You won't loose any HP with what suggestions have been made. I think what a lot of us are saying is to build a more gradual torque ramp that holds the torque out longer without the spike and fall. Edit: it's still making a lot of torque at 7k! It will probably make your car faster in the long run!

The other thing is the strategy for launching to make it squat back more and leave like a RWD, using the natural rearward weight shift, loading the rear tires more and lessening the load on the front of the drive line. This should help your times and hopefully even the durability of the car. FYI, Junior wants me to try just rear drag radials on my car and matching up the diameter with my 26.7" tall street tires in the front. There's a MT 265/40-18 that will match up really close for me but I'm not quite there yet as I have other stuff I'm doing to the car, $$'s etc... I do want to try this and see how it goes for me. I'm not comparing my build to yours as you are making way more power than me but the approach is basically the same.

You don't really like to break **** do you and spend more money unnecessarily? I'm sure we're all just trying to help.....that's all!

NO disrespect!!
I'm just sick of bull**** honestly...

I like someone who has a plan of attack and not telling me "torque falls off too soon"! lol

I talked to AndrewTech today and they said that it looks like the tranny has been apart before(we never cracked it open) and the breaking was not caused by us driving it to hard which is crazy since I bought the car brand new with 7 miles on it?

Again, I'm sorry for getting so irritated but I'm sick of people whose cars are not as high in power or have time slips saying that we need to change our strategy, my apologies....

Nate, Jason and myself are working with AndrewTech to get the transmission totally rebuild with all new gears, bearings, diff, etc for import face-off to crack off a 9 sec pass and properly secure the GR chassis record and show that Subarus can compete with the best of them! :-)

And again, I'm sorry for being a lil hot headed in my post bcz the car has been killing my checking account, I want to reset the record with a 9 sec pass in memory of my grandfather and we have been so busy at the shop that I let it all get to my head :-(

Got some awesome new today!

Just talk to AndrewTech and transmission is getting finished today!

Andrew said that the most totaled, yet repairable transmission he has fixed!

Split the differential housing in half like a sandwich bun and I can't wait to see it tomorrow when I make trip to go pick it up! lol

My Quarter Master twin-disc w/ hydraulic release bearing has arrived along with the AMS Oil "severe gear" 75w 90!



We will be installing everything on Sunday and getting it ready for test and tune @ Pittsburgh Raceway Park this upcoming week to earn some even better time slips!

Murica FTW!

Complete OEM rebuild with a a Cusco differential...

Andrew stated that a big reason the failure happened was improper assembly from the factory but over 600wtq definitely did not help the situation lol

Transmission has been picked up and heading back to TPG Tuning to install it in the quest of 9s!

If you have any doubts that we broke everything in the trans, check out the list of parts that needed to be replaced! lol




We got the special "**** insert rod" upgrade as well!

Transmission is installed!

Nate and i installed the trans with new Torque Solution engine/trans mounts and the Quarter Master Twin disc in about 2 hours or so!

The Quarter Master clutch feels amazing with the hydraulic release bearing!

You are required to shim it so the bearing and pressure plate fingers are between .100-.125" away from each other for optimal engagement and disengagement which I find amazing!

Just a thought, heat protect your power steering line or convert it to ss braided. I'm doing mine soon.

How short was your dump tube that it caused this to happen? Mine goes past the axel and even with where the DP makes the bend to go horizontal.

Sorry for thread jack Baseball. Figure this could be good info for you too.

Not super close...I thought it was pretty safe.

Go to a braided line and put a fire safe sleeve on it, cheap and safe insurance. Seems like most of these fires are the power steering fluid catching, in one way or another.

No big deal guys!

Any info that can help safety of fellow drivers is fully encouraged to be posted if it applies to a subject that is being discussed! :-)

That is awesome. Every rotated kit should come with that standard.

It took someone else's car to burn down to make me take a look at my setup and notice how dangerously close the steering lines are to the up pipe now.

Yea you can in one picture that the soft lines are wrapped where they are closest to the up-pipe, AMS FTW!

Wow would be crazy to see someone's car burn to the ground bcz of a power steering line! lol

There are a few on here and there is one that happened local in Florida that I know of. Steering fluid is very combustible.

Yeah I've got a first alert rechargeable but I hope i don't have to use it. My ps line is stock with the DEI heat shield wrap. My dump goes all the way back to the rear diff so no dump near the ps line. I've also got my dump and down pipe wrapped with DEI tape to the firewall.

My ps line is stainless steel but actually pushes against my ts up pipe. I wasn't sure if the ss would be ok I wrapped it with that foil type sleeve stuff and then on top of that some of the thick heat sleeve stuff

I'm thinking we should probably start a new thread for this lol.

But I would try to get the line to not touch your exhaust. It is good to have all the protection you do have but some separation would be the best probably. Just keep an eye on it to see signs of the exhaust melting into the sleeves etc.
