Yeah, I would like to get to the track, but I want some guidance/instruction first. I went down to Beechmont Subaru (Cincinnati) for a test drive. I spoke with my contact there (John Earls) and he was helpful and interested. He seemed pessimistic about seeing the car any time in the next 12-18 months, guessing it would be more like 24.
But 2 things of note: Damn I really need some time to learn to drive this car. The WRX 4cyl trbo drives totally different than my VW. My pedal action was rough, and I was a little stressed about when to shift with the dealer in the car. ***This is why I need some time and instruction. I need to be able to drive the car before I worry about lap/track time. I also NEED to get the SCCA/CiSCC autoX as well to get used to driving on the clock.
2: I don't plan to mod the car and the WRX seems like enough for me. (taken in light of #1 above) I need to resist buying it now only to regret wanting more later. I would rather plunk down the $30k for the STi, after waiting, than plunk down ~$25K, then want to mod or sell in a couple of years.
Sorry for going off topic a bit. -j
