Alright, so from what I've been hearing (ibflames) the wrx tranny just isn't up to the task of modificatinos other then very low-end bolt on stuff. With that and a little more info I've read about it's tall gearing and other whatnot, I decided to eliminate it with a little stronger AWD platform to put up against the Supra, which currently has my heart, despte the rice-inflation. The VR-4 is a very, imho, misunderstood platform. I think it has alot, alot alot of potential, and I've driven one before and was impressed. It has alot of oomph which is nice. I know it's heavier then shit, and I'm not sure about the reliability, but I'd like to hear from owners, and spark a new debate. The two cars will be about the same price, although the VR-4 I may be able to aquire with 10k fewer miles. I'm looking around the 18K price range, give or take. With that in mind, what does OT think?
