I think we are all better off waiting for the next gen STI. I am sure it will be cheaper and probably better than the S209.

It's been forever since I've been here. Still the same names around. Hope everyone is doing well!

It's also been forever since I've been in a Subaru. Though I still have rotted out WRB 2.5RS coupe in the garage that will probably never see the road again.

Yes the die hards are all still around these days. Some of us though like cough Pete cough don't have a Subaru anymore either.

I still wonder what happened to my two WRB 2.RS's. I love my 15 STI but still wish I would have swapped a drive train into an RS.

If Subaru would finally make an STI that was drastically different, I would be interested. I had a '98 RS and upgraded to an '02 WRX that was a huge upgrade. From the WRX I switched to an '09 STI hatch and again it was a drastic change. I am not a big fan of the new styling, but really not a fan of the car having basically the exact same engine, transmission, brakes, and very similar suspension for the last 15 years.

Time for a big change Subaru! I am hopeful that the next gen STI is truly awesome. I will definitely be interested, but I am leaning pretty hard towards an ATS-V or M3 for my next car.

I hear you on the engine but the 15+ chassis is completely different then the other iterations. It really just needs a new engine setup with more power. Even the 17's and newer have better brakes. You've owned just about every chassis as I have 04 WRX, 06 STI, 98 RS, 99 RS, 02 WRX, 11 STI and then my 15 STI.

I love M3's but for the money I can't go that route. Once you are in their price range you aren't much further from GTR money.

Yes, the chassis & body are different. Oh that's right on the brakes, I forgot about the 6 piston front calipers. Same sized rotors though, right?

Anyway, used M3's and ATS's are about the same as a new STI. GT-R is getting closer, but not a car I would get real soon with my 3mo. old daughter. It is on the radar though.

That sounds like fun. I think I did their track day last year (they all kind of start to blend together). What run group do you drive in?

I also did a Lamers track day there last year and ran in the group one step down from "racecar." The straights are so long and the cars have so much power now that my 400 hp G37 just picked off the random Corvette, Mustang, and M3 in the corners that did not know the exact race line. Then they would usually catch me toward the end of the straight. Still fun, but man you need lots of power for that track these days.

Unfortunately I've never had enough request for working on the 6MT to justify buying the tools necessary to do the job. If you only need work done in the extension housing I can help you.
Are you starting to get grinds? The older synchro's tended to wear out sooner than the newer triple cone syncho's in the 06+ transmissions

I sold my 02 Silver Bugeye Wagon in March 2016 in northern Illinois or Wisconsin area and just wanted to know if anyone has seen it or knows how I can find it to see what it looks like now . Here is a link to some of the pictures of it.. https://photos.app.goo.gl/htgunRvM36v7GRTQ8

Anyone doing the Northwoods Shelby Club track day at Road America on Sunday, April 28th? I just signed up and should have my car pretty well sorted for the event. It is $50 cheaper by Friday than later in the month: http://www.nwshelbyclub.com/spring-fling-road-america/

Yeah the grinding is the usual 4th to 5th and 6th down to 5th. The newer synchros will take care of it, but I'm thinking about putting in jdm 5th and 6th gears if I have it cracked open. Might have to be a track only car with that gas mileage. Was hoping someone had tried the scotty cocktail to see if it helped out at all, but that's really just a bandaid.

Yeah lots of people with lots of hp. Some can't corner, some can't brake and some can do it all. I usually run in the second lowest group, that way I get to pass some people lol. Unless it rains, then I can pass alot of people.

I agree- lots of hp and lots of people who cannot brake or corner at that Lamer's track day. There was a Corvette and an M3 that I would catch at the back 1/2 of the track where it gets a bit twistier who would actually try to block me from passing and try to drag me on the straights. They never seemed to notice that once I got by them they never saw me again. So for that reason and the screwy passing rules I am skipping Lamer's track days for good. Well, that and Rollie trying to dive bomb everyone going into the corners.

But I am looking forward to the Northwoods Shelby track day at Road America on the 28th. I did their track day there last year and had a blast.

In my opinion they have some of the best passing zones. Plus it seems most drivers understand that if you caught them you will keep catching them. I give them a break if someone held them up to see if they really have the speed, but usually the high horsepower newbies have the hardest time letting go. Especially to an old sti like mine, nevermind all the suspension mods I have done.

There are lots of people on track who are a little too proud of the brand of car they have to let you pass. I ran into that a lot with my WRX, but surprisingly, not my STI. Now imagine how slow people are to get out of the way for what looks like a relatively stock G37 sedan (at least until they hear it).
