FYI, JUN appears to be heavily into modifying AWD subarus into RWD for drifting purposes. Folks who are interested might try looking to them for information. I don't have the time to look for links of info at the moment.

We had it at subiefest 2 and Bobby drifted it and drag raced that night. Its mainly built for Drag. But Bobby likes drifting!
Bobby did a write up on it here awhile back and posted up some pics.
link to my favorite pic of it at Subiefest. We also just got another sponsor!! Endura Tech FTW !!!
Mitsubo, can you be more specific on exactly what you used and how you installed the R180 Diff and Axles? I'm thinking about picking up a used GC8 and swapping in the RA gear set and using the R180.
i know, i know....i hate to bring up an old thread but i have a couple questions......
how is the r160 & cusco diff holding up mitsubo? any problems that you've run into since your last post?The rear diff and axles are completelly stock, i've just installed Cusco 2way rear diff and Zeal suspension.
kei, mind explaining how you figured this out & more in depth how/where it doesn't fit in the wrx subframe? also, are the 240sx & 280zx r200 diffs the same? (i know they're both nissans but i used to have a 240 & the diff looked nothing like the rear diff in my wrx....)I can confirm that 240sx r200's do not bolt on to our rear subframes
sorry to be a pain, but thanks in advance guys!!!!
There are some problems, starting with 2 broken STi rear axeles(left and right) and broken rear diff (i think it happened because it was rather old, about 130 000km) i've replaced these parts with new ones and didn't have any problems...yet.
I'm thinking of installing s14 rear diff and axeles, cause they are the strongest, but there are many problems, which can be solved anyway
For those of you that are wondering, this is done EXACTLY the same way in a non-DCCD 6MT.

If you want to do a welded center I strongly suggest using the 99+ center section, as the thrust forces on the stepper gears are less likely to push the teeth into the differential body.
A drift Subaru will need increased steering angle as well, as stock steering angle severly limits attack angle. I cut some FC uprights and modified them to fit:
