    RallySport Direct's 2015 WRX Build






    The new WRX is one of the cars I have personally been waiting forever since the press release. I have been wanting something I can drive year round that had the same sharpness as my BRZ, and something a bit more practical. Subaru had got me excited for the new chassis and the new engine, and for good reason, they truly are phenomenal, but let’s touch on this later. All of this anticipation finally came to a head when I received a phone call, “Rick, have someone bring you down to the dealership”, I knew exactly why I had been called and what I was about to drive home, well sort of…

    Arriving at the dealership I was presented with 2 beautiful white, giant scooped, Japanese built rockets. One a WRX and one the STi version. I was actually wanting to drive the new WRX. With so many changes, a great price point and the new FA engine, I was hoping I could drive it back to the shop. Well I must have been good this year as I was handed the keys to the FA20 powered beast. I immediately got in, instantly started adjusting the intuitive center dash screen setting it up for Temp, Boost pressure and throttle position. After pushing every single button in the car at least 2 or 3 times, I adjusted the mirrors, adjusted the seat, got a feel for the clutch grab point and I was off with a smile from ear to ear.

    As of writing this, I have put 89 miles on the car, but that was in one night, with many more miles and smiles to come. First order of business is breaking the new engine properly, which is not always the most fun way to enjoy your new car, but this will ensure we can enjoy this car without worry for years to come. Without being able to really flog the car my initial impressions should be taken with a grain of salt, but so far all I can say is the new FA20 is a torque monster, I almost felt as if I had to be careful with my throttle inputs as boost would come on hard, and RPM’s would rise quickly in any of the lower gears. The chassis must be made from granite as it felt rock solid, I was actually able to lift a wheel pulling into my steep driveway at home, all while hearing the brakes stabbing at the traction less wheel desperately trying to send power to the other side. The steering wheel…. Oh the steering wheel! I wish I could express more excitement over the internet, but what a massive improvement over the previous generations, it just feels right in your hands. Subaru also answered my one wish I repeat every single year… “please make the steering rack quicker”, and they did just that. The Steering response finally matches the agility of the car, and I cannot thank Subaru enough, even if it is a bit vague, it’s still a massive improvement overall. Oh, and last but not least, the grip. I kept thinking, there is no way this car should have this much grip. You just simply throw it into a corner, body roll is almost non-existent, and the tires just seem to find grip, and more grip and even more grip, and it just never gives up. Not wanting to wad up a brand new shop car, I did not push it too hard, but I can only imagine the limit of this suspension, chassis and tires is extremely high, almost scary high for a bone stock car.

    We will report back once we get some more miles on the car, and some more driving under our belts. We are so excited for these two new cars and I personally can’t wait to see where we take them.

    Thanks guys, still trying to break in the car and needing to find the time to go for long drives. So far I am just loving this car though. I will post up a better review once we get some more miles on it!

    Thanks,
