You have to hit the brakes a little later before entering a corner and you have to apply throttle a bit sooner before leaving it. But doing things like that can end up as a catastrophic and potentially costly failure (trust me, I’ve been there), but for whatever reason, the 2018 Subaru WRX STI that I was piloting around the Area 27 Motorsports Park in British Columbia, Canada, kept me planted on the road no matter how fast I tried to go.
It’s hard to take the rally-bred, winged wonder that is the Subaru WRX STI and make it more aggressive. That wing is aggressing you right now. But that was Subaru’s plan for the 2018 model year, and while a minor facelift is the most obvious change, the rest of the road car’s updates aren’t quite as obvious: The front brakes are now six-piston Brembos, the suspension was retuned for increased stability and Subaru reworked the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system’s Driver-Controllable Center Differential.
