Carefully selected videos to almost make it look like I know what I'm doing.

Hotbits are going great! Probably the best mod I've done. Really appreciate them when doing tracks that I previously struggled with or couldn't previously do. I swapped my rear springs from 2.2Kg/mm to 1.8Kg/mm yesterday. That greatly improved the balance of the car on road over bumps. Should hopefully improve the offroad ride even more, but haven't tested yet. Got a bit to add to my build thread.

Is the difference due mostly to extra momentum or something else? It seems they all have open diffs?

It could well be advantageous for many off roaders to learn to drive off road on a Foresters to more fully appreciate the art of picking the right line. When I first hit the dirt, I did it in. 351 Cleveland engined Falcon. It was so nose heavy it would get bogged very easily. So you learned the importance of picking the right line. When the Forrie came along, this experience was most helpful. Best to rely on taking the right line than relying solely on the car to do all the work.

If this is indeed the case, what is the point of making comparisons with other makes/models. What is really being compared is the drivers.
