    Uhh yeah, let's have a moment of silence for first gear. I'm going to get a sticker for my back window that says piss on Subaru. Possibly could have been prevented LOL but my transmisson has been getting noisier and noisier lately anyways. Southern Oregon Subaru said that there was nothing wrong with it way back when I first took it in. Then again it is S.O.S.

    I sent a PM to DS1 motorsports to ask about the stock 5speed they're selling. If that doesn't work out I'l get mine rebuilt. Anybody want to recommend a tranny shop? The kind of tranny that shifts, not the kind you accidentally end up in a cheap Ashland motel room with. (should of noticed the adam's apple LOL)

    long time no see,
    Steve
    yea, i spent the most of sunday checking out my car, lots of oil, no visiable cracks, im guessing a oil line somewhere came loose. hopefully u get another trans, it was nice to meet you out there steve

    Good, that's awesome that it wasn't anything major. Nice meeting you as well. It was also pretty cool not to be the only one having mechanical problems on my run LOL.

    yea, im gonna go by some dealerships and check out the 06 wrx tr. i like the two tone interiors on the subaru page so hopefully they look just as good in person. i dont wanna dump any more money into a honda, even if a k20z3 swap would be a nice addition.

    Yeah, I've been checking out a few transmission shops in the area getting price estimates, etc... I've also been pm a member on the board a bit about shipping me a tranny from IL. It would be nice to do the work local but money's kinda tight. I have the next two days off so we'll see how it goes. I never realized how much I enjoy the wagon until it's incapacitated. I'm seriously considering putting my t-bird back together, though.

    meet soon? i havent been driving the sube lately... some MAJOR issues with brakes, stemming from the use of really thin rotors ( i hope)
    ordered Brembo replacement rotors (nothign special) and Hawk HPS Street Pads....couldnt afford lines, once again!
    bmw addict. often a practicing rwd purist.
    still coping with how ready the impreza platform is to outperform my skillset with its own.
    out there in the forests...

    What now? You go through rotors faster than most people go through pads!

    no no my rotors on there now are the stock ones that have been resurfaced a lot. i put them on after the accident b/c the ones on during the accident (racingbrake slotted) were scuffed up while the wheel bearing made the wheel unstable. so the stock ones are wayy to thin and now causing the problems....whew. lets go for a drive soon or a meet of something...maybe next friday we could make plans...
