Default RallySport Direct's 2015 WRX STI Build






RallySportDirect is happy to introduce our 2015 STi project car. We are very excited for this all new Subaru platform and are looking forward to sharing our build experience with the Subaru community. We will document the entire build from start to finish, reviewing parts as we go and best of all is provide full reviews along with technical feedback on all parts that we test. After only driving this car for a little over 100 miles it’s obvious that Subaru has done an outstanding job with the car, however as we all know there is always room for improvement to make the car perform to individual driver’s needs. From basic bolt on items to more customer one off projects, we look forward to sharing our experience with you!

From straight on the STI looks like an old forester ... just not a fan of the new design. It seems to have lost it's sports car, head turning, look.

However, I'm very interested to see what you guys do and if you can change my impression!

You say that like it is a bad thing. Blending in and not being noticed is a wonderful thing. Especially when the cops drive by you and pull over the BMW in the left lane going slower than you are.

Everybody is deterring from this car cuz the look...have any of "you guys" even read the technical specs of this shiiiiiiii?!

Twinscroll..direct injection...a pretty f****n solid motor...just to name the minimum of the basics to those that neglect the plus' for the look.
Don't worry it'll grow on you. They just do that.

On the sti it'll be cake to make power, great efficient power. Crazy ass spool dude I can't wait to drive a slightly modded one, just catless and a protune just to see how peppy it is. Then I'll wanna feel on ethanol. And I bet I'll be pretty f****n satisfied. All that great feeling and I'm not even thinkin bout the look anymore.

Lower it, some wheels maybe (I like the lowered on stock wheel kinda look..don't know why..maybe cuz I can't afford new wheels...) mudflaps, maybe some cool lil flashy fogs bro and a short shifter and it'll feel like home, right?

Sorry fer the rant. I need beer.

Subbing to see what you all can do. Not a fan, but the older STi was the same and now I love it

Pretty sure it is still port injected. The wrx has direct injection. I get your point though. People need to stop complaining until after they have driven it because it sounds like it is what the STi should have been a long time ago.

Driving around in the 2015 WRX, the only looks I get are from Subaru guys. The STi might be different with the wing.

No conformation yet, but we will let you know once we confirm. It appears the only issue might be with the mount to the chassis unless there is something else I am not seeing.

Thanks guys!!!

So an update on the car, as I have put on about 330miles on it the last few days.

First the things that I like.
Suspension and Chassis out of the box is amazing! Having had an EVO X before, I am not afraid to say that apples to apples the new STi will outrun it. The new steering rack will also make this car great for autoX! The stock interior is fantastic compared to the outgoing GR, I dont like it as much as the GD personally but its leaps and bounds ahead of the GR. Stock tires are amazing, but are a little loud. The new sound system, is very good for Subaru standards (if that means anything). Last is the look of the car, every time I part the car I cant help but turn around and look at it. Some thing the car is very plain, but that is not a bad thing as I have yet to have a single cop look at the car

Things that I hate.
Stock seats are terrible, I mean they are THAT BAD! Yes they look nice, but do not hold you in at all ( I am 6'4" and 230lbs). The noise tube is driving me NUTS, it makes the car sound cheap and I on purpose have the stereo loud enough so that I cant hear it. The car has a big blind spot on both sides around the rear 1/4 panels, I find myself checking them 2-3 times before I change lanes. Reverse camera is a big "small", yes its nice but I wish it was a higher quality lens that had a wider angle.

That should cover basics for now , we will have more info as we get more miles on the car

Must be because of your height. I do not experience this blind stop on my '15 STI. I do wish the seats held a bit better but I will say they are still way better than the previous year model!!
