I got my flame suit on suckers!
2013 WRX Base Model -
Anyway, I've got about 500 miles on the car, and I just learned about rev matching today...
Could anyone please help reassure me on some things...
1. When starting in first gear, I usually rev it at or around 1500 rpms to get up and going. I'm worried about stalling... (Laugh Here)
How long do I have until something in my transmission gives? is it 10k miles or 100k? (Give this vague info) What is the first thing to wear out due to retard shifting syndrome?
2. Please explain rev matching in retard shifting syndrome words.
-My experience here is pretty bad. So when going from 4th to 5th (5Spd) I usually take .5/sec to shift and by then my RPMS have dropped from 4k to 1-2K RPMS.
I tend to push in the clutch and shift to 5th let the clutch all the way out and then start pressing on the gas pedal. In fact, I do this for all the gears... And downshifting feels even worse.
