There will be lots of people buying an auto toyobaru. This is a good eye opener for them! I'm sure they want to know how great their car is too!!

However, the Megane RS265 is an animal and, pound for pound, one of the best cars on the market. The chasis of the Megane is totally f#@king legendary and no way on this mother earth can the toyobaru compete with it. There is no way the toyobaru can touch that car within a country mile. On every level imaginable the Megane is the superior car. It's better balanced, more fun and predictable than the toyobaru. The test is also a good education on those brainwashed on rear wheel drive. It's an old outdated opinion for cars of this size and power level.
