    The opposite is what I heard regarding the New Age cars. One of the reasons the 4-door sedan went through two noses in 2 years (bugeye to blob) is because of the odd behavior during yumping. Apparently it would lose attitude control during long yumps. A more real-world reason, of course, is that the bugeye was a bit of a styling shock and didn't sell well outside the US.

    More WRC championships have been won by hatchbacks. The sedans win as an exception; the rule is hatchbacks. This is true since the Group 4 and Group 5 cars went extinct and gave way to Group N, Group A, and Group B (RIP). Hatchbacks are simply more successful cars in modern competition (well, at least since the early 1980s).

    ..Im talking about the 08 sti vs the 07 sti. Whether the 08 is or is not, i have not heard anything good about the balance of the chasis on the track. even in the "X games" the hatches would take a huge nose dive off the jumps compared to the earlier models. i dont know. haha. i guess neither of those sports arent really rally.

    Took the words out of my mouth. When I first bought my sedan, I had to tell one of the "big shots" at the dealership what that silver finned thing on top of the motor was.

    i hate to say it, but love is not what makes a subaru a subaru. sitting in the driveway making big motor noises with your mouth pretending your in a rally car is what makes a subaru a subaru.
    +1000000000000.
    That should be the next subaru comercial infact, a little kid in his dad's new sti making engine noises cutting to scenes of WRC.
