Make sure that you do not bounce the limiter for more than five seconds, if you hold longer any Subaru will pull timing until the key is cycled. Our procedure is to bounce a 6,000 rpm limiter for four seconds, then dump. For an example, go to the national event down at pike peak international or up in Lincoln next year, and it will change your perspective (you seem to have run across the typical person who is attracted to that type of car, as opposed to someone who knows how to drive it). Clutch is not typically the fail point, but rather the CV axles and actual transmission (only in the WRX, the STi has a stronger transmission). I have had two let go over the course of a weekend, but granted, it was an 04 STi that had won nationals in STU several times, so it has been ridden very hard.

Proving to my fellow racers that the disdain that some GT drivers have for V6 drivers is unfounded, one results archive at a time since 2013.
