Haha yeah hard to believe on eco modder huh!

I like driving slower in my old age (28 lol). Except when it gets twisty!

I got some other fun ones too. Very grateful for growing up in the mountains with a 20 minute twisty commute and Gran Turismo waiting for me at home!

And stiff rear sway bar = AWD FUN! KYB AGX adjustable struts, eibach lowering springs. Pretty basic mods. I don't know much about cars other than that!

The nice thing about our cars is when it gets twisty, we can keep the same average speed through the corners!

The stiff rear sways bars makes your car act like almost RWD, lol!

I'd love to take my sti through some nice mountain twisties some day...but im too chicken to push it too hard for fear of driving off the side of the mountain :P

Push it as hard as you want. Too hard is only how you describe the disaster after it happens. I don't want to push it too hard either.

Blasphemy, I take my insight through extremely twisty mountains on several occasions and I find it excillerating. Of course I won't be doing this once I get RE92'S but with my current tires it's all good.

Sounds like you need some skinny tires. Ones you could more easily reach the limits of. Putting big sticky tires on kinda ruined a car for me, sure it was faster / handled better, but I would be laying against the door and hanging off the steering wheel, and I wouldn't even get tire noise if I was under half throttle. Meanwhile balto is having a blast on 165s

Yep, after these ultra high performance summer tires wear down, I'll replace them with all seasons. That should bring the grip levels down and lrr up for better coasting.

But with eco driving, the summer tires are not wearing down fast enough! Lol

Balding re92's are the best for AWD drifts when its slick out! Otherwise no chance with my sticky 225's!

I used to buy used WRX wheelsets with re92's for $150-200 instead of buying new tires. way cheaper, and fun! And dangerous in the rain too!

Jedi, you should do some autocrossing. No better way to know the limits of your car! Or go find an empty dirt lot
