    Motul Gear 300

    06' w/ 34K miles. 350whp/350wtq.

    Externally Gated td06-20g with lots of supporting mods. Broke passing someone in 3rd gear at partial throttle.

    note: even though the tranny broke with the Motul in it, I would say the Motul is far superior to the stock dino oil, shifting was much smoother as was cold weather operation. The car has had 350wtq or more for over a year now.

    1-35kish - Stock Fluid
    35kish-55k - Redline (blew at 55k, Second gear sheared)(Winter time - car just hit op temp and i layed into second gear, only to find i wasnt accelerating and this awesome sound emmited from the tranny)

    Probably due to it being ice cold and i didnt drop the clutch.

    I wish I knew what year the cars were as well. This makes me wary of even buying a wrx, as a lot of those blew with under 100k

    WRX owners do tend to upgrade heavily and Drive very hard

    there are more owners with trannys that work fine than owners who have blown their tranny.

    Alot of them were most likly broken due to 5-7k rpm drops on a launch or abusive driving. If you drive the car and treat it well, your trans will be fine. When you mod your car, you always run the risk of damaging your engine/trans.

    so why do subaru owners like to just drop the heck out of the rpm's and launch so much? so many other awd owners dont abuse their car like that

    Because they want to own from a dig

    Whatever crap they put in stock, if they even put any in mine. It blew at 12,000 KM or 7500 MI. I never once missed a shift.
