    RallySport Direct's 2015 WRX STI Build






    When we first received our STI, we were hoping to build the ultimate street car with a bit more focus on track as we were willing to sacrifice comfort for more performance, but we also did not want it to be pure track. During our build, we were hit with something that would change the course of the build, and that thing was SEMA. We always wanted the STI to be in SEMA, but we were not building it for that purpose. With our car being confirmed for SEMA, we really had to change what we were doing and why we were doing it. No longer could we go to track days as we had to keep the car clean and free from damage. We primary focused on mods that would be good for a show car, but still in the back of our mind we wanted to build this car how we wanted to build it... to a degree. With the car being featured in SEAM 14 and 15, and with SEMA 16 coming up, we are trying to think of ways to make the car different and stand out once again. Join us along the way trying to get the car ready for 2016 SEMA!

    Looking forward to what RSD does with this one.

    Are y'all going to R&D a WRX as well? Really hoping to see what will be done with the FA20.

    So an update on the car, as I have put on about 330miles on it the last few days.

    First the things that I like.
    Suspension and Chassis out of the box is amazing! Having had an EVO X before, I am not afraid to say that apples to apples the new STi will outrun it. The new steering rack will also make this car great for autoX! The stock interior is fantastic compared to the outgoing GR, I dont like it as much as the GD personally but its leaps and bounds ahead of the GR. Stock tires are amazing, but are a little loud. The new sound system, is very good for Subaru standards (if that means anything). Last is the look of the car, every time I part the car I cant help but turn around and look at it. Some thing the car is very plain, but that is not a bad thing as I have yet to have a single cop look at the car

    Things that I hate.
    Stock seats are terrible, I mean they are THAT BAD! Yes they look nice, but do not hold you in at all ( I am 6'4" and 230lbs). The noise tube is driving me NUTS, it makes the car sound cheap and I on purpose have the stereo loud enough so that I cant hear it. The car has a big blind spot on both sides around the rear 1/4 panels, I find myself checking them 2-3 times before I change lanes. Reverse camera is a big "small", yes its nice but I wish it was a higher quality lens that had a wider angle.

    That should cover basics for now , we will have more info as we get more miles on the car

    Subd on this one as well. Can't wait. Interesting on the seats. You'd think they would have upgraded them a bit.

    Its not that the seats are bad, they are just not very supportive for the type of car that this is. Having had a EVO X and S4 as personal cars, those cars had way way better seats for a car in a similar market segment. I would have just wanted more side support.
    With that being said, the seats are comfortable. I find them more comfortable then any factory US seat ever offered. Just wish they had more lateral support.

    Ahhhh that makes more sense now. How are they compared to say, 2012 WRX seats? I like mine a bit, but also wish I had a little more bolster. But I came from an 05 STI which had worn seats that made my sciatica flare up in my ass

    I hated your STi seats, Mikie. I don't know why everyone kept swapping those damn things into Bugeyes
