Have you ever played a game online and been beaten badly by what sounded like a pre-pubescent little brat? Now imagine that scenario, replacing the pre-teen with one hell of a focused baby, and instead of pressing buttons, he's driving a car at ludicrous speeds.

Don't be too sure of that statement. Many of us laugh in the face of a CVT, or even more so at the new WRX CVT, "a rally car with a CVT, the heck you say" this quote was directly taken from one of out more proper commentators. But since announcing it, many have wondered if you can really hoon a car with a CVT? I…
