As for the STi not being there long...what about a 2.5RS or similar GC8, strengthened and with a WRX motor dropped in? Common mod in the US community at least, and looks/sounds awesome :D
Heh, there was a '99 2.5RS coupe listed for sale when I was car shopping... it was about 100 miles away and I never did get out there to see it though. :(

Nah, I'd rather have an aircooled 914.

infact, that'd be a fun little car...
/me looks on ebay to see what they're going for around here


Driven one. FUN, but it has the same problem as my AE86, no balls. That's why the Subaru.

Yup! Driving at night especially, on an empty highway, about 10:30 or so, is awesome.

I think I could turn both of you bi. And if not, I'm a generous guy. The Corolla is a bit jealous though, but she might like you :wink:

Oh, and my 'Rolla is FRIGHTENING when I'm sustaining 140km/h on the highway. I've hit 190km/h in it, but it was only for a few seconds.

I like driving, especially on my commute home around 11pm because the freeway traffic is relatively light. I also like driving on the weekends as well, and since I've got a 4-cylinder car, I can do a 4-hour round trip on a full tank of gas.

i'd dont think i'd like driving even if i could do it. it just seems so pointless. maybe driving for fun on a racetrack would be cool though

I hate cars. I avoid them whenever possible.

Yo TruenoBlues...let me warn you, the last guy that threatened to take the motor out of a 22B cried for days when I was done with him ;) No touchie. Nooooooo touchie. There are only 400 of them and in one piece they're phenomenal (like the S201 no one seems to have heard of) and shouldn't be ripped to pieces for parts :P

Stroke out an EJ20T, or pinch a USDM WRX engine...give it a port & polish, forged pistons and voila ;)

Hard to answer. I learned to drive at age 34 (I'm now 37). I crashed after 3000 miles and have drove very little since then. Oh I crashed driving recklessly on a country road.

I did like the freedom of being able to go anywhere but at the same time I had no place to go so I mainly just burned gas on pointless trips.

I do think an usually high number of people on the spectrum can not/do not drive. Thats likely ranges from inattentive ADHD, dyspraxia, high anxiety, sensory problems, etc. Which is why I think some question like that should be on RDOS aspie test in the future.

Thats my FTO
I've got a new spoiler on it now thats less 'flamboiant' and new rims but cant afford the tyres for them yet.

I do motorkhana and the occasional superkhana (track racing)

Handles alright but the coilovers I have atm give it too much understeer because they're designed for a lancer with a small 4 cyl, that shares the same chassis thats why they fit, where as the FTO has a heavy v6...

Have to say driving both gives me something for my mind to do but stresses me out at the same time with all the distractions around
