    With mid-October being three years with the GTI, it was time to start looking for a replacement. I have been kicking around the idea of getting a used Justa to use to run H stock class in SCCA solo and start doing track days with a goal of getting into NASA TT events. I found several candidates, but just couldn't pull the trigger. I found a car for sale that had been on the list when I was looking at the GTI, went and test drive it two Saturdays ago and then went back on Friday and bought it. Introducing the FiST of Fury...

    Nice choice. I like the FiST. I'll be interested in hearing your comparison to the GTI.

    A little more info...

    2015
    16k on it
    Standard seats
    Stock 205x40x17 wheels on stock Bridgestone Potenza re050a
    Livernois 93 octane tune (have read that it can raise HP +18 and TQ +65)

    Did a short run into Hocking Hills on Sunday and really enjoyed it. Kept it low key because I was getting reacquainted with shifting and had two friends with me who were also driving new to them cars. As far as comparing it to the GTI, it is hard to go into specifics yet. Planning on doing an autocross event in a couple of weeks, so I will play with the two different TC options (partially off and fully off). Also doing a longer Hocking Hills drive the week after that, so hopefully will be more acclimated to the handling. It will be interesting to push the car because it is between 400-500 lbs lighter and with the tune putting out roughly the same hp and greater tq.

    The four door is part of what made me give it another look. When I was first considering a change, besides a Justa I looked at the Abarth (knowing that Jan has a tune for it now) and the twins. I just wasn't ready to give up the practicality of four doors yet.

    Good job. Repeating myself - So many cars, so little time. Drive as many of them as you can.

    Already have, just thought I would share with the locals what I'm driving now. Have you backed your car out of the garage recently?
