So far my 1st gear is kinda hard to get into. Never bang gears & launch. I do, heel-toe as much as I can on off/on ramps.
I have an 02 Wrx wagon... Just did a v7 6mt swap w brembos the whole deal... Absolutely love it. Pulled my 5 speed in perfect working order w 178k on it... Second clutch. Car was stage 1 then 2 for like 80k, I went stage whatever at 160k with a blouch 18gxt and every supporting mod trans was fine for it all. Still goes into 1st when rolling when it was pulled. No grinds etc. never slammed gears or beat the hell out of it. Selling it this weekend to make some money back and I'm sure it has another 50k + in it
If treated well.

Im running a GT3076r, FMIC, built Hyrbid swap at 480Hp, and 420tq. Whenever i do race, i smell clutch all over the damn place, but i ride the damn thing like theres no tomorrow. SO, thats working (ONLY FOR NOW) but ive had this set-up since May of last year, and no broken tranmission. In addition, I dont drive like an idiot neither. Most aggressive is Auto-X

Wow really? That's interesting.. My friend has a 2011 Wrx hatch (stock) and Is on his 4th transmission. Yes he thinks he's a racecar driver. Just treat it right and it will treat you right back. I'm scared **** to blow up my transmission because stronger gears are expensive.

But as long as u take car of it, no hard launches, and slamming gears and ull be fine I think.. I use to do that too but after practice launching so many times, I broke an axle (obviously), and Everytime I slam a gear my transmission has a weird weak feeling in it, which is why I don't do it, but after the car cools down it feels fine again.

Question though, I have a kartboy short shifter on my 02 Wrx installed by previous owner. Yes shorter shifts I know, but will it make the transmission feel any different? Just wondering

Ive honestly never liked short shifters mainly because it would only tempt me to slam gears when racing. Im no guru, but a short shifter shouldnt make the tranmission perform any better, but allow faster shifting between gears. I know its lame, but i granny shift the living ***** out of mine... even if i did have a short shifter, id still granny shift. lol. even though id be tempted to slam.

It is tempting but is it gonna be worth it when were paying all that $ for a rebuild lol. I granny shift myself also, even when I raced my best friends Sti, regardless if I won or lost I wasn't gonna break anything Lol, still got him, he missed 3rd haha

310 awhp/ 350 awtq

holds just fine. have done a few light launches at the track and everything has been fine. 350 tq is the "max" recommended torque. But its really up to your driving habits

Blew my 02wrx tranny last year and my 04wrx went last week. Ive opened up both trannies and they have identical damage. 2nd gear is chewed off. what blows my mind is when the 04 went I shifted easy and was just starting to boost. Felt like I broke the drive axle when it went.
Now im just looking for some where I can send the guts of the tranny and have new stuff pressed on the shafts. No luck as of yet finding anyone. Im worried that if I buy a used tranny it wont be in much better shape.

With the money spent on used trannys, i would save up for a PPG box.. Im looking to buy a case, and stick with the 5 speed, but sti 6 speed conversion are amazing too. GOOD LUCK MAN. Keep us posted

My understanding is when people shear teeth off of a gear like that it can be under normal driving. This can happen because earlier while you were driving hard you may have damaged a tooth or two and you just broke off one or two and sent them all down (domino effect).

I am about to go VF39, EWG, ID1000cc blah blah blah on my 06 WRX with 117K miles on her and I can't help but worry about my tranny. I have an ACT HDSS clutch which can't help the matter but I have never launched it or dumped the clutch. I hope my driving style is enough to save my tranny for a couple years at the least. I should be making around 320 WTQ from the looks of it.
