It's funny to see all the WRX owners not hitting low 14's and blaming the car or false advertising Makes are cars look bad and slower then they actually are.. I don't mind .. I get one of these witnesses and race me .. and in the end say... DAMN! what mods did you do to your wrx or STi ? I smiled and replied... "nothing" it's all about knowing how to drive it
Do what you want.. but you're not going to get the full potential out of this car by any other means... let alone be consistent.
I want to thank the moderator TypeC for clearing this issue up and hopefully help any newbies out there to understand how to drop the clutch properly. Like i said, if you're scared... pump the tires to at least 42 ( you could go even 48 psi) until you get over the fear and get the feel for it. If you're launching correctly using this method, it only hurts the tires No clutch smell and no gear shredding!
Please review this entire forum >>> Slip the clutch, drop the clutch? Whats the differnce
Now I'm more confused than before, no one seems to agree to dropping or slipping.
