    As usual, the mags have the figures skewed. I'll lay money down that with the same drivers, a stock LGT will beat a stock WRX in every straightline category. What is this 4500 rev limit that is being spoken of? Someone has some misinformation.

    Having owned one of everr vehicle Subaru offers in the sports line (yeah..including a Spec C) I think I can speak from an area of decent knowledge.

    Oh, you caaannnnn launch a LGT higher than that but it will reward you by not moving an inch. The clutch won't engage and you'll smoke the hell out of it.

    Mine has exhibited repeated +4500 luanches with no ill effects, clutch pedal "catching" etc. The myth of the clutch delay valve on the LGT persists even here I see. Although no TSB's exist on the matter yet, I am of the opinion it is due to early production models having poor quality clutch fingers. But that is just my opinion. I can only truly go by my experience, and that consists of no clutch issues what-so-ever.

    I'm planning an aftermarket clutch asap for that very reason. I'm going to pick up the FMIC as soon as it's available, along with a full exhaust, so I might as well plan for the clutch now.

    Good idea. I'll probably do the same eventually. Are you going ACT or Exedy or some other brand (Cobb, etc.). Just curious, and apologies for the OT.

    Probably ACT if they make one for the push-style setup. I've used ACT since they came on the market for DSMs and I've loved every one. I even met Dirk Starsken at one of the DSM Shootout cookouts at Dave Buschur's house (back then the crowd was small enough to fit in his yard!)
