Re: What happened around here?

The numbers have declined over time, Delvian. We used to be 600+ strong membership IIRC, now I believe its around 300-350. The percentage of those who are "active" members is unknown, but probably rather small. You are always going to get the odd aggressive or unsociable person anywhere. ...

Re: What happened around here?

Harbs, so in your book - anyone from outside victoria is an outsider and I'm an "outsider" despite being a forum member for over 5 years and having contributed over 1000 posts. The reality is people read posts, they make judgements - your last post just told anyone looking at this thread w...

Re: What happened around here?

Off Topic. Please explain why having a GT3 and competing in Targa Tas has anything to do with why this forum is dying? Lets not turn this thread into a pissing contest. :roll: Harbs, you are missing the point - the commentary by rip man is typical of forums and became progressively more so on this ...

Re: What happened around here?

There are many reason why the forum is dying and little has to do with facebook........ Another arrogant, self indulgent post by one of the new "End Users" by the sounds of things. I'm sure this poster has elaborated elsewhere on the specifics of the shortcomings of the FA engine head des...

Re: What happened around here?

There are many reason why the forum is dying and little has to do with facebook 1) Many years ago the WRX and more specifically the STI were almost unique, now there are multiple choices e.g. Golf R, Focus RS, A45AMG etc 2) Many of the problems of reasonably powered FWD have been ironed out e.g. RS2...

Re: Brake shudder when hot (track day)

Differential build up on the brake rotors.....mainly the fronts The B Spec pads are rated to around 500 degrees C (so you will kill them or have killed them), the RC-09s used to be a good pad but need to be warmed up (200 to 800 degrees), H12 are also good for cross over type use and are rated from ...

Re: 2015 wrx parts and accessories

You don't need to worry about hub rings (for hub centric mounting)..........also with offsets it better to stay as close to stock where possible - stops excessive wear and tear on the bearings :) and ensures optimal suspension geometry.

Re: Wrx 2015 Cold Air intake??

If you change your intake you will need a tune, if you don't get a tune it is likely your engine will start running lean..........

The options for reliable tuning of FA engined cars are relatively limited

Re: Bren Tuning in the US on MY15 WRX and MY15 STI

1) OK, post their reply (also you will probably need a Cobb access port - I am pretty sure this is what Bren operates through, if you call Cobb and tell them you're from Australia they probably wont sell you one - unless you claim logging only -even then it may not hookup with Aus models - online $6...

Re: Bren Tuning in the US on MY15 WRX and MY15 STI

This would be a very big mistake.....however if you call them, they will and should tell you this and why. They will start with the car, differences, climatic differences, altitude differences and then get into fuel differences - they use AKI based ratings which are (ron+mon/2), however this is not ...
