  1. short throw shifter for manual transmission

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I used to have an '06 Scion tC with the five speed. I added the TRD short shift kit which was great. I see TRD has a couple of these for the FR-S/86. Any experience and recommendations on what to get? You could say I am trying to shorten the throw distance when shifting. Thank you in advance...
  2. No starting, weird whine

    Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    So, I'm having a weird starting issue. I just rebuilt the motor, and everything was going smoothly, until I went to press the start button. I get a "pop" from the starter, but it doesn't turn. Even weirder, I get this whine while it seems to be trying to get the starter motor going. I've checked...
  3. BRZ as a second car?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Hi, I've been on the hunt to replace my 2011 Outback for something a little more fun to drive. Occasionally I still need the utility, so I was ordinarily discounting the BRZ or WRX because I needed something bigger, but my coworker suggested I look into keeping the 2011 (which is in great...

  9. Subframe bushings first

    Subaru BRZ Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Thinking of suspension or tire mods? Do yourself a favour and fit rear subframe bushing inserts first. Whiteline from Australia are now on my BRZ. Fantastic upgrade. At the same time fit a transmission mount insert bushing. Firms up the shift action perfectly, almost more important than...

    Hello! I just test drove a '13 BRZ with about 18k miles on it and only noticed one thing wrong. When pulling away from a stop in 1st gear for the first couple seconds it would make a loud clunking/rattle that sounded like it was coming from between the shifter and the storage tray behind it.

  16. Just got a BRZ, I'm new to manual, and 1st gear is proving to be a challenge.

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I got a 2013 BRZ manual transmission yesterday. I've got about 2 hours of practice (half solo) and I constantly screw up getting into first gear. Once I'm in first I have no problem going to 2nd or 3rd and back down. I've watched a lot of youtube videos and had a friend ride with me for about...
