    nope.. needed to clearance the shifter tower vs. floorboard by about 1/4" (I've converted the blue truck from auto to 5speed) and the new trans must've lined up just a tad more to the right than the original one.. so it was barely touching the floorboard edge under load.. no mas!

    I'll be up at the 10/9 and 11/27 games. 2005 STi with RCE T0 coilovers.

    If you come out to Pocono raceway 9/4-5, I'll show you what it does on track. No power mods, just tranny bushings, brakes, suspension, and some parts I had to replace due to failure.

    if you want to learn, get a mkiv golf. those are probably the easiest cars to drive manual everrr
    the clutch is so soft and mushy and i'm almost 99.9999999999% positive that it's impossible to stall out on

    i would know... i have one haha

    I'm not sure about that I owned two Mk4 VR6's and my wife managed to stall them.

    Anyway I'll be in State College with 2002 WRX wagon in a week or so. If you're still looking to ride around in one I wouldn't have a problem taking you.

    BINGO.

    WRX drivetrain, stock, is best described as stretching a 'huge rubber band' when you want to make those smooth shifts. Everyone who hasn't done the Klunk Killer/Diff lockout kit knows what I'm talking about.

    If I'm out towards there sometime I could probably give a ride, just a worked-ish WRX though. As far as learning stick... Jeep wrangler is easy as hell to learn on, if you've got a buddy with one of those.

    Give me a shout when you're in town; I'm out by Robinson. We'll pull out some random back roads so you can see how they handle. (Doesn't even have to be a whole case.)
