    Smile It's time I ventured into the world of AWD

    Well, I'm new here (as I'm sure you can tell)...I just got an 05 WRX -- coming from a scion tc...BIG change. But I love it so far. I'm not sure what I'm going to do as far as mods go, but I want to learn as much as I can about my new car...So if I ask a dumb question, don't flame too bad (I'll understand some flaming -- it's the internet, and completely unavoidable...)...Just saying HI.

    I did post on scionlife, but not that often...I used more for resources and to learn how to make random stuff better. I'm not a huge talker around people I don't know. And I while I knew that my scion was slow, it seems as if the rest of the tC owners don't realize that...high 15's/low 16's isn't exactly spectacular numbers.....and a lot of local tC owners didn't like me because I would tell them that...
