Stock bugeye WRX. The SW20 is really not a beginners car.
The SW20 is just not a forgiving car for error. The WRX will understeer and is much more forgiving.
I cannot tell you how many times someone has come up to me and asked about SW20’s saying that they want one. Goes something like this every time…
Me: “Well, what are you driving now?”
Them: “I drive some sort of slow economy car that is not eve remotely sporty and it’s great but I need something faster, the SW20 seems perfect…”
Me: “Stop right there, get something more tame first.”
Them: “I can totally handle this car I swear, I drive the crap out of my slow economy car, I can handle a sports car!!!!!!”
