  1. Yeah as of my 37,000km oil change I’ve taken over doing the services myself and probably gonna do them more often. I’m waiting to hear back from the dealer most likely next week but if my diff isn’t too shredded I’ll probably just run it and change the oil more often. Up until the week before it broke I was fairly easy on it but I got in the headspace of doing donuts and I probably did like 4+ a day for 4 consecutive day’s... Probably a good thing my axle broke cause I could’ve broken my diff earlier and I’ve been driving all this time with shrapnel in my diff and would’ve caused more damage.

  2. Car’s done 37,000km since 2nd September 2016 when I took delivery, it’s held up pretty good imo. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Got a update from the dealer, axle broke at the cv so I’ve got a complete axle assembly on order, they also drained my rear diff and found “large chunks of metal in the oil” so they’re gonna pop it open and see how damaged it is, I’ll be buying a Cusco LSD if it’s buggered.

  4. Haven’t posted here for a while but it’ll give everyone a good laugh I’m sure. I’ve done over a dozen heli’s in the past week (Bc Christmas skids) and tonight as the rear swung out I heard a mighty bang. I came to a stop, unlocked my centre diff and tried to move, as I let my clutch out the car wouldn’t move and all I could hear was a rattling. I thought I had blown my 1st gear, so I tried 2nd and that rattled too, car still wouldn’t move, thought I’d snapped my main shaft or something. So I tried a bunch of things and then I locked my centre diff and to my relief the car moved. So it was obviously something to do with the back of the car, I thought maybe the diff had blown. I drove the car home then unlocked the centre diff with the handbrake on and in gear, car wouldn’t move but the rattle was there, had a listen around the back of the car and it was rattling on the left side. Looking under the car the back left CV boot on the diff rotates but the axle isn’t. So I’ve either blown my rear left CV joint or I’ve broken my axle where it connects to the CV. According to the internet this happens all the time to guys who drag race their STi’s. 37,000km of being beat on, first major issue, Subaru built these cars bloody well.

  5. Would be neat to go but being Napier based it’s a mission to go to any track
  6. Grabbed off a YouTube video cause I’m not stupid enough (Ya’ll will probably say I am stupid enough) This is gonna be my last post on here cause everything I say just triggers people. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. It’s got a resonator now, sounds deep again, but turns out removing your cats and going 3” stainless downpipe makes your car a S*** ton louder Also it’s a roller dyno... Reason hands are bad positions was bc it was track and being lazy Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Yupppp I tell heaps of stories......... Whenever I post on here it manages to cause a fuss so I’m probably just gonna stop. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. He asked if I had track experience. When did I say the track is inappropriate? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Used to race go carts. Did two track days in dad’s R35 GTR and his 911 Turbo S at Mansfield, wet and dry. Was keeping up with V8 Touring cars in the 911. The track makes cars feel so slow. Even with 580hp the 911 only clipped 220kmh down the Mansfield straight. Also raced motorbikes, jetskis, jetboat and racing buggy’s. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
