Lolz.. Bro, i`m not into performance stuff.. Just wish to make it more lighter when pickup. Any suggestions on cheap & good ways to do it ?

Better pick up uh, let's see... can think of lighten ur ride like

- remove spare tire

- change seats (to lighter seats lah)

- change to cf boot ect

- forged rims

- change to smaller tire (if u r on 235/245 change to 225 enough liao)

 

also can help by lighten the load at crank like

- change to lighten crank pulley (Perrin so far i feel is the lightest)

- change to w40 engine (if u r on w50 or w60)

 

also can help ur engine breath better by

- changing high flow filter

- de-cat (if ur ride has 2, de-cat 1 can already)

 

all the above mention can all help a little here & there & there is 1 method tt driver can feel the most effect is to have it tune (factory setting is too conservative)

btw, tt was how i started... did onli stock tune & the poison got into me :cry:

Hi bro, welcome to this thread :)

 

Thanx Bro!

 

Anyway, for better pickup, have u ever thot of converting to FWD? I know it defeats the purpose of a AWD but the pickup is much better and saves fuel. Handling wise is not that bad. 1 of the guys has done it and IMHO its quite impressive.

 

Do give it a thot.

 

Cheers!

Best mod save the money sell the car buy a faster one. Thats wat i did no regrets :)

 

Its never ending... after a while you will think that your faster car is not fast anymore, then you gotta buy a faster car.

Sometimes, the fun and enjoyment is in the modding itself. Ppl riding hayabusa, the world fastest bike back then, also keep modding to make it faster... that's when money can't buy a faster bike :thumb:

Well e main thing i wan is to improve e pickup only cos Ts is heavy. I`m not into making it to go high speed in e shortest time or wan the "G" force. Cos normally i only drive ard 80km/h - 90km/h. I prefer to enjoy e ride n not e chill feel :p

change to FWD pick up maybe faster but slower in & out of corner, less stable & u will loss the all other advantages of AWD handling :nono:

i removed my spare b'cos i have never needed it for the pass 10yrs driving in SG, furthermore we r on tubeless so tire won't go completely falt unless u leave it unattended for couple of days. btw if u have upgraded ur brakes then the spare tires prob will not fit anymore

$200++ for de-cat!!! boy that sound ex to me. i did my below $200 with DynoTech in Paya Ubi.

personnally modification of my ride is not all abt how fast it will go :dot: it is the process of seeing my car "grow" both in strenght & maturity. i m not the fastest (ohli 362bhp) on road but each time i can throw my ride into a corner & pull it out & far far away from cars much more powerful then my... the feeling is really satifying :thumb:

Totally agree. If only I can pluck money off the tree. At one point, felt regret trading my EH for this current ride, ts.. But wat the hey.. Overall just a good family sedan at best. No point doing mods on a ts. Unless u toking bout swapping to a 2.5 NA engine, at the end of the day, It's still a TS.

If ur ride's a Rex, then......

Current ride>>

motorcycle

 

Previous rides>>

Skateboard

Bicycle

Non-LTA approve electric bicycle

Skate Scooter

Bus no 11

Have u tried a FWD TS? I drove it before and its not as bad as i previously thot. FWD and AWD driving techniques are different so its not necessary true that its slower in and out of corner. For imprezza TS i m very sure it will be better but not for WRX or STI cos the torque is too much and FWD will probably cause it to lose traction (wheel spin?) when throttle is applied as compared to AWD.

 

Anyway, the rule of thumb of track is slow in and fast out. With FWD, faster pickup means faster out than a AWD. (With the correct driving technique). :)

 

Just my 2 cents worth.

bro, u r right diff setup requires diff skill set.

always this saying for taking corners - Slow in Fast out. Fast in never come out :lol:

personal experince (with my avg lvl limited driving skill) is AWD allows me to brake in for corners later & pull out earlier, more aggressive as i have more confident of its traction & less worry of over steer :thumb:

as for TS, sorry i have never own 1.
