Re: These cars do better than I thought they would
Yes they are a lot faster and far more capable than most give them credit for.
I just took a good buddy for a short blast through a local canyon in mine. He has a built 500WHP EVO VIII with Ohlins and super sticky tires.
He expected mine to be faster than his EVO (and it is) but what really surprised him was the lateral grip and control I get through the twisties. He wanted to know what special tires I had on - my answer "9 year old Michelin Pilots lol".
Its hard to beat our footprint, low C of G, AWD and AWS, keeping it all planted and controllable WOT mid-corner.
