so ive owned my 07 wrx for 3 months now and can say im finally getting the hang of smooth shifting.. ive never owned a manual car but have occasionally driven them and this one was by far the toughest to get used to..
i live in philly and we saw the first snow of the year this past weekend.. ive heard the stock tires are pretty good to run in the snow, but was curious what changes i should make to my driving style to compensate for the difference in traction when the real snow falls..
i don't drive the car recklessly and do most of my shifts before or around 3000rpm, with the occasional shift at 6k when some goof in a 350z gives me the head nod, as if to say he didn't get a good look at my license plate the first time.. should i shift at lower rpms? should i corner at slower speeds? or should i drive the car and let the AWD show me what im doing wrong?
thanks for any advice..
