Traction/stability control (VDC) wasn't introduced until 2008 on the Impreza.

Buy a cusco tarmac center differential and/or learn to drive. You don't have traction control.

….after following several of your posts, I seriously suggest you take a few steps back and take the time out to fully understand the various components/systems, how they function and the ramifications of modifying them before continuing on this path you’ve started. It’s glaringly obvious (to me at least) that you really don’t even have a grasp on some of the fundamentals. I don’t mean any disrespect nor am I trying to belittle you. ….I just don’t want to see you (or someone else) end up as another statistic.

What he said. Disabling the ABS for street driving is teh dum. I don't care how good you are at driving, the ABS module is better at not skidding in an emergency than you are.

Yup, no Traction Control to be found on WRX's back then.
The only traction ctrl you got is AWD

As far as ABS? on the street? plug it back in.

Lastly, you want to give the rear more power than the front? Buy an early STi 6spd. Or just buy a RWD car like some people mentioned above if you're after tail-happiness or Burnout-capability.
AWD is good at putting power to the road, not the opposite.

Can you read your owners manual cover to cover? It probably tells you how to properly change oil and even what rating to use. As well as various systems equipped.

Ill venture to say that if you just introduced yourself to oil changeing you should in no way disable any of the safety mechanisms.
Hell, most of your list of posts can be found in the handy dandy owners manual.


After your done with that introductory material you should most defiantly read Unabombers manifesto sticky (http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=533787) from top to bottom even if just a scan through.

What does abs have anything to do with natural driving experiences?

Real wheel drive is a garage term used for rear wheel drives since purists always prefer a rear wheel drive sports car.

I'll just refer to my STi as a Sports/Utility kinda car...

Oh, wait. Subaru keeps winning awards in that category too..

It's a matter of preference and driving feel. 4WD/AWD cars don't drive the same as FR cars, you can't change that. In the same way, FF cars are usually not accepted as "sports cars".

Yup, that's right, my Z sits in the garage most of the time. My MX-5 goes out in the winter, but of course the WRX with winter tires is the car of choice to play in the snow.

I know 2002 AutoTranny WRXs had a somewhat different AWD control.
Called VTD (not VDC).
Manual 5spds got the 50/50 front back split.

1/3rd of the page down...

On a normal day, your ABS should not be engaging at all. And you can in fact practice threshold braking and still have ABS. If the ABS kicks in, you lost Cheaper than flatspotting tires.

Or install a 6-speed with DCCD.

Of course the car is designed to be AWD and making it RWD or more RWD is not necessarily better since there is very little weight on the rear tires.

But hey, knock yourself out.

Nevermind, I just realized who you were. I will stop giving good advice. You don't care.
