Electric motors make all the torque at near 0rpm. Thus taking the tight line into a corner and losing momentum isn't as big a penalty. You end up with better acceleration out of the corner than the person chasing you, and you get to the next corner before they are in a position to pass.

You can't pass through the pair of chicanes as anyone with half a mind is straight-lining them as much as possible. If you stick your nose in there to force a move you spin out both cars. The first little up-hill banked turn after the start/finish line is wide enough to allow a pass, but the person taking the wide line is likely to turn down on anyone attempting to tuck under them and take the inside line into the corner. Expect an unobservant driver to nail you when you make that pass. At the far end of the course is a hairpin. You can only pass there if you are skinny and can actually out accelerate the other car up the hill. Otherwise you must choose to be the ******* and dive bomb into the corner and risk t-boning the other driver to force your way through.


TL;DR
It's a Pastor Maldonado type of course.
Oooh ok, i see what you are saying, i have been trying to loose a bit of weight these past few months. How steep is the uphill part, and coming down back to ground level, is it straight?

Both hills climb one story, so probably 10 feet considering there is sufficient height to walk under the straight away in another part of the building. In both cases the climb is pretty quick. Probably a 30-50% grade.

They have pics on the site here. You can browse through and see the up and down slopes for the straight (to and from the hairpin).

That is pretty steep, down hill into a chicane, I'm guess you can take that flat out? It looks really fun, now i am going to have to drive all the way up there to try it out.

If no one is on your ass and likely to undercut you into a corner the only place you need to brake is into the hairpin, and that's just a stab and turn to get a little rotation out of the rear end. You could be flat out everywhere else. At least I could at 225lbs. Maybe a smaller person would have more speed and need a little more brake.

i kind of feel dumb trying to replace my airfilter & cabin filter.

Removing the clips made the airboax unseat & I have no Idea how is it sitting with 2 clips on it.

The dampner on the glove box is not dampenig anymore.

Is there a good writeup on doing these?

I mean its an intake pretty straight forward

Although I would get it tuned by an actual engine calibrator instead of the canned maps from cobb

Thanks guys! I planned on using the Cobb OTS map with just the intake and then taking it for the protune once I get the J Pipe and exhaust on there in early February.

I would do a little more reading before throwing an intake on. The intake is wholly unnecessary for the WRX unless you're doing a serious 400whp+ build from the research I've done. Even an OTS+ map isn't that great, and the stock intake will give you lower temps and similar performance with better reliability.

It will sound friggin sick brah, but again, kind of just an expensive noise maker unless you really build her.

If you don't plan to go past a jpipe, just run Stage 2 OTS without the intake option. (still recommend a customized e-tune after logs or a pro tune on a dyno).

Feel free to jump in and correct me, but this has been the general consensus for reliability.

I have to check this place out! It's pretty close to me, and it honestly never crossed my mind. For some reason I thought this was like a youth group hang out spot or something, not legit karts inside!

Can I get any recommendations on where to get some work done to my car? A bolt broke off on the engine block and so I need someone to extract it, retap it, and then put a few parts back on. If they can replace the EBCS while they're at it, it'll help me out a lot.

If anyone has suggestions on where to go, that would be appreciated. I will have to get the car on a flatbed in the process, because it isn't operational as a result of the issue. If they're in and around Detroit, that'll help me out as a result.

Hey guys. Just yesterday I started noticing some considerate horizontal slop in gates 3+4. Up until last night, they were rock solid with no play while in gear. What gives? Can't seem to find an abundance of similar situations from a short Google session, save for one person who asked the same and didn't really get an answer.

www.reddit.com/r/WRX/comments/6fye4x/is_there_any_reason_why_there_is_more_slop_in_3rd/#ampf=undefined

I bought the car brand new at 4 miles and am just now at 21k. Had the Perrin shift stop installed at 5k, and brass bushings installed at 15k if that helps. Anyone have any insight or experience to lend me?

Howdy all! Would anyone be interested in a meetup sometime? Maybe once the weather gets a bit warmer? I have a couple buddies with WRX's but it would be fun to meet some other folks and talk shop. Just gauging interest!
