I can foresee the Toyota TSB:

It has come to our attention that some models have been erroneously badged under another brand. If your badge reads S-C-I-O-N, it qualifies for this recall and you...

Oh yeah, I forgot about the 2000GT. Still, that car was never sold in the UK (or US) so it's not likely that most people understand it as such. The FR-S is a unique car so I think it deserves a...

I for one actually like the FR-S moniker. It's simple and relevant to the car; F=Front Engine, R=Rear Wheel Drive, and -S=Sport. The 86 was never sold in the US as an 86 so it doesn't mean much of...

Wow! Big news! Great news actually! Scion is dead! Long live Toyota!

This should also mean no more PurePrice or MonoSpec BS so I might actually be able to get a higher trim model like you can...

Richard, it's just that this has been discussed very thoroughly for several years on here. Almost every other thread is about it.

In most cars, I usually prefer it off in the snow. But you do have to pay more attention and have more finesse. Just try testing it out without TC for a bit. I would recommend keeping at least VSC...

Yeah, even snow tires will still slip a bit but they just offer you a little more control and grip overall. It won't ever be like driving in the dry or even wet. But God have mercy on those who...

The sounds were coming entirely from the GRMN 86. That prototype 86 is making virtually no sound. Maybe it's hybrid or something? LOL

I agree, there was just so much more spirit of competition back then. Now it's all politicized, compromised, and standardized.

Slower, and uglier, and worse sounds, and less competition (no more BMW or Toyota or tire wars). That's why I don't watch anymore. Same can be said of WRC.

I agree. The 5 speed Aisin in the Miata was probably the best transmission I've ever felt. But the 6 speed AZ6 (which is the same base design that the FR-S uses) felt rather clunky and finicky in...

Yeah, I guess if you go back to the pre-AWD rally days, that was the case. And Toyota did have good AWD rally cars too up until 99 when they dropped out. But still... I'm more surprised at Subaru...
