Why this thread all together? It is a useless thread and even a more usless question. Peoples answers will give you nothing. Some one can drive a blow up a eng in the first 5k miles. Then another person a 60 y/o grandma can drive a STi and it can last for 150k miles.

My Number 4 spun at 110k, Stage 2 OTS map, Invidia DP.

Probably a coincidence but it spun the one I used 5-30 instead of 5-40
