  1. Went to pop in release bearing to pressure plate, heard the retainer ring pop off and fall inside the pressure plate.... tools down and walk away. Fast forward a few weeks, drop 6 speed out alone, remove and fit new Exedy bearing cage and retainer ring and reinstall gearbox. Photo shows the original ring on the left and Exedy on the right, difference being the diameter which would affect stiffness. 102720705_257260048866316_3296020440696848864_n by Aaandy Livingstone, on Flickr
  2. Took the old legacy skid racing last weekend IMG_2000 by Aaandy Livingstone, on Flickr IMG_1919 by Aaandy Livingstone, on Flickr
  3. Made up a bracket from scrap alloy angle using a grinder and a drill. No work bench so a jack and vice grips will have to do 24008530_10155981498886385_403940385_n by Aaandy Livingstone, on Flickr 24133852_10155981498756385_1728933710_n by Aaandy Livingstone, on Flickr 24008363_10155981498826385_56321444_n by Aaandy Livingstone, on Flickr 24133408_10155981498666385_2103538931_n by Aaandy Livingstone, on Flickr
  4. Should be fine with cutting the bare minimum and getting away with no cert. Old rs has piping under the headlight and passed vtnz warrants no issue.
  5. 5 Star alarm with standalone GPS tracker hidden in hard to access location. Siren hidden in unaccessible location without jacking up the car. Jacking up car = alarm to activate. 2 Kill switches. Another tip would be to disconnect the linkage on the key lock to stop them screwdriving the lock - only works if you have remote central locking.
  6. Automatic 94 legacy gt. Was "fast" enough for a 16 year old
  7. Being caught on mobile phone is $80 fine and 20 demerits. I personally think they should raise it to $150 and 35 demerits. Always see people at their phones at traffic lights and they dont notice its gone green until i toot then they decide to go through intersection at a late orange/early red....
  8. I got a AVS S5 installed few months back, seems to be better than nothing. Also due to Adikts unfortunate story i decided against the AVS GPS and went with Snitch GPS (Also being half the price over 3 years helps).
  9. Ideally just looking to increase traction and also be able to control the slide if the back kicks out. Havent had much luck with standard subaru lsds so looking to go aftermarket. R160 so can just buy the lsd unit and put my 3.9 crownwheel on it. Not really wanting it to be fully locked but somewhere around the 60-70% mark. What would your guesses be for how many kms it can go before a full tear down and rebuild? Just looking to do the rear diff and im not interested in pulling apart the gearbox just yet to swap diffs. Thanks for your replys
  10. Just a few questions 1. Anywhere that i can buy for cheaper? Currently $1800 without shipping 2. Are they better than factory lsd? As in are the worth the money
  11. Anyone had experience with a R160 1.5-2 way diff such as in the link below? https://www.rallysportdirect.com/part/limited-slip-differentials/cus-lsd-183-l15-cusco-rs-rear-lsd-1-5-way-r160
  12. Need some help with my sisters 4th gen 3.0 legacy. She stats that when turning on the car, there is a loud humming noise that will last around 20 seconds. Also after the car has turned off, loud humming noise lasting about 20 seconds. Have ruled out: -Still happens with no cds in the cd player -Still happens with the A/C off -Still happens with the fan/blower off Video below [video=youtube_share;ijTChBiKE7I] Any ideas?
