When was the last time you changed your transmission, center diff and differential fluid?

5,000 for the trans fluid, 15,000 for both diffs.

The trans was rebuilt 15,000 miles ago because the insides of the torque converter exploded and the 3rd gear clutch packs burnt up. At that time I had the mechanic changed the fluids in the diffs too.

Kris_JDM i think that looks great man! Love the matte white. With a front lip, that'd really tie it together.

I've been working on trying to get _adam's stance the last few days. Feel like I'm close! I'll take pictures at the BNW meet on Sunday.

Haha I know it has a center diff. I just didn't know it would have binding issues like the 5 speed since it has the electronic clutch packs.

So im thinking about adding on to the wrc wing what do you guys think about a lip on the rear of the blade.

I apologize for the crude drawing had to do it on my cell phone but it gives you an idea:

Maybe? lol... All I know is only two things cause front end click on turns and front end clunks.

Diff - clicks on turns and clunks on bumps
CV - clicks on turns
Struts/tophats - clunks on bumps

I spose it could be a combo of your axle shafts and bad top hats..

But the other symptoms sound like diff.

You get turn bounces with a diff too.. cause of the binding.

With the level of style you currently have, I'm sure that it would look awesome when you were finished with it. I am quite curious to see what you come up with.

What do you guys think? Like the JDM wagon "I M P R E Z A" emblems, but in the new age font. Printed on matte metallic silver.

So, I have to admit friends that I recently was tempted by the fruit of another... seriously considered selling the Bugeye out of sheer frustration that so much is left to do.

But then I said... F it, all in. Deploying soon and instead of using funds to buy some expensive car, it's going into the Bug. Finally going to get it to where I want it to be.

With the way the wing is painted it would be a bit more subtle, which is good. If I were to do something similar on yours I would keep it smaller than what the sketch is alluding to, but you never really know until you try it, and you should try it.

I had this emblem on my trunk for a few years before deleting all the emblems. I believe I still have a brand new one somewhere LOL

Looks exactly if not very similar to the emblem font.

You mean it looks like the GD impreza font (like below) or like mine?

ForumRunner_20130726_113909.jpg

I think what you have is what I was talking about. JDM wagon letters.

No. It looks like your lettering. I had the new age badge. That badge looks totally different than mine
