I have not seen anything about this but I noticed with the WRX if you downshift it really dont slow you down much, it seems to slow down a little and than kinda freewheel. With both my Integra, MR2 and any other 5-speed I have driven the gears will slow it down considerably. Is there something with the Gearbox of the WRX that will not let it do that?

the only reason why i downshift while slowing down and letting the revs get up is so im in the powerband for when i get back on the gas.
I just blip the ol, gas pedal a tad to match the gear down..

I Downshift all the time to just coast down hills and such. I always rev match to downshift. I saves gas to engine brake because it shuts the injectors off.

I only blip/downshift to slow down before a turn when I'm crusin the twisties, otherwise, I let the brakes do their job.
