How is the Glass WRX transmission holding up to this mod?
I love my AWD, but man I wouldn't mind sliding around some corners again. Miss my 240 sometimes.
I'd be more worried about axles.
Axles are cheap, transmissions are not.
But at the same time, your putting all the power to the back. Not sure if that translates into more stress on some inner transmission components or not?
I really want to do this in my car
as was stability with rwd?
Can someone tell me how is it?
So now how the hell do I install it?
hi there i took the back off a gearbox i have to weld the centre diff but its not like the 1 in the pics there are no plates inside its the phase 1 diff i think so where would i weld this 1?
hi...im a new member of this forum and i am very interested in the drift scene but do not have the money for a new car.....i have the 2001 WRX Tiptronic subaru and was wondering if this conversion would work on the car.....would i also need to do any remaps for this or is it a simple 'plug n play'....might be a very retarded question to some but all responses would be greatly appreciated.
Subarus never had tiptronic transmissions. And you might find it a bit difficult to drift with an automatic transmission....
the 2001 BUG EYE versions forward come with tiptronic transmission....automatic with semi auto as well so u choose wen to change gear but no clutch....from wat i have learned and seen, drifting is all about power delivery and im informed the so called 'clutch dump' technique is actually a bad thing and will cause more crashing then drifting opposed to using brakes, h.brake and weight distribution...
why i ask is i see alot of nissan R35 tiptronics used for drift..
Many people (erroneously) use the term 'tiptronic' to refer generically to any type of torque converter automatic transmission that incorporates a manual upshift/downshift feature.
Incidentally, manumatics were not fitted to US turbo Imprezas, and the majority of members here have US turbo Imprezas. The last mention I saw of a tiptronic (heh...) Impreza was an African car.
