    WRX's for the general noob.

    Alright, I know as soon as this gets posted i will have every experienced subie owner degrading me for asking this question but i think its one that has really never been explained well anywhere on the internet, Alright lets pretend i have never driven stick shift and i have never herd of drifting, slipping the clutch killing the clutch or anything. Please explain to me how to efficiently drive the WRX well and how to get the most power and the most fun out of it. Thank you

    Fun for you won't be the same as fun for me. What exactly are you looking to do?

    For the "most power", you'll want to look at a dyno plot.

    Light is right. Use all the road but no more, use all the revs but no more.

    Then you need a different car other than a WRX... and you should wait until you get out of high school.

    ^this.
    I drove a Chevy Cavalier until recently, i had fun with it for sure. I modded the crap out of it and learned alot in the process but it was still slow. but that meant i could drive the junk off it and still not really be speeding that much. it was fun.
    that is the type of car you need young jedi. Now that i have my WRX and im much older/wiser i can see this is an adult car, responsibility needs to be taken into account when you have a turbo and lots of power potential under your hood.
