Obviously not the best handling cars in the world lol. The most thing I find different is the control. The trans am always made me nervous being a rear wheel drive car and not putting the power to the ground well. It usually blew threw the tires into 3rd with my 4.10 gears. So I love that I can get on this and not feel like going to go sideways immediatly lol. It's hard to compare a car that made 520hp to the wheels to 265hp at the crank . Boost wise the trans am with the procharger had very little lag at all as soon as it hit 4,000 rpms it went like a bat out of hell but I would never dream of doing any corners ugh body roll was terrible. I like how small the wrx is. I feel it's more my size lol. I'm not a very big girl so I always felt like I was driving a boat in the TA lolol.
    Thanks for your thoughts on the car. The TA sounds like it was fun when you wanted it to be. Driving a V8 and a Boxer 4 are very different experiences. I do miss the massive torque I had down low, but I don't miss the terrible handling that I had (It was a 98 Grand Cherokee with the 5.9 in it - a rare beast). Have fun in the corners, and there is plenty of power to play with.

    Yeah, it handled like a big pig, but once things straightened out it was fun. Nobody ever knew what it was, so when it went by the unsuspecting they always seemed a bit confused. There is nothing quite like 4WD for a great start from a dig.
