Negative. Broke the second RS transmission a few weekends ago at a test and tune. I'm not even going to bother putting another one in.. just going to find a JDM 6 speed.

I think the lightweight flywheel is causing the issue. The transmission breaks doing shifts near redline in higher gears... worked completely fine driving it on the street.

I'm probably just going to find a non-DCCD trans. I don't even want to bother with all of that since this is a track car.

In the meantime I'm still waiting for my 2015 WRX to come in. I'll just autocross it in the meantime, haha.

2002 RS Transmission and RS hydraulic pedal box installed, clutch pedal is so much better.

Ordered MSI rear adjustable camber plates to fix the camber issue in the rear. Hopefully I'll be ready for Putnam Park raceway next month.
