A bit curious how many are interested in a AKIC Fantasy football league this year. It is a free service through Yahoo. I know there are a few sports fans here. Post up or PM. we'll run it by the mods and see if it is a go based on response.

Anderson is not cocky. Training MMA has certainly taught me many things, one of which fighting is stricktly mental. You can have amazing jujitsu, huge reach advantages, and many other gifts, but if you can't think on-the-fly or you lock up when your opponent is coming at you; you're about to have a bad day. Anderson's coaches train him to do such things, drop guard, make those gestures, etc. Those of us gifted with quick speeds and long arm advantages, if you can con your opponent into coming into your range, a quick tap to the chin will end the fight. Silva proved this with Forrest Griffin and many others; his style is extremely risky and unorthodox, but, it works for him. I liked both fighters going in, but, I did also foresee Weidman taking over the belt. Good on him for not falling under his pressure and stepping up. He was confident going in, and was rewarded for so.

Sad to see him go out like that though, haha. I know there's alot of talk about the fight being fixed or he threw the fight etc. He obviously doesn't care for a rematch, hell he has 10 fights left on his contract but he's 38 already. Not sure if any of you saw his pre-fight interview where he was joking about the outcome of the fight being him losing and how he doesn't want to fight anymore.

My first thought is.... I thought Subaru's were like Lego's, you could pretty much bolt anything to anything?

my second thought is, have you tried searching? According to this thread:
http://www.clubwrx.net/forums/transm...3-04-05-a.html and a few others I found, it looks as though an '05 transmission *should* work, you just might need to swap the axles. None thus far in searching mention cut-off dates.

Hopefully someone around here can actually confirm this and has done it, because otherwise sharing this information is useless.

You can use a 2005 wrx trans in a 2002 wrx as long as you swap the axles to the 2005 style,

So tell your friend to look and see what axles it's going to take and go from there , you can get 2005 style axles from fats , it's what I'm running in mine after the swap was done

So the tranny will bolt up and all the connectors are the same? It just might need new axles?

Take the chip off your shoulder man, nothing wrong with sharing information,

Sharing/spreading FALSE information and passing it off as fact, when you have no actual personal experience will get you called out…simple as that. Too bad you're not seeing it that way.

Might give Tribal a ring or PM, as he has actually done it. From what I gathered in my quick search the other night, it looks like it is simply the axles, however some have mentioned a change in the linkages, or mounting brackets.

When was this and how much of a hassle did they give you? I ask as I know some people getting out of military and have orders for their home state. At present they don't have passports.

That's kind of funny, as I bought my current S4 from Washington.

This is one of the main reasons I have bought my last 3 main cars from out of state. (S4, Legacy & S4) 2 were from Washington, 1 from Iowa. including the shipping costs they were still a fair bit cheaper than anything I could find locally. Add to that many Washington dealers have done enough business with Alaskan's they already have a preferred shipper and transporters to take the vehicles to the docks.

Bait set and SNAG!

Any information you share on the Internet is subject to the same scrutiny as information that anyone else shares. This is a FORUM. If I say that I read 100 guys think that something sucks and I've talked to 5 guys that say that something sucks, yet you and one other guy say that it doesn't and say that "other reviews" don't, then WHOOPTY FREAKIN DOO. It's up to the personal purchasing the product to research thoroughly themselves before making their final call.

Get over yourself. Just because you say something is great doesn't mean it is. It just means that it's great for YOU. Yaye! Celebration! He has a part that he enjoys! YAYE!

Stop being so predictable. Challenge your mind every once in a while instead of your reflexes. It's okay to slow down sometimes and think before you speak. Go ahead and give it a try. I'm not going to rush you, ever. I'm patient like that.

I could keep this up forever because you still tell yourself that I have something invested in this topic, which I don't, or pretty much any topic. It's your pride that's at stake. You can hold on to it or just let it go. Your choice. I'll be waiting to not read your next long-winded post.

And again you still fail since you missed the entire point of my original post. You tend to confuse yourself that way, though. Keep trying! This is fun!

Although, you know we're both eventually going to have the mods involved AGAIN. You might as well move on I guess. Just know that according to you, anything you share on here is just as void as anything else shared by someone else that's also had first-hand experience once someone else repeats that information second-hand. No point in divulging or even reading up on anything since everything can be questioned anyways by champions and trophy-winners.

I didn't read the whole thing. I saw some links to something, not really sure what. Something unimportant, though, I'm sure.

Oh God I heart pudding!

Love you, Mike. Don't ever grow hair.

Children.... Puuhleeeaze..
We ALLL know, that cut springs with those Sears shocks are the bestest. How else can those Honda's continually beat WRX's?

In all seriousness though, the argument regarding good vs horrible suspension is at best subjective. This is to say, there is no absolute. What may be "perfect" or even good for some, could be horrible or poor for others. Sometimes it's the products, sometimes the vendors, sometimes the installers. Many research and gain their opinion based on others that HAVE had real experience.

Also, something to consider .... # of wins does not necessarily equate "quality". Case in point, many still tend to shy away from German cars due to reliability horror stories from decades past, yet who is dominating the Lemans series? Oh that's right, a German car manufacturer. And that's the Troof!!

Wrong about what?

God and I have plans on Sundays, as always. As far as I figured you and I were just playing around! No clue how these things always get blown out of proportion. I blame society.

And cute pic! Maybe you should use more pictures in your responses. It's the only way I can learn good.
