    New here.

    Hi everybody! My name is Phill and shortly will be buying an '06 WRX TR. I am looking to auto cross the car and am wondering in what classes the WRX thrives in. I have auto crossed for a few years in my 95 Neon ACR in G-Stock and am looking to buy a WRX because I love the new ones and would like to get out of my Neon ASAP, lol. Anyway glad to be here and I hope to be bombing around Atlanta in my new WRX soon!

    DS and then, I hate to say it, STU. Normally a WRX would go to STX where it is very competitive, but STX is limited to 2.0l. The 2.5l of the 06 WRX will move it to STU where you will be battling STI's. Some might say that an 06 WRX has a chance against the STI due to it's better gearing and less weight, but I doubt it frankly.

    It would be cool for someone properly prep one for STU and see how it did. I think the diffs on the STI would win out though. That being said, at a local level, I'm sure it could be very competitive.

    Thanks for the warm welcome everybody! I am getting more and more excited about picking up a WRX, which will be the first new car I have ever bought by the way, and learning how to Auto-X AWD. I guess I should stick to DS for now, do the mods that I am allowed in stock class and get used to driving the piss out of the car when I get it.

    For those who want pics, I can post pics of my current car which is a 1995 Dodge Neon ACR, how ever its not a Subaru and I wont have it for much longer. I am going to miss this car with a passion but I belive its the right choice. I have had my fun in GS and am looking for something faster and to be honest, better looking lol.

    Yes, the eyelids are electrical tape.
