    Re: 2008 Subaru Impreza - my log

    Did you drive and automatic or manual subaru? the reason I ask is the two (even to this day) have completely different awd systems. Both still subarus proven symmetrical awd

    the auto has a computer control center diff and is heavily front biased (something like 90%) until it detects slip then it computes and can go as much as 60-40 (if I recall correctly).

    the manual transmission has no computer for the diff, but instead it uses a purely mechanical system. it has a vicious center diff which is full time 50-50 split. then onces there slip the properties of the fluid change and forces more power to go to the axel with most grip. its really quite neat to look it up and see how it really works!

    what I think I was getting at is that the two systems react totally different when having fun in the snow. just another reason why i drive stick

    5 speed standard, Subaru Forester. The AWD is great on the street, but anyone in their right mind who thinks a Subaru can hold its own off road next to something like a Toyota is a complete dreamer. Was on a forester board for a while and it was all a bunch of old men thinking they have off road super starts - often hydrolocking their EJ's..

    I've wheeled both, and for a trail - Toyota, for the road, Subaru. For a daily.. subaru.. I miss my Forester ...

    I think there is a rule against that

    Hate to be OT but where does it say this in the rules?

    Closest thing I found was:
    "The course as laid out shall be on a paved surface which contains no dangerous holes, loose gravel, gratings, oily spots, or other haz- ardous features. Surface features (dips, crowns, etc.) which could cause a car to become airborne shall be avoided."

    Plus there was that one event in May...
    "Exhaust gases go into the turbocharger and spin it, witchcraft happens and you go faster"

    I'm pretty sure in the event of snow..which I highly doubt it'd be much..the course would be plowed..and it can still happen. I highly doubt tho..that there will be enough snow that if shoveled off..it should melt away.

    Trust me..I asked ..that'd be the only snow the scooby ever saw..but, Alas..I also want people to go..so..it's a 50/50 split..

    Here are the videos that I put together with my GoPro a friend lent me (not Kat's, the one that was on everyone else's car, I do not have that footage) I know my point and shoot camera on the sidelines didn't end up taking the best quality video, but put the quality to HD and just watch the GoPro view

    Had a another great day despite the cold and all the rubber the tarmac claimed
