I have a 02 Wrx and it doesn't like going in 1st, reverse when daily driving, and sometimes 2nd when WOT. I have a kart boy short shifter also. I use to just think it was my transmission starting to go but after reading the post I know I'm not alone lol merry christmas Subaru brothers!

Does anyone have a good trick to get a good smooth shift when going wot in 1st to 2nd in a sti. You have to shift so fast and it's under so much tq that getting a smooth shift is tricky. It always seems to jerk a bit.

You kinda gotta play around with how fast you let the clutch out, especially at wot.

This! I've owned 3 Nissan 240sx's (all 5MT), a Honda Acura (5MT) and the WRX 5MT is by far the best. Yes the Honda and Nissan was easier to drive but I love the gated, notch-y feel. My brother that has an 88' 300zx-T loved the throws on my wagon.
Although the 2nd gear whine does scare me somewhat, so I try to avoid de-accelerating in that gear.
