My SRT is getting a little brother.......
 
2014 Subaru WRX Sti coming in September/October.......

Totally a fun AWD track toy, that could be used in the summer track days (while instructing) or on winter snowdrift/rally event.....

leaving big brother SRT for the mundane or towing duties.....:thumbsup:

Mundane or towing duties? Talk about bringing the hammer to cut an apple. Your call I guess...

Thanks Scott!

Gnasty, with all due respect, my SRT has "hammered" more tracks in 18 months than 99% of any SRTs will ever see in their life time....... here are some examples......

It is now time for me to baby it, thus spirited everyday driving and towing my racecar in style to various tracks....:thumbsup:

As an aside, one time while coming back home from a race someone asked me while I was fueling the SRT "Which one is faster the race car or the tow vehicle?" I was a bit surprised and said "it depends, one is faster in the corners the other in the straights".:lol:

Have a great day guys......

I like your definition of "the mundane" and "towing duties"...

Excellent choice!!! Here is a picture of my track beast. I travel all over the country for track events maybe I'll see you at one... you can give me a few pointers! When you get the chance post up some pics of the new beast.

More gas, less brake......:D

In a couple of weeks will be racing at Thunderbolt in NJ then instructing at Lime Rock in September and Watkins Glen in October.....

I can't believe the power that your evo generates, congrats!

If Scott allows it, I will post pics of the STi after picking it up......

See you around......:thumbsup:

Well, I take it back then. STi is a fine choice. I can't be the only person on this forum who wanted to say something right... Oh well. Congrats.

I will say that while I plan to take mine to the Nurburgring, the occasional "flat out" on the unrestricted parts of the Autobahn is very fun. I don't have the guts or the experience *currently* to pass cars like you were on the track. Great driving!

Thanks......

It was a lotus elise, a wonderful track car that can really carve up the corners, if properly driven of course......:)
