I considered keeping it, but the WRX suits my go fast needs much much more than the Focus, and is just more comfortable. Then the following weekend is a timing belt change on the WRX, then I think we just may be in touch.

Once again, much appreciated Doug. I'm so, so happy with it. It's the quickest car I've ever driven (Yeah, I haven't driven much so a bone stock WRX is lol), but it can be driven very normal too if you don't dig into boost.

Actually upon review of my raw footage it was like 6:30 from first touching jack to jacks out from under car. That entire clip was 7:30 long which included some revs and what not!

Sounds full of epic. Wait till you hear the driving shots with the gopro stuck to the hatch looking down at the exhaust.
