    I enjoyed the video and great photos of the car while on the track! Awesome to see you using the sti in the way it was intended for.
    I have no track experience at all. I hear the tires through the turns. What's causing that? Is it from the torque vectoring while you push the limits or do you have all traction control systems off?

    Thanks Josh.....

    Traction control was completely off..... no vectoring in effect

    Tire squealing is due to the fact that they are reaching the limits of adhesion.

    Are you sure that the ATV is disabled with the TC settings? I know the VDC is disabled....

    Absolutely, if you hold the TC button for 2 sec the sign on the dashboard will turn green and notify you that the VDC is still on with TC off.
    If you keep the TC button pressed for 5 sec you will disable the TC and VDC completely..... and that is the way I drove it the entire day.....

    Like I said, ATV is separate from VDC...

    That thing looks sharp. Starting to like the 2015 STi more and more.

    Nice driving! I assume since you have students that you're a driving instructor? Do you pay a lot of money for your track time? I've looked and its extremely expensive around here, Ohio. After your 2 track days + daily driving, how worn are your tires/brakes? Have you replaced them yet?

    Instructors usually pay 25% of the normal entry fee for an event, some clubs even waive the entrance fee for them in order to gain more instructors to sign up.

    The tires are still fine, brakes are going to be upgraded, overall it is a fairly nice trackable car (in beginners and intermediate groups) right out of the dealership......

    Make sure you check out my latest video
