wow wasn't expecting to be remembered after my hiatus. Expecially by my first name. I've also gotten married to my girl of 3 years and recieved an assignment to Okinawa Japan.

Now for some truth telling. After 7 months my truck driver in my sold his first car and climbed back up into the cab. I'm now running around in an 07 chevy silverado. crew cab with 4wd and the towing package. It's got 5.8 liter engine that gets about 350 horse power. but at 7,ooo pounds I can feel it but not really use it. I do miss the performance and it will bring me back to Subaru. This time around I will probably get an older one than 2 years old. similar performance numbers at stock with a greater chance of finding one modded just right. It will happen as a second vehicle tho. I've discovered this year that no vehicle will completely satisfy. I keep missing things about one while in the other.

The news and magazines over here have been trashing the new impreza over the lancer. mostly about roll in the corners and lack of easy drifting. So I went two weeks ago and test drove the new WRX at the local Subaru dealer. As a truck driver let me tell you - that is not roll. It is more of a slight dip. Roll raises the inside tires off the ground. It puts all the pressure on the outside tires and makes the vehicle go strait. And yes I have gotten two tires airborn on my truck - had to turn off the traction control. The new impreza just dips putting a little more of the weight on the outside and slingshots it's way around the corner. I'm a traction loving driver who has never been able to control oversteer so I'm not at all worried about that. I love that I don't have to slam on the gas to ease from a stop. It can be driven as a normal car or like a bat out of hell. I wanted to trade in the truck but a promise to stop buying vehicles so often to the wife stopped me. I am weak when it comes to the automobile.
