Been lurking around for a month now. Can't believe I've put 2800 miles already. Wasn't my first choice but I'm glad I picked my ST. Also my first domestic. Now, if I can stop all unnecessary errands..

Aside from a few minor fit and finish, car is throughly enjoyable and handles the Colorado winter well riding on blizzaks. On dry, car does seem very bouncy at times. Hauling ass on gears 2/3/4, there are notable torque steering with these snow tires on dry. Is the torque steer also notable on the factory summers in 2 to 4th causing the traction light to flicker? I think I drove maybe 20 easy miles on the factory summers before switching to the snows.

I find it more so with the Summers, due to the added grip. You will see the Trac light flicker 1-3 on the Summer skins if you are hammering it. Enjoy!
