    RussianProdigy,
    Please learn to drive that AWD tranny effectively. You can't drop the clutch on a WRX without damaging it...also warrenty won't cover that damage!

    Slip the clutch. It's better and cheaper to burn out and replace a clutch than to replace the transmission.

    I usually reve to about 3K while letting the clutch out. As it grabs, start giving more gas. Once it's fully out, to the floor with the gas.

    Also be careful on the shifts to 2nd & 3rd.

    With patients and practice and you'll be able to open a big can O whoop a$$ on most cars.

    "DON'T DROP THE CLUTCH" should be stuck in your mind...and maybe on your dash.

    but keep practicing, manual trannies take a long time to master but once you get it down you'll love it!
    Don't feel bad I have driven a manual for 15 years. I missed the 2nd to 3rd shift in a race against an older Porsche. I think I slammed the shifter somewhere in between 1st and 3rd. Emabarrassing as hell. It can happen to the best of us.

    R32 is a very nice car, despite the wieght and the 30k price tag,

    you gotta watch out for some of those VW's golfs and (old) bugs, they are hella sleepers, before i got my WRX i had a 98 VWgti VR6 i had intake, exhaust and a neuspeed ecu, i ran a 14.8 with some BF goodrich sticky's up front. and stock 173hp and 172tq, at the motor, thats pretty decent,

    dispite all that my wrx would walk my old golf, but if i had an r32 it would be a differant story,
