    does that mean that you can only change the diff to the stock 35/65 and 50/50. if i were to spend all that money, i would at least want some diffrent rations also. then it would be worth it.

    If you guys really wana learn how to drift, dont waste the 4 bucks watching tokyo rice, spend like 1.5k on racing school. SOOOO much more fun.

    I did Skip Barber racing school, it was a blast. They had me running 911 Porsche's, m3's, RX-8's. it was well worth it.

    Again, 99.99999% of the folks who buy AWD cars don't plan on drifting.

    w00t for the F&F reference's.

    Somebody please lock this up.

    he only had to pay between 275 and 375 bucks to get the dccd. thats worth it for sure.
    plus, he had no choice if he wanted to get the 6spd tranny in his WRX

    The center diff is inside the 6-speed transmission, and as far as I know the diff is either open or locked. If it's open then it's 35%front/65%rear, and if it's locked then it's 50%front/50%rear. The DCCD will vary the amount of locking to move power as needed.

    +1 to Skip Barber, I've read quite a bit of the stuff on their site - haven't found myself able to justify the costs yet though. Two days for $3k is a bit steep - there's just other things I would rather do with the money. Still, they've been around for a long time, and I've never heard anything bad from people who went.

    Which course did you take?

    No - that was for the DCCD unit. The labor was $90 an hour and ran about 10 hours.

    I didn't need to hook up the DCCD control. I drove the car for several weeks without it - it just runs open at all times which is perfectly fine. I choose to do the DCCD upgrade because I'm a toy freak and wanted to play with it. Plus in NJ we get a random snowstorm or two where I would like to be able to lock the center diff.

    i took the one day racing school. it was like 1200 bucks. even in just 1 day, i learned alot. they first took u on a skid pad, then they took you yo a breaking corse. adter that they took u to an auto-x corse and then lunch down at the track. it happned to be that the porsche club of america rented the track that day so there were alot of nice porsches. after that they took u back onto the auto-x and then on the skid pad again. then they took u to the mini track and then onto their full size street track. i did it in lime rock, ct. really great track and definatly worth it. they let u drive m3s, 911 porsches, rx-8, and i think one porsche turbo.

    i don't know about other years, but my '07 sti's dccd allows anything from a locked diff to 35/65 on a sliding scale. you can bias the car at several different increments between the two extremes. i've found that the ability to lock the diff can be very advantageous in deeper snow. usually, i just use the automatic setting which determines the best possible distribution of engine power.

    As a side note, the amount of power my car can put out can easily overwhelm the differential, which then allows a significant amount of it to go to my spinning rear tires (since they quickly become the path or least resistance when cornering sharply). This can create a very effective 'drift', although i haven't exploited this at very high speeds for the simple fact that i don't want to crash my car. My uncle is a mechanic, and he explained to me the type of differential that subaru uses allows this by means of its mechanism. i'm not sure if this applies to non-sti or not. can anybody shed some further light on this?

    Sweet bump from the dead.

    After we get done doing the HPDE events at the Circuit we always go out and slide around. Drifting in a WRX is not that hard, or dangerous. Just don't do it on the street. Granted, the tires I slid on where a set of Hankooks that had a traction rating of about "We're as sticky as a greased pig". Sliding in a controlled environment, good, sliding on the street, fail.
