Do you FFS? If not your comment is irrelevant. Not to be mean but all OP is trying to do is tell you FFS eats the stock clutch.

Do you FFS? If not your comment is irrelevant. How is FFS on a drag strip driving like a dumbass? I'd like to see you pull these numbers:

If you don't know what FFS or a boost controller is you need to see your way out of this thread and stop instigating petty internet fights.

Speaking as a 2011 WRX owner that moved from Michigan to Charlotte I can attest that we all aren't total morons like this guy.

yeah and the moral is ffs eats clutches? then dont use it. launch control eats clutches? dont use it. buy a tranny and clutch that can sustain that abuse regularly. then do all the launches you want. a daily driver doesnt need ffs and launch control. jmo.

hey, I'd really like to congratulate the OP - it sounds like he actually does know how to drive...

Out of all the things that could break, like gears, driveshafts... the clutch goes. That's pretty fortunate, and a sign that he's not just clutch-dumping it, but pulling off a pretty decent start.

Now, if you want your clutch to last, don't do hard starts (but hard pulls are okay once off the line). If you can't not do fast starts, keep slipping the clutch like you do - it's a lot less expensive that your other options, in the long run.

Srsly?^^

I don't get why everyone is so worked up. He admits to launching and flat foot shifting. That's HARD on a clutch!

The fail is strong with these ones.

Good for you for having fun with your money. I hate seeing all these rich people in there 50's and 60's that just keep on saving and saving to give it to there kids. Sure It's nice for the kids to get an inheritence, but give them a ton of money and they are just spoiled whiners...

But the only thing I disagree with is you thinking the dealer will bend over for you since you want to pay mostly cash for an STi. They make more money you finance it, BUT I'm pretty sure someone with your bank account knows that... lol.

Have fun

Agree completely with this statement but, you have to treat the people that you depend on roght. When you go out to eat you tip the waiter dont you? The same should gofor the tech that you depend on for you car investment. Whats 20 dollars to you when a guy does your oil change? In life you need to take care of people period! I have never met anyone that didn't like a bonus saying i appreciate your service or what you do for me. Take care of those that take care of you an you will reap the benefits, business 101

are we supposed to be impressed by your weak liquor stash?
Fleet Admiral couldn't have said it better " Run FFS with 18 pounds and see what happens". I have drove nearly every car worth driving except a arial adam. This muther fing stock cluth with 12 pulls of FFS running 18 psi fails, end of story! Has nothing to do with launch!

Wow... In all honestly if I had the means ($$$$$$) to take my car to its absolute mechanical/physical limits.. damn sure I would love to try.. which car enthusiast in their right mind would not? Most of us just don't have the means.

If you have the means to drop in a race engine, new transmission, etc.. why he heck would you care if you really did kill the stock one? In fact.. wouldn't you like to go out with a bang?

Also I don't think he expects that his dealer will give him a free clutch.

I dont expect anything but did learn from josh kalis with his 600hp M5 how to treat guys that work on your cars. 3 drive shafts (2k) and has yet to pay for one. take care of people gents and feel free to forward this to every dealer in NC, makes no difference. Its a business like anyone else, why do you guys think your buying a car for %5under invoice? Were happy at the price and the dealer is just as happy that we wait for 8 weeks to get a car they dont have to hold on the lot. Anyone with half a brain can figure out how business and networking works.

I would like to collect $5 from everyone who would pay me that much to close this thread, but I really don't need the money.

What's this button do?
