  • I was looking over my friends WRX and noticed there is valve in the hydraulic clutch line which limits how quickly the clutch can be released. If you side step the clutch it won’t slam closed, Subaru must have known the drivetrain needed protection. I’m not saying it’s a good idea though.

  • Awesome car. I sure understand, why people would still buy it. However, to say, that Colin McRae were the best rally driver ever, might be stretching it. He sure were very good and in a class on his own in his time and even outside UK all rally fans were in shock, when he crashed and died. Also because he was known as a genuine gentleman. But, if you ask any rally enthusiast, who the best rally driver were ever, you most likely will receive a long list of names of great Finish drivers and also a sure mention of Carlos Sainz. Colin McRae were not even the only great Subaru driver, Peter Solberg from Norway for instance were the top driver on the WRC circuit for even longer time than Colin McRae and also won the 2003 championship. However, one man stands out to me, though he is maybe so contemporary still, that he has not moved into the list of rally legends and that just has to be Sebastien Loeb. He actually dominated the sport for more than a decade, winning 9 straight championships from 2004 to 2012. Essentially, all those years everyone else in the WRC drove for the second place in the championship, just like everyone else in the hay days of Michael Schumacher drove for second place in F1; that dominant Sebastien Loeb were! In my book he just have to be the best rally driver ever and on top he have had success in other motorsports as well. By the way, I'm a Dane, so I have no stake in this that way; I can't remember a single great Danish rally driver even.

  • Can't beat older cars. (pre 2006) Pure raw driving. No fancy driving "aids". Subarus are amazing once you look after them. The drive makes up for the plastics. I've a 1996 1.6 and it's the basic model but still so much fun! And loud. Watch the heavy boot lid though. Not fun when it falls and tries to chop your head off when you're rooting in the boot.

  • Each variation model over the decades also was available in an RA model. No fancy stuff roll up windows, roof scoop much lighter than the sti models. Earlier models had no airbags. Better limited slip differentials. Basically an entry level model for rallying. Just stick a roll cage in it. WRX STI RA.
