So I’ve been sitting on this issue for quite some time now back on July The 25th To be exact I bought a shift knob from @anarchymotive because I thought they made custom shift knobs and i saw plenty of shift knobs on their page that were custom. I wanted to have a 1 of 1 shift knob. the person in charge of the IG page and the one that processed my order and money stated that the shift knob would take 7-9 weeks from order date to be completed “estimated time frame” . Towards the end of the estimated time I DM’d the IG page a couple times just to see if maybe the product was finished but i was very passive when asking because I knew it would take time to make the knob. After some time i was told that the knob was close to done and that it was getting some quality Control work done and it would ship in a week. The product never shipped and I Dm’d the account to demand my shift knob or money back and was met with the response on the last slide. I can be certain i am not getting a shift knob nor my money back at this point and seeing as it’s been about 20 weeks total since i paid. Just thought I’d share. It might save someone some money, time and frustration. I’m happy with my #raceseng set up I could care less now 🖕🏼
Battery died on the MKIV last night. It lasted 5 years and 11 months. Not bad! Put a fresh Duralast Gold in today and she fired right back up. Put my CR shift boot back on along with a brushed @raceseng Slammer. On a side note, I’ve owned this car for just over 10 years now. I bought it in Hawaii in November 2008 with 46K miles and took it with me to Anchorage, AK, in Jan 2011. After three very cold winters, I shipped it out here to the east coast. She’s been very good to me over the years. Only repairs have been typical of older cars, not counting replacing the clutch twice bc it’s Revo Stage 2 and I used to beat the absolute f*** out of this car. She’s got 158K miles now and still runs great. This was my first turbo car and my first VW and I fell in love. MKIV ❤️
Not my words but those of @lightningblue.s550
@raceseng Really Does Out Due Themselves With Their Products This Slammer Black Translucent Is Slick And Sexy! Not To Mention Pairing It Up With Their Black Reverse Lockout Really Ties Everything Together! The Weighted Knob is 1000x Better Than The Stock Knob. @raceseng Has My Vote As The Best Shifter And Reverse Lockout Comb Hands Down!
"There will come a time in your life where you won’t be so worried about how far you still have to go. You’ll just be grateful by the way the universe has guided you through your journey all throughout the years."
My three favorite mods. All of them connect me to the machine I love. Every dollar spent was worth it over and over again. @tawchicago @raceseng and @rennline you are at the top of your game. Thanks for your innovation and inspiration.
Love me when you're ready, not when you're lonely.
I don't know myself, so there's no way you know me.
If I hold you down, then you better hold me 'cause I can't risk it all for you if you don't see that I'm all for you.
The Cockpit And Lights
(It's What's On The Inside That Counts)
Showcasing my interior and lighting. Never shared them much as a whole until now.
From the non reflective carbon fiber Di-Noc interior trim, to the Raceseng weighted shift knob mounted on the K4RT30Y short throw shifter, DIY red footwell lighting, Prosport Premium oil gauges inside the SMY gauge cluster, and the Subispeed KV alcantara/leather steering wheel. Everything I see and feel in the car is about setting the environment of being fully engaged with the drive and knowing what's going on.
It's not uncommon to find Subaru interiors lacking in the latest infotainment technology and utter nonsense in the cabin as they've always been simple, equipped with what you need and only need, unlike other competitors. And I added very minimal amount of extra necessities to improve the driving experience without being distracted as a whole.
As for lighting, pretty much just the basic upgrades, with a few tweaks in between. I may go for Diode Dynamics Switchback C-Lights in the future but in the meantime, I don't need super expensive lighting to transform the car into a disco dance show. As always, I manually do it myself. 🤣🤣🤣
My WRX is a far cry from a trailer queen. But you might see it at a show or two. It's nowhere close to being a dedicated track machine. But it might run an open track day here and there. Rally monster? Nope. But it'll cruise on dirt/gravel roads for camping if need be. This is my daily driven Subaru. Rain or shine, sleet or snow, hell or hail. I may have a few screws loose, but one of my favorite things to do is drive in the rain... Especially in a heavy downpour. Practically no other cars on the back roads during my drive home. The adrenaline rush... It's like a drug.
Finally got around to installing my @raceseng weighted shift knob. Pictures do not do justice on the color. Did not see the reason for a weighted shift knob until I tried one! New shift boot and black jdm shift ring installed as well (now just need the black traction buttons 😊). Exhaust is still on backorder 🤪
