looking up to ken block as some sort of idol is pathetic. Its just as bad as hoping he will win the World Rally Championship. It will never happen. Never! He sucks!

Kinda like wearing ken block / subaru shirts, then ultimately switching to ken block ford shirts. It doesn't make him WIN.

Horrible rally car driver, but good stunt driver, if your into hardcore practicing around a loop. It will get old soon.

I'd actually have to disagree with you, I think looking up to Ken Block isn't a bad thing at all. Yes, you're right he's not the best at rally but I don't see you out in any WRC races so you're not really one to talk. He is however a pretty good stunt driver and loves what he does and oh yeah not to mention he owns DC and makes a ass ton of money for making and doing things he loves to do. So yeah I'd say he's a pretty good role model

Welcome to the forum. IDK what exact type of tranny he has but I'm sure it's heavy duty and not your run of the mill Fiesta one. GL with your Getting an Impreza!

It'll be a standard WRC spec hydraulically actuated sequential gearbox that shares very little with its road going counterpart. Worth brand new...expect to pay about 60-70k $US as a very LOW estimate.

Describing the clutch as "Heavy duty" is quite an understatement.

i have no clue but this is just a thought... maybe the clutch is used to disengage the gear when he pulls the hand brake. this prevents damage to the transmission and drive train?

hehe, or the third pedal is just for looks.

Do they teach grammar in high school in Michigan? J/K

Now that the obligatory snooty hazing comment is out of the way... Welcome!

Yeah, most anything in a WRC car is specialized, it seems. Certainly the trannies are, these days.

An older Impreza would probably be a terrific rallyX toy. Cheap, reliable, easy to drive... Nice.

Ooh boi.

Straight cut gears have straight teeth and can generally handle more torque than conventional helical gear teeth. They also howl very loud like a jet engine.

You don't want these. If anything maybe a 6 sp swap

You should learn how to drive before you even worry about race-specific upgrades. Seriously. A dogbox and/or straight cut gears are WAY out of a 15 year olds budget.

I'm not too sure on it, but I believe it's controlled by the computer system when the handbrake is yanked. The clutch pedal is mainly used for normal starting/stopping/driving between stages.

Actually no, I am going to say 99% positive that all drive to the rear is killed when the handbrake is applied, therefore clutch disengagement not required.

It's a Kaps transmission, Dog Box. Looks like his fun car has the 6 speed, most of the rally cars have the 5 speed. Those transmissions run up in the $30k range, but of course that's not installed or shipped to your door or your installer. There are tons of options. Check out their site, I'm not sure what it is, their a foreign based company. I think Crawford Performance has a link to Kaps on their site.

You won't be getting anything with a paddle shifter.

Straight cut:


Stock style helical cut:

^ helical also reduces drivetrain noises. This is why your car doesn't wine like a race car going down the road. However, reverse is straight cut, so that's one of the reasons you hear wining in reverse.

First, welcome to the forum.

Now that is out of the way, please, for the love of Christ use better grammar. When you are typing there are red lines that will appear under misspelled words, right click on them and the vBulletin will fix them for you. This forum is full of grammar and spelling Nazis and they will make your stay here unpleasant.

As for the 3 posts thing, we require that so as to weed out users that join just to post up spam etc.......

As a first car you really cannot go wrong with a first generation Impreza. If possible try to find a 2.2 or a 2.5 litre as the 1.8 is a bit under powered. In regards to Sno*Drift, have you ever attended? There is no such thing as a "test and tune" for Sno*Drift (there is a test stage for the competitors though) There are rally crosses in the Detroit area though, log onto myautoevents.com and search the Detroit region SCCA.

While you're here, please fill out the rest of your information and check out the MWSOC, that's where all the locals hang out.
