Default Special Thanks To Cobb Tuning

I want to give credit where credit is due. I want to give a special "Thank You" to Trey and the rest of his crew at Cobb Tunning for getting me back in my STI. I don't know if you remember a post I posted a while ago asking about lambo doors, but I was in a motorcycle accident last November, which left me paralyzed from the chest down. I knew I wouldn't ride a motorcycle again, but the STI was still up in the air. Tom West, a fellow STI driver, sent out e-mails on my behalf to vendors asking for assistance in finding a way to allow me to drive again. Cobb answered the call.

I shipped my car out to Utah where Cobb installed "Suregrip" hand controls, 3" downpipe, heat shield, Scroth Quick Fit Harnesses (DOT 4 point harness), AccessPort (which was dyno tuned by Cobb), and last but not least, a 5zigen twin mode clutch system, which allowed me to keep the STI a standard 6 speed. Now it's time for some pics!









Here, you'll find extra pics and a sound clilp

Enjoy and let me know if you have any questions.

thats awesome!

However I would have thought they might do a paddle for the clutch, that way you could burn it some instead of just 'on/off'.

Well, this is how it basically works:

The button on the shift knob is basically my clutch pedal. So when I push the button, it disengages the clutch allowing me to shift. When I release the button, it reengages the clutch.

As for the lever, I pull the lever toward me to add gas and I push the lever back and "out" to apply the brake. When the brake is applied, this also disengages the clutch. That comes in handy when I'm coming to a stop and don't have to worry about shifting.

First gear and reverse are a little tricky. When I release the button, I have to add the right amount of gas or the car will stall. I'm getting the hang of it and my take off's are much smoother.

how are those harnesses? Do they just plug into the back seat belts and run through the hole in the seat? That sounds like a nice way to add harnesses in an STi without a harness bar.
