    The Infiniti G35 has a backseat. It's pretty much the same car. 9 inches longer wheelbase if memory serves. I have a coworker who has a 2005 G35 that is bone stock. We've traded keys before and the 350z with it's 287hp/274tq engine is faster than the G35 with it's 300hp/260tq. I would imagine the G35 probably weighs quite a big more with all the nice stuff inside, plus the backseat, and the large rims.

    I'm sure either of them could be used for drifting.

    80's Toyota Corolla/AE86? I tried one out at our local rallycross and woohoo it was fun getting that tail out. Very easy to control. It's got a back seat, too

    dccd

    would it be possible to install a dccd in an 02 wrx? i imagine that would be expensive and time consuming.

    Yes, and you imagine correct.

    I have DCCD in my 2002 WRX, it cost me $3200 for the trans and associated/required components, then I had to buy a DCCD controller from www.dccdpro.com (I have the Auto unit with OEM knob) which I think was like $275 or $375, and then all the labor on top of it.

    It depends who you ask. Many of my family and friends are appalled at what I spend on cars. Still there are some who understand that it's all about fun.

    Was it worth it?

    Well, if you came to me in October 2005 when I was buying my bugeye and told me: "I'm from the future, you're going to put over $27k into that car between parts and labor", then I would have bought an STI.

    But, reality states otherwise. I bought the car stock, and intended to leave it stock. That lasted for about 8 weeks. Then I did the brakes, then some perrin hoses and uppipe with the AP. Then I got my TBE and flashed to stage 2. Then I did the suspension. Then I upgraded the turbo. Then I replaced the clutch. Then I broke the trans. Then I replaced the trans. All of these steps were separated by weeks and sometimes months. It's been fun each step along the way. Well, not so much when I broke the transmission, but even that worked out in the end as I found a decent deal on and an excuse for a six speed.

    With the STI, I'd have a much better platform for monitoring, but I would have spent an additional 20k on the car at the time of purchase. Which would have left much less money available for modding as it would be going into my monthly car payments. I'd have the boy racer/ricer looks of the STI which I don't care for so I likely would have done a trunk swap with a local forum member for a WRX trunk. Insurance on the STI would be a great deal higher than it is on my WRX.

    I'm happy with how things wound up. My WRX is understated, and reliable. It looks stock, so I don't need to worry about cops or ricers harassing me. It's the best daily driver I've had yet.

    Your newb-ness is very evident Shawn07sti. As stated earlier, watch the F&F Tokyo drift special features and listen to how many breakages they went through with their RWD Evo. The cars weren't meant to be RWD.
