After changing my mind 100 times over, I finally made a decision. Truth be told, I'm still
not confident I made the correct one. Don't get me wrong, car drives like a dream. It's super tight, responsive, and sexy as hell, but I'm just not able to wrap my head around the short gearing and the overall lack of balls
, just yet.
It seems like I'm shifting into 3rd @ 25, 4th @ 35, and cruising at 40ish in 5th for fuck's sake. Sure, I'm still in "break-in" and haven't really taken it above 4K rpm, but I'm not so sure dancing closer to redline is gonna give me what I'm looking for. I know I'll never get that kick I'm used to from a boosted car, so maybe it's not so much the lack of power, but the transition from FI to NA that's the issue, but chances it's a bit of both, and I may have made the wrong choice afterall.
It would probably help having driven FR more. Maybe the lack of straight line power could be replaced with throwing myself full on into some twisties, but the RWD freaks me out a little bit. I'm totally not used to that shit yet. I'll have to get a job delivering tofu, maybe...
Anyway, it is what it is, I guess. The IRL will go to a new home and I'll just have to make due until the new Supra comes out.
