To agree with many others, yes the 02' tranny was more or less glass. Granted, a lot had to do with the driver, but in the same sense, a lot had to do with them being built terribly.
It does get annoying how everyone pegs the STi and newer WRX's having crap trannies as well just because 1 years they were terrible
On another note, I dont get that many people claiming they walk wrx's/sti's. I mean, if they have a fast car then I would totally understand. But whenever someone has a car that I KNOW is not capable of beating a properly driven wrx and they are bragging about how they walk them I just say "I have a WRX, would you care to run and "walk" another wrx?"
That usually shuts them up pretty fast. I have dont that to a few guys driving cars like Preludes, Integra's, Mustangs, etc... It is funny to watch their ego get shattered after talking all that smack and then getting called out and either losing or knowing they will lose before they even enter the race
