    I freaking love my WRX!!!

    Okay, well I finally got to autocross my car with its mods...Cobb stg2, prodrive springs, cobb swaybars, and kuhmo MX tires. WOW!!! What an amazing car! Great handling, awesome power, little understeer ( I know how to autox a stock wrx, this is a cakewalk!) I was able to beat STi's, evo's, corvettes, mini cooper S's with john cooper works package, and some modified miatas. I did however lose to a beautiful carrera4S with 9in wide BBS wheels! Oh well, I still have alot of growing to do as a driver. This setup on a WRX is awesome, I am so happy with how my car has progressed and where its at. Just had to share my joy with everyone!

    Awesome man. Putting all the mods/money into the car and getting sweet satisfaction is what it is all about. If you get a chance post some pics of your auto-xing action.

    So did you beat all those cars with the stock wrx setup or was that with you modifications? Congrats on the love man!

    I don't think you're giving the driver enought credit!!!

    If you're beating all thosed prepped cars.....you might might be a important part of the equation.

    Go give yourself a pat on the back and have a beer on.....yourself.

    I've been considering the Cobb sway bars.. Someone said using the big front bar will make it push like crazy... seemed odd to me since Cobb tends to do their homework.

    Any feedback on th Cobb bars?

    Racenut...get BOTH sways!!! I have both, with the rear set to full stiff, and it is incredible. I'd have to say the biggest difference in handling comes from getting swaybars. The stiffer front sway does not make it push, it helps with front end grip, and also keeps the camber at alot better levels than with the stock swaybar.

    Congrats on beating all of those cars. I'm sure the mods help, but I'd say most of it was you simply outdrove them.
