I'd have to say the Cobra
I'd take an STi over a Cobra.
It is hard to argue against 03 cobra.
But I like the versatility of the Sti.
but i might take Saleen 281 over an STI
Cobra = Oversteer
STi = Understeer.
I'd go cobra for track racing. STi for rallying. Neither for a DD.
Easy choice, but the STi would be my second choice.
Have you driven an STi? Do you have any idea? It has a front LSD, understeer will be minimal at best. The car's handling limits will be quite high and it has more than enough power to have some nasty power oversteer if you're not careful. Hell, a WRX will oversteer with nothing more than a cheap ass manual boost controller.
Cool. I'm just talking out my ass, mostly from examples I've seen at local autocrosses.
Never seen a WRX oversteer.
cobra no contest
I'd have to say the Cobra by far! But since it snows alot here I'd take the STI.
I can make a stcok WRX oversteer. I've never made one power oversteer in higher than 1st gear, but I can still make them oversteer.
Then I stand corrected. I still don't think I'd want one for daily driving, because the temptation to punch the throttle would constantly be there.
Once you get used to being able to use so much power from a stop in day to day driving you'd be hooked. Makes it real easy to merge into traffic.
Any 2wd car I'd ever driven since just feels slow off the line.
I fear the day I get serious disposable income, because I'm going to be more addicted to speed and power than I ever want to, probably just like you describe.
apples > oranges
b13 nissan sentra
and i have a mustang as a daily driver
i already owned and sold a 2000 impreza RS
for me practically, STi > Cobra....if I lived somewhere like Florida or Texas, then Cobra > STi.
STi, while it won't be as fast in a straight line, im not that big of a drag racer. I much prefer auto-x/road course. The handling, brakeing, and everything I want come in the STi.
No it wouldn't.
Did they actually start production back up on the 03' cobra??? fucker only rolls downhill
I wouldn't take anything that has been halted due to 'glitches'
