    New 06 WRX owner in Hudson Valley

    Hey all,
    Just got a 06 WRX sedan so am new to the club. Any tips or suggestions?. Ive noticed a lot of understeer so far which can be a little scary. Any thoughts on tires? or pressure for an easy fix? Ive got some pretty crap photos right now but here it is.

    Our caravan (3 '08 STi's, 1 Baja Turbo, and my '05) saw a few white WRXs on Sunday on a cruise up through Hunter/Windham - any of them you?

    Welcome to the club!

    What tires does it have now? New tires can make a huge difference in how the car handles. Not to mention snow and ice judging by the pictures

    Check out the stickies in the suspension forum

    Im outside of Rhinebeck. Probably wasnt me up near Hunter. I stick to dutchess and columbia county mainly. The tires are Potenza RE92s. Great back roads around here, pretty twisty, lots of gravel.

    Fair enough, I think we saw three white hawkeyes on the drive (maybe just two). Be careful on the gravel, we lost a Baja Turbo sunday when it hit a tree
