Torque is measurement of twist, right?

I hear twisting helps.

Spencer, what Hawk pads did you go with?

I wonder if rear pads with much more initial bite would make the vectoring feel noticeably different.

Torque vectoring is only on the front brakes.

Odd, but I suppose subarus are more understeer prone. So front pads with more initial bite then. Doesn't Acura's SH-AWD use the rears for vectoring?

Yeah, some people on Nasioc are saying 'Torque vectoring' is actually just 'brake vectoring'. 
(Reference; https://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2713256 Post 10, 11, 12.)
 
I'd like to learn more about this, though. Not much online to research about the topic unfortunately :(

Welll well welll... time for me to spout more evo glory (RIP  :'( ). Mitsubishi did proper torque vectoring with the AYC system, as far as I can find first manufacturer to bring it to market in 1996 in the Evo 4.

I believe so. Car gets pretty good reviews handling wise.

Too bad Subaru followed suit.

I would swim to the bottom, and drink my way up.
But the sea isn't vodka, and I'm not a duck.
So give me the vodka, and stfu.

You're implying the WRX and BRZ aren't fun cars?

We can be straight forward about this, the BRZ is boring in stock form. It wouldn't be so bad if the car wasn't hyped so hard from the start.

I am indifferent to the WRX. Subaru has gotten less exciting over the years in general.

Still a decent platform if your intention is to modify them from the start.

Some new shots...

Car wash on Friday. They were paving a new road near my house and sadly, I unknowingly drove onto it and couldn't turn around. There's now about 50 speckles of tar on the sides of the car that I'll need to Tar-X to remove soon. Hopefully get that done this week...

Back at the car wash for 10Sec to wash his car before we went to check out the illmotion show on Sunday..

This is a still image that I heavily edited into a roller ;D  Can you tell?

Also shot this of my friend Ed's car (I don't think he's on WSC).
