    And I never went to a bachelor party, had too much to drink, drove home after a massive brawl where 10 cops showed up, went airborne off the road at over 100 mph and did $30k in damage to a new Porsche, and almost killed me and my best friend (who didn't drive for 3 years afterwards because he was so scared after the incident).

    Ah to be young and stupid again.....

    You were still responding on May 18 not March..... And others have added more since then..... Don't like to have your young stupidity brought up again?

    Don't worry all of us were young and stupid at one point too. At some point we all grow up though!

    Right, March was just like a couple months ago. A thread's not dead until no one has commented on it for a bout a year.. this one's still nice and active.

    Sounds intense! haha. I actually woke up this morning with a notification on my phone about this thread which gave me a good laugh. Thanks! haha
    We all need to do a few dumb things when we're young. I'm 20 and the worst things I do is race on the interstate when people mess with me first....which the only car that has has been a new challenger. Needless to say I won. (:

    Offcourse you can! We are still running our stock 6 speed tranny in our rallycar, after 10!! years of beating in the forests it is still smooth and relieable! only had to make some new linkage-bushings, wich we fitted one year ago! Many thousands of beating rallykilometres on this one!! (car was Norwegian champion 2004&2005!)
    I am not telling you to beat the **** out of your tranny, but as is my opinion its a really rigid one!

    My guess is your driver knows how to drive as well.. many people do not.

    Maybe thats the thruth, but with 3 different owners/drivers I still believe that the tranny is really strong! in the last 4 years only changed one clutch! Sometimes there is no time to clutch while shifting as well! hehe!

    You're also talking about a six speed. WRX comes from the factory with a five speed that is substantially weaker than the six speed. For a point of reference, the shop I use rates the five speed good for around 330wtq, where as they consider the six speed capable of holding 550+wtq.

    So, just in case you are wondering, little troll, saying "haha" "lol" "lmao" after what you say doesn't make you look like less of a douche. Actually it makes you seem like more of one. Be thankful you didn't post this on NASIOC, you would have been brutalized. At least here people are civil and tried to give you good advice. Instead you just told us how much you don't care and since the car hasn't detonated for 6 months it must be ok.

    lol.

    LMAO.

    haha.

    Jesus.
