I think the DCT is a smart choice, in this case, as it allows for consistent drag racing times while being quick enough for track work as well. This car should be a beast! I think the ZL1 1LE will be...

Evo X would be a good choice but if you're driving in rain/snow, the AYC pump is going to eventually rust out. Mitsubishi does warranty them so it's probably more of an annoyance than anything. ...

I did it all the time in Alberta, even in serious snow. I drove it through the winter for two years, then started storing it in the garage (once we bought our own place) and drove my 4x4 instead (I...

911 GT3 - pretty much any model under ten years old would be fine for me. I'm not that picky! More than enough power, pretty good reliability, high redline, looks great, can be used on the street...

Brand new, all day long. Better looking, way faster, modern tech, still appears to be reliable (based on what I'm seeing from actual owners), very quick in day-to-day driving.

The BRZ is fun to drive but the engine is definitely nowhere near as interesting as the S2000, either in sound, feel, or general appeal. I do think it's a more tossable car, though, and you "feel"...
