Just so we're all aware, changing anything on your car to something other than stock parts makes it incredibly unsafe and unroadworthy and you're definitely going to die. Even if that change makes...

Yeah, sorry I forgot to mention the tire sidewall during a rainstorm. That's called cherry picking, by the way. It's a logical fallacy. And none of these rubber bushings make the car safer for road...

You definitely need a torque wrench and metric socket set. The MTEC springs require a specific socket and some extensions and u-joints. People have messed up the threads on that one, so maybe leave...

Sliding out has nothing to do with how stiff the drivetrain mounts are. That's purely suspension. If you throw 12K springs and massive swaybars on there, then yes. The suspension can't flex and the...

It may have been. I'm from Alabama. Southern English is a degraded dialect of American English, so there's no telling.

That's interesting. I was sort of considering one of those shifters, because the videos of people shifting look so cool. No one mentions the noise, heat, and vibration though. Thanks.

You need to get your friend to buy Arc wheels so you match. Did he wrap his car or paint it? I don't remember Subaru offering that color.

How does the shifter feel?
