ReviewIn order to get maximum performance,
you have to drive this car like a
Japanese sport bike. Do not up shift
if it will put the engine revs below
3500 rpm's. This engine is just too
flat and unresponsive below 3500 rpm's.
A six cylinder engine of the same
displacement would have been a far
superior way to go. Another 75
horsepower would help too. This 5 cyl
is funky. It revs smoothly, but has
trouble with smoothness at the upper
end of the power band. Launches can be
problematic too. Keep the revs high
and work the clutch. The biggest
complaint I have though is that this
car, even though it is awd, suffers
from torque steer. Fittsugen.
