I forgot about it for a while. It's a shame that the RS community doesnt use this board more, the I-club has become so overwhelmed by the WRX, there are hardly any vendors selling or making new RS parts, it pretty much sucks.

I-club is where I go for the Impreza community. More people check out that forum for things to do and stuff. Technical knowledge and questions I go here with. I sometimes search through the sluff on I-club for info, as there's plenty of it there sometimes.

I also haven't let the fact that the WRX came out and increased the population of owners by atleast 200% get to me.

200%, i'm think more like 1000%. 200% would be 2 times more right? hope my math is still good. there is like 20,000+ members now over there. i don't even think that subaru sold 10,000 2.5RS from 98-00.

No they didnt.
The problem I have is now that I try and search for something specific, I have to go through a bunch of WRX posts for that product just to find one post that has to do with the RS. At least here I know that everything is for my car.

Pretty much that's what I'm suggesting. It seems you guys forgot how to get together and have fun after a few of us moved the last time. I fly out of here on December 18th and I'll be in Maryland (likely Howard County) at the start of Jan.

Segregation by body styles is absolutely ridiculous. To be that petty and self centered as to not accept people because they drive the WRX? Hmmm, then why did you show up to Tim's party the other night Brian? He drives a WRX. He's a "stupid loser" then too, by your definition. And I thought you were "done" with the I-club?

It's not going to help the "problem" by going off and doing you're own thing. Start the idea here, bring it to I-club, and see who else would like to arrive. Look at the pictures from the largest meet on the I-club, held up in New England. 80 something cars, and you can bet that they weren't all GC8's.

Anyway, if you get things going, I'll see if I can attend. Unless my viewpoint makes me one of those "stupid losers". :rolleyes:

I don't care what you drive as long as nobody is a village idiot and acts stupid. Oh and you must chip in for food. That's about it. Its nothing official starting since I'm still in Japan. Jan sometime at the earliest. I might catch up with some Rochester NY people though in December since I'll be getting my car out of storage there.

There's no dislike between what people drive, this club just caters to the 2.5RS, it makes it easy for us to share ideas, tips, etc. Vendors are around only for us, so that makes looking for parts nice and easy.

The I-club in predominently WRX now, nothing wrong with that, its a great car, but it has become increasingly difficult to find parts and other stuff. So, after not visiting here for a while, I decided to try and see who was still interested in bringing the Mid-A up to par on this site.

There is no reason to post this on I-Club, if people want to come over here they can, Iam sure most are happy were they are. Its not a contest either.

Brian, this is Justin by the way.

It's not about accepting the people, as much as accepting the fact that the cars are tremendously different. Different engine, ECU, body panels, seats, guages, tail lights, headlights, etc.

I drive a 1992 Typhoon, and it's based off of the 1992 Jimmy. However, I don't hang out with the Jimmy people because ... guess what ... they are entirely different. Same list as above. Engine, ECU, body panels, seats, guages, okay the tail lights are the same and so are the headlights, but that is about it.

How many other cars are like that? Plenty. Therefore, the RS Club caters to people with the lowly RS and the sparse number of mods for it. Not the WRX because there are too many dissimilarities to do anyone any good.

So... segregation by body styles is a requirement in reality. I personally don't want to wade through WRX, Jimmy, or any other non-identical model list of parts.

That's all.

I think that's the point he is trying to make. If you've got a WRX, great, come hang out, but don't expect to find out what exhaust is best for your car over here because not many of us will know.

Peace.

:D
