His mod list on Youtube is huge.

I like fast wagons though!! I get jealous every time I go to Europe.

Yeah but it’s little stuff like adapter pipes, mounts, etc. It’s still essentially a stock engine with bigger turbo.

When you see an unsuspecting sedan/wagon on RPF1s you know something is going on under the skin in some form or another.

Was just reading a Car and Driver long term test off a 6MT Allroad version. They love it.

I’d say there are similar levels of satisfaction. I don’t see the jollies got by straightening corners any different than that guy taking 4 seconds off his quarter-mile time. Whatever floats your boat.

He drives an under powered "momentum" car, he's gotta have a reason to hate on anything that actually makes sense.

i've been to a drag strip (some time ago) with moar powars (brz has less than anything else but a beater celica i've owned) - and i did have fun, and i respect the motorsport a lot more than the jabronis on here do my slow twisty boi. nonetheless the in car footage here is of practically nothing happening! if you have launch control and added self driving you'd literally be in an amusement ride.

Yeah, but to them, watching your slow fuck boi car gasp for every breath around a race track probably has the same effect. Innit?
