Default $10 000 first mod??

Hi i'm fairly new to the modding scene and only just got my first hi performance car (99 rex) and i tlked to a guy from C-red about modifications and he reckons that the first step should be replacing the gear box and drivetrain as it is prone to fukin up the moment i try to get any real hi-performance out of the car, i just wanted to see what the members opinions on this are ie how many of you have had the gearbox fall out and what limitations is the stock system got. in the future id like to be able to drop the clutch from standstill so how much would i have to spend to buy a heavy duty gearbox and drivetrain...the guy from C-red quoted me $10 000 which is almost as much as the car...-_-

Lol

Heres a hint... go to a workshop that specialises in Subarus, and you might get some better advice.

that would be the first step if u were going to rebuild the whole car and change everything

much more better way to spend 1/2 that and get some serious performace

go see the guys at All Star Garage they will sort u out

C-red fella is probably on crack. Go to MMS, ASG, Tenagah, they know what they are doing.

Dont forget RMS aswel, shameless plug hehe. Ummm mate, there are plenty of people pushing 260-300hp with an ordinary gearbox. How about this, for 6k you can get a fuel pump, injectors, new computer,new turbo,different cooler,exhaust tuned and be pushing anywhere of 260hp at the hubs or more.

Or replace your gearbox, get absolutley no gain because technically theres no loss. Wait till your gearbox goes then go from there. In the mean time, like myself, do some research on the best choice of boxes for when/IF yours does decide to break.

what are you going to use the car for?
circut work?
drags?
helis?
or do you want a street car with a bit of poke?

if the answer is helis, blow 10 g on drivetrain

Don't slam through the gear changes. Most boxes break on clumsy shifts not the launch. Replace when broken or if you intend to be really nasty to it.

Disclaimer: If you break your box on launch ignore previous comments.

P.S. Don't forget Race Torque.
