Yup i know how that is! A mustang is not ment for kids, I try carrying my nephew and some of his toys it's a pain, I had to sit so close to the wheel to fit his things in. Mustang just isn't big enough. I think you made a great choice! It's a beautiful car and it's what you needed. You have the best of both words IMO mustang&WRX

Thanks man!! I love it. When I put the car seat in the mustang I have to put the passenger seat all the way forward. No one can sit in the seat unless they are less than 5' tall haha

Yep. But that's at the cost of his clutch potentially getting fried

I don't know man. It is a rear facing car seat do there is only one way to put them in correctly. Not sure if verts have smaller backseats than a coupe also.

I'd rather see 1/4 times then a dyno sheet. AWD gets a lot more power to the ground then a RWD does.

AWD is awesome.
Forced Induction is awesome.
Four doors when you need it? Awesome.

The only thing I don't like is how common it is to slam those cars and the whole stance/fitment scene... It just looks retarded and from what I can tell just causes excessive tire wear.

What? I the the power loss is the other way around!


All Wheel: Transfer case, two differentials, and a transmission. The transfer case and two differentials typically eat up about 5% of the power on their own, and the transmission eats up 10-20% power depending on if it's an auto or a manual. So total losses anywhere from 25-35%.

Front Wheel: Integrated transaxle. No drive-shafts. Total of 12% losses for a manual, to 22% losses for an automatic. (This is assuming transverse FWD. Longitudinal can lose from 18-28%, depending on auto or manual.)

Rear Wheel dirve?: Depends on the setup. Front-engine, rear drive typically sees 15% loss for a manual, and 25% loss for an auto. Mid-engine, rear drive, transverse setup sees 12-22% losses like the FWD above. Mid-engine, rear drive, longitudinal setup sees 16-26% losses.

I agree with everything here. From what I see, at least on the Subaru forums, the stance scene is hated by almost everybody, including me. It ruins the functionality of the cars. The people on the forums are pretty brutal toward stancing out a Subaru. It just looks ridiculous.

I don't thing that I've ever seen a slammed Subaru. Evo and Honda are another story.

+1 with a rear facing car seat the front seat has to be all the way forward my girlfriend is 5"0 and she was very uncomfortable, she was all in the dash.

No, you've misunderstood me, I may have worded it wrong. AWD cars have more power to the ground because there are four wheels with power verses our RWD cars only powering two. So an AWD car is faster with less power then an RWD car that has slightly more power.

I wasn't talking about rotating mass I was talking about power to the ground via AWD.

Let me ask you this. If two cars made the exact same horse power and they weighted the same, the only difference is, one is AWD and the other is RWD, which one would be faster on the 1/4 mile?

Re: I just had to!

I've contemplated a WRX or Evo a couple times as my "winter" vehicle.

If I didn't use my truck for truck things I'd trade it in and pick one up. While I am and will always be a mustang fan, I also have a respect for a fast awd import. I just can't stand some of the cocky/ignorant owners, but then you got them in every car scene.

Same here. I'm gonna be looking to buy a wrx upon my return from deployment. Gonna be dropping about 7 grand on the stang to finish it. I'll have done just about everything I can do to it with out upgrading to forged bottom end.
