    Just looking at the turning circle of the 2 cars.

    STI
    Turning Circle 35.401 ft

    C5 vet
    Turning Circle 39.001 ft

    Now I am no car expert so maybe these numbers don't mean anything but the only reason a C5 MIGHT be able to do circles around a STI is because it is just plain faster. But when it comes down to just plain handling, the STI is better because I said so.
    *plugs his ears and starts yelling "LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA I CAN'T HEAR YOU LA LA LA LA LA*
    lol... if the vette has a widing turning circle wouldn't that mean it would do circles around the sti.... the sti would be doing circles "inside" of the vette :-D

    that's speaking to the driver... not the car... lol... you are right... it's easier to drive a STI more effectively than it is to drive the 'vette... but once you learn it... who gives a damn

    *Drool* Man, I like my WRX but I really miss my '93 Mustang GT. There's just something about V8 power...

    Hope to get pics this weekend. I was up late last night doing the clay bar and buffing on the front half of the car. Seems the previous owner wasn't very good at caring for the paint. So I'm bring the paint back to is former glory. The paint job on this thing is like a metallic black pretty cool.
