    I know, right! My tuner called it the "Inverse Nascar Map".

    Mate,if you read the post properly....it has nothing to do with "bragging" it ask what an individual would choose to purchase, either it be an STI or a standard REX, if you didn't get my point I bought the car because of the COLOR.
    And it cost me a **** load to get it to perform the way it does today. You don't have to defend your precious STI to me.
    Summing up..... you can purchase a standard rex and mod the car to your liking. If you don't have the funds up front to purchase an STI don't be dishearted by a standard car and do it in stages and funds permitting you will end up with something unique.

So I upted for the colour, which in hindsight wasn't the cheapest option by far.
    To cut a very long mod list short, my WRX produces 385 HP on all 4 wheels and eats STI's for lunch, and I still have a car that doesn't look like every other WRX/STI out there.
    Agreed, I have a 2.5 U.S. spec STI engine with lots of goodies but other than a heavy duty clutch I still have the standard 5 speed gearbox.
    So it all comes down to personal taste at the end of the day.
    uhm..ur running 385 whp do you launch it starting by 0 ?... and you are still using standard 5 speed gearbox? awesome...ive heard the 5 speed gearbox do not support that much hp and also a racing clutch... how you do it T_T!! thats my main worry explain me pls

    First off all, launching cars is asking for trouble as nothing is bullit proof especially if you are running high HP.
    Many of my friends had to get their cars home on traytops after attending the drags, it's not neccesarily the gearbox that let's go, but more than likey drive shafts and clutches.
    I don't launch, full stop. At a recent race meeting a friend of mine did in his 3rd gear in his 6 speed STI box, which is certainly not common. What I'm trying to say is, anything can be broken if you try hard enough, I feel that I have nothing to proof and certainly not amongst friends, that know what the car is capable off.

    so...u never launch it , full stop? what about drags? sometimes we like to enjoy the drags and have fun , u never assist to drags ? and yes...if u try hard you have the probabilities to break up ur car
