Mikey,

Yeah, that could have been the car. I share it with my girlfriend, and she was out driving back from Evansdale/Law Campus area last night around nineish. Silver wagon, no mods (haven't put on the sway bar yet, though that wouldn't change the looks or anything). She drives fine, though she needs to work on rev-matching for downshifting. She wants the end of the break in period more than I do! Only another 175 miles...

yep that was her...........no mods, stock silver wagon, i think the license started w/ ECS? or something CS............. anyway awesome to have a gf who likes manual tranny, also, what mileage are you going too? i went to 500 calmly, drove to 1000 letting it go to 6k rpm, but i got anxious at 1000 and it was, a 6k rpm launch...........anyways that was 28k ago, the miles came on fast for me in 1 year..........

Mikey,

I'm taking it calmly (under 4K) to 900, then up to 5k until 1000miles, then an oil change, then up to 6k until 1100 miles, then I get to redline it for the first time. I'll change the oil again at 3000 miles, when I put synthetic in for the first time. I'll probably switch to synthetic in the tranny and diff at that time too. I may do the SPT wagon suspension sometime soon, too - John Howard Subaru gave me a coupon for 15% off parts and installation, so I figured if I used that on the suspension, I might save some bucks versus ordering it online and trying to convince them to put it in. I have to go and talk to them, probably at the 1000 mile oil change, likely in a few weeks. We'll see.

Have a good homecoming weekend

dave,

synthetic fluid in our tranny i believe is not recomended......ive been running stock fluid and stock shifter and i think the shifting is great......do you not like your shifting or anything, any reasons for going synthetic in there and the rear diff? i went synthetic on the motor at 2500 as welll though....

mikey,

Yeah, I've read the posts on synthetic tranny fluid, and know the arguments. There is no reason at all not to put it in the rear diff - I've read of no problems, and it will help the unit wear. I'm planning on keeping the car until it dies, so I'm in it for long life. As for the tranny, there are as many pro as con. Some say it really helps the shifting, some say it hurts it. I've always run it in other manual tranny cars ('92 Integra GS-R, '93 RX-7), and it has always worked for me. I thought i'd give it a shot here. Worse case scenario, I put it in, drive a hundred miles or so, and take it out. That's not enough to hurt anything. The gearbox feels generally fine, but when cold it can be stiff (wouldn't go into first until a dead stop last night, first time it's done that). Synthetic should be better for that, since it stays relatively "liquid" even at cold temps - better for cold weather (which is on the way), and better for the overall tranny life - at least in theory. I'll give it a shot, and see.

morgantown's a hell of alot better than martinsburg. at least in mo-town you can travel up to Deep Creek Lake in garrett county MD. lots to do, i practically grew up there. plus if you ski or snowboard, the Wisp is there as well.

wisp is the closest one to mo-town, about 45minutes i think, maybe not even that. take 68 into MD get off the keyser's ridge exit, there is a closer back way, you take an exit in Friendsville, MD. it's an ok resort, the half pipe is supposed to be good this year. the park is ok, but not taken care of very well.

An I-Club meet at Wisp would surely kick ass.. but I'd be stuck on all the beginner slopes.

Dave,

would u be up to skiiing?

also everyone else local........the swv scca auto x's in quincy, WV, at Riverside HS. And by looking at their results, it looks like they dont get to see really what scoobies can do...........So, their last race of the season is nov 17........how about showin em what their made of. I am going for sure, w/out a doubt. Its 99 miles south of mo-town on 79. So by my estimate an hour 15 to get there. If anyone else from the area wants to go, ill lead a pack down. Till then..........

Default skiing? only if i can strap them on the WRX...

Hey

I haven't strapped skis on in five years or more, and never felt much of a need for a snowboard (yeah, I'm that old), but I'll give the locals a try. East coast skiing is all about ice, if I remember correctly, but I can dig my edges in more and flail about.

As for the Nov autocross, I'll see what I can do. Gotta get the WRX out of break in, and I'd be on the stupid stock bridgestone RE92s, but I could give it a try. I could instead bring my '93 RX7...I'll check the calendar and see what it says.
