    Switched from 98 Accord to 08 WRX

    hello. i joined club wrx recently and i'm new to subaru.
    i sold my 98 accord and bought wrx. kinda regret
    using 98accord as my name here but too late.

    i'm also new to manual transmission and so far spent
    probablly 5-6 hrs practicing and getting used to it.
    i'd say i still have 50% chance of stalling if i'm in a situation
    with all these conditions combined - uphill, more than 3 cars
    behind me, light just changes to green and a mustang next to me

    98 accord had 150 hp but it was auto trans and heavy.
    i think official 0-60 is like 9 sec (my wife's v6 minivan actually
    faster).

    i took this pic at the dealer. got good price and 1 hr lesson
    on driving stick. what a deal. i'm proud that i drove home by
    myself and stalled eng only 4 times.

    Thanks. This is the best angle IMO. I try not to stare directly at the front or back. It took couple months to get used to the new look then finally decided to buy it.

    The name change might be a good idea. There was a guy named 96accord and he was banned.

    that's explains why some guy said "96 accord huh.." few days ago.

    right now, i'm killing time at work just so i can avoid peak rush hour. hopefully another 30 minutes it'll be better. there's one intersection on uphill where i stalled once and i get really nervous there..

    is clutch covered under warranty?
