Besides getting your jollies from being a troll, why are you even on this forum?

are your feelings so hurt by the fact that a 4 cylinder all wheel drive car can out launch a V8 muscle car ??

if you don't want to see Challengers getting out-launched by 4 cylinder, 4dr grocery getters, don't click on the videos....

here's my observation.

you don't seem to the a car enthusiast due to the fact that you have 12 posts and you didn't even list any mods for your car, if any.

if you are driving around a stock WRX and you're going to a Challenger, then you won't feel much of a performance seperation during daily driving.

the Challenger will be bigger and more comfortable, but it will be less fun to drive, even during daily commutes.

if you enjoy tossing your car into turns and launching the piss out of it, getting in a Challenger will be dissapointing.

but if you enjoy taking long trips and feel the need to have the sexiest looking "American" Muscle Car of this era, then you'll be happy with the Challenger.

we need more information on the current state of your WRX......

Not at all, I have a 4 banger racer myself.
I just like to bust your chops since all you do is spew negative garbage here. You troll, I'm going to call you a troll.

It doesn't matter what the post is about, you have "knowledge" of it....
"I once had a buddy that had a <insert any car here> and it was more <something> better than a Challenger ever could have..."

The OP wanted to know if any previous Subaru owners had any regrets and/or feedback. Not what an STi can do performance-wise vs. the Challenger. Not what your experience was, not what you saw on TV or the internet.

Although you are the subject matter expert because you drove one... once.

i am the expert, because i owned a WRX for 3 years - and now i own 2 Challengers, so yes, i can absolutely post about my personal experiences - which is something the OP requested.

he didn't need you to come in here and trash up his thread by having to read your direct attacks to me - you didn't provide any data, information or experiences related to this thread.

so, you're clearly wasting his time by lacking any sort of relevant information pertaining to his post.....

stop following me around in every thread where i directly post feedback in relation to what the thread is about, even if it makes you mad that there are other cars that can do things better than your Challenger....

I have an 07 wrx. it's been paid off for a while and I've been considering adding a challenger to the garage for some time now. I just love the scooby though and dont know if it's in the books to buy the extra car and still hang onto the wrx... also... living in wisconsin, the awd is pretty done to have in the winter.

if Subaru ever came out with an automatic transmission like the EVO, i'd have two STi's...

the Challenger is bigger by far and i would say it's a hair more comfortable. it's RWD so there will be no amazing launching going on in a Challenger.

can't brake boost a Challenger and you can't make sharp turns at 70mph in a Challenger....

takes less money to make a WRX faster.....

the STi transmission is waaaaay better and less clunky than the 6-speed 392, but the 392 tranny is a serious upgrade from your glass WRX tranny lol....
Litos, I like you...I really do. You keep this forum interesting. But sometimes you just try too hard to ruffle feathers.

Uneducated, yes. Waste of your tax money? Probably not, I pay plenty in taxes.

Did you become an expert directly at the 3 year mark or did it come sooner?

You have the most biased opinion and skewed facts against the Challenger for some reason and I would hate for the OP to think the Challenger is junk because of your posts... like you are known for on CT.

By now you should know saying things like the quotes below on a messageboard for Challenger owners is trolling.
"the WRX/STi will do things on the street that would make a 392 cry itself to sleep.."
" it's RWD so there will be no amazing launching going on in a Challenger."
"the Challenger is bigger by far and i would say it's a hair more comfortable."

Your correct here. Sorry to the OP for hijacking your thread!
