    Very interesting stuff. It was interesting to see them try and start a new naming trend (the "overpipe"). I wonder who originated the term "uppipe" on the WRXs?

    so here's a couple more pics. This was from the other night when Josh stopped by with his new ride. Sorry no inside pics, it was getting dark and all I had was my cell phone.





    again, my apologies for the crappy pictures. Someone at Blackberry needs to sell the government phones with better picture taking abilities. lol

    Oh.. and Mikey this one's for you bud

    Josh shat his pants last night I heard. Taking a ramp at 60mph instead of posted 20mph will do that to ya...

    Yeah this is his first rwd.. its going to be a steep learning curve even if the car does handle like its on rails. When he dropped by it had 23 mi on it... wouldn't let me drive (not that I thought he would). I just hope he doesn't get in over his head and make a mess of car or himself..

    oh.. and HI Jeff

    Yeah... I've only had two cars total in my 10 years of driving... The 96accord and my current 07 WRX.... :-/ FWD and AWD. Never owned a RWD before.

    I'm sure its a big learning curve. It will take some time. He said he didn't realize he was going so fast.... lol he said its like a rwd Si.

    I asked him if I could drive it.. lol

    It's not so bad - I have RWD, zero traction control, and tires with an 800 tread wear rating haha. You just need to wait for snow/rain, go to a parking lot, and start taking corners. Get really good at catching your slides and STOPPING them as fast as possible before you try to practice drifting, because otherwise you'll sustain your slide tangential to the corner all the way to the guard rail! A friend of mine found that out. Thankfully not in an FR-S.

    All that said, tell him to enjoy the car. That lucky bastard has what I can't afford right this second. I'm mega jealous.
    I want to fill my parking spot with WRX Why won't Subaru let me?!
