  1. Here are just a couple of threads to sample: https://www.clubwrx.net/threads/02-03-wrx-problems.134305094/ https://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=665334&highlight=2002+transmission+problems It seems the consensus is, if you don't drive/treat your car like an idiot (clutch dumps, launches, misshifts) and keep "close to stock" power, it should last. That said, track abuse is exponentially harder on components and systems than street driving. Seems like NASOIC is the place to be if owning a Subaru.
  2. Do some research into the transmissions on these cars. IIRC, 2nd gear is made of glass. Depending on how far you want to take the power, I think there's a sorted swap of a Porsche transmission.
  3. @cabowabo Can you share a pic and basic specs of you sim setup? Congrats! i will tune in live for the next one. @Hollywood, thanks for posting the replay.
  4. On our first family computer, the turbo button took it from 8Mhz to 12Mhz. LOL!!!!

    Uppity

    So for those of us that have Netflix, I recommend the documentary "Uppity". It's the story of Willy T. Ribbs, someone who was unknown to me before yesterday. It's a really compelling story, and his career crosses paths with the likes of Rousch, Newman, Hobbs, Preuitt, Eccelstone, and more. Worth a watch.
  6. I'd still run them provided they have good life left.
  7. Better you find it in the garage at home, than it find you on track.
  8. Not the cultural lesson I ever thought I'd learn on this forum, but that makes a lot of sense. As well, many Latin countries dont' have plumbing systems that handle flushed paper waste. So at work, there can be little piles of toilet paper on the floor next to the toilet.
  9. Hope you can make the Cresson event!

    hmmm, would make me wonder what else wasn't disclosed about the car.... Glad you're getting it sorted out and upgraded along the way, should be a little rocketship.

    With cruise control on!?!?!?!
  13. Looks like they do. https://shop.edgeaddicts.com/MSR-Cresson-31-Nov-18-2019-MSR-Nov-18.htm i know that's only for Monday, but maybe you can shoot them an email about Sunday only.
  14. I run the NC front bar in the rear, @Hollywood. I like it alot. You can check it out at EA Cresson if you want. Also, @Hollywood and @V6Donut, i think the 3x price from Kingpin includes you sending them all of your control arms and they custom machine the bushings to fit, plus a bunch of other cleaning/zinc plating/etc. stuff. Is it worth it? Not for me, YMMV.
  15. Bushings: I am using the ballade sphericals myself. There was one issue on install where one of the bushing diameters was undersize and was not a press fit into the control arm. They quickly remedied the situation and sent another bushing after a few email exchanges. I would call them to see if they have them in stock. I was pleased with my transaction, but their reputation is not stellar as of late on the interwebs/forums. @V6Donut runs sphericals from a different supplier with success, you might hit him up for his connection. Also, i took my bushings apart (inside guides from brass bushing) and put a thin coating of shin-etsu grease. I have no idea if this is beneficial, i just did it. Drive shafts: I feel your pain, peace of mind on track is worth it though. Oil Cooler: I have Sakebomb's "nicer" setup with the mocal sandwich plate and Setrab cooler. i use the 19 row cooler and 180 deg thermostat.
