If you don't mind 2 pedals I'd say keep the older and grab a newer for fun and go from there, I have NOT tried an autocrapic but hear there are many things to do to them to make them great wheelers and they can crawl from what I've gathered. They are a lot bigger though so beware of that and they do have horrid overhangs (I still hit in some places in the back)

I've wheeled the piss out of it ...
I also have a gl hatch which will run circles around it..
I would get a 90's outback and lift it and swap an 5spd dual range in it.

I had a 4eat turbo, and it would crawl, the 5spd, not even close to the same.
Your newer era engine is much better at being power producing responsive, so it can compensate some, but nothing like the old D/R with hi and lo.

AWD has a center diff so Just one wheel spin to get stuck
D/R has the lowest gear
Ive had both with 5 speed , no knowlege with auto

With the auto, you can add a switch to lock the center clutch packs. This pretty much makes it true 4wd, and doesn't burn out the clutch packs if you're slipping a lot.
Do tell... Sounds like a worthwhile addition to my 2000 Outback. How do you do it?
