I'm the driver in the STi discussed in the thread.
The starter of this thread has been posting some very odd questions/comments regarding his STi. For instance: Who can I get to give me a 50/50 lock on the center diff (adjustable for those who own one would know). He was glad that he bought the 6 speed STi and the not the auto.
These questions, and this thread, lead me to believe we have a "wannabe" amongst the crowd. Maybe I'm wrong. If so, please post pics of you and your STi and I'll humbly beg your forgiveness. If not, please stop with the inane comments, rediculous questions, and poser stories. Maybe you have driven an SRT4, and quite honestly, I would agree with you that it doesn't feel as strong as the STi. But for some odd reason, I suspect you are posting subjects like this to associate yourself with an STi, which you don't actually own. I can't blame you, but dude...c'mon..it's just a car.
