    Welcome to the forum

    I believe you may have broken a tradition. People usually post pics of just their cars.

    Thanks everyone...this car is frigging insane. I have had some pretty crazy CRX's that had full coil overs, sway bars, 11" brakes all around, and the same HP as this(yes turbo) but this car and it's AWD out handle it all day....it's not faster but hey, it's no tall about speed in a straight line. :-)

    Hmm, I find it difficult to digest that an understeer-prone WRX will outhandle a 2000 lb CRX on Coilovers... what sort of alignment did you have on the CRX?

    I don't find it hard....standard alignment on the CRX, I just think it didn't weigh enough. And I love CRX's so I would never bash them....now if that CRX was RWD which I woul dove to build one, it might be a different story. Anyway, after building Hondas for some 15 years, and driving a big booty GS400 Lexus for 5, I rather like the WRX. It just needs some slight mods and all will be well.

    Well no wonder!! If you had the CRX on coils and had a proper alignment done, I feel that it would run circles around a WRX in the twisties. FWIW, you MUST align (at minimum) camber and toe whenever the ride height is changed...
