>all these fags bitching about muh fwd vs rwd
Anyone know much about the Ver7 sti wheels? Are they forged or cast? Some guy in my area wants to trade for 17 inch stock 11 wrx wheels.
I was kind of leaning on avoiding them anyway, since my car is already WRB and blue with gold wheels is so cheesy and overplayed. I actually dig the gunmetal stock wheels but he was offering cash on top so I was playing with it in my head.

As opposed to;

To get the thread back on track
my friends and I are working on an STI, what we want to do, is to purchase a carbon manocaque (i can't spell it) drivers tub, then put the engine in the mid rear area of the car. My question is, how do we even go about transferring the engine to the mid-rear?
We'll hire pros as needed, but we want to do it ourselves as much as possible
>then put the engine in the mid rear area of the car. My question is, how do we even go about transferring the engine to the mid-rear?
This seems like a lot more trouble than it's worth.
Have a '99 LGT, bought it from auction, zero history, didn't even have an axleback exhaust
Been my winter car for 2 years now.. zero issues... I"M SCARED WHAT IS GOING TO EXPLODE?!?!
D-does anyone else have a new FA20T WRX as well?
It's been 175k (rough?) miles and it hasn't happened OR it did and was replaced.
Even though that is common, I'm actually not worried about it.
What ELSE should I be on the lookout for?
Just got a new 2016 wrx, what are the first mods I should look into?
>implying it's better to pay that much for something that's only a tad bit better.
>Not getting a focus RS instead for that kind of cash
>a tad bit better
I wouldn't call upgraded suspension and more power "a tad"
although I do agree that with a choice between the 2015+ STi vs that new RS I'd take the new RS.
But I would go for a 2014 STi all day. I just think the new one looks terrible. It's too bad the Evo basically trumped it as far as performance goes during that generation. 04 models were a little more neck and neck.
>mfw Subaru is for poor people with zero knowledge of automechanics.
Subaru is a meme kids.
Yea I agree, if price was no objection, i'll take 2015+ STi. I actually like the new style.
Now what I really want.. is a 22B.
A man can dream..
Subarus are a fucking pain in the ass to work on, dude.
oh man... I haven't laughed that hard in ages
Bump. Thanks for the subie thread my friend. What's everyone's favorite subaru ever made? I think the 5spd 2.2l na imprezas and legacy's were some of the best.
How do I make a forester fun?
Might have to borrow my dad's forester for the rest of the winter while I'm up here in the mountains. It's just a soulless machine and there's not even an aux cord bros.
What year? Yeah, the steering is a little numb at first, but if it's a second gen you should either have no TCS or a button to disable it, and then you will experience sick skidz for days with snow.
notice it's exclusively subie faggots with MUH BEST AWD SYSTEM understeering and cutting lines. get fucked poorfags
How much would you pay for a 2005 Legacy GT with 180k on the odo and what problems are common with them?
>video has two subarus
>one cuts lanes
>the other maintains a decent line, dips into the other lane for a moment and gets pulled over
>the entire rest of the video is various other performance cars understeering, oversteering and spinning out
And your conclusion was
>notice it's exclusively subie faggots with MUH BEST AWD SYSTEM understeering and cutting lines.
It depends. Those lanes are divided with double yellow lines, which are illegal to cross. Likely because it's a blind corner on the other side. Look at how many guys almost hit motorcyclists.
If it's dashed lines then you can cross into opposing traffic to overtake.
But I guess it's more fun to think Americans are dumb and bad at driving eh?
>tfw 2.5RS and want a 22B
it's a tough, naturally aspirated feel
yes, american road markings are mostly retarded.
you'll get solid double yellows for miles in straight lines where safe overtaking is easy.
most people here will be okay with that because it's a crutch for their retardation.
i know yuropoor countries would have them marked as dashed lines.
the best road markings i've seen in this regard are in the uk, it's like they've deliberately been set up for hooning, but it's actually to give the driver the most accurate information possible regards what's coming ahead in terms of dips, crests and other hazards
I've actually considered moving to Vermont. I'm just divided on what I truly want. I grew up in Chicago so there's a certain appeal that living near a huge city has to me, but ever since I've started living in Arizona I've come to appreciate the simple joys of hiking, dirt road driving, and shooting old washing machines filled with thermite.
I guess I really just want a lot of land with easy accessibility to the city, in a state with lax gun laws. I'm not sure where I'd find that.
