has gone back to edit his post to say he got blown off.

    Anytime you have a kill story about a canyon road, never discount the value of the "superior driver" mod. See the Neon SE vs WRX vs A4 thread!

    Yep he's changed his story:

    I quote:

    "WRX vs Echo

    Had a perfect situation with a stock WRX yesterday. WRX approaching me quickly on a straight going into a series of turns. Hit the corners doing 65 MPH. The WRX pulled away from my 2300lb Echo like I was standing still. Couldnt hold a candle to that AWD power in the turns.

    I gave him thumbs up when he finally got a straight where I could catch up due to traffic. Not the first WRX that has dusted me twisties."


    ------------

    Talk about a change of story!

    My old Intega would DESTROY my current WRX in the twisties. Granted it had thousands poured into the suspension and tires. My screen name is due to the brake upgrades I had on it. Get S-03's on it warm, and it would stick like glue. I could see a 2300 pound tweaked car givin a Rex lotsa trouble on a road with many transitions.

    BUT....

    chuck the same sorta mods on the WRX and all bets are off. Didn't a WRX blow some "established" slalom record away, modified of course?

    Yeah, that's the thing. One of those Echo guys said something like "my prepared 2200 lb car will blow off a 3200lb WRX riding on those all-season tires in an AutoX". ummmm.....yeah....probably so. Better hope the WRX's RE92s don't wear out!
